I read many good reviews of this restaurant and most of the reviews seemed to have been great but our experience was a little disappointing. It is very romantic and the setting is great, quite intimate, but the service was slow (even though the restaurant...More

Great meal of innovative dishes comprising fresh produce. Beautifully prepared and served. An excellent venue to have a long lazy lunch with good wine.

Book in advance... it's a great experience and if you'd like to treat someone, it's a great choice. Worth it to arrive early and have a drink in their bar before or if the restaurant is full, grab a bite there.

I'm Italian and I don't like eating out. The reason is because most restaurants can't beat the food I get at home. My grandmother had a natural talent for making delicious food which was passed on. This place combines Nonna's cuisine with excellent service in...More

Small Italian restaurant in Olivedale. Good Menu choice (Altho no pizza). Staff are knowledgeable and deliver a good service. Food is always excellent. Not really geared for children in terms of space and menu although some families do take their kids.

Still the best place for pasta in Joburg. Exciting menu, great wine list, homemade joy on a plate. Reasonable prices for such quality. No more reason to go to Italy for your pasta fix, you can get it in Olivedale!
