“Outstanding”
Reviewed December 23, 2013

We were lucky to get a booking at short notice and had an memorable evening at this Italian restaurant out in the suburbs. Great maitre d', outstanding meals, reasonably priced, lovely ambience, interesting quotes on food & eating on the walls. Our waiter was serving a few tables at the same time - so he was not the most attentive that he could have been. Compares very well with Burrata in Cape Town.

“Plain on the outside, everything but on the inside.”
Reviewed December 2, 2013

Wow! This was simply the best food experience I have had in a long time.
The décor is unusual, but works very well. You may find your mind drifting into the walls, as you journey through the inspiring and quirky quotes penned by a multitude of famous names. Your taste buds will soon drag your attention back to the table, as the culinary delights before you refuse to be ignored. Each dish unique and sculptured rather than cooked. Great service matched the quality of the food. Prices looked to be in line with signature restaurants, my wife and I were invited, so I am not sure what the final bill was.
I won't even get into the menu. Just go and try it, you will happily pay for it.....

“AN ORDINARY NAME for an EXTRAORDINARY gastronomic experience.”
Reviewed December 2, 2013

From management through chefs to waiters and cleaners they never miss a beat! Low background music, fascinating philosophical gems on the walls and the best Italian food in Johannesburg/Gauteng/South Africa. Every dish has a creative side, a top chef's cooking skills and an artist's presentation. It certainly costs more than the local pizza parlour, but prices are reasonable for food of this quality. I would recommend it to anybody looking for that bit extra, but unless it's lunchtime early in the week, you MUST book - the best recommendation for any restaurant.

“Perfect venue and menu”
Reviewed November 28, 2013

Last night we hosted a relaxed and fun year-end dinner for 70 people at Cafe del Sol. Everything was perfect, from the top-quality three-course menu and efficient service to the chic, under-stated decor and table settings. Chiara,Luciana and the rest of the team bent over backwards to ensure everything went off without a hitch.
