I found this restaurant after perusing Trip Advisor and as we were going to a show they managed to squeeze us in for an early dinner. You wouldn't just happen upon this place as it's tucked away but what a magnificent little find.
It's small and authentic, the decor is simple but tasteful and we could have been transported to a small Italian Trattoria. The hosts are fabulous, knowledgeable and super cool. The food was delicious, beautiful and simple. Everything was simply moreish. We can't wait to go back.

I went with a large group of friends for a birthday lunch. Truly Italian - family-run with freshly cooked fare, of the most delicious kind.

We shared platters of antipasti to start - generous and fresh and tasty - and then had various pasta and meat dishes, all of which were declared amazing! I'm still dreaming about my 4Ps!

This is a hidden-away gem in De Waterkant ... Do yourselves a favour and find it.

What a fabulous find. The best restaurant we've been to in Cape Town! Five stars are not enough to do justice to the delicious food and fabulous service. Enrico and family are hands on, attentive and treat everyone like old friends. Did I mention that the food was amazing. We will definitely be back when next in Cape Town. Thank you.
