Description: Bardellis has been serving Italian styled food for 24 years in the suburbs of the Western Cape. The pizzas are described by many locals as the best in the Cape and the restaurant has been awarded best pizza on two occasions by public voting.Its common to hear world travelers regard Bardellis as the best pizza ever eaten. Always rated in the top pizza and the pasta is said to be a yardstick for Italian cuisine by some highly rated foodies. We serve only top quality ingredients, the fillet steak is a good example of the high food quality supplied. A small offering of seafood and meat dishes allows for some variety when in a large group. We also we get excellent feedback on our desserts and have been told that our creme brule is the best. The atmosphere is buzzing with an Italian pizzeria style. on busy nights and season booking is advised as we full up quickly especially if you would like roadside patio seating. Many locals enjoy dining here in windy conditions as the restaurant offers a wind free smoking courtyard and a covered patio. The courtyard and individual rooms make group bookings a perfect venue.

It was a mid afternoon on New Year's day and not many places were open. Bardelli's thankfully was. Their service and their food were very good. The focaccio starter was excellent and the main course of chicken lasagne was perfect too. Lovely place.

My wife and I popped into Bardelli's on a breezy Cape Town evening. Seating wasn't a problem and service prompt (although having an ice-bucket on the floor, under the table for wine suggests the layout is a little cramped). I ordered a bolognese, and my wife a margarita pizza - both quite passable in themselves, but only after adding the necessary chilli, garlic and cheese to taste.

I do have a downer on Italian food at restaurants, it rarely rates above home-cooked, and certainly this was no exception. I thought the prices a little on the high side as well considering the portion size.

The building, itself, it gorgeous, so some marks for ambience. Though a little stuffy in the middle of a SA summer.

Pizza bases soft and flat (no puffing of edges ) almost like they were pre-rolled and put in the fridge in the morning. a Very average pizza with high price.

Hi
We do pre bake our bases a few hours before and trim them so we can fill toppings to the edges,this allows us to give value with a full 30cm of toppings.Most pizza bases give far less toppings as a result of puffy and crusty edges. its a personal preference. Im sorry to hear that you never enjoyed your pizza but Im sure you would have noticed the extra and high quality toppings.
