Century City Italian restaurant
Col'Cacchio is a vibrant, modern take on the traditional Italian kitchen and serves up arguably some of the best Italian food. Originality meets rustic and familiar in this beautifully decorated spot in Canal Walk Shopping Centre.
Start off with an Insalata (salad), and if you think this is a boring option, think again. Ingredients like rocket, roasted beetroot, roasted butternut, feta, crispy onions, pomegranate arils, green yogurt dressing, caramelized pear and loads more combine to form a wide variety of explosive flavours.
The pizzas are woodfired, as pizza should be, and toppings range from the traditional like bacon, onions and mushrooms to the more exotic seven-hour lamb stew. A bambini (kids) menu is also available with some traditional favourites.
The dessert menu does not dissappoint either and offers dishes like chocolate pizza with a choice of toppings, a Lindt chocolate trio, proudly South African malva pudding, white chocolate cheese cake and the old Italian favourite, tiramisu.
This well-priced restaurant will not dissappoint and is a definite recommendation for those who love comfort food with a modern twist.
