Good standard Italian fare with generous portion sizes. Service efficient and pleasant. For a change, appropriate background music and not the usual muzak to put you off your meal!

Really nice food, good service and a great atmosphere. The pan fried Barramundi was pure heaven with an Italian take.

This restaurant is right next to the Villa San Michelle apartments/hotel. Outdoor eating in a friendly environment. The food was tasty and satisfied our desire for Italian food. I recommend it and would return to enjoy another meal when needing an Italian food fix when in town.

Nice ambience. Wait man pleasant character but should consider work in another trade. Three meals of four were not as per menu. Other items not available. No Italian Prosseco...but Australian. One salt jar shared between how many tables?

We didn't have a booking and stood waiting for the maître 'd to acknowledge us. He saw us but went all around the diners, staff saw us but also chose to ignore us. Eventually he came over, said yes there was a table and to wait. Again, we waited and waited. The service was extremely slow but the food was... More

Bucci is a good restaurant but it's just not quite up to speed when it comes to it's service. It was an extremely busy night when we were there but you need to cater for this as a business. The food is good for PD standards. Better than a lot of restaurants but not quite as good as the best.... More

Grossly overpriced meals. Cabanara fetucine average and had to pay extra for a speinkle of chilli. My vegetarian wife was going to charged extra for asking to replace all bacon with a vegetable. She was told that it would be charged extra as a side order. $30 for a mediocre bowl of pasta with cream sauce and a chopped mushroom!... More

Absolutely overpriced Bucci Italian Restaurant does not offer authentic Italian food, but rather Italian influenced dishes. There is no menu outside the restaurant, once you ordered your drinks you will get the menu with overpriced dishes.
