The waiter who served us, along with Enrico, the owner, were phenomenally friendly.

The food was absolutely delicious, and reminded me a lot of my time travelling through rural Italy. It was extremely simple, but high in quality and abundant in taste.

I personally recommend the 4P ravioli with tomato-based sauce.

Enhancing the setting, the background classical music was delightful, giving a real sense of Italy in the restaurant. The presence, taste, and style of Italy were evident in everything

We visited on a Monday night and it was so good we had to come back for Lunch the next day before our flight out of Cape Town.

One of the best restaurants around - cannot recommend you visit here strongly enough! Go go go.

Amazing food. Unpretentious restaurant. On a quiet street. Best pasta dishes. The owner is very kind. The service is great.
