Review of Il Localino - CLOSED

Dining options: Lunch, Reservations
Description: L Localino owned by mother and daughter is an authentic Italian restaurant. The inspiration came from their joint experiences of having lived abroad, especially traveling Italy extensively. The menu is a joint venture it what mother and daughter love- Italian food and what it embraces; family, sharing, a sense of "togetherness". Individual personalties are evident in the dishes though. While Sandra loves the small bites to share on a wooden board (from calamari fritti to pomodoro ripieni to mozzarella in carozza), Maya loves the light anti-pastas and chef Rozane brought some South Africa influence into the menu, a twist on the chicken pasta; creamy smoked chicken and peas.

Having been there shortly after it's opening and having an average meal my wife tried it again tonight and nothing had improved. The clam pasta has again poor and calamari was average. Won't be rushing back!

This nice little Italian restaurant in Bryanston is brand spanking new and offers a great selection of Italian highlights and a few really unique offerings in Jozie like the Tagliere - and the best: create your own! Add some Mozarella in carrozza, Panzerotti Ripieni or Polpette. Oh man, I feel hungry! Their menu is showing a great selection of Primi Piatti and Paste as well as I Secondi - from the South African farm or the sea. Our last visit was a pleasant experience although the service was not really up to the standard of the Chef's output. Must have been the early visit just a few days after the opening. Overall: Let's go again!
