Franschhoek Wine Valley

BICCCS Franschhoek

The Mazzone family, proud owners of award winning Ritrovo Ristorante come from a long line of artiginal Italian Ice cream producers. As a child Giovanni Sr. worked in the family gelateria which formed part of the family establishment “Bar Fortunato” in Pietrastornina, Italy. With this unique family history Giovanni and Fortunato Mazzone decided to pursue a dream. The result of this dream was the opening of BICCCS at the Waterkloof Heights Shopping Centre in Pretoria.

BICCCS Franschhoek opened on February 1st 2010 on the Franschhoek main road with our partner Peter Oberzaucher at the helm. Peter previously worked under the later Frank Zlomke at Grande Roche in Paarl and refined his skills at award winning restaurants in Austria. Peter is ably assisted by young SA chef Peet Swart. Our beautiful outdoor area, large (and unique Franschhoek) parking with 40 bays and boules court and children’s playground have proved an instant hit. The combination of superb quality and value for money has proved to be an irresistible temptation to our food-savvy Franschhoek clients.

The unique name BICCCS stands for Bread, Ice-cream, Cake, Croissant, Coffee and Sandwich. BICCCS is a cross-over between the traditional Italian Gelateria, a top quality Bakery and Patisserie and a comfortable and contemporary coffee.
