Gianni the owner is always on hand to meet and greet...he is a convivial and smiley man with great patter and an eye for a pretty face... The food is very good, well-cooked and presented. I just love the carpaccio of beef and the calamari with garlic presented sizzling on the plate. A glass of chilled limoncello is a must... More

Our visit to Mitico was extremely disappointing, mainly because of the poor quality of service we received. The waiter took my husband's drink order and left without asking what I would like to order. After a long delay, he returned with my husband's drink and then took my order. No apology was given for this lack of attention. My husband's... More

It's a very good restaurant on Kloof Sreet, who's perfect for a diner before/ after a drink at Yours Truly! The owner is a very kind italian guy, who knows how to make a warmer atmosphere (it change than Afrikaans and Dutch way of life...) Latin are the best ;)

My partner and I hosted our engagement party at Mitico. The managers were great, the waiters exceptional and food was superb. The company was good too :) We were presented initially with shared platters of an assorted antipasti and bread, followed by a choice of what was available on the a la carte menu. The food was authentic and flavoursome,... More

My friend and I went on a Saturday evening. We ordered two pizzas which were tasty. However the waiter Henok Matusa was awful. Upon ordering we wished to add/remove certain toppings however Henok was very impatient and ended up forgetting the order. When we received our meal along with Parmesan, chilli etc I had to ask twice for spoons. No... More

Wasn't quite sure what to expect from this place. A bog standard Italian restaurant that pretty well does what it says on the tin. Immediately on arrival I was greeted and made to feel welcome despite the fact I was travelling alone. I ordered pizza and red wine both of which were of out standing quality. Would definitely recommend this... More

I normally go there for the lasagne, which has been very good in the past. But I also felt like a change and asked the waitress to tell me whether I should have a spaghetti dish or the lasagne. She said the lasagne without a doubt. What arrived in front of me was not what I had enjoyed in the... More

The waiters are extremely unpleasant. Rushed us from start to finish. Hospitality sorely lacking. Never felt so uncomfortable in an Italian restaurant since I was in Italy. Not impressed!!!
