We were advised to book this place so called in in the day. Don't be put off by café-like appearance in daytime. At night it's transformed. Great pizzas and don't miss the deep-fried artichokes. Good service and great wines. Closes strangely early, however (about 9.30).

We stayed near Massimos in Hout Bay and did take away 3 times. It was very quick and the dishes were great.

A relaxed Italian family run Pizzeria with a large selection of pizza (even gluten free and low carb!). Service is always friendly. There is an outside play area for children and plenty of parking.

A little gem. Very friendly and welcoming staff. A HUGE vegan menu (great for me as I’m doing ‘Veganuary’). Delicious small plates and pasta at very reasonable prices. Definitely a place to visit again! Would highly recommend!
