"New kid on the block" with the best wood-fired thin base pizzas and fresh pasta dishes.
Walked in and the dining room was 1/4 full. We placed an order for 4 pizzas. A basic order for an Italian restaurant. Tables arriving after us received their food before us. We complained about the 60 minute wait time for our food. When leaving the manager/owner walked us out, taunting and laughing at us for our complaint about wait time. The truly worst experience in a restaurant when you complain about a 60 minute wait time for basic pizza and you are taunted and laughed at on your way out.
Strongly adise others to avoid this place until this guy decides to offer genuinely good service and not taunt his customers.
My friends and I had a disappointing Friday evening at Alforno. Six of us went for dinner and only five of us placed a food order, which the waiter took without writing down, but then forgot to put through the easiest order of the lot (magarita pizza) and one person was left waiting while we all started eating. We were one of only three tables that evening so it wasn't really excusable.
My vegetarian pizza was very disappointing - the tomato sauce lacked flavour, there were very few mushrooms, and the olives tasted like the ones from a tin? Also, I had requested my pizza to be without green peppers and the waited responded with "would I like extra cheese?", to which I said no thank you they could just up the other toppings to make up for the missing green pepper. When it came it was laden with tomatoes for which they'd added a R14 charge on the bill, even though I hadn't ordered them.
I tasted the other girls' food and nothing was really spectacular so I wont be going back; there are far better Italian restaurants around.
One of the best Italian, pizza restaurant in Cape Town. The owner himself is the main chef and makes sure everything you order, is fresh, hot and satisfying. Very hands on. We love coming there on Friday night when the live bands plays. The pizzas are out of this world!!! The best in town. Service and food 5/5
