Casa Bella is an upmarket restaurant brand that seamlessly merges a taste of Italian cuisine with a sophisticated yet welcoming dining experience. Meaning “Beautiful Home” in Italian, Casa Bella embodies an elegant space with modern finishes and artisanal style that give it a classy and warm ambience.
The brand was launched in 2016 when Spur Group (Pty) Ltd saw a gap in the market for a trendy Italian restaurant.
Casa Bella is a unique, modern and sophisticated take on a range of Italian classics with an emphasis on the Neapolitan heritage. Pizzas, pastas and grills are beautifully presented and made from the finest quality ingredients that both South Africa and Italy has to offer. The menu fuses Italian heritage with contemporary finesse. The result is one which caters for the discerning palate as well as those who enjoy the good, simple and authentic things in life. As in Italy, fine food must be accompanied by fine wine, and Casa Bella dedicates the same attention and care to the selection of wines as to their ingredients.
