“Best Pizza in Johannesburg”
Reviewed 21 February 2014

I have been going to La Piovra for the last last 5 years now on a regular basis, at least X3 times a month.
Their food is always good, I highly recommend the pizza's, they make the best pizza in JHB, not once have i had a bad experience. The owners Lorenza and Massi are always there which makes all the difference, there food is of top quality and the environment is cozy and relaxed.

My favorite pizza has to be the Mexicana Pizza with Pine.

Have recommended this restaurant to sooooo many of my friends, and they all agree with me that La Piovra definitely makes the best pizza in town.

Keep up the great work!

Only recommendation I have is for the restaurant to invest in an aircon system, during the hot Summer months the inside of the restaurant is too hot to be inside cos of the pizza oven, so it’s best to sit outside.

“Homely Italian food at its finest”
Reviewed 19 August 2013

We have been loyal patrons of La Piovra for the last 6 or so years and we have never had a bad meal or experience there. They make the best pizzas in the east of Joburg (my hubby's favourite is the Mafiosa - with chicken livers) and their warm and welcoming restaurant is a pleasure to be in. The owners - Massi and Lorenza are friendly and always accommodating and our children (aged 8 and 6) love going there (even though there is no play area - usually a must for kids of this age). We enjoyed the Melenzane for the first time this weekend and it was fantastic! They are well worth a visit for any locals or visitors in the area and their prices are reasonable to boot. A meal for our family of 4 costs between R 300 and R 350 (with wine). A bonus in today's environment.
