Critic's review

Nikita Buxton

This spot is one of the stalwarts of the Kloof Street line-up. The place buzzes on any given week night and is great for a quick, fuss-free meal.

Food
Starters include a lot of deep-fried bites, but it isn't necessarily a bad thing. A few morsels seem a touch out of place for an Italian-esque eatery - boerewors bowls, nachos and spring rolls, for example. If you're wanting something a little indulgent, go for the mushrooms Romano with baked field mushrooms - though these seemed to be ordinary supermarket mushrooms - with a feta, garlic and tomato sauce. It's extra cheesy and good for sharing with a side order of garlic pizza bread.

For mains, the vast menu ranges from salad meals and burgers to pastas, pizzas and grills. There's even a burger bowl option for those opting to forgo the carbs. The beef patties are good enough and nicely cooked and the garlic mayo gives a tang. Ribs are also always a hit here, and come messy with a special barbecue basting.

If it's pizza you're after, the ones here - quirkily named after famed artists - are thin and decent, though a few more seceonds in the wood-fired oven could add that extra crispiness. Make up your own wth a range of toppings, or bite into options like the Da Vinci with bacon, avo, mushroom and garlic, or hearty Rembrandt with roasted butternut, spinach, Rouquefort cheese and Peappadews.

For pud, The Lindt chocolate brownies arrive warm and gooey with sweet vanilla ice cream.

Drinks:
A familiar and easy drinks list; you’ll find something to quench your thirst and at a good price.

User reviews

  • The service was good, with our waiter being very friendly and courteous. The options on the menu looked very nice. I enjoyed the fact that with the pizzas, you could order it half-half so you can get two different flavours. The price is just halved for each type of pizza and combined for a single price. When the pizza came, however, it did taste rather bland which I had to combat with seasoning, and little bowls of garlic, parmesan and chillis. This was disappointing, as well as the really skinny base which was left pretty soggy.

  • Da Vincis can be found on the top of Kloof. During the week they run a R50 lunch special which is worth every cent. The veg cannelloni is really superb. The service here also stands out. Overall a really nice spot to catch a bite to eat with friends or family.
