“Best breakfast”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

My daughters and I came to Piccolo Mondo on Saturday for breakfast. That was one of the most exciting breakfasts I have ever had. The girls also enjoyed themselves. The food was diverse and catered for all kinds of palate. It was great value; great ambience; and great service.

“Wonderful”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Fabulous food and great service - we were literally spoilt for choice. I thoroughly enjoyed espresso duck magret with incredible pate - followed by a palate cleanser of mango sorbet which transported me to memories of a trip to India. Alaskan crab squid ink linguine, chocolate milkshakes that make your head spin and a great wine list - what more could a girl ask for?

“Great Dining Experience”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

I was there last year for a birthday dinner, very nice ambience. I had the three cheese Ravioli which was divine, the waiters were lovely and food and dessert was on a high level. All round great experience for a special Evening.

“Fabulous Food and Service”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

While they prepare an excellent breakfast, I wanted to share that it is a wonderful place for dinner. The atmosphere was quite nice and the food was excellent. I had a crispy duck salad as a starter that was very good and spingbok as an entrée, which was absolutely divine. Perfectly tender and delicious. I thoroughly enjoyed the warm apple crumble for desert, and recommend it highly. Since 'hotel restaurants' can be spotty at best, I didn't know what to expect, but was more than happily surprised at how enjoyable it was. Highly recommend it if you are staying near Sandton.
