Authentic Italian

made with love

The Menu

Italian food is less about the style of which the dish is made and more about the passion that is put into making it.

Who better than the nation that practically invented the term ‘love” to create such amazing dishes with something as humble as a tomato? And love is but a few of the many things Italians do best, but loving everything they touch is the secret to this family’s 30 year dedication to preparing traditional Italian food. Just like love can’t be hurried nor can the enjoyment of Italian food, so what better way to enjoy it than with both hands or swirled lusciously around a fork.

We at Villa San Giovanni have a few secrets up our sleeve! Love and Passion goes into all their dishes and gratitude of course for serving you the best Pizza and Pasta which is prepared with their unique dough made with all those yummy imported ingredients in a ‘only one in SA – proudly Italian’ rotating base pizza oven and not to mention over 30 years’ experience, one doesn’t have to think hard why Villa San Giovanni is the obvious and only choice for the perfect pizza in Pretoria!

Chef and founder owner Giovanni Maiorana has been honoring his Italian heritage (he’s from Calabria) by bringing true Italian cuisine to the north of Pretoria since 1981, since then his been sharing his passion for cooking and eating with family and friends, because at Villa San Giovanni we bring you the same wonderful experiences we grew up with.

What’s good food without good wine? Over the years we have made sure that both the wine and food are of an impeccable standard.
