This is a quaint little restaurant located by a small local airport in Pretoria North. The food is good and has the feel of a home cooked meal as opposed to being restaurant type, which isn't a bad thing at all.

The quality of the food and the type of service which was received was of a very high standard. The restaurant is situated close to the runway which gives you a firsthand view of the passing aircraft. This allows you to truly appreciate aviation whilst enjoying a lovely meal.

We stayed here two different weekends while visiting friends in town. Very comfortable, clean rooms with an excellent restaurant on site. It’s located right on the airport premises so you will hear a lot of airplanes but that never bothers us. Great WiFi. Only negative was no free parking.

The hotel is significantly overpriced relative to what is available in the area of Wonderboom airport. If you pay over the odds, then you expect a little more - but in fact I got a lot less. I am a disappointed customer and I will never stay at VSG hotel again.
There were many aspects of my stay that were not up to scratch.
I made an attempt to contact the hotel to provide private feedback via their advertised email address. 4 weeks later no reply or acknowledgment. They clearly don't care.

The food and service at Villa San Giovanni is excellent. The ambience is lovely. True Italian restaurant. Love every minute of it. The rooms are neat and clean. A real family restuarant. The owners make you feel like you are part of their family. I can recommend to anyone.

Great atmosphere great food and generally great service. The waiters are knowledgeable and friendly. We prefer it as a dinner out spot and usually frequent it once a month. Love sitting outside watching across the lawns of the wonderboom airport.

What a pleasurable Sunday lunch. The best creme brulee I had in a very long time. The wine is a bit pricy but acdecent atmosphete and gorgeous Italian food makes it a "must do" in Pretoria. You can get a free cuppacino when you review the restaurant on Tripadvisor but even then, we will be back as I honestly think this is one of the more authentic Italian restaurants in the city

I arrived at Wonderboom International airport just after 8pm on a Sunday evening, only to find Villa San Giovanni closed. Oh no. I would have to sleep in my car, and I had an important meeting at 0600 the next morning!
I decided to try my luck and call the number provided on the booking confirmation. Thank goodness someone answered.

After that it wasn't long before I was checked in and settled in my room. It was here that I found out check-in closes at 1800 on Sunday's. Oops.

The rooms are situated upstairs in the terminal building, and most have a view overlooking the apron. The passageway to the rooms has lights that switch on automatically, and a humidifier runs 24/7.
The room is styled in clean grey's and silver, with tiled floors, a wardrobe, table, TV (with a small selection of DSTV channels), bar fridge, and large bed.

The bathroom is similarly styled. The entire feel of the room is one that is clean-cut and sophisticated.

Hungry? Just head downstairs to the restaurant which serves everything from burgers to spaghetti bolognase. There is also a massive variety of beers (both on tap and in bottles). And the breakfast is superb, with coffee that even had me smiling early in the morning (and I'm not a morning person!)

I have stayed in similarly priced accommodation that wasn't even half as good as Villa San Giovanni. Should I ever have business to conduct in Wonderboom, I will definitely stay there again!

"I had a room facing the runway, maybe try the other side. Take one furthest down the passage to avoid the terminal noise."
