Lupa opens the first Osteria in Cape Town

Lupa Osteria has opened the doors to its first Cape Town restaurant at the Clock Tower in the V&A Waterfront. This neighbourhood Osteria is well-known for their Porchetta Friday’s (a roll of delicious roasted pork cooked for over 8 hours in a wood fired oven), their own dough room where they make all their own pasta and pizza bases with imported Italian flour as well as their affordable R75 lunch menu.

The casual style restaurant has an inviting bar for cocktails, craft beer and a wide selection of local wines. The artisanal Italian inspired menu has dishes to suit all palettes making it the perfect restaurant for a casual family dinner of pizza and pasta with a carafe of house wine, or dining on shellfish, fresh fish and veal with corporate clients.

“We have a passion for food and we love welcoming guests with our home made Limoncello – it really makes us feel like an authentic Italian Osteria. Our pasta is ‘tutta la nostra pasta e fatta in casa’ which means our pasta is made in house every day”, says owners Marco Zagato and Graham Muller who have been in the restaurant industry for over 20 years.

Lupa’s emphasis on quality, service and hospitality at reasonable prices makes it an exciting addition to the Silo District. Weekly meal specials, daily aperitivo hour from 3-6 pm with specials on cocktails, wines and bar food and a R75 lunch menu ensure that everyone can try their food!

The convenient location makes it ideal for guests to turn Lupa into their favourite neighbourhood restaurant, who also caters for group bookings.
