Unusually, Francoâs doesnât charge corkage on the first bottle of wine you bring. Isnât that nice! This cosy restaurant has good food at plain prices, a lovely homely atmosphere, no pretentions and pleasant, ordinary, unfussy South African service. Nothing special, just a hearty enjoyable meal in lovely company at a reasonable price. What more could you want.

Welcome to Jamie's Italian. We're all about beautifully sourced ingredients & simply cooked Italian comfort food that makes you happy!
An absolutely incredible restaurant experience. 10/10! Excellent service (not 'over-the-top' like some places), and meals. I really loved the Tiramisu dessert which really was incredible. Terrific atmosphere created by the staff and the way the restaurant is set up. I was able to watch the chefs at work... fascinating. A huge Thank You to all for a wonderful evening!Hi 1kristinfThank you so much for the review and interacting with us further. This is fantastic to read.

At Stelle, our philosophy is simple, we are inspired by the finest, freshest ingredients and the most authentic vibrant flavours.
This is a truly authentic family run Italian restaurant, relatively small but very personal with a lovely ambience. It was a lovely evening so we chose a table in the garden. We did, however, notice the two fireplaces for winter, which means we will be back then to check it out. One of our personal highlights of the evening was the polenta chips served soon after arrival - well worth visiting Stelle's just for this speciality! My calamari was superb while my lovely wife had the Bresaola which was also excellent (I had to taste it). For mains she had the Straccetti di Filetto - a shredded grilled fillet with mushrooms - which she raved about. I had the rabbit ravioli which was incredibly good and super tasty. The service was excellent and personable with a personal touch. We will definitely be back!

Based on various reviews and recommendations, 10 of us went to Amarcord for our monthly dinner club. First great thing, unlicensed, so cost already reasonable. No starters, we ate various meals and deserts. Everything was great, no complaints from anyone. Service also good. Had the Osso Buco which was tasty, tender and a good size. Followed it up with Tiramisu which was also great. Definitely will go back

A cold and rainy night in Johannesburg? Easily rectified by a visit to the local Italian restaurant in Craighall, Pronto, for some hearty and delicious pasta. This firm favourite deserves its place as one of our go-to restaurants. Consistent quality and excellent service explain the full tables every night. We chose Linguine; Dolce Latte for him, and chicken with spinach, rocket and pine nuts for me. Both were creamy, flavorful and delicious. A ricotta salad completed the feast. A most enjoyable evening, delicious dinner and great service. Hey there. A huge thank you for your beautiful review and patronage. We so appreciate your positive feedback and look forward to sharing your kind words with the whole team. Happy dining and we look forward to hosting you again soon.

A friend and I met for dinner at this restaurant. It is located on the upstairs level of a small shopping center with secure parking. I had their lamb chops with spinach, beans and carrots. Their lamb chops were perfectly trimmed - to date I have never come across such three perfectly trimmed lamb chops! I found their service average and the waiters were not attentive, we had to repeatedly try and get their attention and I found this annoying because the restaurant was not busy. Their dishes are well priced, however there are some pricey menu items.

New to Johannesburg and friends suggested we should go for lunch. Short and sweet - the food was excellent. The olive and artichoke tapenade with bread was wow. Mains was so nicely prepared and tastefull. Negative - no aircon and in South Africa with global warming. It gets so warm the sweat is running down your legs. When we asked for fan because only selected customers get the previlage of fans. Owner said aircon is in process and we gave positive feedback she rudely turn around in middle of conversation.... I would say that is having no manners. It is sad because food excellent but think Everyone has the right to be treated as a human being.....

Food was better than average for lunch, but the service was super slow. Nice ambiance though for a lunch or dinner

Set in the hub of the Rosebank CBD is Doppio Zero's flagship restaurant. Located in in the exclusive open air piazza at The Firs, this popular eatery is well frequented for business lunches, casual dinners and weekend getaways.
I walked around the Firs looking in at all the restaurants and I immediately noticed the alert, interactive watrons and a lovely ambiance.I'm glad I chose to eat at Doppios Zero, the staff are friendly, helpful and assertive, When you ask for advice, they give it boldly- KUDOS!they know their menu and they keep their eye on you without being intrusive- KUDOS!Maybe many others also offer excellent food, but its the experience overall that counts in points.My pasta dish was very hot, on a hot plate, as pasta must be and the advice on choice from my watron Collen, was 100% spot on.I could see most patrons were also really enjoying the evening- the food, service, company- ambiance.

The nice outdoor area welcomed us with some late afternoon sun - as tourists we like this as many places value shade. Staff were helpful with the wine choice and later we had a pizza which was fine but not special.
