Il Giardino

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. 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. It can be served 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 Wednesday and Friday evenings and Sundays during lunch we have live music on offer which range from Gypsy Jazz, bluegrass, country rock and honky tonk. Its only at il Giardino you will find rebel writer Rian Malan playing the guitar and Steve Boykie Sydley the sax. SAMA Award winning producer Dan Roberts and his friends (mostly Radio Kalahari Orkes members) come and play their country rock, blue grass and honky tonk music under olive trees once a week.

In the city of gold, il Giardino is definitely one of the gems.
