About the Café

Italian Family Tradition

Casa Italia


Casa Italia is a modern day interpretation of the traditional Italian bar serving a wholesome menu of Micro-Roasted Coffee OTTO, Handcrafted Premium Gelato, Freshly-Made Food (salads, oven-baked pizzas and panini), Italian beers and wine in a fast casual all-day dining setting.

Casa Italia originated from a gelato parlour established in 2010 in Singapore and operated under the name Gelateria Italia. Championing the use of the finest quality ingredients and traditional, time-honoured techniques, the store was an instant hit with lines forming daily through the year for the next three years. Having become the largest and most popular gelato parlour in Singapore, we decided to expand into the Italian specialty coffee and comfort food; opening in 2014 our first fast casual all-day dining restaurant. We have since grown rapidly, with close to 20 restaurants opened and international locations coming up soon.
Fox Hardegger, Founder of Casa ItaliaCasa Italia is founded by Fox Hardegger who is a visionary serial entrepreneur, franchising expert, and a renowned motivational and business management speaker. His vision is to create a unique dining concept that serves to provide the best Italian comfort food, using honest ingredients.

Our Restaurant Design

Style

Viva l’Italia! – Our restaurants are built using the same rustic, colourful and warm materials commonly found in traditional Italian country homes. A combination of premium woods, natural stones, antique glass and unique decorative objects are employed to create stylish, authentic and elegant ambiance that sets the stage for the quality of food served.

 

Feel

A feel good place away from home! An environment where customers can relax, catch up with friends, read a book, listen to music, surf the internet and enjoy premium food served quickly: slow food served fast! Honest food, honest ambiance, honest feelings away from the hustle and bustle of city life.

 

Made in Italy

Most of our restaurants are 100% MADE IN ITALY. We design and build every space including the counters, displays, light fixtures, signage, furniture and fittings from scratch because we believe that skilled craftsmanship, one-of-a-kind finishes and top Italian construction quality are paramount to our success. Every restaurant is designed and inspected for conformity before being built whether it is Singapore, New York, Shanghai or Paris.

Honest Ingredients

Micro-Roasted Premium Coffee OttoMicro-Roasted Coffee Otto

We roast every single origin 100% Arabica coffee in small batches to create the perfect Casa Italia blend used for our hot coffee and cold brew offerings. We believe that to retain its freshness and aromatic qualities, coffee must be consumed within 8 weeks of roasting. That is how we have created Coffee OTTO. Fresh coffee always tastes better!

Coffee OTTO – OTTO means Eight in Italian. Why Eight? Because all coffee beans we used to brew this outstanding coffee is Never Older than Eight weeks from roasting. Coffee OTTO is the freshest coffee in town! At Casa Italia, we are committed to our family traditions, handed down from generation to generation. Like our great grandfather used to say: coffee is at its best when drank fresh!

Handcrafted Premium GelatoHandcrafted Premium Gelato

Our gelato flavours churned out honestly with natural ingredients “come nel 1962” and produced absolutely free of artificial flavours, chemicals, colorants or preservatives. Gelato is generally lower in calories, fat and sugar than ice cream.

What’s the difference between Gelato and Ice Cream?
It starts out with a similar custard base as ice cream, but has a higher proportion of milk and a lower proportion of cream and eggs (or no eggs at all). It is churned at a much slower rate, incorporating less air and leaving the gelato denser than ice cream.

Gelato is served at a slightly warmer temperature than ice cream, so its texture stays silkier and softer. Because it has a lower percentage of fat than ice cream, the main flavour ingredient really shines through.

We have painstakingly selected the best ingredients for our salads, only using the freshest greens available. We also used premium natural wheat flour for our pizza and panini to bring out that authentic taste and texture found in Italy!

What makes a good Italian pizza?
The most important part of an Italian pizza is the dough! More than just the base of the pizza, the dough is what gives the pizza its texture, holds together the flavours, and—if done right—can make you feel like you’ve been transported right back to Italy.
