There's nothing quite like homestyle cooking. Tortellino d'Oro offers all the wholesome goodness of home cooked meals, with the added flare of restaurant quality service and presentation. This humble restaurant and delicatessen has run for over two decades. Started with the intention of sharing childhood memories of family meals, Tortellino d'Oro has become a beloved community hive. This is where friends and family meet for good food and good times. It is also one of our favourite Italian delis in the city. Whether you want to simply eat like an Italian, or learn to cook like one, this is the spot for you.
Pasta, Pasta, and more Pasta!
You may be surprised to learn that Tortellino d'Oro does not have pizza on their menu. This Italian establishment is all about the pasta. Their namesake dish - tortellino - is a key-hole shaped pasta filled with all sorts of yumminess and topped with traditional Napoletana sauce. Their menu also features luxurious ravioli and moreish spinach and ricotta lasagna.
You really can't go wrong with any of their freshly made pasta dishes, so come prepared to eat like royalty. Tortellino d'Oro is also popular for the breakfast offerings. Come and enjoy a cappuccino the right way, accompanied by a selection of divine pastries. The restaurant's simple, yet elegant décor is the ideal backdrop for any meal, but there is something special about the early morning atmosphere here. Perhaps it is the quiet before the rush of customers to the adjoining deli.
This is undoubtedly one of Tortellino d'Oro's biggest drawcards. Second only to their famous variety of Italian ice creams. Whatever you do, make sure to leave some room for dessert when you visit. Our personal favourite is the Stracciatella - a perfect blend of vanilla gelato dotted with sweet chocolate chips. There's no better way to end off a meal than with a scoop (or two) of this heavenly ice cream. But don't take our word for it. Stop by as soon as you can to sample some for yourself.
Like we mentioned above, Tortellino d'Oro's delicatessen is one of the top Italian produce stores in Joburg. Foodies from all over the city travel here to get their hands on an array of authentic Italian products. From pre-prepared meals to pickles and cheeses, they've got it all. Prepare your very own antipasti platter or charcuterie board for your next dinner party with the freshest ingredients from this gem of a store. They also stock a variety of Easter and Christmas treats to make your family and holiday get-togethers that much simpler. Because let's be honest, no one wants to spend hours slaving away in the kitchen. Get yourself down to Tortellino d'Oro to find all you need to enjoy the best that life has to offer. We'll see you there!
