What does Cucina mean?

Milano Cucina restaurant

For us non-Italians, Cucina means kitchen. I first wrote of another Cucina when I dined at Enoteca Cucina over a year ago. That was one of my favourite Italian restaurants, and I now come to expect premium traditional food when I dine at such Italian kitchens.

Milano Cucina doesn't disappoint in that regard. Located in the popular dining precinct of Hutt St in the city, it is well worth a visit. The menu has a wide variety of options, but my personal opinion is that you can never go wrong with good quality pizza and pasta for lunch or dinner. If it suits you, they also serve breakfast seven days a week.

For entree, my partner and I shared a dish of Formaggio alla Griglia, put simply it was grilled haloumi cheese with pear, rocket, and an olive oil balsamic glaze. For mains, we shared the Palazzo Sfroza pizza and a ragu fettuccine pasta. Both were very satisfying, especially the pasta which was very hearty, and the meat was so tender, it just melted in my mouth.

Formaggio alla Griglia
Formaggio alla Griglia - Chargrilled haloumi cheese, pear, rocket, walnut, shaved parmesan, olive oil and balsamic glaze

Palazzo Sforza pizza - caramelised onions, potatoes, mild pepperoni, bacon

Fettuccine al Doppio Ragu - egg pasta with double ragout of veal and pork, Milano style

The decor is very fresh and modern, making for a fine dining experience. Service was very good, and price is reasonable, so there aren't any negatives I can point out.

Try them for yourselves, and see if it rates up there with your favourite Italian restaurants.

Your Comment
This all looks very nice and appealing... A Mother's Milk on Unley Rd, also do a pear and rocket salad. It's a pear, blue cheese and rocket salad with a vino cotto dressing, with walnuts, too. It's very nice, although I did hear the establishment described once as 'rocket cafe', because the salad has alot of rocket in it. We've been making versions of this salad at home, ever since we tried it there. Great coffee there too, by the way. Oh and their apple crumble cake was pretty good as well.
