This is an authentic Italian restaurant situated in a vintage setting in Umhlanga Rocks, Durban. Serving authentic dishes with lots of traditional Italian flavours, paired with good Italian wine, Old Town Italy is absolutely a place worth visiting for all 'foodies'.

Great spot to relax and enjoy some shopping for italian goodies as well as enjoying some seriously good food. We had the giardino pizza which was filling enough for 2 people and a great amount of toppings. Lovely vibe even during lockdown.
Staff are unprofessional and rude.
A beautiful, busy, gorgeous breathe of fresh Italian air. Such a stunning place to unwind and enjoy the gorgeous delicacies of Italy
This is a recent find that has sky rocketed to the top of the list of places I love to go for a bite to eat. If you're mad about a strong cup of coffee, this is worth a pit stop. When the coffee is served strong, I usually deviate from adding milk / foam / cream of any kind - their Americano's are superb.
The menu is extensive - from a wide variety of breakfast options, delicious pasta and out of the box sandwiches to fit your mood. If you've just stopped in for a quick cup of coffee, make sure you stop by their ice cream section on the way out and get a scoop of their incredible Gelato. Their flavours change often, but you can usually expect something on the plainer side and then something more unusual like cherry or watermelon.
Old Town is only open until 4pm, so you'll have to plan your visit for breakfast or lunch. It can also be super packed on the weekends, so if you don't want to wait for a table, pull yourself out of bed to be there when the doors crack open at 7am.
Old Town Italy is a superb extension of the excellent restaurant group of Remo's in Umhlanga Rocks. Our meal was perfect and in spite of pouring rain, (which meant no-one could sit outside), the restaurant was packed, service good and the vibe intoxicating. We will be back often.
