There pizzas are good. Crispy authentic base with good quality toppings. The serves were gr8. Only the Cappuccinos were a real let down. Filter coffee in a tall latte glas with hot milk and some dry foam ontop. Pls dont call it a Cappuccino

One could forgive the somewhat grotty look inside, if the food were more inspired. While the waitress was pleasant and eager to please, her kitchen let her down horribly. It took ages for a very simple calamari starter to arrive - after much banging about from the kitchen. The cooking oil had not reached the right temperature - the chips... More

There is little choice in the small town of Port Nolloth so we decided on Vespetti. the interior is a little strange and feels like a mix between a takeaway and and an oddly furnished diner. The prawns were quite tasty but rather expensive. Not licenced so bring your own and they just charge a small corkage fee.

After the Richtersveld we thought that a nice cold beer will be the thing - they are not licenced! Got my own wine and had to get up twice to ask for glasses. The food were deep-deep - very deep fried and could easily cause a heart attack straight away. The hosts are very nice though and a touch of... More

We went there twice during our visit to Nollie this year. We were pleasantly surpriced on both our visits. Their fish was perfect and their pizzas was some of our best ever. The decor of the place is also very memorable. The owner have a real love for italian Vespas. This is someting we could relate to as well. Vespetti... More

Wonderful little restaurant with a big menu. The offer enormous sea food platters, ribs, steaks, pasta and pizza etc. After two weeks of camping and red meat almost every night we all had their excellent fish (hake) and chips. We envied the enormous pizzas and huge sea food dishes at the neighbouring tables. Vespetti's has a great ambience with a... More

Treat yourself to delicious seafood (I recommend the stuffed calamari tube, also a signature dish! Yummy!!!), while you watch the sunset over the Port Nolloth beach front. The service is excellent and the staff are very friendly. You can't visit Port Nolloth without stopping here for a meal - it's part of the experience :) Note - no alcohol, but... More

This restaurant is in a prime position on the beach front. It is not licensed, so you need to bring your own alcohol. It was great for us, because we had brought a special bottle Springfield "Miss Lucy" with us for this occasion. Both of us ordered the seafood, which was great. Service was also very good
