Serendipity lead me to a super pizza find. Walking back to the Southern Sun Waterfront hotel in Cape Town, I saw an Italian restaurant a called Col'Caccio. Only a couple of minutes walk away from the hotel and with a free night, I decided to give it go. The restaurant was packed on a Saturday night and I did not have a reservation, but the manager worked out a small table for one right away.
The Good: An excellent beef carpaccio to start.
The Bad: The service was less than so-so as the server was inattentive and slow.
The Great: The best thin-crust pizza I have ever had. Thin and crisp, but not burned or soggy with an abundance of fresh veggies.
I had the Ortigiano Foro which comes with Olives, Artichokes, Asparagus, Green Pepper, Mushroom and minimalist amount of cheese and tomato sauce. What a delight as you could pick up each piece and it would not bend or fall apart. Foro means "hole" in Italian and the pizza comes with a hole in the center filled with a well-dressed and tasty salad. This also means that you don't overeat but still have a great pizza experience. Who says there is no innovation in Italian food?
A nice chocolate brownie and cappuccino for dessert helped cap off the night. I found out later when in Pretoria that Co'Cacchio is a pizza chain all over South Africa. I can't judge their other pasta dishes, but can say that if you are looking for a to-die-for thin crust pizza, try a Pizza Foro at Col'Cacchio.
