About Bella Italia

Bella Italia is conveniently situated just 15km from Cape Town International Airport on the gentle slopes of Table Mountain, overlooking Table Bay and the glittering lights of the peninsula. Located just 5km from the vibrant city centre and bustling night life and 2 minutes from major highways to all the attractions the beautiful Cape Peninsula has to offer.

Bella Italia is Italian owned and run by Luciano and Janice who offer a warm welcome to local and international visitors alike - come and stay awhile and enjoy our hospitality. We also do dinners by arrangement (for groups) and I promise you Luciano`s pasta is something you do not want to miss out on!


Bella Italia's 5 stylish double, en-suite bedrooms have been decorated with our discerning guests in mind and no attention to detail has been overlooked. All our very spacious rooms have wall mounted flat screen TV's with satellite TV, air conditioning and views of the Bay, the Peninsula and Table Mountain. We also have safes, hairdryers and electric blankets in all our rooms. The showers are huge! The rooms also have patios where the views can be enjoyed while drinking a complimentary glass of ice cold white wine.

The indoor barbeque room with bar, fridge and large screen TV, boasts spectacular views of Table Mountain and the bay and is the perfect spot for enjoying your favourite sports broadcasts.

Bella Italia offers secure parking with access via a remote controlled garage door - so you are free to come and go as you please. Your small doggies are also welcome.


Enjoy a sumptuous breakfast in the dining room or on the tranquil terrace overlooking the pool and garden.


Bella Italia is also perfectly situated for the Argus Cycle Tour contestants as we are just a 5 minute (downhill) ride from the start and we are happy to collect our guests from the finish and take them back "home" to recover.

Whether you’re in Cape Town for business or for pleasure, Bella Italia is the perfect place to sit back, put your feet up and relax after a day spent enjoying the innumerable pleasures the Mother City has to offer.
