This place is so popular you have to book. The food is amazing and the service always great. It's typically crowded and feels like you're eating in an Italian restaurant in Italy. The veal dishes are wonderful and the tuna carpaccio is unbeatable.

There are quite a few fresh, funky spots around in Cape Town that serve authentic Italian fare...Magica Roma is different! Visualise Italian restaurants in the 70's...carpets, double table cloths, waiters with jackets and napkins over their forearms...breadsticks on the table, etc. Hope you get the picture. I like that retro vibe. The food is also retro...no deep-fried and stuffed mozzarella de buffalo here. No, its classic pastas, very good pizza, veal dishes and good steaks.

Great place and frequented mainly by locals and the food is awesome. Even it is not in the tourist zone it is a must to visit.

What a great find! Great Italian food with good, attentive service in a smallish family establishment.... what more could you ask for? Steak to perfection and sauces to rival the Masterchefs. If you enjoy good food in a casual setting, look no further than this find !
