This popular Italian restaurant chain in Jozi is opening fully halaal branches. We checked out the Sandton branch on our recent trip up.

The menu offers Italian style starters, pasta and pizza in a rectangular shape which you can order in 6, 8 or 24 slices as well as a small dessert menu and mocktails. Our party of 6 arrived on a Saturday evening at supper time. There was already quite a queue which was a good sign for me.

Once we got seated at one of the booths outside the restaurant, service was fairly quick. We tried the Calamari Fritti starter which is crispy fried calamari and tentacles and an assortment of mocktails while we waited for our mains. The calamari went down well with everyone albeit a little steep at R90 for a starter.

Everyone ordered different pastas for mains and I went vegetarian with an Imola pizza topped with mushroom, olives, pepperdews, onion and garlic. This is one of the few places that still offers 3 sizes. The small is R75, medium R135 and large R250. The pizza was good but I wasn’t wowed by the flavour. The various pastas at the table were a Polpette with meatballs which was really good, an Alfredo with chicken and mushrooms which was little plain and undersalted and a tomato based one with prawns, I forget the name, which was also good. Pasta’s were all generous portions, served in large silver metal bowls and average about R90.

I didn’t spot a kids menu but most kids love the simple pasta dishes and I have yet to find the kid that doesn’t love a cheese pizza.
