Col’Cacchio’s Birthday specials - discountsJANE MAYNE

I love Col’Cacchio’s catchphrase on the pic on their landing web page – “We apologise for the mouth-watering distraction!”

One look at their extensive, just-launched new summer menu and you get the picture that the pizza chain is going all out in celebration of their 25th birthday this November.

The popular Italian-inspired franchise, known for its gourmet thin-base wood-fired pizzas, hearty pasta and crisp fresh salads, is celebrating their milestone with a fabulous pizza and cocktail special.

Margherita pizzas for R25

They’re turning back the clock to their foundation year of 1992, when their pizzas sold for R25, and now every Tuesday in November they’re selling their Margherita pizzas for R25, and Margarita cocktails for R25. There are plenty of other delicious specials and those not able to make it to a restaurant can obviously still indulge from the comfort of their couch via delivery.

Tasty newcomers on the menu

Informed waitron Eugene Makumbe at their Westlake branch expands on the new additions to the menu: first up, Col’Cacchio didn’t serve breakfast before, but now there’re ‘build your own’ egg-oriented options, plus filled croissants until 12pm. The Starters menu has two newcomers, plus the Gourmet Salad section has two new features – the Giardino (lettuce, spinach, rocket, zucchetti, broccoli, avo, egg, sesame seeds, truffle yuzu dressing) and the Sorrento (lettuce, roasted butternut, roasted red pepper, grilled baby marrow, pumpkin seeds, basil, spicy, seed brittle, sweet potato strings, ranch dressing).

Steak was never an option here before, but now carnivores can select this from the Main menu. The eatery has always been at the forefront of dietary trends, and their offering now also includes gluten-free and vegan alternatives, as well as the low calorie Foro range of pizzas. And don’t forget their Banting offer.

The Bambini Kids section has a cheesy new option, plus pizza lovers can now opt for a vegetarian Zucca pizza (vegan cheese, butternut and tomato base, roasted butternut, roasted beetroot, rocket, avo, sesame seeds, pumpkin and sunflower seeds).

And of course, there’s dessert – a new highlight here includes citrus pancakes (pancakes with fresh orange segments, orange sauce, vanilla ice cream).
