Fabulous place to stop and watch the world go by. Lovely interior, awesome service and the food is the best pasta I've tasted EVER!! Highly recommend the Sorrento pasta as a main followed by the lemon sorbet with tequila shot. I can't stand the taste of tequila but this was amazing, you really must try this to understand.

We’ve eaten before at Bardelli’s and enjoyed some excellent pizzas in one of the smaller dining rooms. Our experience on New Year’s Eve didn’t match that, as we were sitting outside above the bustling Kloof Street and the generally frenetic air was compounded by guests being turned away, and in one case, ejected. We were informed by the waiter that... More

Day 1 of our 5 day holiday in CT. This place we stumbled upon whilst walking down the road from our hotel. Excellent service, fresh ingredients and beautifully presented. Had the bruschetta and calamari starter- superb! For mains we had the chicken pesto (penne) pasta and the lamb sweet potato lasagne. Chicken pesto was amazing! The lasagne was a bit... More

This is my first TripAdvisor review. It was difficult finding a last-minute reservation on New Year's eve in Cape Town. One phone call to Jason and we were there half-an-hour later. A lovely small restaurant, relaxed atmosphere, superb service, excellent food. The Extravaganza pizza is a treat just to look at with its huge selection of vegetables as toppings (go... More

Very cute restaurant. Solid food! Pizzas very thin but very tasty. Very inexpensive and a nice local spot in a nice area. The pastas were very good and nicely portioned. Quick spot.

The setting, food and vibe gives you a most unique experience. Very romantic setting with the fairy lights and outside eating. The food was even better than the setting and vibe. Polenta starter Caprese salad, gnocchi from italian mamas home cooking. To top it all - Banting pizza with homemade base too. The manager made for a very warm welcome.

Bardellis has been serving Italian styled food for 24 years in the suburbs of the Western Cape. The pizzas are described by many locals as the best in the Cape and the restaurant has been awarded best pizza on two occasions by public voting.Its common to hear world travelers regard Bardellis as the best pizza ever eaten. Always rated in the top pizza and the pasta is said to be a yardstick for Italian cuisine by some highly rated foodies. We serve only top quality ingredients, the fillet steak is a good example of the high food quality supplied. A small offering of seafood and meat dishes allows for some variety when in a large group. We also we get excellent feedback on our desserts and have been told that our creme brule is the best. The atmosphere is buzzing with an Italian pizzeria style. on busy nights and season booking is advised as we full up quickly especially if you would like roadside patio seating. Many locals enjoy dining here in windy conditions as the restaurant offers a wind free smoking courtyard and a covered patio. The courtyard and individual rooms make group bookings a perfect venue.
