Hungry like wolves after a cycling wor-out in the CRADLE, no way to go back to town before a decent pizza paires with craft beers. Sure, jaws dropped and we stayed away from the crowdet outside table because of our stench ... Staff didn mind an earned themselves a proportionate tip that afternoon ;-)

Stopped over for a pint and a lunch. As per usual, the craft beer is excellent. Service is extremely slow and almost non existent. I could have got up after few beers and a bite. Nobody would have known. I know things are slowing down with the economic climate but hey, work for it. Sad. This Pizzeria is stuck in... More

I visited Celestino's for the first time and had a really pleasant quiz evening and dinner with friends. Overall the venue is excellent for families and kids have their own Pizza making station. The service was good and quality of food was excellent. I would recommend this venue for a good family evening out.

Coming back to Joburg from a lovely Magaliesburg outing we drove past what looked like a deserted shopping center out the outside of Dainfern. We saw the restaurant and thought well that looks pretty quite and mostly empty so it suits us, and has a big play area with a jungle gym for the kids. The atmosphere is very chillaxed... More

Very cosy venue with a nice warm fire. Good variety on the menu. Went with 3 friends and all of us were happy with our dishes, 3 pastas and one steak. The price point is very reasonable for the quality of the food.

My husband and I often go to catch a quick bite at Celestino's. We always sit outside whether it be in winter near the fire or summer under the canopy cover. The service is always great and the staff are welcoming and professional. Pricing is good and food is great. Thanks Angelo and team for always making our nights out... More

Celestino's offers a family friendly environment. They have an outside playground with lots of stuff for the kids. They also have a station where kids can make their own pizzas. My husband really enjoys the IPA beers. I LOVE their pizzas. The SERVICE is always excellent. Lots of smiles and they are quick. They also have a great quiz night... More

Expensive for the quality of food. Dog sitting on a restaurant chair with his owner was offputting. Spinach on the rump steak was cold. Had a cockroach running past our table outside. Won't be back.

During a load shedding stage, we were hungry and frustrated and drove around to find a place to eat. It turned out that Celestino’s had a generator and was able to accommodate our group. We all had pizzas and it was good. If you like a thin base pizza, with not-the-average topping combinations, then you ought to pop in for... More
