Dolci Café strives to provide our customers with the freshest of products combined into simple but extraordinary Italian food. We combine tried and tested traditional methods with modern trends in the food industry to bring you concentrated simplicity.
Dolci Café was started by husband and wife team - Jacqueline Righi-Boyd and Clayton Boyd. It opened its doors on the 5th of September 2015 as a small Pasticceria and Café serving pastries, breakfast and lunch.
Customers loved the experience so much that a wider variety of offerings was soon in demand. In March 2017, Zoran Mijailovic joined the team and dinners were added to the Dolci menu. The new dishes were so well received that the restaurant had to expand twice in the following year. With the expansion of Dolci Café, Luciana Righi (Jackie’s mom) and chef of many well-known restaurants around Johannesburg such as Tre Nonni, Assaggi and Amarcord, joined the team.
Since April 2018 Jackie and Luciana have brought a combination of trendy and traditional Italian dishes to the Dolci Café Menu including the new addition of pizza in late 2019.
In October 2019 Dolci Bar and Pizzeria opened as an extension of the Dolci Café. Creating Northern Italian style thin-crust pizzas and presenting a New York-style bar environment, Dolci Bar and Pizzeria welcomes all who wish to dine in a casual bar environment or those who want to meet with friends in the neighbourhood to have a cocktail or Mad Giant beer to end the busy week.
