#HighburyHearsYou – we at Cape Town Etc are passionate about getting local restaurants back and booming in business. As part of our #HighburyHearsYou initiative, we’re dishing out the deets on some incredible restaurants in and around town.

South Africans love the international food scene and if we weren’t so proudly South African, we might very well have been Italian. We share numerous cultural traits with the way Italians do mealtime. Loud, joyful conversation and laughter over free-flowing wine. Hearty food, (don’t spare the cheese) and of course, the romantic glow of candles. Yes, we think we could get used to that.

So, if you haven’t visited Old Town Italy just yet, you’re missing out on the pizza (or pasta, or steak) of your life. And it’s not just that the food is good, the restaurant especially sources all their ingredients from local suppliers of the best and freshest quality. “We take pride in our desire to preserve traditional and regional cuisine that supports local farmers and artisans of the food trade,” the restaurant says on their website.

The food alone keeps us coming back for more, but there is also exquisite entertainment, special offers and even pasta-making classes on different days of the week. See which one tickles your fancy at Old Town Italy Experiences.
