Since opening the doors in 2014, BOCCA has cemented itself as one of the hottest eateries on Bree Street, Cape Town’s gourmet boulevard. Now, with new owners – not to mention a revamped menu and refreshed décor – BOCCA is buzzing with a new Italian-inspired energy.

After a month of renovation, owners Guido and Adnana Brambilla, welcomes Capetonians and tourists to a new style of urban Italian cuisine, tapping into a global trend of upscale eateries offering a refined yet relaxed dining experience.

A striking décor revamp has added a more modern flair to BOCCA, from the motif of shimmering green tiles to a striking signature wall drawing the eye upstairs. Here new leather banquettes have softened the mezzanine space; adding a layer of contemporary comfort, while counter seating allows couples and solo diners to admire the bustling kitchen below. On the street side terrace, communal counter seating similarly faces the kitchen, contributing a sense of lively informality to the space.

Alongside the bustling kitchen is the vibrant bar area where, inspired by the Milanese tradition of Aperitivo, locals and tourists can stop by for signature cocktails, craft beer, or a glass of wine from the curated selection of local boutique estates.

From delectable small plates to unforgettable pizzette, there’s plenty to please the mouth at BOCCA this summer.

BOCCA is open for lunch and dinner from Monday to Saturday from noon until 22h00. Please note that last orders are taken at 21h30.

BOCCA is situated at The Block, corner of Bree St & Wale Street, Cape Town City Centre
