Critic's review

Zola Nene

Food
This classic Italian restaurant offers authentic, no-frills Italian classics. A variety of pasta sauces are served with your choice of pasta. The signature dish is the Italian meatballs – four plump, tender beef meatballs smothered in a rich tomato sauce. It’s an incredibly comforting dish. If available, try the vongole sauce, made from clams and traditionally served with spaghetti.

Chicken main courses are all offered with the option of substituting for veal. The melenzane and the pizza are cooked in an authentic wood-fired pizza oven, giving the dough a perfectly crisp, burnished base. For a pizza with a difference, try the strega pizza topped with chicken livers cooked in a wine sauce. Portion sizes are substantial, so easily shareable amongst a table friends.

They have a small selection of Italian dessert favourites such as tiramisu and cassata, with a South African peppermint crisp tart thrown in for good measure.

Drinks
The wine list is presented casually on a chalkboard and consists of a small selection of local wines. Also available is a large selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. They also serve imported Italian bottled water.

Service
Service is relaxed and casual and the food is prepared in a timely manner – perfect for a quick lunchtime stop.

Ambience
The walls are painted in large murals of angels and prophets, giving the space a bright colourfulness. On a warm summer’s day, sitting outside on the patio is perfect for soaking up the warm sun. In winter, the wood oven keeps the restaurant warm and cosy.

And…
Posticino has gone mobile, with a wood-fired pizza oven available for hire at events.
