Dine With A Cheeky Donkey - Not Your Thing, Try A Wine Bar
Don't we all love a good wine bar and cafe and Casa Ciuccio is delighted to opens a new one.

Fitzroy's Casa Ciuccio (pronounced Choo-Cho) has reopened with new owners, Fabio Candolo and Carrie Bartonek. They have redesigned the environment to include the new Ciuccio Café and Wine Store.

With cheeky menus and fun spaces, Casa Ciuccio actually means house of the cheeky donkey. It is a classic two-story Victorian terrace location which is fun both day and night.

There's a fun and easy menu and the prices are reasonable, leaning towards a little on the high life side.

Casa Ciuccio had a former life as a deli, however, although the remnants of this are still visible, the new Ciuccio Café leaves these roots behind as it moves towards a great cafe in its own right.

One of the things I love is cafes that allow an all day breakfast menu, which you can find at Casa Ciuccio. I am looking forward to trying the slow roasted sumac tomatoes.

The sound of the coal pit roasted pork on brioche, may make you salivate, along with a selection of cabinet sandwiches and salads.
They offer both dine in and take away.

I promised you a wine bar in the title and even better if the wines are organic. From the same location as the café, the Wine Store offers a selection of over 100 organic, biodynamic and natural wines.

One of the things I really love about this is that you may venture into the wine store, make your selection and for a corkage fee, you can then share that bottle over a meal.In the future, Casa Ciuccio are wanting to also have a wine tasting option.

I love the option to share plates and wines and enjoy a little taste of everything.

Upstairs is an overhanging courtyard and bar, with limited edition prints by Billy Justice and Sarah Kelk from Modern Times, it is available for special events.

Ciuccio Café and Wine Store is open 7 days a week for breakfast and lunch from 8am until 7pm (Sunday until 5pm).

Casa Ciuccio Restaurant is open from 5pm till late, Tuesday till Saturday.
