In 2009 Alda and Pierra, two cousins, together with their childhood friend, Tony, decided to open an Italian Restaurant in Parkview, and have not look back since. Alda does her thing in the kitchen while Tony takes care of the mouthwatering home-made pastas and pastries. Piera is ever present in the dining room ensuring every customer leaves satisfied.
This snug café style restaurant can seat upto 40 patrons inside with 30 seats in the well protected back garden. The warm interior walls are covered with artwork, while the white on black tablecloths offers an interesting contrast.
The small menu offers a variety of authentic Italian fare with Specials added every night. Over weekends a fish menu is available while fresh pastas, cakes and pastries are home-made every day. Alda and Tony creates delicious dishes like their specialty the Millefoglie di Granchio – Crab, Potato and Mayonaise Millefeuille. The Straccetti di filetto al misto di bosco - Shredded fillet with mixed wild mushroom is just as mouthwatering. Desserts change often and are always fresh.
