The lack of good authentic, home-made pasta was the motivation for the concept behind Pasta Café. The owner, Tyron Pillay, who hails from Johannesburg, felt there was a definite gap in the market for a store that made fresh pasta daily using only the best ingredients.
“The idea of freshly made pasta is very new to the South African food and take-away industry so we set out to bring the concept of freshly made pasta with a restaurant quality meal that is on-the-go” says Tyron. Everyone has nostalgic memories of their favourite meal their grandmother made. This is exactly what Pasta Café wanted to bring into their menu.
Good authentic rustic Italian fare with a restaurant quality meal that is on-the-go. From this concept, “Just like my Nonna’s was born”. Only the best OO grade flour from Italy is used to create the fresh pasta. Locally sourced seasonal ingredients are used as much as possible to put together the traditional Italian pasta sauces.
Sourcing the best cheese is also vital to give the dishes that great Italian taste. For those with different dietary requirements, gluten free pasta and designing your own pasta dishes are also available. Pasta Café strives to give the customer a delicious meal prepared in front of you in only six minutes. The meal can be taken home or enjoyed at the store at your convenience.
Pasta Café aims to become synonymous throughout South Africa as the home for freshly made pasta. With franchise opportunities available, the expansion of Pasta Café is an exciting reality.
