Mate. What a disappointing experience! Last time I dined at Bucci was 5 years ago with my family when we flew up from Sydney. It was fantastic! I went again this week and it was such a different experience. The service was shocking! We were left alone for so long that we actually left before we even got the chance... More

Arrived after nine as they were packing up and were almost turned away. A quick word with the kitchen and they said they could cook something simple for us weary travellers. The most amazing risotto with mushrooms and cold whit wine. We were not hurried while they packed up silently round us... we were even offered a coffee. Nothing seemed... More

A well prepared and delicious dinner. Solicitous wait staff, pleasant atmosphere, great location. Outside, but covered in case of weather. Perfect music (Frank Sinatra era).

It is the off season in FNQ, so there was no problem in getting a table. Service was attentive, and food quantity was plentiful. I had the duck pasta, and it lacked a little something. It is BYO wine and licensed as well, so a good choice for those not wanting to pay restaurant prices for their wine.

Tried here and we were very impressed. Only in Port Douglas for 2 nights so very glad that one was spent here. Had the special bruschetta starter and the stuffed giant olives (sorry, can't remember what the proper name was). Both delicious- really enjoyed a different way of eating olives. Not something you come across very often (well, not in... More

Visited on our last night in Port Douglas a few nights ago and ended up disappointed. After visiting PD for years we decided to try this place as we hadn't previously, being a Tuesday we both ordered the 2 for 1 pasta which was a good deal, however the serving size was quite small. The garlic bread as an entree/starter... More

Amazing crab spaghetti, best we've eaten in Australia. Deconstructed lasagne was delicious as well and a clever touch as the focus on meat sauce over cheese/white sauce works well in the Northern QLD heat. Fried stuffed olive starter also very very good. Only thing is it's hot real hot the fans just seem to heat around ! Not a problem... More

Loved this restaurant. Located right on the main road in Port Douglas with that indoor/outdoor dining option that is so popular here. Our waiter was Italian, very friendly and efficient. Food was so good.....full of flavor and just the right size. Lots of options including local seafood dishes. If we're ever in this neck of the woods again, we'll eat... More

Friends had recommended this place so we decided to give it a try and were very glad that we did. I had a proscuitto and mushroom taglietelle which was heavenly and my husband chose the Bucci lasagne which he said was the best lasagne he had ever eaten! A good wine list including a variety of cocktails. The staff were... More
