Family-run Italian restaurant, Papino's, situated in the heart of Hout Bay, is all about good, traditional Italian dishes with a contemporary twist. The ochre walls, reminiscent of a Tuscan landscape, and romantic, almost sultry atmosphere with owner Tanya's personal attention to detail, make this restaurant a favourite with both locals and tourists.
The restaurant source only the freshest and highest quality ingredients and presenting food in a honest and inviting way is part of the restaurant's philosophy. Providing a causal warmth and soothing ambience ensure diners to return time and again. The extensive menu features a mouth-watering selection of wood fired pizzas, fresh fish straight from the harbour, juicy grills and delectable desserts.
Favourite pizzas include the Grantling with avocado, bacon, mushrooms and garlic or the aptly named Tuscany vegetarian pizza with artichokes, capers, mushrooms and fresh basil pesto. For something with a little more meat on the bone, try the Hollandse Biefstuk with mushrooms flambéed in brandy. Remember to leave some space for the Warm Cherries ‘Piemont’, Papino's most popular dessert. The cherries are served in a spicy red wine sauce with vanilla ice cream.
Children are most welcome at this family restaurant and are even given their own dough to make their own creations which are later cooked in the pizza oven. The ritual of coming together, sharing wine and food with family and friends is at the heart of this establishment, as they welcome old and new to come and join them in celebrating the simple pleasures in life. re subject to availability.
