Say bonjourno to Double Bay’s new kid on the block—abc Cucina. The c is for carbs, right?
You’ll feel like part of the familia, dining on authentic Italian food, from the guys who started the Fratelli Fresh empire way back when. The lamb ragu sits on a mountain of fresh conchiglie (that’s shell pasta to you), and focaccia served by the slice that is just the right amount of soft and chewy. The seasonal antipasti plates allow you to mix and match your salumi, cheese and salads like a pro, but really, we suggest you just grab one of everything.
Italian cooking is all about simplicity, which is why you’ll fall in love with the torta della nonna—think creamy Italian custard and toasted pine nuts beneath layers of flakey short crust pastry. Yes, you did just start drooling.
