Welcome to our home. The heart of North Italian cooking in South Africa.

You’ll find unexpected tastes in the familiar – hints of France, Germany, Austria and Switzerland in our North Italian dishes. Simple dishes made with fresh ingredients. The results are extraordinarily elegant. Home is where our story begins and ends. Life takes you unexpected places, love brings you home.

Our home is made from the tastes and smells of our travels. This tapestry of taste, these memories, we carry them in our heart and offer them to you – in this moment.

Enjoy the moment. Italian food, but not like you expect it.

    My wife and I visited La Pergola at 44 Stanley this afternoon. Upon arrival the manager, Makhosi Moyo, made us feel very unwelcome. First he visibly ignored my wife when she tried to get his attention. Then when she went up to him to ask to be seated, he was immediately brusque, rude and bullying. She innocently asked him where the restrooms were and his response was so gruff and dismissive, he could have adopted that tone to a stray dog that had wandered into his yard. When she asked him if he served mimosas and whether they had a liquor licence (to ascertain if they served alcoholic drinks at all), Mr Moyo became incredibly irritated and berated her for asking “ so many questions”. We then decided to leave. When we asked for the owners contact details so we could complain to him or her directly, Mr Moyo refused to give us the details. He also berated a staff member to whom we asked for the owner’s details, for attempting to help us. The food was probably great - a couple we chatted with briefly on entering the restaurant had said as much - but the manager’s behavior was deplorable and completely unacceptable. He really shouldn’t be working in the hospitality industry with such an offensive attitude.

    The food was delicious, and everything looked and tasted wonderful. The restaurant and location is really beautiful. The service was great and attentive. It is a little on the expensive side, but still great.

    Dear Pergola team, what a delightful evening we had!!! THANK YOU, we will definitely visit again! This is truly a little gem of a restaurant!!! It’s beautifully decorated, intimate and Nathi was the best host ever!!!! It was a family birthday and we were 9 people of which 4 were teens and the food choices was simple and easy to make for all of us. It caters for all tastes! The anti pasta menu for a late afternoon drink I think will be bliss. It was beautiful to watch the pizza chef carry on building his gourmet pizzas… and the pizza’s are fantastic. They also provide gluten free bases. From the starters to the desserts, all portions are perfect in size and taste! The presentation of the food were beautiful. My kids loved the little starter portion breads, fresh and warm from the oven. We ate over the entire spectrum of the menu. Special THANKS for the delicious complimentary birthday surprise and birthday wishes from Nathi and the staff! Special mention Nathi who manage to organise a special drink for my mom and thoughtfully phoned me after I forgot a bag in the restaurant, waiting outside for me to collect in the road. So thumbs up to this delight Italian restaurant!!!!
