We had a fabulous evening at Osteria Tarantino and can highly recommend this little gem. Enrico and his team were awesome and the food delicious. Try the Tuscan Cigars and the Saltimbocca but I am sure everything else are just as tasty. Grazie Enrico and hope to see you soon x Deidre & William

Great pastas, very Italian experience. Takes time as they do everything from scratch, so come when you are not in a hurry.

Enrico and his team serve the best pasta in Cape Town. We love this little restaurant! Always friendly. The 4P’s is my favourite, but any dish is delicious.

Ok first of all - Enrico, the owner, wow. Tutto bene. I hope that’s correct for “everything was amazing”. We were three couples and we enjoyed a three course meal during the lockdown in South Africa. I have travelled to Italy many times and I have learned and accepted that true Italian cuisine is simply not available here. We simply dont have the same ingredients. Or so I thought. Thank you Enrico and team for proving me wrong but also ruining all local “Italian food” not made by you. We loved it. Enrico is an amazing host and made us feel welcome from the get-go. We couldn’t decide who’s food was better so I have to recommend it all: the 4Ps (bianco and normal), truffle ravioli, gnocchi with gorgonzola and pasta with meat and pork sausage. We will be back very,very soon. Ciao!
