There is no need to book that window seat on Alitalia to Rome, Sicily, Venice or Milan – simply explore the authentic flavours of Italy right here on your doorstep in Pretoria. 

For enthusiasts for all things Italian, we have it all and some. Italy is great, but if you don’t have the budget or time to explore Europe, our offerings will leave you spoilt for choice, enjoying great times and brilliant memories to take back home long after the last drop of Italian wine has been savoured with friends and family. 

For that authentic Italian experience, Cremalat is a must. You simply have to savour and incorporate their ingredients into your dishes because no Italian meal is complete without the real deal. Cremalat is all about Italian cheese and a multitude of other products such as cold meats, olive oil, pasta and more. Stop by and grab a bite at the quaint Italian restaurant, shut your eyes and be transported to golden beaches and azure seas of the Med. Cremalat is perhaps one of South Africa’s best kept little secrets with genuine Italian food gracing tables since 1993; a supplier of fine produce that will come to your rescue (and Italian table) to ensure you do your Italian cooking the way it was intended – original, delicious, humble yet sophisticated. 

The Italian Cultural Institute of Pretoria is another noteworthy Italian experience – want to sing opera like an Italian (in Italy) or learn to speak the lingo like an Italian? Apply for a scholarship through the Italian Cultural Institute of Pretoria and learn to sing your heart out or register for the new intake for Italian lessons. Additionally, there are numerous other scholarships offered to culture vultures wanting to further their studies. The Italian Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities and Tourism has pulled out all the stops and supports collaboration of cultural exchange through advanced educational courses that are organised around cultural areas. 

Eat out at The Italian Club in Pretoria where you can enjoy sumptuous dishes and delicious wine shared with excellent company and just sit back and relax. Book your next upcoming event or office function at the Italian Club and get bang for your buck or keep an eye out for any exciting upcoming events such as the Oktoberfest which will take place on Saturday the 19th of October. Enjoy authentic German fare, rugby and a little bit of oom-papa.  

Another Italian must is Bruna’s Italian Apartments. Bruna’s Italian will ensure guests staying over enjoy Italian hospitality at its best. Catch up on some R n R, enjoy the views that stretch forever, or simply lounge around the pool deck reading a good book. Be sure to book a pasta-making class with chef extraordinaire, Bruna, or partake in the numerous activities on offer in and around Pretoria. 

If it is an authentic Italian experience with European hospitality thrown into the fray, cancel that ticket to Italy because you don’t have to go anywhere to experience Italy at its best. We bring you a little flavour of Italy right here in sunny Pretoria.
