From the very few that remain of the 110 Italians that crossed the ocean over 50 years ago in search of adventure on what was then the South African Railways network, and stayed to do their bit in changing the restaurant scene in South Africa, Bernardo Napoli surely is a Pioneer.

The “REAL DEAL” of tradition Italian food, chef Bernardo “Papa” personally makes all his own pasta’s and also provides you with a wood burning oven pizza you will never forget. Inventive and passionate about food he is able to cater for all your requirements and regularly creates special dishes to tantalise your taste buds. “You want – I cook for you – in front of you – no imitation – Capice!”

Packed with atmosphere and bulging with detail in true Trattoria style, you will feel as if you are sitting in Italy in this cosy and intimate restaurant. Soccer shirts & banners, family photo’s, 60 years old newspapers and flags of the world line the walls. Chianti, Grappa and Limoncello bottles hang alongside salami’s, cheeses, garlic’s and hams, which dangle seductively over an open plan stove and wood burning pizza oven.

The aroma of chef Bernardo cooking with the freshest ingredients in front of his customers adds to this unforgettable ambiance and dining experience.

Pioneers of Italian food in South Africa and with over 50 years experience, “La Familia Napoli” are renowned restaurateurs and invite you to come enjoy their love of food, and indulge you in an unforgettable experience in the tradition of Italy.

Open:
Monday to Sunday 11:30 till late

For me this is a beautiful and pleasant Restaurant and as other have mentioned the owner/manager Bernardo is a superb host with great insights into Italian cooking and fascinating tales of the origins of some of the dishes.He is also keen on passing on his skills to his cooking staff a generous quality. Try Napoli-Trattoria for a little Italy flavour in Africa.

I have been there twice in the last week and both times the food was simply outstanding. The last time, on my own, the owner and hands on Italian manager 77yr old Bernardo, invited me to his table, where I ordered what turned out to be probably the most delicious putanesca pasta I've ever had. Bernardo takes pride, the food is authentic Italian, and he barks at his staff all the time to keep it good. Do yourself a favour and look beyond some admittedly shabby decor and don't miss it!
