A lovey relaxed atmosphere with delicious smells spilling over from the kitchen. We started off with the fried zuccini dish which disappeared in minutes, yummy. The pizzas were delicious with a crisp thin crust and fresh toppings. Two of our party ordered the pollo caciatore which they wolfed down appreciatively. A thoroughly enjoyable afternoon.

We recently visited Osteria Rossa for a family birthday get together. Etzio the owner made sure it was a special evening and took such good care of us, as did his staff. We tried their cocktails which were amazing and ordered a couple of platters of starters to share which were fantastic. We then ordered a couple of their large... More

3 of my business partners and me decided to have lunch the Osteria as the Italian menu looked quite appealing and reasonable priced. Service was at the beginning fast but not very understanding. We ordered each two starters which were all served at the same time.The portions were big but didn't taste too Italian. For example the vitelo tonato was... More

My favourite restaurant, they never fail to impress, from waiters who remember where you prefer to sit and owner who ensures everyone has a great meal and a relaxing experience. Exceptional food, great wine list and extremely good value for money. Best pastas, pizzas and very tasty banting dishes. Won't go wrong from a quick bite to a long lazy... More

The pizzas are delicious, and a great choice of toppings. The place is always busy and occasions we have had to wait a while to get our pizzas. But its definitely worth it. Good food with a good vibe.

On the recommendation of a friend we (seven) landed up at this tucked away treasure of a restaurant in Bedfordview. Hands down the best pizzas in Joburg. Service was exemplary and couldn't have been better. Will definitely be going back for more, especially for their Italian craft beers.

So we have been frequenting this little gem for many years and we probably will continue to do so as it has become a home from home but I hope the little things like the dirty (and sometimes smelly) toilet and the often uncomfortable noise levels don't turn people away. The food is unpretentious genuine Italian with no sprinklings of... More
