There’s a reason why Burrata, located inside the Old Biscuit Mill has stood the test of time - it is brilliant. Offering gourmet pizzas, modern Italian cuisine and before you ask, the creamiest, salty and fluffy pillows of burrata.
For a nation that loves pizzas as much as South Africans do it’s a real shame there aren’t nearly as many authentic pizzerias as one would expect. Burrata is not your average trattoria, the Old Biscuit Mill located restaurant with a full modern Italian menu from Antipasti, pizza, pasta mains and dessert puts the zee in pizzazz. Kick off with the fresh selection of antipasti, from cheesy arancini, olives and naturally, burrata cheese to whet your palate.
Although it is the heady aromas from the imported Italian pizza oven churning out perfectly chewy Neapolitan pizzas that will tug at your hunger pangs.
While the pastas are popular, the mains and risotto section is often overlooked but the arborio rice with crispy pork, Granny Smith apple currant vinaigrette is something to be tasted to be believed - a satisfying blend of risotto rice, salty and crunchy pork and the Granny Smith lending the necessary acidity to balance the dish superbly.
Taking up the bulk of the menu, pizzas are the stars here and man are they good. Offering an even split between bianca - no tomato sauce and rosso - with tomato sauce, options I’m yet to order an satisfactory pizza. The whole gamut from the braised and barbequed meat topped options to the grilled and blanched vegetable topped option - this is Italian soul food that will leave you feeling nourished and addicted.
Don’t let the traditionally sounding desert selection fool you, these are not Nona’s recipes - the desserts are modern takes on the classics. Take someone or friends who enjoying sharing because you won’t want to miss the tiramisu, the ginger and apricot semifreddo, with chocolate ginger cremeso and pistachio sable biscuit or the olive oil panna cotta served with naartjie compote and hazelnut crumble - bellissima!
An extensive and exciting wine list that allows one to taste across local, italian and some French wines - just another perk of having a Neil Grant, who is a certified sommelier, for an owner.
The service is hip, attentive and very helpful when it comes to helping you find a suitable wine to pair with your Italian fare.
Simple decor typical of an upscale Italian trattoria. Bare-wooden tables and crisp napkins with signature red stitching. The intimate space is cleverly laid out ensuring it never feels cramped even when at capacity.
The cosy spot is perfect for winter nights and a gourmet lunch in the summer months.
