Amazing food. As a frequent customer I can confidently say that I have never had a bad meal at Il Cappero. The best dishes are certainly the Veal Rolls and the Prawn Pasta, and all the desserts are fantastic depending on your desired taste. I highly recommend the wine, and think this place is wonderful regardless of it being a... More

This was the third time we've visited this restaurant and I must say, I was disappointed. The night we chose to go was very quiet so the ambiance was not fantastic. It also wasn't helped by loud and animated discussion taking place in the kitchen that clearly filtered through to the diners. The raw tuna special for starters was excellent... More

I have been here few times and each time I had very good food and lovely athmosphere. The food is very good and fresh. Just a little bit overpriced and the wine list should be a bit bigger

This is a great small Italian restaurant that combines good ambience, good service and great food. They keep it simple, and very good. Well done.

We ate a brilliant Italian here on Saturday 4th April. The service was excellent, and the menu explained perfectly by the manager which really helped us choose. We both ate pasta plus a gorgeous bottle of Shiraz. My boyfriend also loved the tiramisu, which was homemade. Really nice atmosphere in the place as well.

we heard a lot about this place and came by recommendation. The controfiletto steaks were basically not eatable because they were cooked very badly and extremely hard and impossible to chew. We did not expect this, was an unfortunate event. Other things we ordered were also quite disappointing. A very bad choice for a meal out in cape town.

I heard so many good things about this restaurant but unfortunately I though it was very average and I am not sure I would go back... I had the calamari carpaccio as a starter and it was extremely sour because of all the lemon juice they put on, the calamari itself tasted ok. For a main course I ordered the... More

Consistently really good, tasty food. Tucked away off the front. Unpretentious but lovely courtyard for hot evenings. Good service, reasonable prices.

We dined here twice and our only regret is that we didn, t go more. The food here is top class and the italian waiter is brilliant, if you order something and he says good choice then you are in for a real treat.
