That's Amore!
Unica Cucina e Caffe, Capel Sound

'When the moon hits your eye' and you are sitting with friends and family under an ancient tree facing the bay on a warm summer's night, you may think you are with Dean Martin in old Napoli. In fact, you are breathing in the best of Italian culture, cuisine, pasta and vino in the iconic Unica Cucina restaurant on Esplanade, beachside near Rosebud, just over an hour from Melbourne.
Unica Cucina is the embodiment of all that's good about Italy and owes much to the soul of its owner and manager, Michelle Loielo, who has built its enviable reputation for great service and outstanding food over the last eight years. Ready to move on to new challenges and ventures Michelle is passing on this wonderful restaurant to a new owner who can build on its legacy while exploiting its potential for greater things.
The restaurant can accommodate up to 160 people in a charming indoor and outdoor garden setting and is currently trading six evenings per week (closed Mondays) and three lunchtimes (Friday, Saturday and Sundays). Turnover is very healthy, and the restaurant is particularly 'smashed' during the summer period from December through to Easter.
Pasta is highly featured on the menu, complemented by a wide variety of local Peninsula and Italian regional wines. It is particularly famous for its signature dish 'Unica Marinara', a handmade tagliatelle cooked with seafood including, but not limited to, crab, mussels, lobster meat, calamari, vongole and diced fish and tied together in a seafood bisque!

The restaurant was noted in the Australian Good Food Guide in March this year and has many fans, including former health minister, Greg Hunt.

Surprisingly, given its extensive footprint and location, rent is a very reasonable $3,300 (approx.) per month (including GST) with 2 years + 3 year lease. In addition to the owner, staff are limited to one full-time chef, one full-time FOH and five part-time casuals (depending on demand). There is a full commercial kitchen, cool room, internal and external storage facilities and freezers, as well as two male/female bathrooms and security cameras.
So, if you are dreaming about 'La Vita Bella' here's your chance to fulfill your destiny by snapping up this beautiful restaurant before someone else gets in first. If you would like more information, or to arrange an inspection of the premises and discuss the business with the owner, please call Alan Maguire of Maguires Real Estate.

Price: $250,000 plus SAV (Approx. $5,000) including all plant, furniture and equipment and free training and assistance period
