Awarded Two Chef Hats - The SMH Good Food Guide 2013-2014
This restaurant is aptly named “good memories,” which is exactly what diners have been taking away from Buon Ricordo since it opened its doors in 1987. Today, waiters in trim white jackets fuss over patrons who sample the glory of classical Italian hospitality and cuisine.

On the corner of Boundary Street and Glenview Lane.

PROFILED BY DE GROOTS MEDIA
From the outside Buon Ricordo looks like most of Paddington; neat, charming and elegant. But as soon as you step over the threshold you are transported into an Italian house. Brick floors, traditional wooden chairs, white-set tables, a fireplace, the familiar manner of the staff and the scents coming from the kitchen tell you so. This is part of the beauty of this celebrated restaurant – it delivers on the promise of inspired, heart-on-the-sleeve cuisine with none of the bravado that might be expected from a restaurant of its calibre (and with two chefs’ hats for three years running we can agree it has plenty of calibre).

Upstairs is a dining area that has a slightly more formal bent. This is partially because it is where the restaurant’s impressive wine cellar is housed – a tempting companion to a night spent feasting on Italian dishes – and partially because it serves as a part-time gallery. Over its 23-year history Buon Ricardo has amassed lots of art (including a painting by the late Fred Cress) which hangs – and stands – proudly around the area. No matter how wonderful, however, the art is likely to lose the fight for your attention when the fare comes from chef Armando Percuoco’s kitchen. On a menu that is sensitive to seasons and produce, you’ll find northern Italian inspired “primi” like fettuccine al tartufovo ( fettuccine with cream and parmesan, topped with a fried truffle egg and tossed at the table) and “secondi” like the ever-popular T-bone (Italian style, of course) and braciolette Reginaldo (a dish of crumbed veal rolled with spinach, nutmeg and parmesan that was named after a customer).

Buon Ricordo - User Reviews

Veronica Mihajlovic:

We dined at Buon Ricordo for a special occasion on Friday night. Every time I have visited Buon Ricordo it has been absolutely magnificent! The food is fine, perfectly presented and delicious. The wines offered are marvellous. The waiting staff are excellent. Armando is a master chef who is gracious, welcoming and a charming host. Thank you Buon Ricordo for the beautiful memories.review  03/02/2013
