Built in 1929 to reflect the spirit of 18th century Venice, Casa Labia is the former Muizenberg residence of Count and Countess Natale Labia. Cucina Labia occupies the ground floor and outside areas of Casa Labia. Many parts of the restaurant have views of False Bay. In keeping with the heritage of the Labia family, our menu is influenced by Italian cuisine. The venue is also used for weddings and other events.
