This brilliant Italian/Mediterranean restaurant has been open for the past 18 years, and is still owned by the original operator. They have also added a full Sushi Menu and they have one of the best selections of wines on the East Rand. The business has been extremely successful and has been growing year on year. Aside from their local regulars and passing trade, the restaurant has regular customers coming to spend an evening with them from all over Gauteng, as they are well located near the Highway, and their reputation precedes them. They have gained the reputation of being one of the best Italian Restaurants in Gauteng. The Restaurant is well known for its wide selection of mouth watering Pizzas & Pastas and delicious Mains for all tastes, from Steaks, to Chicken, to Fish & Seafood, plus a variety of fabulous Desserts, all served in an ambience that is typical of that found in the friendly local Italian restaurants of Italy. Coupled with this comes excellent service from their well trained Staff. They are also known as an ideal venue for any function, from Birthdays to Engagements and any Corporate Function, and will gladly create a Set Menu to suit any Budget, when and if required.

The business has thrived over the years and even remained profitable at the height of the previous Covid 'era' of 2020 and 2021. During the past 18 years it has proved to be an extremely sustainable operation, and is still going strong. An excellent well run and profitable business, in a very convenient location on the East Rand.
As the present owner intends to emigrate, the business has now become a brilliant opportunity for an experienced operator to take over a business that is already very profitable, and that still has room for plenty of growth.
A lovely opportunity that must not be missed by any experienced 'hands on' Owner/Operator!
