We went to Bucatinis for a family lunch for my mums birthday. Being Easter Sunday it was almost full but the service was excellent. Our waitresses were so efficient and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble including cutting and serving the birthday cake we brought along. We had the steak, rack of lamb, salmon, seafood stew, risotto, and all of... More

Been a couple of times for group functions as some of the people in the group had food vouchers. Found the menu items a bit pricey and when food arrived, serves were a bit small. Food was OK . Do not have a problem paying high prices if I get value for money.

Lovely staff, lovely meal. It is always a pleasure to dine here. This time however, very much disappointed by the attitude of the manager. We used our "Good Food" gift vouchers and he complained the whole time that it was costing him money. We will take our money elsewhere from now on.

The ricotta inside the cannelloni was cold. We asked them to warm it up 2 times until it was sufficiently hot enough to eat. Even then, the taste was very average. When we got the bill at the end, we did let them know we were unhappy with the cannelloni - the waitress said she had to speak to the... More

Came for dinner early on a Wednesday evening. Service was good. Menu had enough to choose from, though pretty standard "Italian' fare. For the reputation this place has go, the meals were quite small and a little on the expensive side. My salt and pepper calamari main was the same size and quality as an entree I had few days...

This restaurant is billed as one of the best in the area but the food was a bit of a mixed bag. The veal was overcooked. The seafood stew was excellent. There were very limited vegetarian options. Overall, I would have expected better for the price. I must say, however, that he staff were excellent. Service was top notch but... More

A group of five of us are dinner here last Wednesday night. It was quite busy for a week night. The service was friendly and good. We ordered a share platter (for 2) and the cheese and tomato focaccia as an entree to share which was plenty for us before our main courses arrived. Two of us had the Scallopini,... More

I joined five friends for lunch on 20 December, a very popular day for end of year lunches. The restaurant was crowded but service and meals were usual high class service. Each of us had a different main course, all of which were voted as great. I can recommend the whole grilled flounder but the seafood stew and duck risotto... More
