Not a total success for us. Great surroundings, great deli, clearly visible and effective manager. Has all the atmosphere you'd expect in a good Italian restaurant. The good things - the glass of prosecco offered on arrival, the aubergine melanzane that I ordered and hugely enjoyed, the bottle of Vergelegen red blend, the ice cream. Not so good - the... More

I've never been to such an authentic Italian restaurant. Food is of top quality and always tastes home made. You can tell it's made with love and passion the way only Italians can! Prices are reasonable and the location is perfect. Well worth a visit. Lovely deli available in the day to buy cheeses, pasta sauces, olives and other Italian... More

I only recently had my first visit to this delectable little eatery and WOW- I will become a regular. Everything is great- from the moment they welcome you with a free glass of Prosecco until you have eaten the last bite of your post dinner cheese platter. Their buffalo mozzarella is the best we have had in SA and the... More

Tortellino D 'Oro is my special lunchtime heaven. Yes they are also open for dinner but I especially love a long lazy lunch there. The atmosphere is light and freshly upmarket and the crowd are tastefully obscure. The food is terrific and the staff are friendly and efficient ( a rarity lately ). Yes, Tortellino is expensive but rightly so.... More

Our go to place to eat for more than 10 years now. The owners always welcoming and the food consistent. The service good and the daughter runs a tight ship. It takes a lot of savvy to turn around a lot of tables EVERY day of the week for long hours and stay this consistent. She is the backbone of... More

I went three times in different periods but the food since I'm Italian does not reflect the true Italian cuisine. I ordered a salmon carpaccio whose slices were transparent and fee. Let's say there were more lemon slices... A friend ordered pasta and fagioli and the quality was very bad. I dare say canned. Artichokes breaded were horrendous. The daughter... More

This restaurant never disappoints me. All the dishes are presented in true Italian style . There is no doubt that the Italian family influence runs deep, and the quality of the meals commensurate of what one would come to expect in Northern Italy. We have visited many times and will continue to do so again. The Italian mother in the... More

I'm no expert but this place seemed really authentic. They have a deli, bakery and gelateria on the side and the place is really bustling. Service was good and prompt, and the food was all round good - we had three courses. There were 3 of us and we each enjoyed our dishes. Dessert was especially good with the gelato... More

We have been many times and it is always very good. We love the bruschetta and the pastas are delicious. Much quieter than most other Italian places in Joburg so its easy to chat around the table. Well worth a visit!
