We’ve discovered Newton’s best kept secret, and it’s extra delicious.

Where should you go when you want a home cooked meal, just like your nonna would make? Fine Food Cucina has been serving up authentic Italian dishes for almost 10 years, with careful instruction from owner Dario Fontanarosa. One bite and you’ll be Fine Food fans for life!

“We’re all about high quality, homestyle cooking from our family to yours. Our food is filled with love and passion,
and as I always say — if I wouldn’t feed it to my children, I won’t serve it to my customers,” Dario says.

Dine the Fine Food way

Open six days a week, Fine Food Cucina is dedicated to creating quality meals using traditional recipes. “The main ingredients in all of our food? Culture and a whole lot of passion,” Dario says.

For the early birds, the Bialetti coffee is strong and the breakfast menu is big, with fan-favourites like smashed avocado and pancakes up for grabs. Stop by for lunch — whether you’re craving a hearty bowl of puttanesca, a hand-stretched pizza topped with incredible ingredients, or their Tradie Pack, which includes three of their top-selling paninis: prosciutto, salami and chicken schnitzel.

And hallelujah, Fine Food Cucina serves quality Italian soft drinks, wine and cocktails to make your feast feel even more special!

From their home to yours!

Fine Food Cucina has taken the work out of your next dinner with their grab and go meals. “We’re about convenience, and want to make sure that busy families can enjoy a home-cooked meal together,” says Dario.

Their lasagna (available in classic, vegetarian and many other options) is famous among loyal customers. Just pop it in the oven and everyone will be praising your excellent skills in the kitchen. Your secret is safe with us!

And while you’re shopping for dinner options, pick up some extra goodies — pasta, olives, Italian liqueurs, fresh coffee — you won’t leave empty handed!

Party picks

Ain’t no party like a Fine Food party! The catering menu is mouth watering, with antipasto boxes, heat-and-eat arancini, porchetta roasts, and huge trays of pasta! Their in-house pastry chefs can also whip up some mini assorted cakes for an epic dessert table if ‘Sweet’ is your middle name.

Fine Food Cucina also throws their own parties to celebrate seasonal and local produce — keep an eye on their social media pages and website to be in the know.

Without fail, I walk into Fine Food Cucina hungry, and walk out, arms full and heart warm and fuzzy. Now, that’s amore!
