“Authentic Italian!”
Reviewed 8 June 2014 via mobile

Franco still makes one of the tastiest pizzas in Joburg. Friendly staff make you feel at home. He has been in the food business since the 80's and definitely knows what he is doing. I will be back on a monthly basis!

Lovely family owned establishment. Have been going there since we were young children. The place to go when you feel like Italian food.
