Buca Osteria & Enoteca

I heard a lot about Buca and we finally got a chance to try out this upscale Italian eatery
It's hidden down this little alley way and when you go downstairs, it opens up to this amazing large and bright space for gatherings.

Pizza salumi
Pizza Salumi Di Buca with smoked mozzarella, king oyster mushrooms and salumi
Nice crispy crust on this artisianal pizza. 

Bigoli: hand-cranked duck egg pasta, duck offal ragu, venetian spices, mascarpone, basil
Really nicely plated and the pasta dish was lovely, but I found the portion a little small.

Gnocchi all'astice
Gnocchi all'astice: lobster gnocchi in a white wine sauce
Yummy meaty chunks of lobster and delicious gnocchi!

Torte di zucchine
Torte di zucchine
Very moist zucchini torte! Not too sweet and a nice change from the usual.

I thought this was lovely with the mousses and semi freddo together - lots of flavours going on and really beautiful to look at.

Baba Al Rum

Unfortunately, this was our least favourite dessert. The cake was a little dry, but soaked in rum flavour. However I found it a little overwhelming.

Overall: An okay meal at Buca - definitely on the pricey side considering the portion sizes.
