We visited this restaurant to celebrate a family reunion. Recommended by 2 Capetonians. Food was great, service too. We ate with 8 persons, everybody ate something different and nobody was disappointed. Keep on th good work because this place is a gem.

Went as a party of three. Service was pro and friendly. All the pasta dishes were excellent. Grilled calamari were also excellent. Optima wine was well recommended. Would have preferred to be seated downstairs but all in all a lovely evening. Will return.

Family owned Italian resturant in the heart of Cape Town. We visited in a Tuesday night, and good job we booked, because by 8:30 it was full! Great atmosphere, great service, and proper Italian food.

Good genuine Italian food served with a smile. Especially impressed by the tiramisu they brought out for my birthday :-)

Il Leone Mastrantonio clearly feels like a high-end Italian restaurant in an old home, because it was an old home at one time - and that feeling of being in a town villa still remains. The menu and wine lists are very varied; the appetizers...More
