This is a fantastic Italian Restaurant in Kenilworth, Cape Town. The decor is not great but the food is wonderful at affordable prices and one can take their own wine at no corkage charge. Great for kids as wel.

While trying to find this hidden-away gem, we walked passed it at least twice! While deceptively nondescript from the outside, Burrosos' food is far from ordinary or forgettable!

One of the best Pizzas I have ever eaten. The place itself is tucked away in Kenilworth but on a Wednesday night was very busy. The staff are all very friendly and although the food was not quick it was well worth the wait. The...More

I regularly went to Borrusos about 12 years ago when I lived in the area (early 2000's). All the good things about it haven't changed - the same owner, the same warm friendly greeting (maybe even in the same dungarees), the tables are still scattered...More
