Hello Joburgers, we thought we couldn’t send you off into another weekend without a classic…
Zio La Fagmilia is a little gem of an Italian restaurant, situated in the heart of Hyde Park, on a piazza that is warm and welcoming in the winter, and perfect for alfresco dining in the summer.
It’s also the perfect venue for those life events you want to carry in your memory forever, like engagement parties, 21st birthdays and anniversary celebrations.

Executive Chef Jonathan Nel believes that occasions that are of sentimental value need to be treated with the requisite importance. With this in mind, he works with the host to design a meal that is both within the Zio wheelhouse in terms of food style, and the perfect match for the event.
Zio recently hosted Iranian aesthetics therapist, Neda Roodaki, who is the owner of Neda Beauty and Healing, and the 16 Miss South Africa finalists.
Neda used the Zio space to give the 16 finalists a therapeutic art class.
After which, the gorgeous young women were treated to a brunch that was specially created by Chef Nel for the occasion.
It included Grilled Watermelon, crunchy Pistachio Granola and the ultimate bowl of Halloumi, Quinoa, Organic Beetroot, Tenderstem Broccolli, Poached Egg and Dukkah smothered in a tangerine dressing.
