Sydney's Best Italian

This place is a hidden little gem! We enjoyed a spectacular dinner with a generous antipasto plate and ordered zucchini flowers to share which were divine. The wife had the homemade gnocchi and I devoured my slow cooked lamb. Both were amazing! Service is very attentive and friendly yet not overbearing. Definitely recommended with a big thumbs up

  • Chef Of The Year - Export Fresh

    Cucinetta is about the revival of the old, classic and ancient. Vincenzo’s passion in food derives directly from a love of reviving forgotten methods. From traditional slow cooking, cheese making, fresh pasta techniques and preserving Vincenzo aims to continue these traditions by hand with great respect to the way cooking used to be and how he can used them in today’s kitchens.

  • Does My Bomb Look Big In This

    Perched on the edge of the Woolwich Lookout, the restaurant looks like a modern, glass-fronted box; however if you venture inside – and you should - you’ll find a warm, earthy space inspired by Tuscany.

  • Spooning Australia Blog Review

    While Cucinetta translates to kitchenette in English the venue Cucinetta is anything but a kitchenette. It is a fine dining, but at the same time, relaxed Italian marvel of A-Grade cuisine designed and prepared from Chef Vincenzo Mazzotta who has owned the venue for eleven years now. Following on from a fantastic renovation it is now expanded and more beautiful than ever, framing Sydney Harbour and the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Huge thanks to the wonderful folks at Australian Good Food Guide f...
