Simple but excellent proper Wood fired Pizza. Strong coffee. Nice and laid back, and your small dog is welcome. We are never disappointed with the food or service. Well worn decor, but well executed food. A Melville must visit.

Cafe Picobella is a popular spot with attractive decor. The menu is very large so I had a hard time choosing what to eat. In the end, I choose a squash and sage lasagna type of dish with lots of cheese. It was very good...More

My wife and I both ordered the Ossa Buco Milane at a hefty R180 pp. The dish was served with a basic polenta and bland tomato sauce. Overall the dish did not live up to expectations. The kids had the Chicken Pollo Arosto and Lasagne...More
