Each week we profile the best places in South Africa to drink craft beer. This week, we visit Bocca.
Centrally located on the corner of Whale and Bree street in Cape Town, Bocca serves up Neopolitan pizza, fresh made pastas and other Italian inspired dishes – all in a contemporary, comfortable setting. Opened in October of this year, Bocca has quickly garnered a loyal following among the Capetonian lunch crowd, who regularly pop in for the delicious paninos, salads, pork belly and more.
Serving fresh First Light Golden Ale and #DPBC Lager on Tap, Bocca is the perfect spot for a casual, quick bite or a fun night out. Grab some friends, order a variety of dishes from their “Small Plate” menu, and get ready for a truly unique tasting experience.

Our Top DPBC Beer and Food Pairing: Prosciutto and Rocket Pizza with First Light
There are very few things that go better with a light, easy drinking session ale than a soft, charred, wood-fired pizza. The Prosciutto and Rocket pizza from Bocca is no exception. The soft, malty sweetness of First Light, poured fresh from the tap, is the perfect addition to this meal.
