Owners description

Balducci at the V&A Waterfront offers an unrivaled menu of simple, everyday home cooked Italian dishes that reflect the most traditional elements of food and culinary styles.

At Balducci, they are passionate about everything they do, from food to service to décor and design. They only use the freshest ingredients, serve generous portions and strive to maintain consistency in their recipes. Their menu is varied and creative, catering for all tastes, to ensure that their guests are always spoilt for choice. And of course, they are fortunate to have such a stunning location in the vibrant heart of the V&A Waterfront, with great views of the harbour and the iconic Table Mountain.

At Balducci the food is based on the essentially Italian notion that the best food is found at home. Over 21 years Balducci have created a home - warm, welcoming and relaxed with a focus on freshness, simplicity, consistency and flavour - their pleasure being the joy of family and friends who love what they do and keep coming back for more.

Balducci’s friends return time and time again just to share Balducci’s Antipasti Platter or eat a plate of the famous Balducci Pasta—a classic dish of pasta turned in a light Parmigiano cream with sundried tomatoes, olives, chilli, and garlic. Or they stop by for the popular Dalla Griglia Smoked BBQ Pork Ribs or A-Grade Grainfed Beef supplied by sister restaurant Belthazar’s master butcher.

  • We went for lunch - taking advantage of their special offer. Food was ok - smaller portions than last year. My pizza was lovely though.

  • Best steak that I have tasted in Cape Town thus far. Their service is impeccable and you get value for your money. There is a perfect balance between every day eatery and fine dining.
