We ate here a couple of times and really enjoyed the food and ambiance. The portions were plentiful, we were even offered take away bags when some of the group were not able to finish the meals. The service was quick and efficient. The manager who is French I think, was really friendly and talkative and was attentive to the... More

Delicious wood-fired pizza. Won't disappoint! Went back there twice during a 5 day business trip, when there are tons of alternatives within a very short distance.

I'm a regular at Tivoli for three reasons - convienient for the surrounding hotel chains, choice of sitting inside, on the balcony or outside on the terrace, and the best pizza in Sandton from the wood-fired oven.

This was a good Italian restaurant with attentive staff. Nothing out of the ordinary but if you want a pizza or pasta dish this is the place to go!

To start our awful experience, not one waiter or manager informed the lady at the table next to us that smoking is prohibited in restaurants in South Africa. Our drinks were slow and they... More

The food was replaced just to have that just as bad. The pasta although it says is home made was like rubber and definetly not fresh. Waiters were rude... More

In Jo'burg for a month on business. This was by far the best pizza in Sandton. Really nice to sit outside and eat with a beer! Fond memories.
