I visited this restaurant on a Saturday afternoon, we were seated quickly and attended to, service was efficient. Food however was slightly disappointing, the Italian Burger was good but nothing amazing, Pollo pasta very average, pizza with chicken on very dry. Also got served hot chocolate where the milk smelt and tasted sour- overall disappointing experience- most definitely won't return.

This isn't the most obvious restaurant in Melrose Arch but I couldn't fault the food or the service. Very decent Italian food with good beer. The service though was the standout feature.

I love eating pizza at this restaurant. The seafood pizza is a personal favourite, and never disappoints. Service is always great. Prices are reasonable and the toppings are fresh and full of flavour. I enjoy the Zucchini chips, although when they have the zucchini fires those were much better. Go and visit for a great pizza

If you like cheesy thick crust pizzas, this is not for you. On the other hand, if you like pizza like the Italians make them, this is wonderful. Beautiful thin and chewy crust, with a decent choice of toppings. The shopping centre is sadly dead so the atmosphere isn't great, but you still can't argue with the pizza!

You could not tell that this thin crust pizza was gluten free it was so good. They let you share a large one with two different toppings. I had the prosciutto but didn't pay attention that it had also chili oil on it which made it far too spicy for me. Seating is inside or outside overlooking piazza. Service was... More

We had the Melrose Arch pizza. The toppings were very fresh. The crust is a bit thicker than most other places that have crusts that are more like cracker bread. Service was very good.

We had drinks here twice during our Johannesburg stay and while the drinks were standard, the staff were excellent

This restaurant had been one of my favourite pizza places...no longer. Bad lighting, cant hear myself talk against the live music, beer not cold, poor red wine selection which is served at room temperature (too hot). Pizza too has deteriorated.
