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.

Food
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!

Drinks
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.

Service
The service is hip, attentive and very helpful when it comes to helping you find a suitable wine to pair with your Italian fare.

Ambiance
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.

Best for…
The cosy spot is perfect for winter nights and a gourmet lunch in the summer months.

    You'll always be in the mood for pizza here. Chewy and delicious! Margherita is my favourite. The quality of the ingredients speak for themselves. Service was outstanding. Can highly recommend!
    Have tested 2 other pizza spots before this... head & shoulders the best I've encountered- absolutely superb traditional Italian Neapolitan cuisine!
    Having lived in Italy for 10 years I can vouch that these are the most authentic Italian pizzas in Cape Town! yum.
    The antipasti at Burrata is my go-to comfort dish (followed very closely by the slow cooked short rib rigatoni). Their winelist is comprehensive and Spencer (the manager) is knowledgeable and informative. The service is always top notch. No surprises that this is one of my favourite restaurants in SA.
    Unfortunately we visited on a wintery Monday evening so the restaurant was a bit quite which maybe left a bit to be desired for ambiance, however, the food and service certainly made up for it. The four of us shared a variety of starters followed by a few pizzas and pastas. Everything was delicious, fresh and cooked to perfection. I am a thin crust pizza lover, however the thick soft chewy pizza base that Buratta offers is incredible. Spencer, the manager, made a great wine recommendation and was full of knowledge and understanding of the very interesting wine list that Neil Grant selected. Will definitely return!
