CONCORD // CAFE & RESTAURANT
Cucina Espresso café and restaurant on Majors Bay Road in the heart of Concord is a favourite amongst locals. The combination of fine food, lively atmosphere and the warm Italian hospitality from the Calautti brothers, Carlo (left) and Rocco (right) makes Cucina Espresso it a real local winner.
Breakfast at Cucina is the perfect start to the day, whether it’s a light snack or a full meal you’ll find it on the menu. The highlight is the House Special, a selection of six different Italian style baked eggs. “Uovo Rosso e Ricotta”, baked eggs in a Napoletana sauce with ricotta, and “Uovo Porcini” eggs baked in creamy white wine sauce with porcini mushroom, black truffle and crispy bacon.
These need to be added to your Food Must Try list
The lunch menu is equally impressive, as Head Chef Carlo showcases his love of food rooted in authentic and traditional flavours of his families heritage in Calabria in Southern Italy. His philosophy is sourcing the best and freshest ingredients to create dishes. Must try is the perfectly al dente Italian pasta dishes including “Spaghettini al Gamberettie” prawn pasta with EVO, garlic, chilli and parsley, “Spaghetti con Granchio” blue swimmer crab, Roma tomatoes, rose sauce, and a traditional Beef Lasagna. There also have café favourites, including burgers, fish and salads.
Throughout the COVID19 lockdown and trade restrictions, Cusina Espresso created a range of takeaway Gourmet Box Meals, sauces and home cook meals that are still available. These include Lasagna, Arancini, Meatballs and other dishes, contact Cucina to order yours.
