My family loves visiting this little restaurant. Service is always friendly and fast. It is by far the best authentic Italian food you can find in Pretoria. I highly recommend any of their pizzas or the spaghetti bolognese. Go enjoy!

Eating at Picolla Italia is like visiting your favourite aunt. The atmosphere is warm and friendly, and the food is superb. The thin-crusted pizza was delicious, and my pasta meal made me feel as if it was specially cooked for me to celebrate a homecoming....More

Went here for a last evening. We all had pizzas, and they were delicious. The only silly thing is that they charge you for every extra. Even if you substitute one ingredient for another, they charge you for it. We took our own wine. Normally...More

Been here many times before and as usual had the most wonderful meal. Pizza are divine, thin base and plenty of toppings. Pastas are excellent, service is friendly and the atmosphere is great. Love the intimacy of the restaurant. Can definitely recommend the Italian wine!

I had the pleasure to attend a Wine Tasting presented by Deetlefs Wine Estate. It certainly was much more of a food and wine pairing than the usual wine with food tasting. The food that was presented with the wine was exquisite and the winemaker...More
