This is one of the better Italian restaurants in Johannesburg. Family atmosphere, good quality food, well prepared. I think that the pricing makes for good value.

We have been here a few times and they never fail. With a lovely restaurant with walls full of paintings, mosaic and friendly service this is a place you still have to try. If you love Italian food this is the place for you. You might not find parking and would have to walk a bit and you have to... More

The food looked and tasted like real home made/cooked meals. The food was tasty and portions were proper. The waiters gave fantastic service.

The Alfredo has too much of a watery cream sauce and very little ham. Reading the good ratings I thought it would be great but alas. The waitress was awesome but he food a letdown.

Try their filletto. It is a nice family restaurant that is often quit busy. But always friendly and the service is great. A little on the pricey side but worth it.

In fact best pizza I have ever had anywhere in the world. Huge selection of Italian food. Quite often also have one of the two veal dishes on the menu and that's also very good. Very busy so best book or phone ahead for your take-away (that's what we do most Fridays).
