We hadn't planned to go here after walking out of another restaurant further up Kloof Street due to being ignored, but we were glad we did. From walking in we were met by very friendly staff and were offered seating outside or in, smoking or non smoking. A good start. Note, smoking and non smoking sections are not seated directly next to each other. Since it was still in the high 70s, humid and strangely for Cape Town in November not blowing a gale, we decided to eat outside and were given a choice of seats overlooking Kloof Street. We already knew we'd made the right choice to leave the previous place. The waiter who we later learned was the manager took our order. To start we shared a small Italian salad and a Focaccia with feta, garlic and herbs and caramelised onions. Very nice. For mains, she who must be obeyed ordered Pasta Anabella with courgettes, mushrooms, asparagus and olives, sautéed in olive oil and garlic with a hint of napoletana and mozzarella (delicious I'm told) and I had a Lasagne di Agnelo which was layers of roast Lamb, pesto infused sweet potato, with a rosemary sauce and pasta. I've never had Lamb in a lasagne before but trust me you won't be disappointed with this. All this washed down with a bottle of Porcupine Ridge Sauvignon Blanc at a reasonable R129. The entire bill came in just under R500 which I feel for the centre of Cape Town was fairly decent. Couple that with the thoroughly relaxed atmosphere and friendly and attentive staff and manager and it all blended together to form a lovely experience. We're moving on from Cape Town, travelling for a month but we already know where we'll be eating on our first night back.
