A good quaint restaurant with a very involved owner and friendly staff. Bosco's does offer an authentic Italian atmosphere and the food is very decent although a bit pricey. We had a very nice experience with tasty food and imported Italian wine.

Discovered this gem by chance. And on a whim decided to have dinner. Well, well, what an eye-opener. I cannot remember when last I ordered medium done steak and then getting it perfectly done. Hasn't happened for a long, long time. As for the oxtail, exactly like my mother used to make it. Falling-off-the-bone lip-smacking good! Listen to Hanlee (the... More

The quaint restaurant itself is lovely to visit. Despite its less than glamorous location at the back of a shopping centre, it is well shielded from the car wash view and boasts great service. Its main drawing card, however, is that it's entire menu is available for takeaway. My favourite lazy Friday eat at home spoil!

I have visited Bosco a couple of times with colleagues and friends and the food is always out of the top drawer. I boasted about the restaurant to my wife and decided to take her there for our 3 year anniversary. It got off to a rocky start. I made a reservation and had to stand at the entrance of... More

This restaurant is a true gem. The food is lovely and full of the comfort that authentic Italian food should have. It is owner run and Hanlee is the star of the show. She is attentive to her guests and adds that personal touch which is is a rare experience in today's bustling world. She has an expansive knowledge of... More

Having lived and visited most of the restaurants in the Sunninghill, Fourways and Kyalami areas, Bosco overall is consistently good with the food, service and past couple of years a lovely owner. Bosco has the edge on a number of restaurants in the area.

Small little restuarant situated in Sunninghill. The food is spectacular especially the Oxtail. The atmosphere is intimate, warm and the owner is welcoming and the staff are friendly and efficient.
