Chef Gordon Goss tirelessly searches out the best in local and imported Italian ingredients to concoct award-winning cuisine with understated elegance, where simple flavours are offset by creative twists. An extensive wine list accompanies the modern Italian fare, allowing diners to find appropriate pairings to bring dinner to new heights. Sink your teeth into the menu's thinly sliced lamb carpaccio, drizzled with white truffle oil and beknighted by pecorino cheese with minted tomato salad ($15), or wrap your fork in an overcoat of shrimp linguine, tossed with prosciutto, rapini, and fresh chilies in a cream sauce ($26). Intimate lighting casts a romantic glow over the cozy tables and booths, making Cucci an excellent place to bring a partner when popping the age-old question, "Can we adopt a mastiff?"
