Description: Bardellis has been serving Italian styled food for 24 years in the suburbs of the Western Cape. The pizzas are described by many locals as the best in the Cape and the restaurant has been awarded best pizza on two occasions by public voting.Its common to hear world travelers regard Bardellis as the best pizza ever eaten. Always rated in the top pizza and the pasta is said to be a yardstick for Italian cuisine by some highly rated foodies. We serve only top quality ingredients, the fillet steak is a good example of the high food quality supplied. A small offering of seafood and meat dishes allows for some variety when in a large group. We also we get excellent feedback on our desserts and have been told that our creme brule is the best. The atmosphere is buzzing with an Italian pizzeria style. on busy nights and season booking is advised as we full up quickly especially if you would like roadside patio seating. Many locals enjoy dining here in windy conditions as the restaurant offers a wind free smoking courtyard and a covered patio. The courtyard and individual rooms make group bookings a perfect venue.

Thank you for taking the time to wright a review. I am unsure of which restaurant you ate at and who served you. What I can say is that sometimes we employ people who cannot deliver on what was promised at the interview. These staff are given a fair chance to improve and fit in to our quality culture.Often these individuals leave on there own.I am sorry that you had to experience bad service in our restaurant. We would love you to return and hopefully you would have noticed a marked improvement.
Warm regards

“Random choice for a light meal turned out well.”
Reviewed August 9, 2012

We were searching for a cosy restaurant to end our stay in Cape Town with a light meal. We walked by this restaurant and a peek inside made us go in. The waiter was a newbie, but a very friendly one. Although we had to wait little time before getting some drinks (waiting can be long when you're thirsty) the service turned out to be personal and adequate. The food (calzone and a regular pizza) were really nice! They had Thin crisp bottoms en were richly topped/filled. As we frequently visit restaurants in Italy and Italian restaurants at home, we can place this pizza's in the upper section of our list. After our visit we read this restaurant is part of a chain. We really couldn't tell and that's okay!

“Bardelli's , Kloof St , Cape Town”
Reviewed May 28, 2012

We stumble upon this little gem by accident one day. This is most gorgeous and intimate little pizza restaurant in the whole of Cape Town. They uses the freshest ingredients to create the most delicious pizza any one can ask for. Indeed the best wood-fire authentic pizza restaurant in the Western Cape.
