Second time visiting. Excellent service. I can recommend ordering a mezze platter for your guests and allow them to order their main course. The seafood pasta was very enjoyable and authentic. Nice vibe catering for a chilled but upmarket business dining experience to impress the most seasoned of guests For something more relaxed try Mundo's or the fish market on... More

My husband and I went to Bel Piatto for dinner and had a completely adequate dinner. I had the seafood fettuccine and he had the pesto gnocchi. We were intrigued by a well reviewed Italian restaurant in Mozambique. What we received was an adequate representation of Italian food. It wasn't great. It wasn't bad. The food is clearly made freshly... More

Good Italian food and nice ambience. Both meat and sea food dishes are tasty. Can be rather busy at times.

A good option for vegetarians with about 8 or so meals available across the starters and pasta mains. Clearly identifiable. Prices are about average. Tables are beautifully set. Nice ambience. Bottle of still water provided on the table... Waiters are quick to attend to any needs. Need to book in busy periods.

I am not mad about going out for Italian food but this was a meal for work. Our meals were very tasty - better than many overseas Italians. Excellent service too. Overall a good visit.

The pumpkin fish soup starter was great! Not too heavy but also not watery - a great balance. I had the spicy penne with bacon (it was a perfect al dente) and my boyfriend had the ossobuco (so tender and flavorful). We rounded our meal off sharing a crepe suzette. Every menu mentioned here was great and totally recommended!
