Kicking off with a new and improved tasty menu carefully curated by chef Shaun Malone, the birthday festivities are in full swing with this selection dedicated to seven years of Bucci’s menu favourites. Since its inception, Bucci has released 21 varieties of their famed arancini balls, and the new menu will see the most popular versions return. Bite into some delicious Arancini Alla Milanese Con Coniglio, saffron risotto balls stuffed with rabbit ragu and gooey mozzarella, or nibble on Arancini Ai Funghi, roast field and porcini mushroom risotto balls with blueberry conserve.

The birthday celebrations will also see the return of the restaurant’s renowned mains, including the well-loved open-style lasagne, built to bellissimo perfection with Ranger Valley beef, truffle mascarpone and baby spinach. Or slurp up some of Bucci’s Boar-lognese, crafted with tender boar ragu, porcini, smoked speck and red wine mixed with house-made gnocchi.

If you’re dreaming of the Amalfi coast and would prefer a tranquil, seaside vibe, Bucci’s Linguine Al Granchio is a must-have. Fresh Fraser Isle spanner crabs claw their way into this dish all the way from Mooloolaba, topped off with linguine, chilli, parsley and lemon.

What’s dining without some wining? The restaurant also has a choice of Italian and local Australian wines, and you can enjoy sipping grappa, limoncello and amaro. Or if you love a bit of a kick, treat yourself to Bucci’s expertly crafted Negroni, combining gin, vermouth and Campari, garnished with a zesty orange peel.

Treat yourself and live La Dolce Vita with Bucci’s delicious dessert menu. Indulge in their signature flourless cake, the Chocolate Nemesis, the new enemy to your diet. Part cake and part mousse, the chocolatey creation is delectably made with dark chocolate for your pleasure. Or relish in old school Italian with lemon and meringue cannoli, and tiramisu.

Bucci’s Event Manager Sabrina Judge says the restaurant is “delighted to be celebrating our seven years with a menu that pays tribute to the loyalty of our customers and what they love to eat when they come dine with us.” Judge also said that Bucci is excited to launch the new menu “as temperatures dip in Brisbane with autumn and winter now on our doorstep. We know many of these dishes are the perfect cosy dining option…just add vino and Buon Appetito!”

Bucci is open every day for lunch and dinner, so you can have your taste of Italy. Ciao!
