We went to Bucci and didn't book a time. The staff were very friendly and sat us in a waiting area until they found us a table. We were here a few years ago and they will always accommodate quite quickly. We didn't have to wait long and we enjoyed the entrée which was the aranchini balls and then had... More

Great food and service. Slightly on the more expensive side for pasta, but definitely worth the price for a nice night out. Delicious fresh food and probably some of the best pasta I have eaten from a restaurant.

The service at Bucci was wonderful - extremely friendly and really fast. We ordered the aranchini balls to start - they were delicious Then we had a steak (incredible) and a pasta dish (pretty good). It's at the pricey end of restaurants in Port Douglas, but the atmosphere is lovely - sitting outside under the fairy-light-lit canopy is lovely. Overall,... More

Stopped in here for dinner as we were craving a bit of pasta.! Was not disappointed. My husband had the lasagna which was deconstructed but he said it was 'amazing'. I had the pasta with mushroom and ham which was tasty too but a bit oily. Slightly expensive, but I think similar to other restaurants on the strip. Would come... More

It can be hot and sweaty work dining at Bucci (and we were lucky to be under the fans), but it is beyond worth it. The six of us agreed this was some of the best food we had in port Douglas. The crab pasta is exceptionally good - everything is though. Dessert time it is easy to be totally... More
