We booked in advance and arrived to be given a table next to the wall despite the whole balcony area being free - blinds down anyway so no view of the beautiful mountain on by chance a balmy autumn evening. Ordered chorizo fettuccine (my husband salmon penne) preceded by a garlic pizza and salad (thankfully given what transpired!). The lady server didn’t write down our order but recited it back to us correctly, I joked ‘you have a great memory’ she laughed, my husband jested ‘well let’s see what arrives first’ and on we go ….. Eventually the food arrived ‘madam we made the wrong order so will you have the penne?’ Not wishing to ruin the vibe of our evening - we are on holiday and our last couple of nights in Newlands I said OK. I actually don’t like penne which is why I ordered fettuccine to begin with - and actually decided to ask for what I ordered - by the time my order arrived - fettuccine and ‘chorizo’ my husband had finished his meal and we had finished leisurely drinking a bottle of wine. To add insult to injury the ‘chorizo’ is clearly no such thing but is rather a sliced up hot dog sausage - tough outer skin and all - looks like hot dog, smells like hot dog- it’s hotdog!! I won’t even bother with the red water that is supposedly tomato sauce - honestly a disgrace. I returned the meal, was comped a garlic pizza and the uneaten, twice attempted disgrace of an offering was removed from the bill which the server seemed to think was doing me a favor. Fortunately there was a gentleman on the street I was able to give the garlic bread/pizza to. Quite honestly this is the worst meal, service, experience I have experienced in 20 years of visiting RSA - for 3-6 months a year. How this eatery is still in business I know not! We have often walked past the Steenberg branch oh how I wish I had applied that instinct in Newlands. I can only apologize to the servers who stoically avoided us for only the second time in my life I did not leave a tip! Shame on you! Avoid at all cost - go to Primi or Old Italian - honestly THE WORST meal in CPT in 20 yearsMore
Brilliant: The Food, service & experience was excellent. There was a lovely ‘buzz’ to the restaurant for a Monday night. Well done’More
Enjoyed a business dinner at Basilico - reasonably priced, good quality pasta dishes at reasonable prices. Professional staff seemed knowledgeable about the menu, and able to handle a busy night without any stress. Recommended.More
We get pizza or ravioli take-always on a near-weekly basis. Always excellent, service at least as good. Well priced as well. We were in regularly pre-lockdown, and look forward to going again once we’ve had our 2nd vaccination. This is an old school local Italian which I highly recommend.More
Perfect for date night. Great salads and pizzas. Food is freshly prepared and service is attentive. Will definitely be back for more.More
