#LukaLikes…Pane E Vino

Epicurean in the making, Luka van der Merwe is the son of owners, Karine Dequeker and Lloyd van der Merwe. One of their favourite ways to spend time together as a family is trying new restaurants, and eating out in general. From a young age Luke has accompanied his foodie parents to some of the very best restaurants, around the world.

Here are 14-year-old Luka’s thoughts on Pane E Vino in Stellenbosch. Would Luka recommend it to our guests? The answer is an empathic, Yes!

“Pane E Vino is an Italian restaurant in Stellenbosch run by an Italian lady – Elena Dalla Cia – who has made proper Italian cuisine come to South Africa.

My absolute favourites dishes are the Vitello Tonato, which is brilliant (tuna sauce over thin slices of cooked veal) as well as the very authentic lasagne.”
