The Picnic "La Scampagnata"

with Luca Toni

‘Il Cesto della merenda – The Snack Basket’

Take a day trip out of town, indulge and take picnics with Luca’s Authentic Italian snack basket.

Think crusty homemade bread or focaccia with delicious cured meats, olives, cheeses and wine! Antipasti, traditional Stuzzichini (Finger Foods) and Panini are all quintessential ‘scampagnata’ fare made with love and special care. Foods that define a precise cultural tradition.

Pick one of our carefully prepared hampers, leave Johannesburg with family or friends and treat them to the perfect picnic in true Italian Style.

“GITA FUORI PORTA is an Italian expression that perfectly captures the typical day trip out of town. Literally, meaning an excursion out of doors, leaving the city gates behind.”
