“Not your Mamma's pasta” at this hidden pasta bar

Decadent pastas, fried stewed beef balls, truffle lollipops and more at Scala


Last updated:
19 August 2022

Pasta bars are a trend around the world, including in Cape Town. In collaboration with Michelin star chef Luciano Monosilio, Scala Pasta Bar is bringing the textures and flavours from Rome to Heritage Square.

DINE ON DECADENT PASTA

From Monosilio’s famous Carbonara to truffle pasta lollipops and chicken ragu, it taps into authentic Italian textures and flavours, drawing from Monosilio’s restaurant in Rome. Plus, it makes one banging tiramisu that you have to crack open with a spoon.

All the pasta is made in-house with an imported charcoal oven from Italy. It has an open kitchen, so guests can watch the chefs prepare the food from the comfort of their tables. Scala is set to open on 15 September 2022. Subscribe to our newsletter to find out more about Scala
