I came to Michelangelo's three times in two days; once for a meal and twice for a drink. It is a great alternative to the busy restaurants on Nelson Mandela square. The food here was excellent, and the service top notch. There is also a closed courtyard/lounge/bar area which is great to enjoy a drink. If you're lucky, someone will... More

My husband and I spent weekend at The Michelangelo Hotel and had supper and breakfast at the Piccolo Mondo Restaurant. What a wonderful experience - from the friendly service, smiles from all the staff to the most fantastic food! We were blown away and can't wait for our next visit. Thank you to all the staff who made our experience... More

For me, this place was overrated. It is not very romantic and the waiters are not very attentive. The food was average and over priced. We left very quickly. I wouldn't go back.

It was one of the most amazing evenings. We had a great menu, well trained professional staff, the service was excellent, the wine pairings accompanied each dish very well. I will recommend this to everyone. Keep it up. I cannot wait for our next gourmet dinner!

Was invited by friends to have high tea at Piccolo. Truly an enjoyable experience and worth the visit. A buffet of so many choices of savories and sweets. Waiters very attentive . Great place for a special occasion, will definitely return.

We had breakfast here during our hotel stay and found the buffet to have a wide variety and the food to be well prepared. You can also order things off the menu, but the buffet really has quite a lot to choose from. Specialty coffees were also included. The servers were very attentive and friendly.Overall, we enjoyed our dinning experience... More

Four of us ate here on two occasions, a few weeks apart, on a recent trip to South Africa. Would strongly recommend the place. The room looks very nice (although in no way South African - more Vegas as the picture shows). Both times we had good meals - perhaps not consistently exceptional, but certainly very good and some meals... More

Delicious food and excellent service. Just a few steps from the Nelson Mandela Mall. People in our group had chicken roulade, deconstructed Beef Wellington, pasta, pork belly...and everyone was pleased.

I decided to go to Piccolo Mondo, as part of spring's Restaurant Week, for my birthday. The set menu was great,making it hard to choose, and the service from Thabang was great. We had a very delightful evening and looking forward to going back.
