This restaurant came highly recommended so on my recent visit to Cape Town I decided to take one of my closest friends for many years to enjoy a special lunch there. As a true Italophile, and visiting Italy at least five times per year, I'm always keen to find that traditional Italian eatery serving authentic Italian fare. And this is... More

We came across this restaurant based on a "nearest to you" restaurant request via "Here Maps". Despite being in a little local shopping centre and having no obvious kerbside charm it was the most amazing find and is a popular, highly rated, local place which is consistently busy and requires prior booking. In our case we were lucky to arrive... More

When you are looking for the best curry, go to London. When you are looking for the best Italian food especially a pizza - come to Magica Roma. The service is professional, food constantly good and you will know why the restaurant has had many awards from the Italian Government!

The food here is consistently good, as is the service. Enjoyed the Panzerotti Veal so much. Could have eaten a bit more of it! Although it was a Tuesday evening, the restaurant was full. I think this speaks volumes.

We have enjoyed our experiencies here for more than 25 years. Both for dinner and luncheon. Yesterday a group of 7 of us went to lunch & where thoroughly happy with the food, service, ambiance. Menu very wide leaning obviously toword the Italian. Some interesting wines on offer at reasonable prices. Three of the party opted for the Cob in... More

This quaint, traditional, family owned Italian Restaurant is definitely worth trying, but booking is essential. Efficient service and the yummiest pizzas and delicious homemade pastas, in fact everything on the menu is awesome.

We were joined by Australian friends and were hoping to show them one of the better eateries in our city. We had been going there for the past ten years or so and had never been disappointed. This time was not meant to be a great experience. Our starter platter which offered a variety of typical Italian antipasti and starters... More

We loved the pizza! I think is probably the best pizza I had in Cape Town. They are also very friendly and accomodating.

Great friendly fast service, lovely old fashioned ambiance with white linen napkins and table cloths all spotless, tasty food all round was experienced, good wine list, busy but not hectic , made so by the separate dining areas. Our waitress was knowledgeable, nothing was too much trouble and she also had a great sense of humor. The food came quickly... More
