Dining Out

A little taste of home at Café del Sol Botanico

Jul 12, 2019, Author: Bianca Spinner

There are few things more synonymous with a city than a great Italian restaurant. Here in Joburg, we’re fortunate enough to have a vast variety of options, but how many of these are actually quality? Without a doubt, Café del Sol is one of them – they don’t call themselves the best Italian restaurants in Jozi for nothing. Whether you have a hankering for a traditional spaghetti puttanesca or a fragrant porcini risotto, boy, do they deliver!

The fact that the Café del Sol group is family-run is what we think has kept them thriving since 2007. Café del Sol specialises in home-cooked Italian cuisine and the family absolutely love what they do – it’s evident in each and every dish. Good news for foodie fanatics is that only top-quality ingredients are used. True to their philosophy, only the best will do – their salads are made with beautiful organic greens and imported Parmigiano cheese, while the beef is all grass-fed, the poultry is all organic and the fish is SASSI-certified. For this reason, prices are a little steep, but it’s worth every penny your belly will be ever so thankful too!

The flavours are maximised in each dish – not to mention the gorgeous plating – so it’s difficult to choose a favourite. However, if it was a life or death situation, we’d recommend ordering the slurp-ready sweet potato and butternut soup with a touch of coconut cream for starters followed by a hearty bowl of homemade gnocchi (which is made daily, just by the way) ended that all off with a decadent slice of Nutella cheesecake. Because it’s winter, make the Boekenhoutskloof Chocolate Block your wine of choice – it’s a red blend that lingers elegantly for hours.
