很不错的地方 值得推荐 可网上预约 主题适合约会或家庭聚餐。 前餐很有特色 食材新鲜 主食意面应该是自家做的。发泡酒味道目前发现最特别的一家。 值得尝试。 美中不足就是停车位是在路边。

Ciro’s is spectacular. Ciro himself is engaging and wonderful, and so is the whole staff. The environment is soothing and basically perfect. I’ve been eyeballing this place for almost 3 years but keep missing it due to holidays but I aM SO HAPPY I have been able to enjoy Ciro’s today. I will be back before they close for the holidays and will probably even order some take away Christmas food as the menu looks divine. Thank you Ciro’s! More...

I liked the atmosphere and the passion of management, chef and waiters is unsurpassed. Very caring and making sure that everything was okay. It's a great hid out full of charm and character. The outdoors are magnificent. Not too big but very convenient for small groups or couples. Kids do have a place too. The food is great. Will visit again without a doubt. More...

Very good restaurant! The food was excellent! We have only one suggestion, the chef’s specialists should be available written, to make easy the choice for foreigners travelers.

Hands down best Italian if not restaurant in Jhb. Food is fresh, authentic, full of flavor. Ciro is an engaging host and happy to be of service to any query. The waiters are friendly and helpful. Prices are very reasonable when compared to restaurants purporting to be of similar quality. More...

With excellent food and great service it was very nice eating at La Cucina. The chef gives personalised attention to each table and the servers are unobtrusive yet helpful. Will definitely return.

Fantastic Italian eatery - enjoyed conversing with the chef about the specials - he comes to each table throughout the night, and a fantastic meal and service overall. We had a few ‘small plates’ to share and there were a few real knockout winners:Snails in pepper Gorgonzola chilli, garlic, gratinated Parmesan (a special that night and one of the best things I’ve ever eaten)Bruschetta with lamb kidneys and chorizo - delicious. Calamari stuffed with linefish - tender, fresh, tasty.Sardines - best I’ve ever had. More...

Ciro owns this house converted into a restaurant. Hearty meals and cozy setup. Menu gets changed every season, but there are a few meals that are always available. Warm in winter and cool in summer. Under the tree in summer is amazing. His daughter runs the café at the back. More...

For a visitor from the US, "Italian" is a stretch, but in the local culture, it's really a lovely themed eatery. I had a really nice fish (similar to cod) dish and friends had crispy duck. All were very satisfying. Gravlox were smoked less than I've had in the past. Nice south African wines. All in all very nice. Very good service as well! More...

I had not been to this restaurant before and went there due to a rave recommendation from friends.The restaurant is in a good spot with lots of parking, the owner was a seasoned restauranteer with quick wit and good banter. Whilst I thought the food was quite good, I didnt think it met my expectations, I also felt my main course could have been a bit bigger, but overall it was a good experience and I can see why it is so popular.

I really like this place. It's very popular but unlike 4th Ave Parkhurst, you can make a table reservation. If it's not too crowded, you can have an intimate dinner for two. The décor is simple, the lighting warm and flattering. The owner, Ciro, is also warm and helpful as he rattles through a long list of specials. Rarely disappointed. Pricing is moderate rather than high, and it's possible to find a Red around R165. Been for several dinners and one lunch. Recommended, especially in comparison to Parkhurst's noisy zoo. More...

Since my last visit I feel that this spot has improved in service and value for money. The owner Ciro visits tables and offers the daily selection. Prices are fair for the quality of food and portion sizes. Intimate, personal owner run restaurants are a dying breed, yet still offer a worthwhile experience for those that value it. More...

The food is fantastic and prepared in a way that makes every meal feel specially prepared. Ciro is available to give every guest the special of the day and it adds to the personal touch of each dish/meal. The environment is cosy and perfect for intimate meals. Only issue was the waiting staff that were inattentive and not well trained, with the prices charged, the waiting service was not up to scratch. More...

What a incredible and delightful experience we had on our first visit to the restaurant. From the moment we were greeted at the entrance to when we left, the service and attention to detail was superb. After looking at the menu we thought we knew what we would have that was until the owner came to the table to explain the specials.I ended up having the Mozambique prawns and the duck and my partner had the lentil soup and the rabbit ravioli. Everything was exceptional.From the wine to the incredible dishes it was a night to remember More...

Highly Highly Recommended.Our first visit and boy were we impressed. Great ambiance, lovely setting and decor. Good efficient and friendly staff. Aside from the set menu there are also specials that the chef mentions at the table. I was surely impressed with my baked salmon which I requested as rare and rarely do I get it as requested. Moroccan soup and cauliflower fritters for starters was a winner. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals.Yes we will definitely be back! More...

Such an amazing restaurant! Menu is only 2 pages long which is good. Personal touch to all dishes. So well presented, and tasted delightful. Desserts were very good. Ambience is wonderful. Loved how the chef/owner? came to each table to tell us the specials. Only reason for my 4stars, is that the waiters often did not collect the dishes after I was finished. Had to sit with my empty plate for a while before it was taken away. More...

Gabriella's tea room. Beautiful beautiful place very accomadating and nice and intimate for our function. The service could have been slightly better.
