Chef Restaurant Cape Town

Pareti opened Chef in 2002, with just five tables and a set daily menu. He’s expanded
next door and can now seat about 40 diners, choosing from an a la carte menu,
but the feeling of having been invited into an Italian home persists.

Our handsome Italian chef, Nicolai Pareti, who hails from Rimini in the Emilia Romagna region of Italy

We love Chef Nicolai Giuseppe Pareti’s minestrone soup at Bice.

We love Chef Nicolai Giuseppe Pareti’s minestrone soup at Bice. It’s the perfect antidote to a cold winter day! This fabulous eatery is inspired by one of the world’s most famous restaurants, which was opened 83 years ago in Milan by Beatrice ‘Bice’ Ruggeri.
