Your Italian Restaurant in Cape Town
The Cousins Trattoria was an idea created by Andrea, Simone and Luca who wanted to bring their knowledge and passion for food to Cape Town.
These cousins from Romagna, on the Adriatic coast of Italy, have lived in (and loved) Cape Town for many years, but felt there was not a place in the city where they could find the simple, authentic Italian food they had grown up with, in their homeland.
So joining their skills, they opened The Cousins Trattoria, where Andrea makes fresh pasta every morning, using only fresh and natural ingredients, just like Mama does! Bread and tiramisu are baked daily; great coffee and a passion for service makes this easy going place a heaven
for the senses.

This warm and cosy trattoria is a slice of authentic Italian cuisine heaven made simply and with love, telling the story of generations of the proprietors’ way of cooking where they grew up in Romagna, on the Adriatic coast of Italy.
When there’s no foot traffic, how is a restaurant consistently fully booked, night after night for over four years, for both a six- and an eight-o’clock sitting? The answer is pasta – and not just any pasta. This is pasta from the northeastern Emilia-Romagna region, the region that has Bologna as its capital.
If you blink, you’ll miss The Cousins Italian Trattoria, but you won’t get far without smelling the fresh aromas coming from this restaurant in the trendy East City.
