We went there for a Sunday lunch, and I ordered a pizza Siciliana which was excellent. Had a slice of Focaccia as a starter that was also very nice. Live music that was enjoyable.

We enjoyed their pizza last time, so we decided to try it again. We went there early just before 6 p.m. The place was deserted, but it took over half an hour to get our food. We had ordered fish carpaccio, which we understood as...More

Absolutely the best pizza in the Lowveld. We have been going here for years and love the new takeaway location.

Italian place but a bit in your face with the pics of stereotypical Italian memorabilia and pigeon English on the menu, which didn't appeal to conservative me. Get past that , the food was really good and staff very attentive. It's not always easy getting...More

The food and service was fantastic. Perfect for a quick bite to eat as well as a leisurely dinner. Great family environment and the homemade nature of the meals makes this well worth it. Would go back in a heartbeat.

This restaurant serves the best pizzas in Nelspruit. Other dishes are average to below average and especially if it is not standard Italian fare. Service is always slow and one often has difficulty communicating with the serving staff. They are simply not trained sufficiently. This...More

The best in Nelspruit for real authentic Italian food! Pizza's are delicious and even their steaks are delicious! Unfortunately their service is not great and it is most probably due to the fact that their is no supervision. Overall, still worth while to try them...More
