Lina by Farro: A Tiny Boutique Pizza Place in Hermanus

Puffy Neapolitan pizzas from the Farro team that pack a flavour punch.

The culinary whizzes behind Farro at Gabriëlskloof Wine Estate in the Overberg, Alex and Eloise Windebank, have brought some of their flavour-packed magic to Hermanus. Their new little pizza place is inspired by their lifelong love for coastal Italy, for Neapolitan pizza and tiny restaurants, Eloise says. “It’s a tiny little shoebox of a restaurant with pretty much everything on display. The vibe is light and bright, with pops of colourful art and botanicals against a pretty industrial setting.”

Pizza party

Just as Farro celebrates contemporary European cooking, Lina showcases uncomplicated but delicious dishes using the best local produce. Look forward to authentic Neapolitan wood-fired pizzas using Caputo flour, Puglia fior di latte and Richard Bosman charcuterie fired in super sexy Ooni ovens. A handful of salads, some small plates, and a few desserts round up the offering. Think burrata with 15-year-old balsamic vinegar, springbok crudo and salumi with marinated artichoke and grissini.

Spill outdoors

The tiny space overflows out onto pavement tables looking down towards the ocean. Can’t find a table? Grab a takeaway pizza and wander down to the Marine Tidal Pool to get some whale watching in and soak up the salty sea breeze.

Good to know They don’t yet have a liquor licence, so bring your own bottle or pop into the nearby Wine & Co shop to choose a local vintage.
