Even the sushi was phenomenal (had to try it as an appetizer). The portion size/value for cost is fantastic. You basically get two meals for one, I have yet to leave this place without a... More

The staff and manager were great with excellent service. Food very tasty and a lot of it. Well presented and freshly cooked. The desserts are deliciously fattening. We loved the atmosphere, very cozy and romantic. The whole setup is lovely, we frequently visit this Italian Restaurant.

What a wonderful little gem on the East Rand. Great food, great wine selection and fabulous old fashioned service. Has a well ventilated smoking section and an amazing one man show on a Sunday, (& Wednesdays, I think) creating a pleasant and relaxing dining experience.

What a wonderful experience. George the owner was on the floor all night. The place was packed but the service was excellent. George arranged a special pasta dish after asking only a couple of questions and it was superb. Great family restaurant.

Eaten here a couple of times. This occasion was with local business contacts. Good service and tasty italian food & wines. Nice atmosphere in the restaurant, even if the area's suroundings are nothing to write home about

Brilliant choice of meals on the menu. Value for money and very good service. We had live music and the musician could play anything and everything. We were a sizable group and had a range of food - From Pizza to Prawns and every dish was a winner. We experienced 'Fusion' cooking at its best
