Little About Us

“A Culinary Legacy.”

Once upon a time,

three cousins from Romagna, Italy found themselves living in Cape Town, South Africa. They were disappointed with the lack of authentic Italian food and missed the dishes they grew up with. So, they decided to open a restaurant, The Cousins Trattoria, where they could share their love for authentic Italian cuisine.

Simone, Andrea, and Luca take pride in their craft, and they make fresh pasta every morning using natural ingredients.

To complement the food, they serve the best Italian wine. The warm ambiance and attention to detail make dining at The Cousins Trattoria a sensory delight. Join the cousins and indulge in the flavors of Italy.

Buon Appetito!
