Once again having children with me mostly I have to think of their snack time too and this is a MUST if you need a pit stop to fortify your hungry or peckish kids. Their Gelato is simply out of this world

We came here after work in the rain to try out a new place.no faults to be had with the service or food.calamari tubes and lasagne was good portions and well made.the best thing they have in terms of drinks is their milkshakes which are freshly scooped from the ice cream parlour(from strawberry and cream to toblerone,so much variety).

If you're really hungry - Baglios has a good man sized portion of pasta - go for it ! Otherwise, being on and in the square, has a good vibe and good service. We also tried the focaccia bread starter and cappuccino - was nice.

Probably the best spot on the Nelson Mandela Squire for a drink and some people spotting – but do not waste your time ! The service was shocking, staff sullen and the restaurant floor strewn with paper serviettes, till slips and other rubbish. We decided not to eat as the overpriced drinks took forever to arrive. Even a longer wait... More

I used to eat often at Baglio's when my kids were younger. They went to the library and I had brunch at Baglios then ice cream with them afterwards - this was probably 12 years ago. Nothing has changed - tables, chairs, décor, service. I ordered a roast beef Panini - it was OK, nothing special. Service took forever but... More

This restaurant is perfectly situated for romantic meals and reflection. Being in Nelson Mandela square, gives it a special aura and ambience. However, after being served by 3 different staff members, who could not even manage a smile between them, my husbands meal was luke warm and served on a cold plate which he absolutely hates! My meal was presented... More

The place is nice with nice desert, perfect place to stay at after doing shopping from sandton mall. My only concern that they take soooooo long to serve you or get you the bill. It was really annoying!

Our experience from Baglios was satisfying. We came with groupon's offer: a pizza, a burger and 2 large beers. The pizza was unusual nice for Johannesburg and the burger was also good and nicely served. Only thing that the groupon offer at the end wasn't so much of an offer because the pizza would be R75 and the beer another... More

Waiters are rather stand and talk than serving their customers. Even after you order, still noting happens. The primespot of the location shouldnt be an excuse of bad service.
