This cosy South Yarra kitchen specialises in pillowy gnocchi and cheese wheel pasta.
July 24, 2019
The restaurant behind last year's legendary 29-cheese gnocchi creation, it's safe to say South Yarra's Cucinetta has a soft spot for pillowy potato dumplings. This cosy eatery specialises in generous pasta dishes, alongside a slew of other traditional Italian fare, its weekly-changing menu heroing top local produce and home-style cooking.
In good news for true aficionados, a new handmade gnocchi dish appears with each Tuesday's new menu. These days, you might find yourself sitting down to a version made with rocket pesto and swordfish, a fusion of crab, clams and cherry tomatoes, or perhaps a seasonal concoction of Italian sausage, pumpkin cream and truffle oil.
Plus, the kitchen also serves up cacio e pepe straight out of a pecorino wheel every day of the week.
