Four of us dined a week or so before Christmas, and as you would expect the restaurant was full. The service was good, with the owner circulating to ensure the food was of the standard he expected. All four of us had different dishes, but...More

On first impression the restaurant has a very warm and romantic ambiance. The aroma of the wood burning oven, the flavours of the food and the authentic Italian décor are exactly what makes this place stand out. This is not a child friendly establishment, it...More

Quiet restaurant with a great romantic ambiance. The best ravioli I've ever had! My husband had a pizza with eggplant, and it was just as delicious. Chocolate brownie for dessert....very very yummie. I am so going back!

How sad a high end Italian restaurant like this only offers 'Unbelievable ' wine by the glass which is unbelievably bad and unbelievably only R29.00 a bottle in Ultra Liquors.

One of the best Italian restaurants in South Africa. For years Cortina was regarded as the finest, and here it is a different name, but same family. The owner works in the kitchen and as you enter you can smell the fabulous aromas.
