Il Bar Italiano
Cuisines: Italian
Restaurant details
Reviewed 3 January 2013

Despite the Sparyan decor it remains the best pizza and pasta in the city at a reasonable price. Best for lunchtime when one can sit outside on the big stoep. The manager is always very friendly. Pizza is always great, but special mention of the authentic pasta must be made (not the typical overcooked saucy mess found at lesser places) that come in truly massive portions!

What I like most about Il Bar Italiano is that it is a no nonsense chilled place with a very decent menu, good pizza, good pasta and the price does not rip you to pieces. Summer days are gorgeous sitting outside, but could do with a bit of 'Zhoosshiiing" up in the decor stakes.

Great for a lunch, glass of vino (Most pleasant) and wonderful for those inpromptu meetings.

I was introduced to this place by a very good friend and it was a pleasant experience. The place is small but clean and welcoming -- as well as the people working there. The Chef /Owner used to cook for all the famous and political figures in South Africa before he decided to put up his own restaurant. Il Bar Italiano is the best kept secret in Pretoria. I love the house speciality -- Susan's pasta!
