It’s an unexpected experience when you first drive into the parking area, and enter the restaurant. The restaurant decor is boujee chic, with contemporary art adorning the walls.
The setting is rustic, but by no means rural. The restaurant is flanked by beautiful country views and wild African gardens. Tables are scattered inside while undercover areas and the flat lawn areas make it easy for any person to move around.
The staff are top-notch, friendly and attentive. The menu is limited for now, so there was no need to explain much. Your choices are a variety of pizzas with either a tomato base or a plain base.
We ordered the Pollo (𝘮𝘰𝘻𝘻𝘢𝘳𝘦𝘭𝘭𝘢, 𝘤𝘩𝘪𝘤𝘬𝘦𝘯, 𝘤𝘳𝘪𝘴𝘱𝘺 𝘰𝘯𝘪𝘰𝘯𝘴, 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘤𝘳è𝘮𝘦 𝘧𝘳𝘢𝘪𝘤𝘩𝘦 – R130) and the 𝐁𝐂𝐆 ( 𝘮𝘰𝘻𝘻𝘢𝘳𝘦𝘭𝘭𝘢, 𝘣𝘢𝘤𝘰𝘯, 𝘤𝘢𝘳𝘢𝘮𝘦𝘭𝘪𝘻𝘦𝘥 𝘰𝘯𝘪𝘰𝘯𝘴 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘨𝘰𝘳𝘨𝘰𝘯𝘻𝘰𝘭𝘢 – R130)
The bases are on par with the type of pizzas one would experience throughout Italy and added to the authenticity of the experience. The pizza toppings were generous and packed with flavor. We were definitely not disappointed with our choices.
The drinks menu includes an assortment of milkshakes (𝘏𝘰𝘳𝘭𝘪𝘤𝘬𝘴 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘏𝘰𝘯𝘦𝘺, 𝘉𝘢𝘳 𝘖𝘯𝘦, 𝘚𝘢𝘭𝘵𝘦𝘥 𝘊𝘢𝘳𝘢𝘮𝘦𝘭 𝘦𝘵𝘤) and aromatic coffee.
𝐒𝐩𝐨𝐨𝐧 does not have a liquor license but you are allowed to bring your own booze, and pay no corkage. Prices are similar to most pizzerias in the area, (R55-R150) but it’s the setting that sets it apart from its competitors.
