Polpetta was started in 2008 by Roberto Leo and Ivano Franceschi.
After working for a number of years at the well known Luca’s , Roberto and Ivano decided it was time to open their own restaurant and so Polpetta was born in Morningside Sandton.
Polpetta offers no fuss , good quality, value for money Italian comfort food.
It has over the years become a home away from home for many and is a place where “ everybody knows your name “ .
Sadly Roberto passed away in January 2015 leaving Ivano to take the reigns.
In 2018 Philip Groenewold joined the Polpetta family as partner and the business relocated to it’s current location at The Wedge Shopping Centre.
Philip has brought his own personality to the Polpetta family and since joining has become loved by all.
We are ever grateful for the loyal support we have experienced over the last 13 years and are so fortunate to have been able to grow into our new space.
