I have heard only good things about Er Buco spanning its decades of being operational from its humble beginnings in Orange Grove many years ago to its new home in Linksfied, and in particular, its authentic thin crust pizza and famous cannelloni.

As such, on our first visit, we chose to share pizza, cannelloni and the beef ravioli. The winner? Pizza every time!

Don't expect fancy interiors or extensive wine lists, but if its authentic Italian that you are after, this is a tried and tested favorite. Anna, is truly the original "Mama" (as everyone so lovingly refers to her as) and she checked on our table often throughout our meal!

*Recommendation: Er Buco truly is a hidden gem worth making the trip for, and the prices aren't bad either (which is always a plus). I highly recommend their pizza!

This is arguably our favourite Italian restaurant in Johannesburg. It has been going for decades, and used to be in Orange Grove. Authentic cuisine. Service efficient. They have had the same menu for ever - that's how good the food is!

No problems with the food, homely, did the job, okay, etc. Great chat with the owner, a highly engaging Italian lady.
