An Authentic Italian Restaurant in the
heart of cape town

Authentic Italian Cuisine

Liguria Ristorante is an Italian restaurant in the heart of Cape Town. We offer delicious, authentic Italian cuisine specifically from the North West coastal region of Italy, an area known as Liguria. Fresh, locally sourced ingredients are a staple of this region and of our restaurant too. Our daily handmade pesto is made according to the original Genoese recipe and is one of the many highlights in the authentic Italian dishes we serve.

The restaurant is run by Sholton Antonio Brenna who grew up in Liguria in a seaside village called Monterosso Al Mare. The family is from the region and they all share a very proud history of being involved in the hospitality business dating back many generations. Keagan is the restaurant manager and will make sure your experience at Liguria Ristorante will be one of delicious, authentic tasting Italian food backed up by top-class service.

We offer pizzas, pasta, seafood and steak all prepared in a traditional manner and have a fully stocked bar to compliment all tastes.

Unfortunately, we found this place on our last night in Cape Town. Better late than never. We were looked after royally by Keagan, who couldn’t have been more helpful. The quality of the service and of the food could not have been better. Would highly recommend 👌

My pictures do this food no justice but WOW! The gnocchi is enough to mend a broken heart! Fluffy, light and clearly lovingly hand-made, tastes like a hug… Also the pizza my partner had, the only pizza I’ve had that doesn’t make you bloat! Liguria is an absolute hidden gem <3 Keegan, the manager was perfectly attentive and professional, super cool experience! 🙂

A delicious slice of the Portofino in Cape Town! We had 2 amazing pasta dishes at Liguria, as recommended by our server Keagan, who was so helpful. Their signature spaghetti pesca di monterosso and the penne Genoa arribiata were both perfectly aldente and packed with divine flavors. It brought me right back to dining al fresca seaside in Portofino, I highly recommend it!
