Iconic Bucci restaurant on James Street is an all-out Italian dining powerhouse. With a firm focus on fresh, local produce and innovating traditional recipes, you’ll step into their light and airy space and be instantly charmed by its character. The chic fit out, sleek mirrored bar, spectacular open kitchen and huge windows opening onto bustling James St paired with their signature, modern take on rustic regional Italian recipes make Bucci a truly household name in Brisbane.
The team at Bucci pride themselves on knowing all their local suppliers personally or sourcing ingredients direct from Italy, and it really shines through in the authentic seasonal menu of share plates, like their legendary arancini that change with the season, or the burrata tartufata with truffled James Street honey, pancetta, blueberries and walnuts.
The carnivorously inclined will revel in Bucci’s selection of dried and cured meats—oh, and let’s not forget their impeccable mains and delicious (read: addictive) desserts. We’re calling it: their insanely good chocolate cake—that models its recipe on London’s River Café’s famous Chocolate Nemesis cake—is right up there with the best we’ve ever tasted. If you have never tried it, you haven’t lived!
For such incredible food, Bucci’s set lunch menu ($24 for two courses, and $30 for three) is absolutely unreal value, and is switched up monthly to keep your tastebuds guessing. And what better excuse to enjoy Bucci’s award-winning wine list, or that perfect daytime cocktail: the quintessentially Italian Aperol Spritz—which Bucci mixes to absolute perfection. Salute!
