We often have dinner on Friday evenings here with our kids. The food is really good with a very large variety. Kids can make their own pizzas in the kiddies kitchen. The play area is very large and gives the adults some time to talk to each other. Their pizzas, pastas, fish and steak are all very good. They even... More

Great atmosphere great food and generally great service. The waiters are knowledgeable and friendly. We prefer it as a dinner out spot and usually frequent it once a month. Love sitting outside watching across the lawns of the wonderboom airport.

Situated at the Wonderboom airport, this is one of those few restaurants serving authentic Italian food. Managed by an Italian couple. It has a full fledged bar. They also have a all you can eat buffet on certain days. Must try the pasta. Its mamma mia. Must go if you in Pretoria. The service is also amazing.

I love airports, so visiting Villa San Giovanni at the Wonderboom Airport is a very special treat for me. What makes it even more special is the wonderful food and friendly personal at this restaurant. I was very impressed with their portions and my companion says it's the best pasta he has ever tasted. Well done Villa San Giovanni!!

The location is great, being right next to the aircraft parking area with only a fence between you and the aircraft. The food is perfectly acceptable and pretty much average. The portions are very large, which is great if you're hungry. The tins of coke are R19 each which I believe is excessive.

Thank hendrix2015
