Caffe e Cucina, an intimate Italian restaurant is a long-running success story on South Yarra's busy Chapel Street. The eatery has been around since 1988 and Melbournites depend on its presence when they're craving Nonna's kitchen. The interior is happily cramped, with big posters, awards and mementos plastered on the walls, a large and busy bar area and small tables tucked wherever possible.
It has been more than 25 years since Caffe e Cucina opened its doors with the intention of recreating the vibe of traditional Trattorias and Cafes. Freshly baked bread every day, in-house made pasta and the use of genuine Italian ingredients are the features that make it so authentic after all these years.
You can choose the busy downstairs area or the quieter area upstairs, depending on the occasion. Enjoy a drink at the bar, or an aperitivo ‘alfresco’. And for those who really want to impress their ‘special one’ nothing can compare to the ‘Romeo e Giulietta’ table – private dinner for two on the little balcony upstairs.
