Description: Where Cape Town meets the world and the world meets Cape Town! The mother city's most famous meeting point and people-watching spot. An authentic corner of Italy offering friendly, efficient service and delicious traditional Italian fare served for breakfast, lunch and dinner. From beef carpaccio, chourico & peppadews in brandy with fresh basil, mussels in a creamy white wine sauce and Italian-style calamari to an array of meat and pasta dishes, fresh salads, huge stir-fries and mouthwatering gourmet panini sandwiches, including some popular vegetarian dishes. Also famous for their 16 Italian gelato ice cream flavors and genuine hospitality, to be found at the very heart of the bustling V&A Waterfront, South Africa's number one tourist destination and one of the most beautiful working harbor locations in the world. Enjoy an authentic Italian coffee and watch the world going by in a casual, relaxed atmosphere at this bustling Italian sidewalk café. Not to be missed...

Lots of outside seating, a little too close together for my taste...but good service and pretty decent food...stick with the pizzas and pastas to really get a good deal...drinks menu expansive...all in all a place to eat a quick and satisfying meal, family oriented too...

We had baby kingclip but were not enthusiastic about it, probably because it was on the greasy side. However we liked the french fies and salad.
The seating outside with overhead heaters was quite comfy.

Dined alone on a Saturday evening and what a pleasant experience it was. The delicious food, great service and chilled vibe was just perfect! The calamari for entree was fresh and tasty. Steak for Main was perfectly cooked to my liking!! Highly recommend.

Good Italian food with some extra local alternatives on the menu. Tasty and reasonably priced but does tend to get very busy so not the place for a quiet romantic meal.
