A Window into Life in the Suburbs

Cucina of Italy

The husband took me out to a really lovely Italian place for lunch yesterday and I'm still salivating at the thought of how good the bruschetta was. The restaurant, named Cucina of Italy, boasts an authentic Italian menu. Whether it is authentic, is beyond my level of expertise but the dishes were delicious and substantial.

The interior, I also found warm and endearing... reminded me of those cafe scenes from Roman Holiday.

The husband ordered a veal ravioli, while I had a beef lasagne. But the pierce de resistance was the garlic bruschetta pizza. Oh golly... bread and tomatoes never tasted so good together.

By the end of the meal we were stuffed porkers. Really stuffed. The waiter, who recommended the bruschetta offered us some lemon tart imported directly from Italy. I looked at him and thought... you gotta be kidding...
But the tart did look good.
Maybe next time... when I haven't hoed through 4 slices of bruschetta as appetizer and struggle to finish a large helping of lasagne.

Cucina of Italy is located at Sunny Park Shopping Centre, McCullough Rd, Sunnybank.

And no... nobody paid me to write this review... *sob*
