Your Italian Restaurant in Cape Town

The Cousins Trattoria was an idea created by Andrea, Simone and Luca who wanted to bring their knowledge and passion for food to Cape Town.

These cousins from Romagna, on the Adriatic coast of Italy, have lived in (and loved) Cape Town for many years, but felt there was not a place in the city where they could find the simple, authentic Italian food they had grown up with, in their homeland.

So joining their skills, they opened The Cousins Trattoria, where Andrea makes fresh pasta every morning, using only fresh and natural ingredients, just like Mama does! Bread and tiramisu are baked daily; great coffee and a passion for service makes this easy going place a heaven
for the senses.

Buon Appetito!!!

    The chef prepared an excellent meal! Whilst I am somewhat familiar with the so called Italian temperament, I certainly did not appreciate being yelled at (yes I was actually yelled at!) for a mistake made by the hostess…in front of all patrons…no excuses for such disgusting behaviour …he later apologised in hush times of course because God forbid someone should hear that!!! further more the “Italian cousin “ continually shouts at and insults his waitrons for all to bear witness to. The waiters certainly did their very best. Well done to the Cousins chef but absolutely disgraceful behaviour from the other cousin.

    This was the best experience we as a family had and that goes for everything, from entering the restaurant, food preparation, the friendly and knowledgeable, well spoken waiter up till we left. Fabulous evening. The Le Roux’s
