We live in the area and decided to give Amarcord a try on Saturday night. We were met by a friendly waiter who asked whether we had a booking (which we didn't) and he relayed this to a lady standing nearby who I assumed was the Manager/Owner, and who, in my opinion, belittled the waiter by pointing to her ear...

After having had a few bad meals over the last few weeks it was nice to have a super meal again. My wife's favourite restaurant serves Italian food made by Italians. We both had a pasta dish and it is all home made with just the right amount of flavour. Service is attentive but not over powering nice selection of... More

On a monthly basis a friend and I visit restaurants in Jhb that we have not been to before. Overall a lovely experience, friendly and attentive waiters and delicious food. Definitely worth another visit

A lovely cheerful and welcoming Italian restaurant. The food is very good with a huge selection of 'specials' on offer. The service is friendly and good. Bring your own wine!

Had our monthly bookclub here. 11 ladies. Service was good. One lady arrived after our order was placed and her food still arrived with ours. Restaurant was full on a Wednesday evening. Food was really tasty and good. Definitely going back with my husband.

This was our first visit to this restaurant but it definitely won't be our last. Not a lot of parking directly outside the restaurant but plenty just across the street. I started with a portion of canneloni- don't bother with the half portion! It was the BEST canneloni that I have had outside of Italy! My wife's starter of chilled... More

We used to enjoy Luciana's Italian food already when she was still at the Post Office Center in Ilovo! She is now in partnership with Mario and their food is still as authentic and delicious as some years ago Beside the a la card menu the daily specials are worth to consider! Service is good and as they are still... More

As it was a family lunch party a large variety of dishes were ordered! Every dish was really good and was as one would expect in a trattoria in Italy. Nothing seemed to have been preprepared and as result the service was relaxed which gave the family time to chat and enjoy the company! Looking around there were quite a... More

I went to Amarcord with my family for dinner. It took a long time for us to be served and our orders taken. We then waited a further hour for our food to arrive. The food was nice, however, having waited so long I would have expected better.

We have returned to the relocated Amarcord three times in the past few months, recently taking friends with us too. Being able to bring your own wine whilst the restaurant awaits its liquor licence has admittedly been an attraction - albeit temporary. The food and service are really good and a testament to careful ingredients selection and skilled cooking. Try... More
