Italian

Inspired by the cliff-top restaurants of the Amalfi Coast, Cucina Vivo features an outdoor terrace overlooking the newly-renovated pool and is Jupiters’ first outdoor dining venue. Blurring the lines between the inside and the out, it creates the perfect venue for groups to come together over food and wine while enjoying the beautiful Gold Coast weather.

The restaurant, which also features a 16-seat private dining room, is open for dinner five days a week from 5.30pm Tue-Sat, and is also available for group bookings.

Cucina Vivo offers an Italian menu with traditional favourites as well as inspired interpretations of the classics. The centrepiece of the Mediterranean-inspired restaurant is a two-metre long wood-fired oven, with Jupiters’ own pizzaiolo at the helm.

I got 3 cannolis for the same price as his dessert and the size I have to agree was absolutely pitiful!! He does not want to return, he had to eat when we got home

Previously I have had a more mature man who has worked in the restaurant for ages. This time I had someone young who probably has not been working as a wait person for long or been trained well. Our food was amazing as always though. I would recommend booking as this restaurant does get busy.
