In 2014, what was then the Chocolate Café started as a small project among four friends. Its success soared to the point where you needed a password to get into the bar. They now serve classic cocktails and their own house creations with fresh herbs.

The three creative minds behind this Italian restaurant are Andrea, Simone, and Luca. Their goal was to bring authentic food from their home country to Cape Town, and they've succeeded.

It all began with 16-year-old Charly. He cleaned, washed dishes, and created light pastries. He learned the art of baking from a German master baker and soon opened his own bakery.
