If you would like quality food in the South without breaking the bank then head to Vera Vita. You likely wont regret it. For under R300 i have managed to feed four adults to satisfaction.

We went to Vera Vita on Saturday 9 June 2018. Was a lovely evening, waitresses and owners were very friendly and helpful. Food was average. But all in all a pleasant evening was had would not necessarily travel out there for a special dinner.

We gave this a go on date night and it was stunning... hadn't been for years... no specific reason ... certainly were not avoiding... just slipped our minds as an option. Lovely food, service and can't wait to go back.

Italian restaurant situated in the south of Johannesburg. Street parking available. Service was ok . Restaurant is very cold they need to work on some type of heating. Pizzas were good thin based. Pastas were not great ,we've had better quality pasta elsewhere maybe also...More

A gem in a authentic setting south of Johannesburg. Order a large Pizza - it's very large and enjoy the great quality. The staff are friendly and most helpful .

One of my favourite pizza venues, though they sell all types of food. Love the quality of the pizza-thin and crispy with good amount of filling. Very tasty. Love the ambiance of the venue as you can watch pizza being made. Friendly staff

The food at Vera vita is the most authentic Italian food out of Italy. The restaurant also successfully hosts private events.
