We ventured out of our normal areas, to visit this well rated place in Olivedale. First impressions were good with a lovely atmosphere and friendly staff. We enjoyed all the food, but nothing really made us say wow. When we saw it was rated top ten on tripadvisor we were expecting something on the level of Licorish or 500, but... More

From the time my fiance and myself walked in side we knew we found a gem. A more than friendly welcome, a great atmosphere with wonderful staff all willing to help. Authentic Italian cuisine with a twist, 5 Star service. Thank you all for making our evening truly an unforgettable experience! We will be back. ITS JUST BRILLIANT!!

My husband booked a dinner for the two of us at Cafe Del Sol. He really struggled to get through the line, and eventually about a week later when we could make a booking, they couldn't accommodate us on my birthday, but the evening before that. Our meals were delicious, and it was good to see they'd included some interesting... More

this restaurant is well known for its great food and yes that is still the case, however a bad waiter with a attitude and not helpful can cause a bad taste regardless of how great the food is. Waiters need to realise without customers they wont have a job.

Everything about this place is right. The delicious food, the appealing decor, the excellent service, the convenience and the over-talkative, in-your-face, delightful host! The best Italian food south of the Mediterranean.

We found this restaurant on Trip Adviser and we were extremely impressed. The service was great and the personnel well trained. The food was tasty and well prepared. 10/10 for one of the best Italian restaurants in Gauteng.

It's easy to nitpick and reduce the score. So I won't. Good restaurants with fabulous food and friendly service are like hen's teeth so we will celebrate this johannesburg gem:) Solid portions, amazing variety, freshness, friendliness all come to mind when I think cafe del Sol. Bravo.

This is a well run establishment, good service from well trained, attentive staff and hands on owners. The food turned out to be delicious. The wine menu is very extensive from all regions and different countries. The location is not great but plans are already underway for a sister restaurant in Bryanston Shopping Center. Prices are on the high end... More
