Casa Labia is the original home of Prince Natale Labia, the first Italian Ambassador to South Africa. He was as passionate about his homeland, Italy, as he was about South Africa, the country of his wife and children. They at Casa Labia Café have combined the best of Italy’s cuisine with the best of South Africa’s produce and passion…

The concept was born from a collaboration between Antonia Labia Hardres-Williams (Director – Casa Labia) and well-known Capetonian foodie Judy Badenhorst. Judy works closely with the café, changing the menus seasonally and using fresh, organic produce, some even from Clyfford’s vegetable garden at Casa Labia.

Casa Labia Café is committed to sustainable business practices, quality organic meat, fresh seasonal fruit and vegetables, home-baked bread and cakes, and to providing visitors with an inspiring experience. Growing on the slopes behind the house are a small vineyard and olive grove, the fruit of which they look forward to sharing with you soon.

They invite you to relax and enjoy and remind you that while they do their best in the kitchen to get your lunch out quickly, sometimes good food is worth a little wait… Many delicious items on the menu will entice your palate. The chefs have prepared various delicacies that satisfy every appetite, from breakfast to dinner.

Casa Labia is an ideal venue for commemorating essential events. Whatever the occasion—a birthday, anniversary, or other significant occasion—the team will be delighted to assist you in making it one to remember. Casa Labia offers a distinctive and opulent experience that is sure to please. Experience this outstanding restaurant’s flair, class, and fantastic setting.
