Quiet restaurant with a great romantic ambiance. The best ravioli I've ever had! My husband had a pizza with eggplant, and it was just as delicious. Chocolate brownie for dessert....very very yummie. I am so going back!

One of the best Italian restaurants in South Africa. For years Cortina was regarded as the finest, and here it is a different name, but same family. The owner works in the kitchen and as you enter you can smell the fabulous aromas.
