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

This is probably is some best Italian pasta you have ever eaten. It's not 5 course dinner or breath taking views - neither breathtaking decor as you will sit on the plastic chair BUT pizza - Pasta is one of the town's finest! Missed fresh orange juice with my Campari but it really doesn't matter any more - given what... More

We usually frequent this establishment for lunch on Sundays.Not sure if things are better on other days but the last couple of times we have been here the service is a problem. Food is good. Otherwise still a good place for lunch.

I ordered two tray-sized lasagna's in December to take to our holiday home. You simply drop a dish with them (or I'm sure they'll prep it in a foil tray). They freeze well, and its very quick to pop in the oven and heat up. Their pastas and pizzas are excellent.

Rossa has everything from a quick pizza to traditional Italian fare. Really good value for money, their trademark square pizza is a treat, or try the veal or fillet tagliata!

When we don't feel like cooking and we in the mood for pasta, Osteria Rossa is our favorite. The pizzas are the best!
