Picture Aurelias Italian Restaurant in Umhlanga Rocks, Umhlanga, Northern Suburbs (DBN), Durban and Surrounds, KwaZulu Natal, South Africa Aurelias in Umhlanga is the answer to the complaint that Durban seems to go to sleep at 10pm. This sophisticated venue oozes casual charm and provides a space where Durbanites can linger late after a meal to enjoy a bottle of wine in the company of friends and family.

With delicious yet simple fare and a vibey atmosphere, Aurelias provides a modern take on Italian authenticity.
Picture Aurelias Italian Restaurant in Umhlanga Rocks, Umhlanga, Northern Suburbs (DBN), Durban and Surrounds, KwaZulu Natal, South Africa Aurelia’s kitchen is at the command of well-known chef Stephan Crawford. His aim was to keep the menu small and simple, evidenced in the 20 woodfired oven pizzas, 15 pastas, meat dishes and various starters and desserts. Starters include halloumi, mussel cozze white wine, calamari grigliati, carpaccio classic and gamberi prawns. Along with all the traditional pizzas (margherita etc.), there is a speciality pizza menu which includes items such as the ‘Salmone’ – with smoked salmon, mozzarella, creamy mascarpone, capers, red onion and avo.

Pasta options span everything from the traditional favourites like napolitana to the cozze aglio olio (mussels and prawns sautéed in garlic, chili and olive oil). The selection of meat dishes includes rosemary braised lamb shank, spatch cock chicken, line fish and a delicious fillet stuffed with brie and topped with avo. All dishes contain only the finest imported Italian cheeses, cold meats, flours and oils from selected regions of Italy.
