Living on the Bryanston/Fourways side of town I've struggled to find an authentic Italian restaurant with consistent quality and great service. Cafe Del Sol delivers that and so much more and is definitely the best Italian restaurant I've eaten at in South Africa. Food Food is made freshly everyday with limits on some dishes (ravioli, gnocchi etc) having tasted various... More

On being seated at 14:15, I was informed that the kitchen closed at 15:00. Did they or didn't they want my custom? Fortunately I stayed! I had the homemade gnocchi with Gorgonzola and walnut sauce, a deliciously smooth and rich dish. Definitely to be recommended! After an unpromising start, the service proved to be friendly, attentive and efficient. I shall... More

Celebrated my 30th birthday here with a couple of friends. Food was Classic Italian and absolutely delicious. Yummy crispy calamari and prawn avo ritz starters and mains of fresh gnocchi with Gorgonzola and walnut sauce which was a bit too strong for me but luckily hubby was happy to swop it with me for his totally umami chicken porcini risotto....

Every time we eat here it is outstanding. The food, the service, the atmosphere, just fantastic! The only thing I wish is that it was easier to get a booking as you need to book weeks in advance.

My first review was really just to say that no-one answered the phone! But I believe their system is that you must email them and they will come back to you. Not ideal, but if that's the way they do things, then who I am... We visited this restaurant for the first time on Mother's Day this year. We had... More

At first glance, you have to wonder why this restaurant is located where it is - the surrounds certainly aren't glamorous. But step inside and you get transported to another world! Great food, fabulous pasta and I can definitely recommend the ravioli. The staff are friendly and efficient and the ambience is awesome for an evening with friends. I will... More

Hidden gem. Amazed I have lived here so long and missed this one. One of the best in Joburg! Sublime homemade pastas. Wonderful service. Will be back here soon

This is, in my opinion, probably the best restaurant in Johannesburg. The food is unbelievably good and the service is better than almost any other restaurant I have eaten at. The wine list is also very impressive, with many un-common estates featured, which is so refreshing compared to the same old same old..... Not the cheapest in town, but always... More
