The Mazzone family, owners of award winning Ritrovo Ristorante, come from a long line of artisanal Italian Ice cream producers. As a child, Giovanni Senior worked in the family gelateria which formed part of the family establishment ,’Bar Fortunato’ in Pietrastornina, Italy. With this unique family history, Giovanni and Fortunato Mazzone decided to pursue a dream ...
Young South African chef Gavin Van Zyl, who fell in love with Italy during two years in Rome, joined the team as a junior partner in June 2007. He proved to be so passionate about the BICCCS vision that he became a natural choice as a collaborator in expanding the Brand. The unique name BICCCS stands for "Bread, Ice-cream, Cake, Croissant, Coffee and Sandwich".
We love that BICCCS is a self-confessed óut-of-the-box’ experience. BICCCS doesn’t want to be mainstream – they cater for the discerning hedonist who knows and appreciates quality and integrity. Their Cape Town branch can be found at the Cape Quarter Piazza on Somerset Rd, De Waterkant, recognisable by its colourful decor. An even newer store in Franschhoek, is just as popular as their other branches because they are run by passionate chefs who understand the BICCCS philosophy of quality and a hands-on approach.
The Waterkloof Heights branch in Pretoria East is as excellent as the other branches, and is the symbiotic union of a traditional Italian Gelateria, a bakery, patisserie and a comfortable and contemporary coffee bar. All the stores are small and chic with comfortable sofas, comfortable outdoor seating and Italian chairs. BICCCS offers the finest Italian ice cream in South Africa made in front of your eyes in beautiful 1950’s vintage Carpigiani ice cream machines. Enjoy feather-light, melt-in-your-mouth pastries, warm breads straight from the oven, rich and delicious coffee, all in an un-hurried Italian-style setting, where you can take the time to appreciate the quality and passion placed in every cornetti, every bread and every scoop of unforgettable homemade ice-cream.
