“Average food , average service”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

Had Sunday lunch at the Doppio Zero in Sandton. Food was average. Arrived hot and did not have to wait all that long but the service from the waiters took forever. Had to wave down waiters as if I was trying to land a plane. No one made eye contact. No one asked if we were enjoying our meal. And the food wasn't bad. Just that the service was below par. It's a pity since its in a nice location, has a nice vibe.

“Worst Italian in Joburg - Sandton City - Zero Rating”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

I have to say unfortunately that Doppio Zero is probably one of the worst Italians in Joburg.

It is a pity because I know there is a dynamic group of people behind the chain. It is also situated in the modern new part of Sandton city.

They should however seriously consider firing the chef, if there is actually one in the kitchen or simply rather close the place down so they dont take your money anymore.

Ate here with a client and I have to say the food was inedible. I ordered a simple pasta dish which was basically tasteless bland pasta floating in a soup of olive oil.

The pizza was basically a greasy piece of cardboard with absolutely no taste.

The food generally looks good as you can see from the pictures, but that is where it all ends.

Drinks came in filthy dirty glasses and had to send these back several times.

The staff were very friendly and apologetic.

Not quite sure where to eat in Sandton anymore as most places are pretty terrible. Definitely will not go back to Doppio Zero. I give it a Zero Rating.

The franchise owners should try their own food.....they will be shocked.

“Very relaxed lunch.”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

Very good food, setting and service, good value. We initially walked past looking for somewhere else we wanted to shop, asked a waiter if he could help. He gave us good directions, we went away and did our shopping, decided to come back a couple of hours later for lunch. He recognised us and we had a great lunch.

“Great Italian in a great setting”
Reviewed May 6, 2013

The Doppio Zero in Rosebank Mall (the Mews) is lively, vibrant and very welcoming. The outdoor atmosphere with children playing in fountains and running around, while you sit in the sun, is great! The food is quintessentially Italian and the portions are rather large, so I normally forgo the starters! Very good food, atmosphere and great for kids.

“Good for breakfast and cakes”
Reviewed April 20, 2013

Went here for breakfast, a rare treat for us. Excellent service and great hot food. Nice location as you can have the choice to sit inside at the entrance or upstairs with the view of Rivonia Road and watch the whole world go by. Sitting by the opening glass panels is great on a sunny day. I had the deluxe pancake stack, which was excellent and plenty of crispy bacon with the blueberry pancakes, what a treat.
