About Cucina di Giovanni Waterstone

While Cucina di Giovanni celebrates Mediterranean cuisine, it is far more than the average pizza-and-pasta joint. It is known for its top-notch service, fresh ingredients, novel approach to food, and a setting that is little above the cut. This restaurant is ideal for special occasions, corporate functions, or simple meals with the family.

The Waterstone branch is situated in Waterstone Village in Somerset West. This is a little over half an hour’s drive from Cape Town’s city centre and about 25 minutes from the international airport. Despite its convenient locale, this restaurant is surrounded by the Hottentots Holland Mountains, False Bay and the verdant loveliness of the Cape Winelands.

Starters include chicken livers in a Napoli and onion sauce, mushroom kebabs, beetroot carpaccio, and snails served on bone marrow. The mains menu is extensive; with salads, pastas, pizzas, red meat, fish and chicken options. Try the Manny’s pizza with mozzarella, gorgonzola, chorizo and chilli; or the rainbow ravioli (stuffed with pumpkin, beetroot, and peas and served with a white wine, gorgonzola and cream sauce). The mixed seafood risotto, veal medallions in a cream and mushroom sauce, slow-cooked oxtail, and grilled fillet are all musts for hungry diners visiting this part of the Western Cape.

Foodies visiting Somerset West will also likely want to sample some of the world-renowned wines of the region. Go for wine tastings and tours at the Avontuur, Flagstone, Blaauwklippen, and Dellrust wine estates as the perfect complement to your dining experience at Cucina di Giovani.
