Watch the world go by—gently

Parma ham Caprese with garlic focaccia










Forneria Italia has a long been a favourite family restaurant in the Tableview area always offering the best Italian food at good prices using the very best ingredients. The pasta dishes include fabulous lasagne, meat and vegetable, and 28 different pasta sauces including one with smoked salmon and capers—absolute heaven. Over 50 pizzas with just about any kind of topping you can think of ranging from prawns to Springbok biltong done 3 ways, all done in their venerable oven. Start off with a great caprese dish with real Parma ham, bocconcini balls and tomato slices with pesto and a focaccia, crisp and garlicky—wonderful. If you can’t find something here you like you aren’t trying hard enough—better go home and have baked beans on toast.  If piazza or pasta doesn’t grab you try the fillet steak offerings with great sauces or the Italian burger. The wine list is a little this a little that —even some Italian to keep you happy. Finish up with some of their spectacular homemade pastries and go home feeling you have done something really special.

They also have a branch in Melkbos and now one in Blouberg Road near the beach—all run by the same family with the same great food.
