Cucina Italiana is a truly unique concept operated by Bahrain Family Leisure Company (BFLC). With an unshakable passion for the Italian lifestyle from the cuisine to the décor, this bistro brings class and style to casual dining.
To mark the most romantic day of the year, there’s live music and a special four-course menu including Zuppa di Zucca, a creamy butternut squash soup with chicken meatballs; mixed green salad with sliced pepperoni; Osso Buco E Gremolata, slow-cooked veal osso buco on a bed of saffron risotto, with mushroom, asparagus and grimulatta; or Branzino Col Risotto Alla Zaffron E Funghi, pan fried sea bass on a bed of saffron risotto with mushroom, asparagus and lemon butter sauce; and, for dessert, Torta al Formaggion Con Fragola E Mirtillo, homemade strawberry and cranberry cheesecake. While the dishes can be ordered separately, there is a special Valentine’s Dinner Package priced at BD45 including a bottle of grape, with table decorations of flowers and candles.
Cucina Italiana takes great pride in delivering the highest quality menu prepared with only the freshest and finest hand-picked ingredients, making the dishes nothing less than delicious. Every mouthful is made from fresh vegetables, succulent meat, hand-tossed dough and superior-quality tomato sauce and served with genuine Italian passion, bursting with the true flavours of Italy. This eatery is a place you can walk into with your family, colleagues and friends and have a delicious dish of pasta, the finest and tastiest wood fired pizza, drinks or a superb premium espresso experience.
Since it launched in the Kingdom in 2001, under the umbrella of BFLC, Bennigan’s has offered diners a unique combination of American cuisine coupled with a special brand of Irish hospitality, providing the ideal place to spend time with friends and family relaxing in the upbeat, fun atmosphere.
Widely renowned, with locations around Bahrain, Bennigan’s in Al Safir Hotel, Juffair, has a choice of delightful meals to suit every palate and is open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The menu features something for everyone – great-sized portions, taste and value for money guaranteed. Bennigan’s is the perfect place to blow off steam, catch a game, celebrate or just chill with friends and enjoy the live music. To bring that atmosphere closer to home, Bennigan’s home delivery offers a full menu direct to your doorstep. And recently BFLC has opened a new branch of Bennigan’s in Amwaj Islands offering the same hearty portions, home-cooked taste and signature dishes, such as The County Clare Sampler – a combination of nachos, Hogan’s Egg Rolls and Dubliner quesadilla – or the Big Irish gourmet burger.
Both Bennigan’s and Cucina Italiana have regular special offers. And Cucina is known for its annual Italian Masterchef competition which sees enthusiastic amateur foodies battling it out for the famous black apron.
For the future, there are big plans with BFLC looking to expand and develop new concepts and offer additional services across the Kingdom.
