It's Italian, so order Italian. Some in our party ordered steaks. Not the best choice. The pasta was great, but this is not a steak house. Also, bring your own wine. Corkage fee is R50 and it works out to a much better price than buying from the wine list. Parking is tough.

I have visited over the years for lunch and dinner as well as an art exhibition. I have always enjoyed the vibe and menu. The last time I found this has become a true family restaurant and the playground doesn't support the amount of children accompanying their parents. The menu hasn't changed in a few years but I still looked... More

We booked for my dad's birthday lunch and though the food was fine, a three pane solid wood glass door fell out of its frame when somebody tried to open it!!! My mom was hit on the head with the solid wood top of the door. The door was obviously not maintained but even worse is the manager's handling of... More

This is our favorite family restaurant in Centurion. The food is very reasonable and tasty. The pizzas and pasta is always a winner and the service excellence. There is a small kids play area outside that keeps them entertained and it makes for perfect lunches!
