Free garlic bread filled us up a litte, but we still had space for delicious starters and big, tasty main course. Good value for money and attentive staff. Nice garden atmosphere.

In all the time of eating pizza, I have never had a pizza served without a tomato base, without salt and pepper and without herbs. Truly....this was the worst experience ever and the worst meal. And...some of the items for the topping were missing, but you still have to pay full price.O yes...and customer service....a fat 0. We complained to... More

We stopped for lunch around 2pm one afternoon and there was only one other table occupied in the restaurant. The covered open air dining area is quite pleasent and a breeze managed to find its way through the restaurant helping to keep it somewhat cool. The waiter was on Africa time so it took quite a while to be acknowledged... More

Not really an Italian Restaurant. Open and fresh dining area. The pizza are acceptable but not great. Most of the ingredients on the menu was not available. Very limited drinks.

Some comfort food at the end of our safari--all entries were very good, but the pizza was exceptional.

We had been traveling in Tanzania for 2 weeks and needed something different than Indian food. We had the pizza. It wasn't the best pizza I've had...but tasted amazing because it was something different. Service was great. They called us a cab to get us home safely for us. Good prices and cute atmosphere.

This place has a mixture of Italian and Indian food (!). We had three pizzas betwen us and each one was fairly ordinary. Service was fine except for the fact that they would not take any cards but would take USD at a very good rate for them.

Thank bubu3
