Cucina 837 at Salena to open October 2019

Wednesday, September 25, 2019

1 MONTH!!! After what feels like an eternity of planning, building and prepping, we are so close to opening next month.

We’ve been watching the building going up on site since March and it’s been so exciting watching it take shape. Even if we have had to suffer through listening to the construction sounds for months, we know the beautiful stonework surrounding most of the façade will be worth it.



With plans for a huge welcoming outdoor area encompassing cosy furniture and relaxed picnic areas on the grass, we know it’s going to be packed with people all summer. As for when it starts to cool down, with a spacious 50-person capacity inside, and 60-person capacity enclosed outside with blinds and heaters, you’ll be comfortable and toasty-warm all year round.

Now for the important stuff, wine and food!


We have signed on our amazing Italian chef Vincenzo Gallo, local Riverlanders may know him from his gorgeous converted camper trailer come food truck ‘Italian Food Made with Love’. We will be serving up freshly made pasta and wood oven pizzas alongside traditional antipasto platters.

As for wines, well you know we have a large selection of wines in our repertoire; from crisp whites, rose`s and sparkling to keep you cool in summer, through to rich and Moorish reds and tawny’s to warm your soul in winter, the hardest thing will be trying to decide what to have.

On track to open at the end of October 2019, keep an eye out on our website for further details.
