Attentative friendly staff in a quiet suburb of Johannesburg, the Italian food was tasty and well presented, and very good value. The service was as quick or slow as we wanted and we were able to sit outside not on a main road. Very enjoyable...More

This is a true Italian restaurant, not a pizzeria, although they do have fantastic pizzas. The Italian salad is a divine starter and all the main courses are good. As a special they have an oxtail pasta which you have to ask for but is...More

Unpretentious and laid back atmosphere on a Friday afternoon suits us just fine. It gets busy at times but if you go at 2.30 for late lunch, it is quite and relaxing. The halloumi is brilliant. Not over done and just salty enough to be...More
