An Italian-inspired Family Restaurant Bringing You Authentic Italian Cuisine

An Italian-inspired Family Restaurant Bringing You Authentic Italian Cuisine



Tonino was founded in July 2021 by our top chef and owner Antonio who wanted to bring a little bit of Italy to the Benoni area. 

Our food is authentic artisanal Italian cuisine and even if you are not hungry yet, as the Italians say “L’appetito view mangiando” – the appetite comes while you are eating.



Our menu is inspired by the city of Naples with our authentic artisanal Neapolitan pizzas, made with sourdough and firewood baked in our pizza oven, topped with deliciousness. 

Our specialty dishes are what keeps our loyal customers coming back for a dining experience in Italy. A favourite is our Ossobuco, a traditional Italian dish served on polenta. It is definitely a must-have when visiting Tonino Cucina. 



A little slice of Italy right in the heart of your neighbourhood. Transport yourself to the streets of Rome or Florence with the aromas of  freshly baked bread, cured meats, and aged cheeses. The shelves are lined with only the best imported Italian goods.

Our friendly staff are passionate about our products and eager to share their knowledge and love of Italian cuisine with their customers. 



A luxurious and sophisticated space where cigar aficionados can gather, relax, and enjoy  a fine cigar and whiskey. Our cigar lounge features plush couches and leather chairs and with a carefully curated selection of cigars and premium spirits. 

Unwind, socialise and indulge in the finer things in life at Tonino Cigar lounge.



We are all about bringing the family together at Tonino Cucina. We love to see all the smiling faces of our kiddies enjoying their time at our family restaurant. 

Our dedicated kiddies pizza-making station is the perfect way to keep the kiddies entertained. Topped off with our famous Italian Gelato for dessert. Our brand new jungle gym is always a hit!

what our customers are saying

Really good pizza, mostly attributed by the awesome base and ingredients being used, this combined with excellent and warm service, even for takeaway customers. Will go back anytime.
Just the kind of restaurant Benoni needs...the vibe, the people and the food - fabulous. Bon appetite.

I can't find the right words to explain how the food is at Tonino. Oxtail was amazing ! Ribs was amazing ! Lamb and Steak was amazing ! Talk about soft and juicy and an explosion of flavors ! Oh my goodness! We celebrated my Mother and Father in laws Birthdays at Tonino, our table was very beautifully set out with wine etc. Lovely atmosphere. The staff is friendly. I would definitely recommend this restaurant. At the top of my list.

Without a doubt, my absolute favorite restaurant! From the most delicious food, to the friendliest staff, the best management, and the highlight of the night - the birthday celebration. Thank you to all the staff and management for always making us feel apart of the Tonino’s family.

It's a rare find to get a combination of world class service (Christine you are an absolute legend), a great vibe, phenomenal food and attention to detail. This place deserves a 10/10. My new favourite spot!

Antonio, Il cibo era squisito! You cannot begin to comprehend how incredible this food is until you have tried it. Sirloin steak served table side, cooked to perfection. Espetada so incredibly tasty, and again cooked to perfection, zucchini fries complemented this perfectly. My daughter had bolognese which she says is very close to Nonna Angelina’s….praise indeed
