My wife and decided to have an afternoon off and wanted to try someplace new for lunch. As usual I turned to TripAdvisor and found an amazing restaurant hidden away behind walls in a garden on Rivonia - Stelle Restaurant. Everything about the restaurant was perfect, from the reception, the service and the food.

My wife started with grilled vegetables and I had the steak tartare with truffle. We moved onto to two freshly made raviolis ( mine was squid ink with salmon while my wife had sage butter and truffle).

The menu selection is extensive and next time we will definitely have one of the risottos,

We were pretty full and we shared a dessert, followed by a coffee and a delicious home made limoncello.

Although it was a little chilly we sat on the garden section because it was beautiful.

Personal interaction and welcome from the owner, and daughter in law, Chantalle really makes one feel welcome.

This family run business is perfect.

A true gem in the heart of Sandton.
Fantastic cuisine, authentic Italian, and although everything on the menu is spectacular, go for their specials, which use super fresh and seasonal ingredients.

What a nice place to have a sunday lunch. Great food in a beautiful garden.
Original italian dishes. We enjoyed sea food dishes fresh and tasty. Great wines and nice ambiance. Trees older than 200 year made a difference in Sandton centre place.Recommended.

Beautiful restaurant in Rivonia right in a park, We had a long Sunday lunch and we enjoyed the great food in a garden full of atmosphere. Calm, relaxed and with a family touch. Food was Italian and wine list was extensive and quality. Ravioli di castagne and salciccia were the highlight and the main courses were really special: we had lamb rack and tagliata with rucola. Great desserts, actually best gelato I ever had in Johannesburg. We will certainly come back also because parking was easy inside the premises and our children could safely play in the guarded park.

Outstanding genuine italian food. Great gnocchi smooth and soft. LAmb and rabbit are our favourite coupled with Barbera wine. Great desserts, special is the Sacher. Intimate and elegant ambiance. Private parking. Not to be missed.
