This restaurant has a high standard of food and a buzzing and relaxed atmosphere. It is so consistent and I have not visited it for a year.
The food was as ever excellent with a delicious Porcini mushroom starter
followed by veal ribs al limone. The food was beautifully presented and served. We also had a bottle of the
Sutherland Syrah which was very good as well. Deserts and coffee followed. There is also ample parking around the restaurant with a
security guard.

Tightly run, well supervised, food delicious, was very noisy but sound proofing has made this a special restaurant, very Italian, run by, I believe, a non Italian family! Pricey but good value on both the food and the extensive wine lists, which I recall had Italian wines as well as SA on offer.

A group of us had a good dinner here. The menu has lots of choice and is not too pricey. Good atmosphere and service. Need to book tables as it is popular.

Excellent dinner. Very busy night with many big tables but staff were extremely attentive. One of tbe reasons we chose it was because it had gluten free choices. Our daughter is a coeliac so any cross contamination can make her ill but she was pleased with a good choice so not left to feel out of it. As we are finding out in south africa the portions are very big. Excellent value for money

Appreciate your kind and gracious comment, Richard. Yes, we are full most nights between 7:00pm and 8:30pm, but feel free to pop in at 6:00pm without a booking.
