With my sister-in-law on her first visit from the UK we decided to take her to our favourite little gem for some authentic Italian fare. I'm usually torn between the melenzane & the calamari but decided to try the Capelli D'Angelo. It was a very generous portion with good sized prawns & plenty of calamari with a lemon & chilli...

Always visit at least once a year with the family and food has always been great. This trip - Pizzas were to heavy both base and vegetarian toppings. The crisp freshness is missing. Too much cheese. Felt no different to franchise pizzas. Service not great. They can do better.

A relaxed place where the food and atmosphere is always great. Avril's is a dish I almost always have to have.

We all had heart burn through the night. Not enthusiastic to go back at all. However the venue is small and cosy and... More

Incredible pizza. Was a great vibe as well, you can feel the ocean air and it's a very "euro" feel which I love. Good food and servers, I also like that it's not too loud where we were seated so we could hear all 14 people at the table. Great experience.

Totally overrated restaurant. If I would be generous 6 of 10 would be the maximum just because if you're used to international pricing SouthAfrica is cheap. Mamas Bolognese Sauce average. Service average. Ambience average. Fillet Steak average... Greek Salad couldn't save it. Long wait in between courses. Very limited choice of wine by the glass. Will most likely not return.
