Tredici – there's more to a name
Tredici is the Italian way of saying Baker’s Dozen – a belief dating back to the 13th century. Way back then bakers would illustrate their honesty by always offering their customers more than the law required, and never less. So, instead of 12 loaves in a dozen, customers would receive 13, and when purchasing only 12 measures, 13 would be given. It is this commitment to always offer more than you’d expect, that inspires everything we do here at Tredici.
The story of Tredici is the story of sumptuous simplicity. A story reflecting the philosophy of more is better - whilst still striking a balance with homely, artisan baking, where produce is fresh, local and prepared with passion. From the moment you walk through our imposing 4-meter high doors, to the minute you savour one of our delectable dishes, you will experience sumptuous simplicity.
It is reflected in our architecture and interior, inspired by local Cape Dutch elements and combined with the best of chic French and warm Italian styles to create the perfect backdrop for you to enjoy our freshly prepared, handmade delicacies. Sumptuous simplicity is also evident in our menu – from quick bites prepared with love and attention, to a delicatessen stocked with baked goods that took as long as 36 hours to prepare, to our restaurant offering the best European cuisine personalized with African flair.
So whether you stop off to stretch your legs and stock up on delicious padkos for your onward journey, join us for dinner with friends or book our venue for your special occasion or conference, you can be sure to experience the Tredici way of life, where generosity is guaranteed and smiles are genuine.
