Salmon Pasta a dream of cream

I ordered Salmon pasta dish and got a dreamy creamy plate of yum. The waiter service is fantastic and Music at the correct volume. Family owned perhaps makes the difference.

I have eaten here regularly over the years and have always had outstanding food and service to match. It is definitely my most favourite Italian restaurant in South Africa.

Outstanding Italian cuisine every time and overseen by the mama herself. We have also enjoyed an excellent meal at the new "Botanica" branch in Bryanston.

Scrumptious food. Gnocchi with gorgonzola sauce is divine. Great service.A bit heavy on the wallet but definately worth every penny.

Absolutely delicious, authentic Italian food served by dynamic mom and daughter duo (I think?). Shop itself is nice but probably not the best location given usual Joburg car park setting.

Sitting atop a parking garage without a visual reference, driving in made me a bit apprehensive. When you go through the door to the restaurant an airy, light feeling takes over. Clearly driven by making your experience personal, the service is exemplary with the owner popping in to check how you are doing. Italian restaurants can either be small family... More

After all the hype I was expecting a fantastic meal at Cafe del Sol. Unfortunately it would not live up to expectation! We were a table of 8 seated in their private dining area (Bryanston branch).
