The food was average and the service was friendly. The music was rather loud. But overall a nice vibe.

Great food and service. Love their original burger designs. In summer there is nothing better than grabbing a cold beer and sitting in their outside section

We had a great meal here - Italian family food that was exactly what you would expect. The pizza was good, as was the vegetarian cannelloni.

Was recommended by our hotel (Four Rosmead) when we arrived after a long flight and just needed a bite to eat - loved it so much we went back for lunch the next day! Ambience, staff and pizzas were all excellent, and the welcome was just what we needed. Set the tone for our whole fantastic SA experience!

I have eaten here many time now and it's always good authentic Italian pizza or pasta. Good service and cool vibe.

if you're looking for good, simple, well cooked Italian fare, this is your spot. located in the trendy Kloof st area, at the top,Bacini's continues to tick all the boxes for a great Italian night out!! Well priced, with an adequate wine list. They do not have a housewine/carafe offering, unfortunately.

5 friends went out to dinner. the service took forever. the salads were ok but the 5 main meals were ice cold. the manager was definitely not very attentive and only while the entire bill was being paid did he offer a drink in compensation. no one took up his offer. really and truly one of the worst meals. We... More

My sister inviting the family to Bacini's for dinner to celebrate her birthday. There were 12 of us, one being my 4 year old daughter. When we arrived we were handed blankies which I thought was a nice touch, there were plenty of heaters around too so it was very cozy. The evening started well but went downhill from there.... More

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”.
