Polpetta has been our neighbourhood favorite since it opened - the thin crust pizzas are fabulous and the Polpetta salad with its generous dressing (which can be purchased & taken home !) is a 'must' accompaniment to every meal.

Service excellence! Extremely delicious food and a personal touch by the owner Ivano and his brother Paolo. The very best and freshest salad I could have asked for (with yummy cheese), with a secret salad dressing so delicious that if you ask nicely you might be able to buy a bottle to take home. A huge selection of perfectly cooked... More

Lovely, crispy thin based pizzas cooked in a wood fire oven. Incredibly reasonable prices and service is very professional and efficient. If in The Sandton area Polpetta is a must visit.
