Absolutely delicious food. My husband loves Italian food but as a gluten intolerant person, Italian food can be tricky - or so thought until today. Everything was so fresh and so tasty. We loved it and will be back for sure. 10/10

We had trouble deciding on our food as there were so many appealing options. our final choices encompassed a rage, a seafood pasta and a risotto. All were excellent, paired with a beautiful red wine and were finished with three gelato choices. The service was fun, attentive and knowledgeable. We want to come back! Miss you already xx

Superb. Probably the best Italian restaurant I’ve ever been too. Visited circa 79 countries and 200+ cities and let’s face it we all do out for Italian food. But this has to be the best tasting meal I have ever had. And being from London the price of £70 for a 3 course meal for 2 and a bottle of wine is mind blowing.

When we left we booked another table for the next night and our last night in Cape Town.

They managed to fit a hungry two in, thank heavens. We'd eaten well but Italian is our soul food. Walking from the hotel in the semi-darkness that is now the world of "load shedding" the restaurant beamed like a small sun out of the darkness, festooning us with both smiles and aromas. We ate well, choosing conservatively but was rewarded with the love we hoped for. Like all busy places, you need to be firm as to your needs, and precise, and that worked a treat.

Food and people are lovely, but the waitress was very rude. After we gave her a tip she came back that it wasn’t enough and gave us a very angry face. We determine the tip, not the waitress, otherwise include this on the bill. We felt intimidated by her and left the restaurant with a very negative feeling
