Cosy place in upper Kloof street. Very typical Italian and very obviously soccer mad. Been there twice now. Hubby is allergic to gluten and his gluten free pizza was as nice as mine.

The food was average and the service was friendly. The music was rather loud. But overall a nice vibe.

Great food and service. Love their original burger designs. In summer there is nothing better than grabbing a cold beer and sitting in their outside section

We had a great meal here - Italian family food that was exactly what you would expect. The pizza was good, as was the vegetarian cannelloni.

Was recommended by our hotel (Four Rosmead) when we arrived after a long flight and just needed a bite to eat - loved it so much we went back for lunch the next day! Ambience, staff and pizzas were all excellent, and the welcome was just what we needed. Set the tone for our whole fantastic SA experience!

if you're looking for good, simple, well cooked Italian fare, this is your spot. located in the trendy Kloof st area, at the top,Bacini's continues to tick all the boxes for a great Italian night out!! Well priced, with an adequate wine list. They do not have a housewine/carafe offering, unfortunately.
