Bellagio in Illovo is Johannesburg’s number one hidden gem restaurant

I hadn’t been to Bellagio in Illovo for ages it may as well have been my first visit. Two Friday’s ago, we were invited by Louise herself to come enjoy a lunch here. I can kick myself now when I think of why haven’t we eaten at Bellagio in forever. It is a restaurant for a casual day time lunch, a romantic dinner or even for a special occasion. Now when I try think of where to go for these affairs, Bellagio is at the very top of the list.

Bellagio is a Mediterranean restaurant specializing in seafood. This restaurant definitely deserves to be on everyone’s favourite’s list. It is very hard to find a restaurant that serves fantastic food, with exceptional service, understated elegance, timeless decor and boasts a great wine list.

the food

The menu is simple and seasonal. It focuses on the best quality and definitely caters for everyone. From delicious salads, fresh fish, seafood and sushi, to pasta dishes and even soufflรฉs.

We sampled a selection of smaller plate versions off the menu and we loved every dish and their flavour combinations.

Here is a look at our incredible dining experience:

BELLAGIO CHICKEN LIVERS WITH CRUSTY CIABATTA BREAD
MUSSELS WITH WHITE WINE, TOMATO AND HERBS
TUNA TARTARE WITH CAVIAR, CAPERS, ONIONS AND CORIANDER
MARINATED ROASTED PRAWNS WITH A CREAMY FETA, CHIVE AND GARLIC SAUCE SERVED WITH CRUSTY CIABATTA
LINGUINE WITH LOBSTER, TOMATO, CREAM AND SHERRY
SEAFOOD RISOTTO WITH CLAMS, MUSSELS, CALAMARI AND PRAWNS
LAST BUT NOT LEAST, BERRY AND PISTACHIO MILLE-FEUILLE

So as you can see, Bellagio in Illovo is a real hidden gem. The food is of the highest quality with so much flavour and flair. I cannot wait to return for more!
