Buon Ricordo Restaurant Review: Channeling a fine Neapolitan ristorante, Buon Ricordo has been charming visitors for decades. While the building hints of Italia, it gives no indication as to what awaits beyond its doors. The place has carved out a faithful clientele, and they come to enjoy chef-owner Armando Percuoco’s “la vera cucina,” which he translates as “unabashedly true Italian cuisine,” and it’s not unusual to see the toque bounding out of the kitchen to greet guests. The menu’s signature dish of fettuccine tossed at the table with truffled egg keeps people returning, as does the rabbit stuffed with spinach and baby snapper baked al cartoccio. Those in the know anticipate finishing their meal with the feather-light apple mille mele (a thousand slices) or at least a selection of Italian and Australian cheeses.
