From the time you enter the restaurant you are welcomed and served professionally. Food is fantastic , all that one could ask for from a Northern Italian Restaurant. Reservations are important ,even on week nights.

Cafe Del Sol serves arguably the best Italian food in Johannesburg! Unassuming surroundings contrast with sublime sophistication on the inside. We've been loyal customers for over 6 years and have to stop ourselves from going nowhere else.

I last visited 5months ago, and prior to that I've visited the restaurant frequently. I must say that every visit was a delight and the quality of food & wine constant as expected from such an established restaurant.

Great service, food good and beautiful decor. The menu has good choices of pasta, salads and light meals. It's great for a treat as the prices are somewhat pricey. But as they say 'Ce'st la vie'. Worth having a meal here though.

Classy and elegant setting, with great food and excellent service. Although they had run out of one of the specials they recommended, so get there early. Overall very pleased.
