Though it’s a well-known fact that Cape Town swoons visitors from around the world, the Mother City, with her splendid natural beauty, also happens to be a prime place to fall in love.
With trendy eateries, intimate bars and scenic wine estates on every corner and a plethora of fun, innovative activities at every turn, Cape Town is chock-a-block with great options for a memorable romantic rendezvous, whether it’s a first date or a 50th anniversary.
More importantly though, all of the food on the nightly changing menu is made with love.
You won’t find any bastardised pizzas or imitation pastas (think spaghetti bolognaise) on the blackboard; rather, you can expect antipasta platters piled high with imported meats and cheeses, handmade pasta fresca (fresh pasta), homemade Sicilian sausage, Campari cocktails, short espressos and desserts freshly baked according to long-standing family recipes.
So all you and your partner need to do is sit back, relax and enjoy the ride.
– some bragging that when not eating, drinking, singing or watching football, these Europeans are indefinitely making love.
In short, when it comes to a romantic date night dinner, there’s no better choice than a genuine Italian eatery.
And True Italic on Bree Street, a traditional (rustic restaurant) run by a Bologna local and his sister, is as authentic as it gets.
For one, the charming house of pasta makes a home in a 200-year-old building and still uses candlelight to build ambience.
