Balducci at the V & A Waterfront offers an unrivaled menu of simple, everyday home cooked Italian dishes that reflect the most traditional elements of food and culinary styles.
Our simple Italian home cooked food is prepared in a relaxed and restorative style, whilst at the same time being creative, traditional and affordable.
Nearly 21 years ago our vision was to build a “once off” cutting edge Designer Restaurant that told a story about our passion and love for what we do.
We commissioned world renown Architect Stefan Antoni. After traveling with Stefan to Italy, he created an architectural masterpiece that encompassed Ian’s vision which was his dream.
The restaurant won several awards for its design and was built in solid cherry wood and was described all over the world as “Understated European Elegance”.
Just due to the sheer volumes of customers that that visited the restaurant over the years, in 2015 we closed for three months to refurbish and in keeping up with Stefan’s unique world wide award winning cutting edge design, the restaurant was upgraded.
We hope that u will have a memorable occasion in our very special restaurant that we and our team are so passionate about.
Balducci has a simple philosophy; to provide a memorable experience by redefining the essence of good home cooked food and continually upping the standards with its slick understated European elegance, stunning views and gracious service in our trendy yet stylish environment.
The emphasis is on providing good quality food that is simple, fresh, filled with passion and served in style.
To our 21st Birthday in 2017 and your health and celebration in our restaurant!
