Lunch @ Caffe e Cucina

We continue our Australia Day feasting with something Italian and a visit to Caffe e Cucina. It's sad to say that we've never been here before - many reasons, either it was too full or no parking or there's somewhere else to go.

The space has a nice feel - that Italian feel, cramped and dark and somewhat cluttered, an eclectic mix of decoration but somehow when you put it all together it feels like home.

For starters:

Well put together - tender beef, served with wafer thin slices of radish and rocket leaves to provide a spicy note against the "sweet" beef.

A revelation on the antipasto plate was the Parmigiano Ice cream - more please! Excellent eggplant puree still lovely and warm, roasted red peppers and good quality selection of cured meats.

For Mains:

The waiter does issue a warning that there can be small bones in this - understandable with rabbit and having cooked with it I know how difficult it can be to find all those bones.

Full of mushroom flavours but lacking a little in the creaminess factor.
