Bardellis - Kloof Street is situated in the old Rosenhof house estate. It is one of the original homes in Cape Town dating back to the early 1700’s. It was used as a hire house in the 1800’s and the first appointed astronomer to the Cape lived in the house and observed from a hut in the garden. In keeping with Bardellis style the restaurant has several rooms with its own unique feel. Bardellis has been cooking quality Italian cuisine in the suburbs since 1992 in the suburbs of Cape Town. This old home is now providing locals and tourists with good value meals.
The restaurant has a street facing balcony with views of Table mountain. Enter the restaurant and feel the warmth of a homely atmosphere. The small room on the left has a fire place which provides a cosy warmth in the winter months. A small bar and deli fill the centre of the restaurant. The various rooms are ideal for booking out for private functions and the courtyard out the back seats up to 30 in a demarcated smoking area. Memorabilia of old Italia, wooden floors and chairs fill the rooms while Italian music plays in the background. You are requested to book so to avoid disappointment and to ensure fast and efficient service.
The food is what makes this restaurant though. Living by their Quality slogan the Bardellis staff are consistently looking for ways to ensure the quality and taste is world class. Imported ingredients and the finest local products are sourced. The menu is comprehensive ranging from traditional Italian starters, fresh salads with calamari and fillet options, a wide range of delicious imported and home-made pasta, award winning pizza’s with well portioned toppings and a small list of traditional and local desserts.
A good and well priced wine list compliments the quality Italian cuisine offering opening price points to the best affordable wines. As is traditional in typical Italian restaurants the wine list is hand-picked by the owner and the best value rather than the cheapest wines are selected for pouring by the glass.
