Uccello (means “bird”in Italian) is a hidden rooftop bar at the Ivy Pool bar and nightclub.It is a cozy venue with traditional and contemporary Italian feel to it, overlooking the pool side area of the famous Ivy rooftop bar.It is not widely known since it is more hidden that the other restaurants in the area, but it’s more and more becoming popular for business lunches and fancy dinner outings with a lovely homely feel.
Uccello is famous for their exceptional selection of antipasti and their wine collection, not to mention they use freshest produce and inspiration from different places all over the Italy.
The wine and champagne collection is huge, as i mentioned, they can also create amazing cocktails. On my last visit we’ve had La Vigna di Sarah 2014, a beautiful light Prosecco.
Followed by antipasti of Prosciutto di Parma, fig, balsamic, cravero parmesan ($26), just as good as meat cuts from Italian county side, very fresh and decadent.
My most favourite entree out of them all is Split Yamba prawns with chili and parsley prepared on wood fire ($34). Oh my god, this is to die for! If you love seafood and chilly, you absolutely must try this. So gentle with an extra kick to it, entrees just do not get better that this!
Another great seafood antipasti option is Octopus with chickpea puree and witlof ($26), very soft octopus with a bit of spice. It is very delicate and delicious.
They will make a vegetarian option also, if you request. A must have vegetarian entree is a five way squash. Which is literally just that, five different types of squash with a beautiful dressing on a side of hummus and tomatoes that every vegetarian/vegan would enjoy.
Let’s not forget about oysters.
Coming to your mains, the fish of the day is highly recommended if you are full from all the antipasti and would like something light and very fresh. For obvious reasons, fish of the day constantly changing but what ever it is it will literally melt in you mouth. It will come with delicious eggplant salad on the side.
And again for vegetarians and vegans Uccello makes amazing pasta dish, full of vegetables, herbs and spices, very Italian in deed!
Burrawong chicken with Romano field peppers, guanciale and parsley ($42) is cooked to an absolute perfection. Chicken was definitely my main of choice.
Uccello has a separate steak menu, cooked as you like it and done to perfection. For lovers of heavy meals try a Bangalow pork belly with glazed pork neck and wood fire grilled plums ($46)
When choosing a side dish you may want to consider Sautéed sebago in duck fat and rosemary ($11) which is basically a dish of potatoes, but oh my god that duck fat will blow your mind! Done in finest Italian tradition!
And as of dessert, here are three amazing options for you:
First one being Zokoko dark chocolate mousse with mascarpone sabayon and espresso granita ($18), i must warn you it has a very strong coffee taste to it, so if you are not a coffee drinker or do not enjoy the taste or smell of – keep away. Second is deliciously sour lemon tart with vanilla cream ( not ice cream, unfortunately) ($16). And third is my all time favourite – Raspberry sorbet with salted and sugar almond ($17) very refreshing and perfect to end your meal with and cleanse your palette. Also suitable for vegetarians.
I must say Uccello is perfect for any occasion be it a friendly dinner, business lunch, family gathering or a hot date. If you would like to impress someone with an amazing dining experience and stunning poolside view surrounded by palm tree and attractive people – make a booking at Uccello! I have been with friends and family and we all love it here so much!
