Some of Pretoria’s best pizza comes to the table in an authentic less-than-perfectly-round shape. Try great flavour combinations such as pizza alla pera, with pears, walnuts and gorgonzola. Also on offer are dishes ranging from plain focaccias to something more elaborate, topped with gorgonzola, caramelised onion and almonds, as well as salads and an extensive choice of pizzas (from pizzette to large), with Banting and gluten-free bases also available.
Topping combinations include prosciutto and rocket; butternut, feta and pumpkin seeds; and roast leg of lamb with yoghurt, olives and coriander. The recently introduced gourmet burgers are listed alongside the pizza flavours, so that, for example, you can order a coscia d’agnello burger with lamb, yoghurt and coriander, just like the pizza.
An accomplished pastry chef, owner Toni Sime often has dessert specials available – but also try the famous dessert pizzas, such as the baklava scroll pizza with ice cream. The regular menu also offers chocolate mousse, nougat and a brownie.
A short but comprehensive wine list includes the likes of Glen Carlou pinot noir rosé, Creation Syrah Grenache and Edgebaston The Pepper Pot. A range of craft beers on tap and cocktails are also available.
Friendly, helpful young waiters ensure that tables turn quickly and food is delivered promptly.
Toni’s is situated in a converted house with a stoep out front and to the side, offering views of the enclosed kiddies’ play area. Inside, a number of open-plan rooms provide seating, some in view of the mosaic-covered pizza oven that gets fired up early every morning, a small trail of smoke signalling that the restaurant is open for business.

Hands down the best pizza I have tasted in South Africa. Toni comes the closest to making true Italian-style pizza. The Nutella or the Belgian chocolate dessert pizzas are absolutely delicious!
Best pizza and service ever! Not to be missed!
