Small family run Italian restaurant. Very good pizzas and kids can make their own pizzas. Reservations essential on peak periods. Very good service, very good service, great value.

This eatery has been there forever and the food remains consistently good. Really well cooked, unfussy, tasty and generous, like Italian food should be. Popular with families, and situated in a tiny suburban centre. Reasonably priced and offering specials on some quieter week nights.

The salads, pizza and pasta dishes at this restaurant are a regular family favourite. Whether you need a huge meal or a healthy salad, this is the place for you.

We eat here regularly, the prices are good, wine list is reasonable and the food is the best!!!

I've know and lived near to this little place for a long time - somehow never went there for fear of its being too ordinary. Tried it one Sunday afternoon in May and found it surprisingly very good. The menu is absolutely straight-laced; not an ingredient or combination that hasn't appeared on hundreds of other Italian tratorrie menus in Jo'burg since 1960. I had the veal marsala, served with mash and veggies, and it was delicious - the mushroom sauce just right. Others had the veg caneloni and the osso bucco which all looked good. Sangria, and some bacci and a coffee. All at a price of less than R200 a head. Service excellent. Well done, Grappino, obviously a neighbourhood family favourite, when one gets tired of the innovative adventures offered by Assagi, Pronto etc.
