Mercure Perth has officially opened Cucina on Hay restaurant, the city's latest Italian eatery which will showcase authentic Italian fare through shared dining experiences 7 days a week.
The restaurant design incorporates traditional elements, refined for today's context. The interior creates a courtyard dining space internally, having been transformed with a full-ceiling skylight, angled wooden beams, tumbled terracotta tiles and picnic style benches.
The menu shines with authentic, house-made ingredients, imported Italian treats and outstanding local produce from West Australian suppliers and growers. Signature dishes include an 18-hour slow cooked Lamb Osso Buco, Duck Cappelletti and Zambagilone Semifreddo – Cucina on Hay's take on the traditional creamy Italian dessert.
Italian breads will be baked daily by Il Panino Bakery, olives and extra virgin olive oil from Gin Gin and charcuterie from Mondo Doro Smallgoods.
Breakfast begins with fresh barista made coffee served from the dedicated Cucina Coffee Window for those on the go, and a dine-in breakfast menu showcasing traditional morning favourites with unique Italian twists will be available.
By day, café-style Italian food is a mix of grab-to-go and dine-in lunch items, all made fresh daily. Afternoons extend to an impressive charcuterie and Italian share menu, alongside classic and rustic pizzas which can be enjoyed with wine and beer pairings.
By night, Cucina transforms into a vibrant bar and restaurant, focusing on authentic Italian share plates and specialty Italian cocktails.
Start a meal or end a hard day's work with apertivo hour from 5pm to 6pm, daily.
