If you’re craving an exotic Italian getaway, complete with excessive perfectly cooked pasta and the cheesiest of pizzas, we have the answer and it comes in the form of Cucina Vivo, The Star Gold Coast’s five-star Italian venue bringing Italy to you.
Inspired by cliff-top restaurants along the Amalfi Coast, Cucina Vivo features an outdoor terrace overlooking the stunning pool and offers a distinct Italian seaside atmosphere but right here on the Gold Coast.
It’s the destination venue Italian dreams are made of, beautifully fit out with a casual yet cosy vibe where the joy and passion of cooking comes to life.
Right now though, the most exciting part is that you can enjoy Cucina Vivo’s stunning dining experience at home with a (tried and tested by us) shared menu from The Star Gold Coast’s Table for 2 offering.
The set six-course menu starts with a chef’s selection of antipasti followed by their signature seafood pasta, Campanelle Fruitti Di Mare (a seafood pasta of the very best variety) with local prawns, mussels, fish, chili and tomato.
Next is a Cucina Vivo favourite – the Scallopine Di Vitello made up of Northern Rivers Veal, creamy Marsala, forest mushrooms and silverbeet and (our fave) Roasted Potatoes with Truffle Butter also accompanied with the Insalata Di Rucola.
Don’t forget to save space for dessert – a house made tiramisu with housemade savoardi, marscapone diplomat crème, cheeky Nutella twist and of course, coffee.
Hot tip – there’s also a cheeky additional surprise dish included in every Table For 2 order and you’re going to LOVE it.
But the fun doesn’t stop there, Cucina Vivo have also introduced additional Take Home items to add to your order!
Freshly made pasta and pasta sauce, pizzas with delicious pizza toppings like sliced prosciutto or calabrese salami.
For the dessert lovers (everyone), there’s DIY cannoli packs and Cucina Vivo’s very own house made ice cream in three flavours; Jam Doughnut, Fairy Bread and Cioccolato Pops (the best one).
This is all available for delivery with a minimum order of $70 but if you pick up there’s no minimum order.
Additionally you can choose a Margarita Pizza, fresh pasta and Bolognaise sauce (the best we’ve ever tasted) to cook at home. With a pint of the epic housemade ice cream for dessert of course.
If you need a little bit of Italy in your life (and we know you do), Cucina Vivo’s Italian takeaway offerings are the answer. Find out more here.
