What real Italian Food should taste like

Villa San Giovanni opened its doors in 1981 when Giovanni and Maria Maiorana and their two sons Luca and Christian Maiorana immigrated to South Africa from Milan Italy. Running a family business was not always easy but it has been worth every moment and there is no doubt that passion goes into everything we do.


“Gathering around a table is how our family expresses love and friendship”

Over the years our clients have asked for take-home versions of our most popular meals and we always put it off as time is limited when running a family business. They wanted Villa San Giovanni quality and the convenience of that dish at home, saving them time and the cost of doing it themselves. Various requests ranged from meals to take on holidays, meals to entertain at home, treating themselves at home and for those delicate occasions when giving food shows more love and care than a bunch of flowers. Finally……. during Covid we had a lot of TIME on our hands and our Frozen Italian range was born, we can now meet all our customers’ needs more conveniently than ever.

Frozen Italian is based on the same values that helped us establish the Villa San Giovanni brand almost 40 years many years ago – Simplicity, Generosity, Convenience, Quality and most importantly Passion for Italian food. These values are at the heart of everything we do. This includes generous home style meals, made with quality fresh ingredients, using simple traditional methods, conveniently delivered from our kitchen to yours.


Villa San Giovanni is a small family-owned business with traditional values, but we have big delicious plans and we look forward to taking you on our frozen Italian adventure.


Buon Appetito!
