Dining Out

Saint … twisted Italian but still proudly South African

November 9, 2018, Author: Hello Joburg

On the hunt for the trendiest spot in town? We’ve got you covered, Hello Joburgers!  

In the last few years the Joburg gastronomy panorama has escalated to new heights and this is nowhere truer than at David Higgs’s newest addition, Saint. Masterminds Higgs and Gary Kyriacou, originally inspired by a Manhattan restaurant, have taken to their dough as a sculptor to his artwork.

It is quite simple, this two hundred and thirty-seater eatery is another superb addition to the Sandton skyline. We are utterly obsessed not only with the new mad and twisted Italian style concept it, but also the fact that you feel like you’re the only one in the room due to the impeccable service. 

Feed your greed with their Neapolitan style pizzas starting at R125. The pizzas are cooked in beautiful glistening golden ovens, imported all the way from Naples and each crusty cheesy pie takes just sixty seconds to create.

The never-ending dough-tossing exhibition alone is worth a visit. They make their own pizza dough; their own perfectly ripened tomato sauce and the cheese is local of course. We recommend chowing down on the OG, a Margherita with fresh mozzarella, a firm favourite.  

Also, try the fillet of beef from the fire, R265, finely displayed and raised on top of a decadent bean stew and served with herb salsa and a dollop of butter. If you’re a veggie they haven’t neglected you, the wood-fired beets dish (R165) with mustard greens, lip-smacking ricotta and a beetroot pesto is prepared exquisitely and seasoned perfectly.

The cherry on top of this lustful exploration is their sweet confessions; traditional affogato, a delicious tiramisu with mascarpone gelato or an orange and Campari cake. 

Whether you’re a saint or a sinner, all guests are welcome.
