I had their macaroni cheese with a difference. .. it was nice and creamy, the difference was it had bacon bits. My husband had lasagna, he enjoyed his too. It was convenient to eat from here as our hotel was right next door Our waiter Bo, was very polite and helpful. I'll be back for more food

First time visit last night, very good waiter (Kenneth). It was very busy and quite noisy due to the groups of ladies that were there but we enjoyed our meal tremendously and could not finish it all as the plates were piled high with yummy food. My son (a burger fanatic) could not finish his burger as it was so... More

This is one of our favourite local restaurants in the Boksburg area. The atmosphere is cosy and intimate. The food (pastas and steaks) are remarkable and the service matches. The waiters can, on occasion, take a bit longer than usual to service your table during service. But understandably, when this place is busy, food and wine is being enjoyed at... More

Located in a small cluster of restaurants close to the main highway,but not on a major road so more of a challenge to find if you are not a local. This place was actually recommended to us by the waiters at a bar/cafe a few doors away, and it was a great choice.

Initially service was ok. Once food was served the chicken was raw on the bone which we flagged to our waiter. 10 minutes later we asked if he had flagged this to the manager, 10 mins again and we asked for the bill. It was only at this point that the manager advised us that the chickens were larger than... More

I have since visited Il Gusto again and my impression has taken a major downhill spiral. My friend especially wanted to go there for her 70th as she wanted to have Crepes Suzette - which I checked on the internet that they still had it on the menu. However, it is no longer on their menu and despite being told... More
