This is an absolutely top class restaurant. The food is amazing, the service is first class and the ambiance is great. Had the Octopus Carpaccio for starters which was superb and my wife's chicken livers were equally amazing. The seared tuna mains in a pepper sauce was one of the best dishes I have ever had in my life. My wife's salmon was brilliant as well. The service was very good and the drinks menu was good. This is a hundred times better than Grub & Vine up the road.

We've been staying in Cape Town for a couple of months, and this place is our go to place for italian food. Great service, nice location and good food. We've been there more than five times while beeing here, and will for sure go again before leaving. Never disapointing, always providing the same good experience.

As a local who eats out regularly I was unimpressed with the standard of food at this restaurant. The prices are high considering the standard of food you are receiving especially when there are better restaurants in the area. The menu reads incredible but the execution of the meal is average with a very heavy hand with over powering flavors. It is a situation of name is more than the actual experience.

The wine selection is good and booking is essential otherwise a very hip hostess with turn you away at the door.

My opinion is there are far better restaurants for better prices in the area.
