My search for finding a restaurant that doesn’t serve red meat turned into me finding one that doesn’t serve chicken instead (LOL Life). Locando Villa 47 on Bree Street ended up being the only place for us to grab a late lunch seeing as most restaurants around the area shut down at 16:00 to prepare for the Dinner service from 19:00. We were lucky the kitchen was still open because we literally just made it in time before they closed. Any-who once our waiter seated us he took us through some of the menu items in English and Italian which was a lovely notable touch. Turns out all the waiters are trained in Italian now that’s cool and different. Our waiter was on the ball and attentive, the entire vibe of the venue is so fresh & inclusive. The open kitchen adds that extra va va voom and the front of house management are all available throughout giving you a great sense of comfort.
The Food: It was delicious and cooked to perfection. The Calamari coating was light, crispy and seasoned to exquisitely. The dessert menu only has 3 options which made the Tiramisu an obvious winner as that was the only thing we could pronounce with confidence LOL. That tiramisu I must say was the best I have ever had in my entire life! It was very POWERFUL! Loved every last drop of it and I am not a big fan of dessert.
The Cocktails: I kept it simple with a Mojito but no turns out these guys make everything so distinctive that what I was drinking looked like a Mojito but it tasted like something out of cloud 9.
The Pricing: It’s a bit pricey nothing extreme but do plan before hand. You can look at spending R350 for two, so if you are planning a group lunch/dinner then be prepared. It’s worth every penny though.
Will I be going back anytime soon? HELL YES!
