Dining Out Italian Style
We're eating and drinking in continental style with this week's favourite virtual tour at Cuccini's Italian Restaurant.
Situated in a popular shopping and socialising suburb of Bournemouth, along the busy Old Christchurch Road, is the large, double-fronted building which houses this spacious and sophisticated dining destination.
Established over 20 years ago, Cuccini's serves classic Italian a la carte cuisine, infused with a deliciously contemporary twist.
Cuccini's is a classy-looking venue. Dark leather seating, a warm expanse of wooden flooring and a grand piano greet customers at the door.
It's a vibrant and elegant space, beautifully decorated throughout.
Stylish furnishings such as huge mirrors, modern artwork on the fashionably exposed red brick walls, and decorative screens give an extra splash of sophistication.
The long high-gloss bar lined with an array of drinks is perfect for drawing diners in for pre-dinner refreshments on arrival at Cuccini's. The buzz at the bar can be soaked up while perched on one of the shiny modern stools or guests can relax into one of the ample leather sofas nearby.
Behind a line of tropical palms shooting up from tall planters lies the dining space where there's plenty of seating for large parties as well as cosy corners for more intimate meals.
The tawny wooden tables and chairs, along with the wall decorations and soft lighting, infuse this room with a welcoming Mediterranean warmth.
At the back of the restaurant yet more seating awaits in the stylish tiled and wine-coloured walled conservatory, inviting diners to what feels like an even more exclusive setting. It's also a perfect space for parties, business meetings, or even a wedding reception.
All that Jazz
There's a jazz theme throughout too, gleaned from the musical pictures and instruments which can be seen dotted around. Live music regularly adds to the relaxing atmosphere from jazz bands, pianists, and the popular FB Pocket Orchestra.
It's the perfect melodious finishing touch to top off the fine food and Italian style which Cuccini's brings to this likeable coastal town.
