Ideal venue for a good lunch, plenty of free parking available with car guard on duty. Free wifi available. This restaurant is fill with plenty of sporting memobilia with numerous sporting jerseys on the ceiling. Had their Mama Spaghetti Bolognese which was tasty and enjoyable. Well worth another visit.

From the moment you step into the place till the time you leave the experience and service is amazing, the food choices are difficult but everything that was tried thus far was excellent.

Typical Italian style restaurant with expected Italian flavours. Good coffee as well, good Barista indeed. A must visit restaurant. The best Pizza I have ever had in KZN.

Rather large group which sometimes can encounter difficulties but all in all a great evening and good food served timeously and in good standing! The langoustine tail starter was great and tasty - just size was more on prawn or even shrimp tail side than that of a langoustine, bur definitely tasty nonetheless! Good choice for good consistent food, service... More

Loved how accommodating the staff were - we arrived rather late on a Friday evening - and they still let us in. Good pizza (they have gluten free options as well). Nice menu. Good service. Set away from the busier parts of Florida Road.
