Hi, Of all the pizzas my family and I have eaten in Johannesburg, the 2 Mexicana (Bolognaise) we bought as a take away last night, 20/07/18, was by far, the worst pizzas we have ever eaten. It was the biggest waste of R240.00 spent. They...More

I've only eaten there twice, and once ordered take out. I would not recommend the take out option. Very average food, at above average prices.

We stayed in Joberg for 2 nights, both at the start and the end of our SA holiday. We ate here both nights. It has an outside area, but it can get quite cool in the evening, so we ate once outside and once inside....More

Simple but excellent proper Wood fired Pizza. Strong coffee. Nice and laid back, and your small dog is welcome. We are never disappointed with the food or service. Well worn decor, but well executed food. A Melville must visit.
