Trabella's pizzas are the best in town. The standard options can be endlessly customized & their gluten-free bases are fantastic. Owner Tracy makes you feel like the most special person in the restaurant & makes every visit special

I like this place. It's casual and convenient and open on Sunday nights. Service wasn't great tonight though. We waited a long time for our salad and pizza. The pizza was cold. When we asked the waitress to take it back for heating, she asked...More

Trabella is a mature pizza spot , with regular local visitors. It's good for a quick in and out pizza or pasta. The quality is predictable but the service is patchy . Take out's will in fact be the best option.

I have not been there to eat but I do order some pizzas via Uber Eats and absolutely loved their pizzas. Very tasty with thin bases... Awesome!!! Was so disappointed when I wanted to order the other day and it was closed... Will order again...More

Really delicious food serving a wide variety of vegetarian options and catering to many dietary preferences. Unfortunately, there is an extremely abrasive and impatient waitress / manager who regularly hangs up the phone when I try order ahead or who gets visibly frustrated with patrons...More

Nice carpaccio and focaccia to start. Average pizzas, mine had potatoes that tasted like they were fried n very stale oil. The kids liked their pizzas and my mum's pasta looked good. The music was intrusive loud house, so we ate and left.

This place is really let down by the poor and slow service. Our waitress barely smiled whenshe greeted us and was nowhere to be seen when we wanted to order and get the bill. The food though. Wow, don't waste your time with anything else....More

I know that is a tall claim, but owner/operator Tracy has got it right. Now an institution in Greater Johannesburg, Trabella just continues to innovate and anchors a trendy foodie hub on the corner of Oxford and Corlett Drive in Sandton. The pizzas are to...More

Some of best thin crust pizza I've had in Johannesburg. Great flavour, I had the Regina. The setup is eclectic and captures the feel of Illovo. My friend ordered the grilled veal and creamy artichoke sauce, and he was quite pleased with it. So not...More

A month without a pizza from Trabella is a month wasted! The owner, Tracy, also acts as front-of-house and ensures that her staff give excellent service. The restaurant is fully booked most nights, so make a reservation. The wine list is nothing to rave about,...More
