Bacini’s on Kloof: fresh pasta and pizza and a deli
They’re serving up a brand new menu with fresh pasta and fresh produce
A new chef, fresh produce and a modern, stylish interior are what you'll find next time you visit the 30-year-old family-run Italian restaurant, Bacini’s on Kloof.
POP IN FOR A DELICIOUS LUNCH
"We finally came to the realisation that we need to keep up with the ever changing world we live in," Della Napoli, co-owner and manager of Bacini’s, told CapeTownMagazine.com. "We wanted to create a space where customers can pop in for lunch with a friend, pick up some groceries and organic veg for dinner and not have to go out of their way to get quality products as well as delicious food."
SHELVES FULL OF MEDITERRANEAN GOODS
You know food is taken very seriously when the first thing greeting you right out of the gate is their big and beautiful deli fridge. It’s stocked to the brim with fresh produce. Venture a little further in, and you'll find shelves lined with Italian and Mediterranean goods: think cured meats, local and imported Italian cheeses, pickles, preserves, house-marinated olives, coffee beans and jars of sun-dried tomatoes.
NEW CHEF MEANS A NEW MENU
"Chef Eva has been a part of the family since we first met. She is an incredible chef. Her passion for food and people come out so beautifully in the dishes she creates," gushes Napoli. Keep your eye out for Eva's ricotta flapjacks, they're "out of this world" says Napoli, adding that the grilled prawns are also a fresh and flavourful crowd-favourite.
You can't visit an Italian restaurant without trying their pasta, which Bacini's makes fresh every day. Their Spaghetti Bolognese is served with delicious prime minced beef in a rich and herby ragout. Pro tip: pair their Spaghetti Bolognese with a glass of red wine to compliment the flavours.
A NEW DISH EVERY WEEK
Although their popular staple dishes will always be on the menu, chef Eva plans on introducing a new meal every week. "Everything will be seasonal and fresh," Napoli told us. But, if you don't have enough time for a sit-down meal, pop in for a quick visit to their deli at the back.
