Restaurant Reviews by Judith Back to top
**** Piza e Vino, Cambridge Crossing, Paulshof:
This is one great place to come to especially with children who can make
their own pizzas. It's very good for the grown-ups as well. We came on a
night when they have live music, which was a real treat. Here the hot chocolate
is to be in awe of - a glass of hot milk is brought accompanied by a small jug
of dark hot chocolate, so that you can mix the two to your preferred strength! I
chose Flagstone Chardonnay - hey I'm really getting to know new wines these days!
My partner went for Pasta Napoletana and I for Calamari Fritti with a touch
of chilli. Both dishes were excellent. Mduduzi's service and the attention of
the managers as well make this a restaurant to recommend.

**** Doppio Zero, Chilli Lane, Rivonia Road,
Prima Piatti has closed so Doppio Zero won us for the evening. Always a
friendly restaurant to go to, if a little noisy! I ordered False Bay Chardonnay
and my partner went for hot chocolate. We then shared the oxtail, which was a
really great choice. Rich and meaty and a worthy portion to feed two people!
Bongani gave us excellent service as well.

therefore, the results must be "credible".
