Positioned on the R62. First property on the right - entering from Oudtshooren Last property as you leave Calitzdorp - on the left. Look out for our Italian flags on our mobile display donkey cart and trailer.
What an unexpected treat after an unplanned stop whilst driving though the Karoo. Family owned and run, and it shows on the plate. Simple but authentic Italian fare. Lovely views, and charming host. Don’t hesitate to stop if you’re hungry and driving by...

Thanks for the review - glad you enjoyed your visit - hope to see you again.

Perfect venue for a nice glass of Calitzdorp wine and homemade pizza at lunchtime. Giovanni and Wendy are great hosts and the view is outstanding if you enjoy gazing towards the Swartberg Mountains and enjoying the peace and tranquility. You have the choose of sitting...outside and enjoying the heat or inside with the comfort of airconditioning.More

Lovely views, friendly service and great named pizza’s! This was a lunch stop for a group of 8 friends between Prince Albert and Swellendam. We were a little dismayed when we arrived, because it was more "rustic" than we had expected. The charming hosts quickly...recovered the spirit of our group, who enjoyed their humor and how they handled this large group of noisy Americans. The menu could have been a little more extensive, especially for non-meat eaters, but overall a very pleasant experience and a surprise in such a small town. Definitely highly recommended.More

Hi Peter v
An interesting review - thanks for the comments, which are appreciated to allow for improvement.
Our food is prepared daily and changes from day to day - we have several vegetarian dishes.
We will strive to add more vegetarian variety dishes.
