My first night in Cape Town I was introduced to Ferndinando's Pizza (yes, it's in the Lonely Planet favorites as well) and I had a great time. LOvely cocktails, great wine, and a fantastic choice of pizza's! Difficult to choose because they were all so nice. Also the breadsticks with aioli they serve as an appetizer are really great. And when you get there, don't forget to read the very romantic lovestory they have written out in the menu.. worth it!

By far the best service, food and atmosphere in Observatory...possibly the best pizza in Cape Town!
Central to backpackers and other bars in Observatory, it really is an great place to go with friends, family, or if you want to have a date :)
I would go on a tuesday to thursday for the latter however, as Friday night at Ferdinando's is often fully booked and super busy!

The story of Ferdinando’s almost eclipses the quality of the food they service. A cute Capetonian girl met a handsome, hairy Latin lover and they got a dog called Ferdinando. The place is all about exceptional pizza, some of which come with a cream base instead of the traditional tomato and mozzarella, and they also do outstanding ravioli with burnt butter and sage and phenomenal gnocchi. Plus, their breadsticks with aioli are insanely addictive. And you may well be surprised to hear a broiling belly laugh emerge from your middle when Kiki stands on a stool to announce a session of laughter therapy. Got to go if you’re in Cape Town. And so long as your dogs are nice to Ferdinando, they’re welcome.

Exciting pizza with a difference - forget about Hawaiian, Regina or any other pizza you ever saw on a menu. Definitely a good challenge for your taste buds. As is the decor on your senses!

The pizza here is excellent, fresh, and original! Many options to choose from that you won't find anywhere else! Quick service, great recommendations from the staff, and UNO cards at every table for the wait.
