95 Keerom

Occupying a suave-looking townhouse tucked away deep in the city, 95 Keerom, a popular Italian restaurant, is amongst the most reliable places to eat in Cape Town, or indeed in the country, if you’re looking for classic Italian cuisine. Milanese owner Giorgio Nava, from whom you can usually expect a personal visit to enquire into your comfort, not only believes in simple sophistication (evident in the pared down glamour of the interiors; downstairs décor consists almost exclusively of a single, scene-stealing indoors olive tree) but goes all the way to ensuring the success of his dishes by growing and catching many of his own ingredients. On offer are Nava’s legendary carpaccio dishes, ultra-authentic pastas, and always a nod to local tastes in the form of some kind of game meat, treated in the Italian way-just a dash of oil with suitable herbs. Like the stark, striking interior of the restaurant itself, nothing on the plate is too complicated, and regulars take comfort in the consistency of what’s served: a menu that never, ever seems to change, at affordable prices that remain relatively stable despite its overwhelming popularity.
