“Why travel to Italy ?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014

After our trip in 2013, we really didn't think we would experience the joy of authentic Italian food again without a major budget expenditure. How wrong were we ?!

Café del Sol, is by far our first choice for dining out in Jozie. The staff is always friendly, the owner always on hand to explain the food and chat.

You HAVE to have the fragolino sparkling wine!!

Pure culinary bliss and great for special occasions.

Book in advance :)

“The best italian restaurant in johannesburg”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

If you are looking for sublime authentic italian cuisine, look no further. This is the best italian restaurant in jorburg. The menu offers plenty of dishes, so you will definitely be spoilt for choice and every dish is made so lovingly. Their special meals are to die for! Definitely try this one, you won't be sorry.

“One of the best...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

This restaurant is a little hidden gem.
Found in a run down complex - it is so deceiving from the outside.
One of the nicest meals I have had in a long time.
The pavlova was beyond amazing!!
Will definitely be going back there
