When you take a seat at Il Giardino in the lively 44 Stanley complex you could just as well be anywhere in Italy, relaxing in an olive grove next to a soothing dam with braziers to warm you when the weather turns chilly.
Set in one of Jozi’s trendiest spots, this family run restaurant has been named one of the best Italian restaurants in the city by Radio Today and has been featured on Kyknet and SABC 2.
il Giardino offers patrons delectable food and friendly staff. We have homemade pastas; seasonal vegetables, gourmet pizzas and delicious meat, chicken and fish dishes. During May 2013 we will be including a few traditional Afrikaans (Boerekos) meal options on the menu. This will then make il Giardino an Boere-Italian restaurant with a twist.
Meals can be enjoyed under the olive grove in the courtyard, in the pizza section or in The Room next to a cozy fireplace and AGA-stove.
The Room is il Giardino’s conservatory. It is a beautiful venue, with long 10-seater tables – perfect for city weddings with a difference, private functions and year end parties.
Live music, good food and a great vibe is the key to il Giardino’s success. On Friday evenings and Sundays during lunch we have live music on offer which range from Gypsy Jazz, bluegrass, country rock and honky tonk.
In the city of gold, il Giardino is definitely one of the gems.
