Zanele Kumalo


A well-timed small bowl of gorgonzola snails, not too rich, combined with perfectly heated rooms set the right tone and pace. You don’t wait long for dishes to arrive after ordering and a smoking hot pan of mussels, tossed in all the right ingredients – tomato, white wine, garlic and fresh herbs, of course – and served with imperfectly cut but perfectly crispy fries, is a saucy follow up. The al dente porcini risotto is creamy enough but the seafood is the star. Also look forward to steaks, duck, calf’s liver, adventurous vegetarian fare and simple salads.

Finish with a pudding or crêpe.


The wine list is carefully considered but broad enough to list local and international options.


The waiters aren’t as warm as the restaurant, but the service is professional.


It’s cosy despite the pared down decor.

Best for…

A family celebration.

    We had a lovely dinner at La Cucina Di Ciro. We had not been in years, and decided to take our American friend there last night. We were happy that the restaurant was still up to our expectations. The quality of the food was great, the owner was still very friendly and the service was on point. It is also such a lovely venue. We will be back, again and again and again.
    Never going back!! When my mother was out from the U.K we decided to take her to la Cucina. Apart from the appalling service, the food was close on inedible and the prices have become absolutely ludicrous. When our main course arrived and it wasn't what we ordered, the response from the kitchen was 'how dare we interfere with the chefs artistic flare' My wife then, against my better judgement, decided to book at the pudding shop to celebrate the birth of our child. Apart from being completely unaccomdating, they informed us (after we had provisionally reserved a date) that they had given the booking to another party. We feel as if their approach is arrogant. Good luck to them!
    Ciro's kitchen is the most established restaurant in our neighbourhood, and he still produces some of the best food in Joburg! Add to that the personal service, and very romantic setting, and you cannot go wrong.

    Love the place and banter from Ciro. Have not been there for sometime, but still dream about the dishes I have had.
