What a great little restaurant. The food, service and ambiance are really good. Great meals all round, hand made pasta and real family service. This place is certainly going to become a firm favorite.

From the moment we walked into this quaint restaurant, we knew we were in for a treat. Friendly and charming service and a mouth-watering menu, made for a fabulous lunch. The 4 P’s pappardelle was delicious as was the tiramisu. Cannot wait to return! Grazie mille!

Up a flight of steps in de Waterkant, a little Italian gem sits unassumingly above street level, baring the most delicious Italian fare. It was authentic with homemade pasta and interesting sauce combinations. Loved it.!!

This meal has been the highlight of our South Africa trip so far, and we wish we could go back again! Delicious homemade pasta and the server made recommendations that we were so glad we followed. We’re vegetarian and there was no sacrifice! Changing specials every night, flavour with every bite, romantic atmosphere but also okay for groups. Book ahead as it’s small and we saw many people turned away. Accepts credit cards. Not wheelchair accessible. Set back from the street and on the second floor, so a little hard to find.

Small interesting rustic Italian family tavern -Osteria means Tavern. Managed and run by an Italian family the Tarantino’s. Food is freshly prepared by a family member, then served by a family member. Food was delicious, nice sized portions.
