Great food and atmosphere. Understanding when called to inform I would be arriving late. A bit pricey but probably standard for the area

It’s so wonderful to live close to a great Italian restaurant! My visit was a delight as always. The seafood linguini is divine and everything on the menu is tempting. Thank you Carolina for being our waitress - always so charming. The quality and authenticity of the food make this little gem a pleasure in which to dine! Omar and Giacomo are Italian masters!

Absolutely beautiful authentic Italian restaurant. We had such a wonderful time. The perfect place for an intimate dinner for two. We will definitely be back. The atmosphere is gorgeous. The staff are gorgeous. Love, love, love Cucinetta.

The service was amazing, fantastic wine list, cosy atmosphere and we had the best dish we've ever eaten! The eggplant parmegana (starter) was that good, that we ordered it again after our mains and before dessert. Not a doubt in my mind that whenever I come to Melbourne I will always go here!
