Oakville restaurant takes fine dining and romantic outings to a whole new level

Published March 3, 2023 at 11:19 am

Cucci Ristorante has long been one of Oakville’s best restaurants in the busy Bronte neighbourhood, even receiving multiple accolades and landing on exclusive restaurant lists.

That’s because the restaurant, located at 119 Jones St near Lakeshore Rd., has mastered the art of fine dining – the combination of modern Italian cuisine, and exceptional service all in a beautifully intimate dining room makes Cucci perfect for romantic outings and special events. Reservations can be made online.

Cucci will be extending their elegant dining room to include their new lounge experience in the summer of 2023, spotlighting their baby grand piano and live entertainment.

Their efforts in elevating the fine dining experience continue to pay off on a national scale – Cucci has been voted one of Canada’s most romantic restaurants, most beloved restaurants, best Italian restaurants, and one of Canada’s best patios, among many other accolades. 

The menu features beautiful Italian dishes made from scratch, with house-made pastas, flavourful entrees, and authentically sweet Italian desserts.

Check out some of the most popular dishes on the menu:

  • Seared Scallops: A mouthwatering dish of scallops served with roasted cauliflower puree, caper brown butter, and hazelnut.

  • Mushrooms on Toast: A mainstay that’s been on the menu for 15 years, this popular dish features wild foraged mushrooms, leeks, truffle fondue, and grilled sourdough.
  • Boneless Short Rib: A flavourful short rib with braised leek mash, new season vegetables, and topped with thyme pangrattato (Italian breadcrumbs).

  • Muscovy Duck Breast: Enjoy the savoury taste of duck breast with sauteed garlic snow pea leaves, duck confit braised stuffed apple, and cassis jus.

Every dish on the menu can be paired perfectly with a drink from Cucci’s extensive selection of wine, craft beer, champagne, and luxury cocktails.

Cocktails such as the Bramble (Bombay Sapphire Gin, Fresh Lemon, Chambord) and Elijah Craig Old Fashioned (Elijah Craig Bourbon, Angostura Bitters, Maple Syrup) are perfect for adding an elegant splash of sweetness to your meal. If you’re not sure which drink pairs best with your dish, just ask your server!

For dessert, savour traditional Italian sweets such as tiramisu, blueberry panna cotta with white chocolate, crème brûlée, pineapple tarts, and gelato.

The only thing more memorable than the food is the gorgeous interior: White linen tablecloths, antique Italian mirrors, and brass lighting make every visit to Cucci an intimate experience.

That elegance extends to the beautiful wrap-around patio, a perfect romantic space for dining al fresco. 

The restaurant is also known for its elevated service, with servers who are polite and attentive while never being intrusive – in essence, it’s the perfect setting for a night of food and romance.

That said, Cucci isn’t just for outings for two. The restaurant boasts several private areas and back rooms that can seat up to 10, 20, and even 60 guests or complete buyouts, providing an even more intimate and private experience that’s ideal for bigger events, parties, and meetings.

With some of the best cuisine and fine dining in all of the GTA, it’s easy to see how Cucci, which first opened its doors in 2008, has remained one of Oakville’s best restaurants for over 15 years and counting.

Experience the magic of Cucci Ristorante for yourself by making a reservation for any special occasion.
