Background on Col’Cacchio Pizzeria
In 1992 the very first Col’Cacchio Pizzeria was opened in Foreshore, Cape Town, offering delectable gourmet artisanal wood-fired pizzas, sumptuous pasta, and gourmet salads. The vision was to build a restaurant that would serve the most mouthwatering Italian inspired meals made with love and the finest, freshest ingredients. It wasn’t long before the Col’Cacchio magic spread and captured the taste buds of South Africans.
The key to Col’Cacchio growth is their commitment to maintaining the high level of quality artisanal food that made our first restaurant such a success, keeping up with trends and innovations, maintaining a hands-on, can-do approach, and our pure unadulterated passion for all things pizza!
Today, 29 years later, the group has branches in RSA and Namibia, with further restaurants set to launch in Mauritius and Africa in 2022.
