We strive to present an authentic Italian table – where families share and enjoy each other’s company – while digging in to healthy and organic antipasti, as well as bowls of pasta, beautiful fresh salads and grills – using venison and locally sourced meats to complement the best Italian products when possible.
Ferdi is always looking to source the very best ingredients for all of our dishes. All our ingredients are sourced from producers – both in Italy and around the world – who provide quality and use sustainable methods of production. Our staff are trained to have a thorough knowledge of all the dishes we serve. We teach them the origin of each dish, how the dishes have been created and cooked, and the personalities and stories behind them all. We even use local suppliers of produce in Chartwell that use organic and free range methods.
Ghidoli’s is a neighbourhood restaurant, accessible to residents in the greater Fourways area, located in the Broadacres Shopping Centre. As a family restaurant our aim is to create a relaxed and informal environment, so that the culinary experience is always optimised for enjoyment at an unhurried tempo – the Italian way !
Ferdi is always experimenting with new menu ingredients and working on developing the menu – with simplicity and quality at the heart of everything he does. Please come and enjoy the authentic Italian food experience!!!
Ghidoli was founded by Fernando “Ferdi” Ghidoli, using his vast experience in Italian cooking and running restaurants in South Africa. Ferdi’s mentor was his mother Gemma Ghidoli who taught him and his brothers everything about the authentic Tuscan style of cooking.
