Chef Giorgio Nava brings his flair for authentic Italian fare to the Cape winelands. A showcase for fine ingredients from both his native Italian and adopted South African home, the menu offers a condensed selection of signature dishes beloved by local fans. Start with a classic insalata Caprese, made with real burrata cheese, anchovies and Italian tomatoes – dressed with one of Morgenster’s renowned olive oils. Who could pass up on homemade ravioli, pillows of pasta stuffed with slow-baked Karoo lamb and enhanced with sage butter, another of Giorgio’s legendary creations? Inspired by his Carne restaurants, free-range, grass-fed beef, lamb and pork are the highlights of the meaty mains – from popular seared liver with balsamic caramelised onions to slow-cooked pork belly with salsa Verde and celeriac puree. The mains are as tender as the flavours are big and robust, with a savoury twist in zesty caper, fennel and citrus sauces, all served in generous portions. There are salad and pasta choices for vegetarians – with delicious line-fish for pescatorians. Leave space for real Italian desserts – seasonal gelato, sorbet or meringue served in decadent Marsala Zabaglione crème.
A good selection of Morgenster’s own acclaimed wines made on the farm from Italian and French varieties – as well as other estates.
Attentive and on-the-ball with a charming winelands touch.
Laidback and casual with an airy and light terrace and interior with wonderful farm views.
A leisurely winelands lunch over a feast of Authentic Italian fare.
