I don’t know about you, but when the temperature drops here in Cape Town, the pizza cravings strike. If you can relate, you’ll be delighted to know that last week on a cold, rainy evening, I came across the most divine little Italian spot in the heart of Hout Bay – it’s Posticino!

After hearing lots of great things about this homey little restaurant, I was very much excited to finally try it out for myself with a small group of friends. We arrived and were instantly made to feel at home by the lovely staff. We took a seat at one of the tables near the back of the restaurant, which was warm and cosy.

To get the evening going, our table ordered up a round of whiskeys. Then, to eat, we all went for something different. For me, it was a pretty tough choice between a pizza and a pasta, but I eventually decided on the Al Greco pizza, which is topped with spinach, olives and feta.

Our food reached our table super-quickly, which was great considering we were all pretty starving, and everything was fabulous! I loved the thin crust of my pizza, not to mention the generous load of cheese. I was even lucky enough to have a taste of what one of my girlfriends was having; the linguine pasta in a basil pesto sauce. I’m not big on vegetarian pastas, but I’ve got to say – that pasta was delicious!

For dessert, we then each had a bowl of ice cream. I went for one scoop of vanilla and one scoop of strawberry. The ice cream was ever so moreish – the perfect sweet ending to a very satisfying meal! If you’re looking for somewhere cute and cosy to tuck into top-notch Italian food, I recommend you try this place out, Darlings!
