Sandiso Ngubane

For starters, the house salad includes burrata, prosciutto, artichokes, and rocket. Other options are a simple Caprese salad, and a small celery salad with white anchovies, parmesan and red onions.

Coalition is all about pizzas with fresh ingredients and bases that strike a perfect balance between crunch and chew. Classic menu options include margherita, Holtini (coppa ham, thyme, mushrooms and Italian parsley), Siyani (with chorizo, chilli and cherry tomatoes), the heavenly Cedare (salami, garlic, blue cheese and olives), as well as the Heleni, with toppings including salsiccia, friarielli and capers. If you don’t feel like pizza, short rib served with focaccia and greens is a delicious option.

To end off on a sweet note, dessert options include panna cotta, affogato home-made ice cream with a shot of espresso, and tiramisu.

A good selection of wines is available, with a few good beers, as well as Aperol, Inverroche gin and a few other standard bar options.

A relaxed atmosphere on a busy corner in Parkwood. Seating is inside or outside on the pavement.

Service is the one thing that can be a letdown at Coalition – it’s inconsistent, and staff don’t always seem bothered to smile or help with the menu. All in all, it feels more like a great place for takeaways than for sitting down and expecting to be well attended to.

Best for…
Lunch or dinner in a relaxed, intimate atmosphere – a quick, casual bite and conversation, takeouts, or a delicious start or end to a night out.

    Truly the best pizza in town. This coming from someone who is not a pizza fan. The Guiliana is my absolute fave!
    I have heard a lot of great things about their pizza and have been meaning to give it a try for some time. I was sad to find out that Coalition in Fourways was no longer open, so we headed to the original spot in Parkwood. The restaurant is located on the busy Bolton Rd intersection and finding parking proved to be a bit of a mission. Although the menu was quite limited, the options that we tried were absolutely delicious and probably the best we’ve had in SA. The pizza base is a perfect combination of crispy and chewy. A definite must-try!
    Had a lovely evening at the new coalition in Pineslopes. We were about 18 people and not once did it feel like we were an inconvenience. The service was fantastic, happy waiting staff, and all pizzas up to the same high standard. We are often surprised at the simplicity of the menu, but it’s always executed brilliantly and people rave about how delicious the pizzas are. The manager, Odette, deserves special mention for running this tight ship!
    Best pizza in Jhb!
    Coalition is our go-to restaurant for pizza & wine night. Incredible pizza, excellent service & friendly staff. Last night I had the Juliani bianco - delicious!
