Bacini's is really vibey place with a great mix of customers. Even though I was told the pizza was great, I decided to go for pasta. Maybe I'm spoiled, maybe it wasn't what I expected but I don't think I'll have pasta again there. Having said that, I'll certainly give it another try with the pizza as there's nothing better...

We stayed several days in the area and went there a few times. We can only recommand this place, each time we have been attended by a different waiter and all of them have been really nice: smily, welcoming, not pushing you to consume (which is not the case in many places!), so always really convenient. Each time we took... More

Went for Sunday lunch with a friend. Restaurant wasnt busy at 1pm so very relaxed atmosphere. Had the Tuscan style chicken dish which was delicious. Sat outside in the smokers section. Inside looks like a typical Kloofstr restaurant with wooden floors and open plan layout. At night i guess there might be a good atmosphere with all the tables situated... More

Feel sorry to have to write this as i used to like this place and decided to revisit after a long period of not going. There was a lovely lady who seated is but then that was about as good as it got. The service was taken over by a young guy who 1 minute after the menus were placed,... More

Cosy place in upper Kloof street. Very typical Italian and very obviously soccer mad. Been there twice now. Hubby is allergic to gluten and his gluten free pizza was as nice as mine. Second visit I had a pasta which was delicious but such big helping that I was able to take about 1/3 home for lunch the next day.... More

The food was average and the service was friendly. The music was rather loud. But overall a nice vibe.

Great food and service. Love their original burger designs. In summer there is nothing better than grabbing a cold beer and sitting in their outside section
