We have been there twice - once for a working lunch and once for a romantic evening breakaway . Both times were very rewarding with all the boxes being ticked .Excellent food with the home made pasta topping the list . The ambiance was a cut above the rest and the service very friendly from the owner all the way... More

We were a party of 16 for a birthday celebration on 12 January. As food are freshly prepared we knew it will be a long wait, however...no bread or any other nibbles were brought to the table for our long wait. Considering it is not one of the cheapest restaurants the managers should really consider that patrons ate hungry by... More

One of the few restaurants in Johannesburg that gives you a truly five star Italian dining experience, with wonderful pasta or risotto or other mains, delightful in every bite, a must try!

Friends took us to this restaurant. It is tucked away in a quiet shopping center in Olivedale but what a great surprise. The food was excellent and the service first rate. Primarily Italian menu but you are really going to struggle to go wrong here. Also have a good wine selection. I will definitely go back, but make sure you... More

We visited as a group of 5 people. I was looking forward to the food considering the rave reviews and awards won by the establishment. I ordered the stuffed calamari expecting a treat. Unfortunately, the dish fell well short of my expectations. The filling was a lousy paste that just didn't taste good and ruined the experience for me. I... More

My first visit and I thoroughly enjoyed the food. Food quality was of a very high standard. I had the Gnocci pasta which was the best I have eaten, although the portion could have been a little bigger. All the dishes ordered were of a very high quality and standard. Prices are on the high end. I enjoyed my visit... More

Go to Café del Sol and have the calamari pasta - I promise you, you will be transported to pasta heaven. The pasta was the most perfectly cooked pasta I have ever eaten in my life - just the though of it makes me want to go back there immediately. For the main course I had the Beef Wellington. Delicious... More
