Anthony Benvenuto’s earliest memories are from his father’s restaurant in Durban, and his personal history is anchored in a love for food and the food industry. “Must be an Italian thing”, he says. He began a restaurant business in his 20s, but left South Africa to pursue the corporate life in the UK. After an interlude in London working in investment banking, Anthony decided to turn back to where his heart lay.

“Just like an Italian, I loved having people round for lunch on Sundays – the more the merrier. If I'm cooking for two, then why not for ten?” With the encouragement of his wife and friend, Aiden, Anthony started to make pies. He stood on the street in the little village he stayed in and attempted to sell pies. Aiden put up a board saying 'should I give up my day job and bake pies'? Thus began the Pasticcio journey.

Pasticcio has a simple philosophy - creating uncomplicated yet delicious food, using natural, wholesome ingredients and traditional methods. Their famous shortcrust pastry is made in the bakery, and meat is free range or pasture fed, sourced from Anthony’s friend and respected butcher Ryan Boon. A wide selection of breads, cakes and assorted treats, as well as superb coffee made by trained baristas are available at the Pasticcio store and café in Paarl.
