Has been one of my favourite pizza spots. Yet each recent trip brings more dissatisfaction. Tonight ordered a take-away and went to collect 30 minutes later. The incompetent waitress had not placed the order yet. Bizarrely the manager blamed the busy night for the mishap. However not even half the tables were full- another sign of the slide into mediocrity.... More

We went with some friends for some pizza and pasta, the service was quick, knowledgeable and friendly. The meals were of very good quality, wood fired over for a delicious thin based pizza. Prices rather a bit above average, especially for mot being located in central Cape Town. We went early in the evening and the restaurant was not full... More

It's really hard to say anything about the pizzas we has because of the zero service we received from this establishment. We choose a different restaurant every Thursday for dinner and decided on Morituris this week but will not visit again. We were ignored by the waiter and had to wave at her to get attention. Had to ask for... More

We were super excited when we found this gem around the corner from our apartment. Pizza is great, pasta is fantastic- we definitely want to be regulars. The downside is that we tried to book a table for 11 people and were told of a whole list of rules. Therefore when booking, be ready for some resistance from the manager.

Consistently great pizza. Helpful friendly staff. Delicious selections of topping combos. And super quick to make - collection only. Haven't tried the pastas but no need when the pizza this good.

Had dinner with family there while on holiday. Enjoyed the friendly service and attentiveness. Took a little to get out bill even though we were the last people in the restaurant before closing time. Food was fabulous; had pizzas, lasagne and pasta - all scrumptious and served professionally

I last visited this place in the late 1990s when it appeared to have an association with Col'Cachio. But no longer does this association appear to exist, as I couldn't find the trademark brie and peppadew puzza anywhere on the menu. So I settled for the calamari with chips which was tender and tasty. Washed down with Jack Black lager.... More

The place is pretty far from city center and while food is ok ... it doesn't worth a special drive. Price are average and service was good.
