Delicious, authentic, homemade pasta dishes. Portions are just the perfect size. Service was fabulous. Worth a visit!

Delicious pasta and a unique experience. This quaint unassuming spot in the middle of the CBD is like a little treasure find. We loved the 'cousins pasta' that gets made in front of you in a giant wheel of Parmesan. Service is excellent and attentive. The restaurant seems to get full quickly so book in advance! However, they still squeezed us in. Cape Town restaurants can often be pretentious but this spot has a lovely, warm, family feeling.

Keep it simple--do the carbonara. It is excellent. The service and ambiance were very good here. Ate here three nights in a row.
