Coffee shop and market – Old Town Italy – is about to become your favourite dinner spot too!

From loyal regulars to brand new customers, diners will be delighted to discover that the unique and much-loved Umhlanga Italian eatery, Old Town Italy, is now open for dinner as well.

With its old-world romantic charm and authentic Italian cuisine, Old Town Italy has become a popular dining destination for those looking for a little more than what your typical restaurant has to offer . . .

The launch of their new, contemporary dinner menu (crafted by celebrity chef Jason Whitehead) also brings with it a host of other exciting offerings. These include the Italian aperitivo-style drinks hour from Monday to Friday from 5pm to 7pm, live music during Aperol Acoustic Fridays from 5pm to 8pm, Old Town Jazz on Saturdays from 4pm and ‘Eat.Drink.Italian’ nights on Wednesdays, where main meals include a complimentary Mazzatti Beer or glass of Terra del Capo wine. The restaurant will also soon feature a new wrap around deck and will host in-store tastings, monthly pasta classes, wine dinners and bottomless bubbly events!


Old Town Italy is renowned for its high standards, romantic values and simple, slow food. A huge amount of pride is taken to preserve traditional and regional cuisine that supports local farmers and the ecosystem.

The Umhlanga restaurant has become a favourite meeting spot for friends, colleagues and families can come together and enjoy great food and excellent service in a contemporary setting.

The menu is authentically Italian, yet flexible enough to stay up to date with the latest health trends and food movements. They maintain a strong focus on Italian products while also sourcing local products that align with their food philosophy. From authentic Italian dishes, cuts from their butchery and grill section to fresh salads and panini and hand-stretched Neapolitan pizza with real mozzarella, a meal at Old Town Italy is all about #MakingMemories.
