The atmosphere is like sitting at your granny's kitchen at home. Sharing a meal and memories with a true authentic Italian vibe. The interior with the lamp shades and mirrors are so unique. The service from the owner to the waiters was of exceptional standard and the food was AMAZING. True Italian home made quality deliciousness, made with so much love and passion and real value for money. Thank you Mizio for making our last night in Cape Town so memorable and special. We look forward to our next with meal with you when we visit again..... Jacque & Jacqueline

What a lovely restaurant. The interior is quirky and the food is true Italian Mamma style. The trip there is beautiful as you drive through the beautiful Gardens neigbourhood. A true favourite amongst the locals. Highly recommended
