We have been trading since 1971 and have been owned and run by the same family since day one, which is what sets us apart from the rest.

This restaurant still have that personal touch that to me is so important, because it makes you want to go back to a place again

-Review from tastebuds101Insta from Hartenbos on TripAdvisor-

Italian cuisine is generally characterized by its simplicity, with many dishes having only two to four main ingredients.[9] Italian cooks rely chiefly on the quality of the ingredients rather than on elaborate preparation

We will be open from 14h00 on the day of the Cape Town Carnival - We are right in the middle of the action,so come and take a seat,relax and watch the festivities from the comfort of our restau

Felt like your typical family-run Italian restaurant! The chairs are comfy and the decor is an interesting mix of scribbled walls, chandeliers and an Italian-themed wall of framed pictures. Not pretentious in its decorum at all. Our waiter was friendly and had an easy way about him, but I suspect most of the staff here won’t stand for any nonsense. They’re not shy to fill your wine glass all the way to the top. We waited quite a while for our food but I suspect that is due to the home-cooking style. The penne arrabbiata and the gnocchi arabbiata were both brilliant. My gnocchi was one of the best gnocchis I’ve tasted.
