We stopped off for lunch recently at the Orchards centre and wandered by chance into this restaurant. The menu was so different and interesting and the food certainly didn't disappoint. Sometimes pasta can become very "same old same old" but the pasta dishes from Tortellino are anything but. Everything was delicious and surprisingly different. Can't wait to return.

This is a fairly small Italian restaurant in the suburb of Oaklands, across the M1 highway from Melrose Arch. Exquisite Italian food with very good service. Every visit there has been enjoyable and the menu makes decision making difficult. Can be a venue for business meals or just for social occasions. Highly recommended. Not cheap.

Italian food in Johannesburg, far from Italy, but still authentic and delicious. The owner was friendly and interested to know if the 6 of us were celebrating anything special. We were - two of us were on holiday in Jo’burg…if a reason to celebrate was needed. The staff were quiet and efficient, the main waiter assigned to us, knowledgeable about the specials. We had two vegans as part of the party and they were able to amend the dishes to fit their requirements.

The pasta was delicious, with a number of variations of sauces for the different pastas on offer.

I would mention that although the lighting would have been perfect for lunchtime dining, it was a little too bright for the evening session. Lower lighting would have added to the atmosphere, a small point perhaps, but a number of our party commented on it.

Highly recommended and we will return on our next visit to Jo'burg.

We visited Tortellino D'Oro today for an early afternoon lunch based upon the good reviews we read on Tripadvisor and left feeling that we are unwelcomed at this restaurant. We did not have the opportunity to taste the food because the service was terrible. The restaurant was not very busy - many tables were available. From the moment we entered we experienced a cold and unfriendly greeting from the woman we presume to be the owner or manager. A wait staff member walked right past my husband and I to seat the couple behind us before he addressed us, although we had clearly arrived ahead of them. After seated, we waited almost ten minutes for someone to acknowledge us, only to have the waiter ask us to give him our entire order right then (drinks, starters, mains). I could not beleve this so we decided to leave. We will certainly not be returning to this retaurant again.
