I celebrated my daughter’s birthday farewell emigration party at Bardellis, and they were amazing! Food was excellent (and affordable), the ambience and vibe - warm, cosy and intimately welcoming; but above all, Ricardo and our assistant waiter were superb - engaged, intuitively proactive, and genuinely...kind and friendly to me and all my 16 guests! They made it feel like a “home party” removing all the work and stress!! I can highly recommend outsourcing all family celebrations into their capable hands! 🥂🍾❣️More

Arrived promptly at 1900. Drinks order placed at 1920. Food order placed 1925. At 2020 I queried when our food would be coming. “Manager” told me they are “very busy “- is that my problem? Meanwhile table next to us who arrived 20 min after...us were served starter pizzas etc before us!Manager said took extra long cos my wife ordered her pizza half and half as advertised by owner on 567 radio! My wife ordered the “figaro”-specifically told waitron-no bacon -it came with bacon on it!. I went to speak to “manager”- told him in no uncertain terms to “fix it”! 3 pizzas and 1 pasta enjoyed by all. Excellent pizza- good espressoMore

Hi Sorry to hear that your service wasn't up to expectations. We don't normally do half and half or the Olympia range during very busy periods, as stated on the menu. It seems like you had an inexperienced waiter. I will follow up and correct....More

My wife and I went to Bardelli's for the first time on 21/07/22 after threatening on a number of occasions. Definitely not disappointed that we finally made it. Such a cosy restaurant, making you feel right at home. Service and food to match....... We liked...the fact that Adam advised that a trainee waitress would be part of the team taking care of us. Definitely on the calendar for regular visits.More

We celebrated my daughters boyfriends birthday there on Thursday 16th June 2022. It was such a wonderful experience, tentative waiter, delicious food and a fire to keep us warm on a cold Winter's day. We drove all the way from Somerset West to experience this...rare gem of a restaurant - and wow we were all impressed. The pizzas were out of this world (best ever) and the pasta dishes sublime! I can see why this special tucked away little eatery has been voted in the top 5 restaurants in SA - it's well worth the visit and experience. We will be back.More

What an amazing little hidden gem. Great service and the most delicious VEGAN and Gluten free pizza's. I even had their vegan and gluten free lasagna on a previous night. They cater and adapt to all and any requirements.

At first when we arrived we thought we came to the wrong place as it didnt look at all like the pictures we saw online. However when you step through the first room into the courtyard we were blown away, such a warm and homely...place. The focaccia bread is the best I have ever had and the staff are extremely helpful.More

Responded to a social media campaign driven by Bardelli's asking for support - either in person dining or takeaways/delivery/collection. Have always had great food at Bardelli's and enjoyed good inperson service. Tonight however, I didn't even get past the rude individual who answered the phone....Granted, it's a busy Friday evening but then staff up and have someone to man the phone to receive the collection/takeaway orders that you have been promoting! Instead, I was told that because my cellphone number was "not on their system"" that I should go elsewhere! This was after a stop/start conversation during which time the rude individual told me (several times) that he was "very busy". I get it, but a simple "would you mind holding a minute whilst I deal with the customer's in front of me"" would have been better than the response I got. Realise that tempers are thin at the moment and that we are all struggling a little but seriously - don't advertise and ask for support if you are not going to resource up with emotionally intelligent, customer focussed team members. Posting this review in the hope that the Owners/Management of Bardelli's reads this and is able to address the issue (God forbid I spoke to the owner/Manager in which case the business is in trouble!) Won't be trying again - there's simply too many other options available where your business is valued!More

We have been a number of times, it's just around the corner and the food is good, service fab, easy parking, inexpensive, it's well worth a visit. It's only let down by the owner, after a few visits he confessed to being a Liverpool fan,...fortunately, he doesn't produce the food. Great place and worth a visit, the Carbonara is fab.More

Through the wonders of Air BnB, you get to stay in areas of the tourist drag when visiting and get to visit local restaurants. I would love to have Bardellis as my local. Quirky decor, great food and excellent service. We had to stop ourselves...from returning because that would have been the easy option.More
