We hadn't planned to go here after walking out of another restaurant further up Kloof Street due to being ignored, but we were glad we did. From walking in we were met by very friendly staff and were offered seating outside or in, smoking or non smoking. A good start. Note, smoking and non smoking sections are not seated directly...

We have heard this place has the best pizza in Cape Town. And we're sure they do. Amazingly good. Fabolous. Out of words... great service, good atmosphere, open fire and great wine.

It-s supposed to be italian food but they actually have no clue what italian food is. We had pasta and 2 different pizzas and we can tell it-s not italian at all and it-s really NOT... More

Sadly disappointed this time around, pizza was not as good as it usually is. Service was slow and poor. Hopefully it was just an off day.

Every time we have visited Bardelli's we have had fantasic service and a great time. Food is always hot and delicious, the restaurant is almost always full, but somehow we have always managed to get a table- they will fit you in somehow! We have made some great family memories here!

Description
Bardellis has been serving Italian styled food for 24 years in the suburbs of the Western Cape. The pizzas are described by many locals as the best in the Cape and the restaurant has been awarded best pizza on two occasions by public voting.Its common to hear world travelers regard Bardellis as the best pizza ever eaten. Always rated in the top pizza and the pasta is said to be a yardstick for Italian cuisine by some highly rated foodies. We serve only top quality ingredients, the fillet steak is a good example of the high food quality supplied. A small offering of seafood and meat dishes allows for some variety when in a large group. We also we get excellent feedback on our desserts and have been told that our creme brule is the best. The atmosphere is buzzing with an Italian pizzeria style. on busy nights and season booking is advised as we full up quickly especially if you would like roadside patio seating. Many locals enjoy dining here in windy conditions as the restaurant offers a wind free smoking courtyard and a covered patio. The courtyard and individual rooms make group bookings a perfect venue.
