The relaxed informal atmosphere has ensured the on-going popularity of Mario's. Owner Pina Marzagalli has continued to work hard and provide only the best service to her loyal customers. Her love of cooking is evident and she makes her own pasta including the ravioli and gnocchi, and she continues to import the Parma Ham and Salami to ensure the quality of these important ingredients. 

The menu offers traditional Italian fare and there are regular specials such as Pina's delicious bean soup which is popular in the winter months, as well as more unusual offerings such as crumbed calf brains with capers, or marrow bones served with toast. Veal Saltimbocca with Parma ham, sage, brandy and white wine is a popular choice from the veal dishes, and for starters the Parmigiana de Melanzane - sliced fried brinjals with mozzarella and cooked tomato is highly recommended. Pina's signature dish however, is the stuffed baby chicken which is served with roast potatoes, vegetables and Pina’s homemade fruit mustard. It not only looks impressive on the plate, but tastes superb with a delicately flavoured stuffing mixture to enhance the flavour of the chicken.

Visit this Cape Town favourite for a relaxed evening with family and friends.
