Description: From the boot shaped peninsula, we are proud to bring you the flavours from our ancestors offering you a selection of Pizza, Pasta and Salads and more, complementing this little corner of Italy. Established in 1990, we arrived in Cape Town in 1995. All dishes well served giving you the hearty feel. Whether it is the first time you visit or if you one of our own, we will look after you like part of the “Familia”. Service comes with a smile. Our venue offers a space, full of life, and friendly atmosphere, with outside areas accommodating 100 people and also an inside area for the Cozy Winter nights with seating for 100 people. Be part of memories that are made, patrons that cheer with the sound of glass clinking, garlic aromas from Papa’s recipes and the wooden oven that uses it’s flames to softly touch all ingredients, and magically bring to you food that will make your taste buds feel in Paradise. Round off your evening by sitting with us, and share our amore for “la Vita”.

Visited on a Saturday evening without booking and managed to squeeze in on a table alfresco with another couple. great Pizza and you get a doggy bag too. We really enjoyed this place it was just 5 minutes from where we were staying and we could eat outside. It had a good atmosphere and we enjoyed chatting with locals.

I've been to Bacinis many times before but this evening I went to Bacinis on a lovely Saturday evening with my son and walked into the restaurant and was immediately not impressed with the service. We had to wait minutes before a member of staff greeted us, we were then finally shown a table inside by the kitchen. We sat down and ordered drinks, our drinks came and then our conversation was interrupted by a manager screaming and shouting at kitchen staff multiple times. We thought this would stop so we carried on with our drinks, the shouting did not stop. We very seldomly complain (this is my first review on tripadvisor) we called the waitress over and asked if we could please move tables because we could not stand the shouting from the manager any longer. The waitress informed us that there was no more tables outside and that they were fully booked. We thought we could try ignore the shouting for one last time but once again we were interrupted by shouting. We then asked the waitress for the bill for our drinks because it was unpleasant and uncomfortable sitting at the table. We then paid for our drinks and proceeded to leave when on the way out I approached the manager and said "are you the manager?" And the manager said "yes why?" And then I said "I feel that you speak to your staff in an appalling way in front of your customers" and then she replied "tell someone who cares" I fell this is unexpected treatment from a manager of a well known Italian restaurant who holds a great reputation in Cape Town, so I feel very disappointed at the experience that I had a Bacinis this evening and I fell that no manager should speak to customers like that.

We always try to have a meal here when we're in Cape Town because it's always good. Unpretentious, always busy, quick service, tasty Italian food.

Checked this place out for an early dinner and we were pleasantly surprised. A nice vibey place, cozy atmosphere and great smells coming out of the kitchen make you want to order everything on the menu. We opted for Caprese salad and the grilled chicken salad plus a nice bottle of sauvignon blanc. Our waitress was superbe, friendly, efficient. Brought out some ice without having to be asked about it - yep, we will be coming back.

We came here from Rosedene on the first night of our holiday, loved it so much, returned for the next three nights! Excellent Italian cuisine, and exceptional local wines, the owners and staff are a joy, we will return. Thank you all at Bacini's for lovely atmospheric evenings.
