Al Firenze has been a local favorite since 1990, in the heart of La Lucia. Savor freshly made, incredibly affordable Italian-inspired dishes and get a flavor of authentic Italy in a laid-back, friendly atmosphere. The interior design is modest but lovely, with hardwood tables and chairs providing warmth. Prices are fair, with mains starting at R200 or more.

Al Firenze is a hidden gem worth finding; it’s situated in the center of Umhlanga. One of the unique characteristics is the outdoor seating, which is ideal for hot summer evenings. The beef ravioli, Hawaiian pizza, and seafood spaghetti are a few of the menu’s best items.

Tossed in a thick tomato sauce, the seafood pasta has a delectable blend of fresh prawns, calamari, and mussels. Porcini mushrooms give a traditional dish like beef ravioli a gourmet touch. Pizza lovers will love Hawaiian, a crunchy, wood-fired dough topped with luscious pineapple and ham.

Al Firenze serves delicious meals and beautiful beverages like the traditional Negroni and the reviving Aperol Spritz. Coke, Sprite, and Fanta are among the soft drink options; a selection of Italian and South African reds and white wines are available on the wine list. Al Firenze is a place for anyone seeking real Italian food in a casual, friendly setting.
