“Great pizza great vibe”
Review of Borussos

Borussos
Ranked #237 of 1 288 Restaurants in Cape Town Central

Borusso's has had a good reputation for years and years and it is well deserved. The rustic.....even slightly tatty decor somehow improves the vibe. The staff are young, friendly and cheerful as well as efficient, and the pizza....... well it is the best in Cape Town IMHO. And well priced too.
Definitely well worth repeat visits again and again!

We loved these guys. Brilliant array of pizzas on the menu, great pasta options too. Three times in six nights, we wandered up the street to a comfortably full restaurant. They had Aussie connections, which made for great banter between chefs and customers (us). Try the variety of bears on offer too.

This establishment has been going for years & you will always find something on the menu that is tasty. It also has a small garden that the children can play.
We have been going for years but recently have just found it to be tired and dingy.
The waiter was indifferent and the inside/outside area with uneven tables and plastic chairs could be tidied up a bit especially to make it more comfy.

The food was good in this warm, family-feel restaurant, and the fire in the fireplace next to our table just added something extra to the romantic feel. The pizza is better sit-down than take-away.

I love this local spot down a side alley on a corner in Kenilworth. Easy to miss the first time. Whether wanting a casual romantic evening for two or out with friends and family, this pizza pasta place is perfect. The cosy nooks, the eclectic choice of mismatched chairs and old tables, funky painted walls and blackboard specials are all fabulous but the food is always consistently great. Thin based pizzas are excellent and just the right size. Pastas are yum. They could improve their coffee but then again don't come here for that. They don't take bookings so get here early or be prepared to wait.
