My partner and I have longed loved this restaurant and its sister in Melville and have never been disappointed. We’ve often said that it pays the same attention to ingredients and preparation that a small family-owned Italian establishment does.

We skipped the seafood pizza to challenge our order history and started with a really small-portioned but tasty calamari skewer. We couldn’t resist the classic carbonara with thick-cuts of bacon and chose a saucy seafood pasta. We also relished a cheeky and tender sirloin on the bone with a rustic garlic, rosemary, salt and black pepper served with chips. Everything was uncomplicated but scrumptious.

The pizza is thankfully wood-fired (I don’t understand dining options with an electric one) and has the most options on the menu. Besides the highly-recommended seafood pizza, try specialities like the frango tandoori with marinated chicken and yoghurt or pizza verde with marinated zucchini ribbons or even the sharp shooter with fior de latte, anchovy, olives and onion. Keep things measured with a host of gourmet salads or enjoy a comforting onion soup served with cheese bruschetta. Or keep the gluttony going with a melanzane parmigiana or oxtail ragu with tagliatelle. It’s all handmade and most of the portion sizes are generous.

The dessert menu offers an enticing mix of decadent treats like an alcohol-free tiramisu if you’ve already overindulged on the savoury options washed down with too much vino. Plus there’s a crème brulee with a twist – it’s made with mixed berries, a chocolate fondant that oozes with white chocolate temptation and affogato (coffee, ice cream and toasted almonds) and peaches and cream.

Drinks

From frothy shakes to a varied enough selection of teas, coffees, sodas and a typically South African choice of wines and sparkling versions the choices won’t leave you feeling overwhelmed.

Service

You won’t wait at all to be seated or served and dishes arrive with a smile and care. There’s no pretension and the waitrons look after you well.

Ambience

There are no frills here, just really good down-to-earth décor. With blankets to stave off the cold on chillier evenings and a cosy seating plan with warm lighting from faux candles that attracts a lot of couples – young and old – who want good value for money and simple but delicious dining.

And...

It’s great to know where your ingredients come from, from their non-gmo stoneground flour and hormone-free pork from a family-run farm in the Midlands and you can order a half and half pizza which comes in handy if you don’t eat or want to add a topping that your partner isn’t keen for.

    I have always had great pizza here. They do their base just right - not too thick and chewy, not too thin and crispy. I only wish they would bring back my favourite pizza (Piza V)!

    This has to be one of my favourite restaurants in Rosebank. It has a great atmosphere being in the centre of all the restaurants in the area and the service is always great. They have great wines and pizzas are so good!

    Great food, pity about the service. It took them hours to get our orders out, and when we wanted to order drinks or enquire about our order nobody paid attention. The manager was rude and unapologetic.
