The Food and Wine are plentiful, and Superb! Leaning towards regional Milanese family recipes, our emphasis is on modest but plentiful Italian dining experience! “Tutto e possibile”— The belief that “anything is possible”

This was the dream of a father and son. After a successful Trattoria father and son started THE MAD ITALIAN. Now more than 10 years later the family centered tradition continues with a husband & wife team at the forefront and the same patience and passion fuels the drive to welcome more people to the family.

Our Restaurant is situated in the vibey heart of the Durban North community. A place where Italian Food brings people together to celebrate, relax and enjoy the moment.
