The building is not the nicest and cleanest and it can get crowdy and noisy, but excellent pizza and pasta at reasonable prices. Vibrant atmosphere. Friendly staff that manages things very well even when very busy. Great focaccia as starters and excellent desserts (although not...everything on the menu is available).More

The place was packed and the vibe was contagious. The food was exceptional and the service too. We will definitely visit again.

Decided to go on a date with my girlfriend for our anniversary at Borrusos as past times at here have been nothing but amazing, however, this evening was different. Everything started out great, food wasn’t as good as I remembered - but their major downfall...was the way in which the manager handle business within the restaurant. The manager was yelling across the restaurant as if there were no customers - as well as treating his staff with complete and utter disrespect. Not sure if I will be returning.More

Great neighbourhood pizzeria - a local gem, you're welcomed like family (bring your own wine!) into a comforting ambiance of warmth and aroma of wood-fired pizza. Rustic in every sense...

Great pizzas, friendly staff and well priced. Good variety of pizzas. A very good option for both takeaway or sit in. Pizza boxes could be stronger, they are a bit flimsy and can get pushed against the cheese.

We went here for the first time last night where three people with me ordered a small pasta each. The waitress read their orders back to them, reiterating "small" multiple times. A very generous portion size returned. Unfortunately, it was pretty mediocre and none of...them could finish it. But this is where it gets truly bad. The bill came and they had given us 3 large pastas instead. We took it up with the waitress, where a waitress we didn't even have claimed that we said large and basically accused us of lying. The fact that she wasn't even our waitress and thought she was our waitress either suggests gross incompetence or just lies. Now, mistakes happen, but we had to fight tooth and nail to not pay an exorbitant additional R60 for something we didn't order. The manager/supervisor accused us of lying, practically, and was incredibly rude, saying that we upset the waitress. A waitress who lied blatantly about first being our waitress and then apparently mishearing us. We finally won out, left the food that we didn't order, and left. Never coming back. Summary: Horrible, condescending and deceptive service. Yes, customers lie sometimes. But in general, it is safer for your business to trust them. You've lost at least 4 people and their families as customers for life. Be better.More

Been here many times , but not for a while..... Was delighted that the pizzas are still the best in town with delicious and generous toppings and the service is still awesome! Unfortunately the upkeep and decor of the restaurant is looking shabby and desperately...needs some attention....More

Burosso's is a great family restaurant, pizza, pasta, salads etc. The food is excellent, brilliant ambiance, the waiters are friendly, efficient and will go out of their way to make sure you are happy. Its a great place for families, groups and friends. I would...give them ten out of ten for their food and everything that goes with it. But, what a dingy building. Dark, dirty, unloved and just plain run down. Clutter of extra chairs and tables as you come in, tables crammed in and don't let me get onto the bathrooms.. I would hate to see it in the light, it needs a new coat of paint and a very good clean.More

I had their lasagne and my partner had the spinach cannoli. The waiter suggested we try the focachia to dip into our dishes. We opted for the margarita instead and we were so impressed. I can imagine the focachia would be better suited as a...dipper but we were in a cheesy mood so it went down like a homesick mole. I usually get their salmon and feta pizza (& add extra fresh tomatoe afterwards), it's amazing!Food always hits the spot! The service is exceptional, waiters are friendly and on the ball, they help each other out, great spirit and good vibe, cosy setting. There's also a back garden with tables which is perfect for summer nights.More

Always love the pizzas. We buy regularly. We often get takeaway as the restaurant fills up and gets a little noisy.
