Septimo is Italian for Seventh. Septimo represents more than just the place where friends and memories are made. Septimo represents the seventh decade of a tradition of preparing family recipes and caring for everyone who takes a seat at our family table. ​ It began 70 years ago when a young Paul returned to Paris after having been a prisoner of war in Germany for nearly 8 years. Despite the effect of the war on his city, he wanted to rebuild his life and his city and began by opening a small bar and bistro in the 15th Arrondissment of Paris near the Citroen factory. His food and humour put smiles on the faces of the countless patrons who crossed his threshold everyday. He ran this bistro, and later one more in Paris, with his life-long sweetheart, Yvonne. Though the war had separated them, fate brought them back together after the war for many years. ​ Paul and Yvonnes daughter, Martine brought her family legacy with her to the United States, where she and her husband, Atanasio, owned and operated a family style Italian restaurant just North of Philadelphia. ​ Now their son, Paul, and his cousin Andreas, are continuing the tradition with the third installment, bringing 70 years of flavours, family, and fun right here to you in the world famous Nelson Mandela Square.

    My aubergine parmigiana was stodgy and tasteless with very little napolitana sauce thus also dry. The restaurant was out of parmesan cheese

    Was out of stock on drinks, meals and desert, even though it was listed on their menu. The waiter took our orders and then returned to inform us that the items are out of stock. This happened at every stage, drinks, meal and desert. A very bad experience.

    Your waitstaff brought me the wrong meal. I ordered the char grilled chicken breasts and received the baby chicken. I didn't send it back or ask for changes because I was with a friend that I would not have a lot of time with and didn't want to waste it. but the meal I was brought instead of the meal I ordered was R30 more expensive and honestly didn't taste all that special.

    Having had dinner for Valentine’s Day I was very disappointed with the food , the truffle Mac and cheese was bland and the mushrooms in the Alfredo were burnt , I’m sad to say that I didn’t enjoy my experience because Septimo used to be one of my favorite restaurants but the last few occasions have proved to be overwhelming average or sub standard. For the price the food should be spectacular , this is a great pitty because the location and ambiance is lovely .
