    Lovely place lovely meal. Adjusted a meal to suit a vegetarian diet also which was appreciated. All meals were enjoyed, wines were bellisimo and they supplied ample water as requested.

    We went there for Easter lunch with the family. Service was very good and everyone enjoyed their dishes. Paella was lovely! We will certainly come back.

    Good quality italian food but somewhat dated, and a little under seasoned. Reminds me of italian restaurants of the late 80's - early 90's. Good but not great. Owning a restaurant during COVID would have been a nightmare - and they have all lost mountains of money. Add in spiralling food costs to cook with. I would suggest jazzing up the menu a bit - keeping the tone of the old but a feel of new Italy as well.

    The staff are very attentive and the food was excellent. I can't believe I've lived in the area for 3 years and never been to this place for a meal. I will definitely be going again. It beats the last restaurant I went to down the road less than a week ago hands down.

    Bucatini is always our go to restaurant because we know that we will be looked after attentively, not only with service, but food and ambience and value for money. There is never any change in the way staff look after patrons. Well done once again Bucatini.

    While very noisy, is was terrific to see the restaurant full after a year of Covid. Service remained prompt and waiting time for meals to arrive was unexpectedly short. They dp make one of the tastiest paellas I have had.

    Have been here a couple of times before and very happy with everything. Not tonight, wait service left a lot to be desired, very inattentive. They would make eye contact then walk away. 5 of us dining, 4 meals perfect 5th ordered roast veg pizza, roast veg risotto arrived; the waiter did apologise for his error. Reaching across diners to collect plates and doing so before all diners had finished. In a restaurant like this I expect better.

    First impressions are excellent---white table cloths, warm welcome and prompt service. Food presentation was good but the vitello was very tough---not really veal it might seem. However my Scotch fillet was done to perfection and the Seafood Stew was apparently excellent. Drinks are a reasonable price and coffee is good.Not the first time we've been here but that veal dish put a dampener on the night as two of the group had the veal and both complained.Still liked the overall ambience.

About the restaurant

The best of Bucatini Bucatini is a charming and sophisticated Italian restaurant located in Melbourne’s eastern suburb of Mitcham. Owner and chef Ivan Millich prides himself on his exceptional service, where his waitstaff take it upon themselves to greet customers by name and remember regulars’ favourite orders. It’s ideal for a special celebration or romantic date night, however the restaurant is surprisingly roomy without feeling too big, with a private function room out the back for group bookings or family events. Boasting a top quality Italian menu, Bucatini’s serves are hearty and generous with a large selection of pastas, pizzas, traditional meat cuts, seafood specialities, and not-to-be-missed desserts (try the poached pears!). The wine and drinks menu perfectly complements the meals, while there is also BYO for those who prefer their own personal drops. In winter, a wood fire crackles away, creating a lovely warming atmosphere. Try Bucatini – you won’t be disappointed. Best dish: Eye fillet steak or stuffed mushrooms
