A bite of Italian in Wellington’s Val du Charron

Anyone who knows me knows that I have a major weakness for Italian food. I love making my own pizza – bases included – and can also create a pretty damn good lasagne. Suffice it to say if you invite me out to lunch and it’s round and flat  (just like Earth!), then I am there. A short while ago a good friend of mine invited me out to Wellington for lunch and pizza, or in this case, ‘piza’. Why the odd spelling? Well, I don’t know! Why would Val du Charron, one of the oldest farms in South Africa, have an Italian restaurant too? As an intrepid reporter, I needed to find out. Not because there was piz(z)a on the menu, or beer, or wine, or that said good friend’s boyfriend was driving… Oh no, it was for science!

Andreas Guest House – Luxury Accommodation And Great Shiraz

Last month, The Husband and I headed out to Wellington for a change! I am sad to admit that visiting Wellington is not something we do often as we always thought it to be too far. But, it’s actually less than an hour’s drive from where we stay! Now that we have been, it’s truly a great place to relax and escape the ‘busy-ness’ of the city. And so, from now on, we have no excuse 🙂
