Went to La Cucina di Ciro with two other friends and we enjoyed our experience. To book was easy and we did it on the day, we got a nice table in the "main" section and the service was very efficient and helpful. The Chef came over to explain the specials of which we all selected from. The starter spring... More

my wife and i recently had a celebratory lunch at La Cucina di Ciro. Initially we thought we would share a starter and then have a main as we were not significantly hungry. However after reading the menu and hearing the specials there was no way we were going to miss out. Both starters were well balanced, exceptionally full of... More

Been here a few times and food has never disappointed. Last visit made this place even more special. We ended up being the last people in the restaurant , the owner and our waiter (Francesco), encouraged us to stay and even served us a free drink after the bill was paid and everyone else left! Amazing evening made by the... More

Innovative cooking, quality ingredients, impeccable service and a chic ambience......all we can ask for in an evening out, but don't find too often! I am new to Johannesburg, and believe this restaurant has been going for over thirty years. It certainly doesn't show as to us it seemed completely fresh, up to date, and relevant, and there was certainly great... More

Attentive but unpretentious service ,a small and refreshingly different menu with fresh deserts and a good wine list . This is an ideal place for a celebration , a... More

This is one of my favourite restaurants in Johannesburg. The food is always good; Menu changes seasonally and the tiramisu is the best outside northern Italy! Service is attentive. It's not inexpensive but you need to pay for great food!

We had a family meal to celebrate a birthday. The tomato soup was excellent. The duck main was outstanding with the most amazing fruit sauces and vegetables complementing a lender soft duck portion with super crispy skin. Puddings were very well received - Apple and almond tart was well rated as well as the Belgian Chocolate Souffle. It is not... More

Ciro is part of the "Old Guard" of the chefs who were and are still professional. From Wynberg, behind "Dion" where he started "Chardonnay", the young Italian comes a long way. The food is absolutely delicious, just the right portion, properly cooked, elegantly presented. One can judge a restaurant by many details, Ciro get top marks. It is refreshing to... More
