At Italian Kitchen in Tokai you can enjoy traditional Italian fare with a South African edge. If a restaurant is to allow the simple flavours and textures of fine Italian cookery shine through, you’d only want to go for seasonal, local produce.

In abiding by this rule, Italian Kitchen’s trattoria and café has created dishes that are recognisably Italian, but that use ingredients sourced from the local region. It’s also got the capacity to host 100-strong private dining events! Bellissimo.


Expect Italian food with a South African twist. We are known for our Wild Porcini Mushroom Risotto and pasta dishes. Our slow roasted Ham Hocks and Pork Neck are left in an open wood oven to fall off the bone. Every meal is carefully prepared for you to experience true flavour.


We have an irresistible selection of wines for connoisseurs and wine lovers alike. With so many varieties you’ll have to come back to try them all!


Italian Kitchen is available for all your catering requirements whether it is a big or small group, in your home or ours! Just like the Italian Mama – our chefs will cater to your every need! Italian Kitchen provides a 14 seat Private Dining Room for Private Functions, Business Lunch/Meetings, Dinner parties or Kiddies “make your own bambino pizza” Lunch Parties. An outside patio is available for smoking.

Our Place

Italian Kitchen is a family Trattoria. Our dishes are made to satisfy even the pickiest family member. We also love to have children around, as long as mom and dad keep an eye on them from about 7pm when more grown-ups are enjoying their dinner at our restaurant.
