Thoroughly enjoyed our meal recently for our 1st wedding anniversary. Food was delicious (loved the shaved parmesan cheese) and service was very attentive without being over the top. Would recommend the scallops as a starter :-). Had a drink at the bar beforehand and staff made the experience seamless in transferring our bill through to our table and also in... More

The menu gives to you some impressive names for very standard food. The carpaccio , while not bad, is served with a fondue that do not match at all, when it really goes with parmesan cheese, bu this is not tell to you in the menu. Then, the wild boar lognaise, very sophisticated name, that at the end is not... More

The food here is just delicious. We went for a rainy day lunch which made it perfect but you couldn't fault the lovely personable staff and we were in raptures over the food. I love beef carpaccio and it is rarely on a menu. It was there and it was good. 6 of us in total and every one was... More

Normally we do not order Spaghetti when dinning out, but we are glad we did the meal can only be rated as 10 out of 10 the flavours were perfectly balanced and the meal was excellent. The wait staff were terrific and... More

Looking for a place where we could go where my partner could eat his fritto misto and I could indulge my meat craving with the delightful Flinders lamb rack. The lamb was perfectly cooked and so tender with the salsa verde and crushed potatoes balancing the flavours. The menu has opportunities to enjoy share plates if desired. The vibe is... More

Almost everything was quite exquisite. Pumpkin flowers rather than the more typical zucchini were probably the most amazing of the dishes. The chocolate cake to finish, and even the espresso was great. Wild boar pasta was a huge disappointment - really a surprise given that my pasta, the barramundi and the risotto were fabulous. Ah well. another time!

We stumbled across Bucci on a Monday night because a highly rated competitor was closed... What an absolute joyous experience...this is Italy in Brisbane - the trend of fantastic quality food (the menu is simply brilliant and the variety ample) with the best service imaginable is what you get. Giovanni, the pleasurable waiter was excellent and his recommendations for shared... More

We visited with family. Our mains were good but we weren't impressed with the desserts. DH had a glass of chianti classico but they didn't have any whites I would have liked so I had an aperol spritz. DH had the agnolotti filled with braised beef cheek served with caramelised mushroom and mushroom broth which had a deep earthy flavour... More
