About

Situated within the courtyard of the trendy 44 Stanley precinct, Il Giardino is the place to gather under the shade of the olive trees to enjoy a long boozy Italian lunch or an evening under the stars. Start off with a traditional Caprese salad with layers of gorgeous, soft mozzarella slices, juicy tomato and fresh basil leaves finished off with a crack of black pepper and a drizzle of one of Il Giardino’s award winning olive oils – available to buy to take home from the restaurant.

Great ambience, music can be a bit overwhelming though especially if seated closer to the 'stage', having to speak a little louder in order to hear each other over the loudness ain't too grand. I'm a great fan of their pizzas!!!

Relaxed atmosphere in the buzzing Milpark streets.Food was good.Also accommodating for groups. The is definitely space for improvement with the service, but was not bothering or impacted on the lunch experience.

Incredible atmosphere and excellent food. An awesome spot for large or small groups to enjoy anytime but especially warm Joburg lunchtimes, afternoons and evenings. Ideally located in 44 Stanley, its not to be missed. More...

The prawns and the kingklip were fantastic. A pleasant surprise for a restaurant so far from the coast. The atmosphere is relaxed and the waiters are knowledgeable and have a high standard of service, what a pleasure.

One of our favorite Saturday lunch venues. The shops surrounding the restaurant offer interior decor, fashion and gardening items and the restaurants courtyard is particularly charming. Sun-drenched wine sipping and hearty portions of the well-executes Italian menu items is all topped off by the welcoming and efficient service. More...

Definitely the best menu for 44 Stanley. Do note that they close early on public holidays. They have gin on tap that is not great quality, but fairly priced. Specials are better value from your money than the menu items. Try to sit outside late afternoon. Parking is a problem so go early. More...

They had a night market tonight. This was my first time here. There was a nice crowd. Decent food. The place is charming though. I fell in love with the Italian restaurant seating under the trees. I'd like to come back when there's no market so I can actually see the place properly. It almost felt like I was somewhere in my hometown, Cape Town (CBD). More...
