The pride and joy of Blackheath, Lucio's has been an Italian gem hidden somewhere around the halfway mark between Northcliff Corner and Cresta Shopping Centre. Starting in 1987 with just 7 tables, the family-owned restaurant has grown from strength to strength over the years with the support of the surrounding community. Today, Lucios Pizzaria is now a 180 seater restaurant. Lucios is your 'home-away-from-home' and an extension to your own kitchen. Almost every special memory experienced at Lucios is woven into the Lucios Pizzeria tapestry. This is by far one of our favourite pizza parlours in Joburg.
From the creators of Marble in Rosebank comes Saint. Founders, David Higgs and Garry Kyriacou gained the original inspiration for Saint during their visit to New York in early 2016, as part of their planning and research for Marble. For David and Gary, the restaurant they went to in Manhattan had an unbelievable atmosphere. And, when clothing designer Alexander Wang walked in with a troop of models and started ordering pizza and champagne, they knew this was a combination they wanted to bring home with them. Saint’s pizza embodies this authenticity – imported flour, handmade local buffalo mozzarella and the freshest ingredients. Each pizza features a maximum of three to four toppings – unlike other local offerings. High standards and consistency are key – if a pizza isn’t the right size, right shape, has too much sauce or there isn’t a simplicity and balance of flavour, it doesn’t make the serve.
