A slice of Italy

We had lunch at this restaurant when we stayed at the JW M, Phuket. We ordered penne arabiata and aglio olio along with some bruschetta. The food was excellent. The focaccia bread that came along with the pasta was just fantastic as well. Really - we thought it was a slice of Italy in Thailand. The... read more

We were staying at the JW so decided to give this place a try. The restaurant is very pretty and has outdoor seating. The staff was very attentive, but the price for what you got was horrible. The food was OK but nothing to rave about. Its unfortunate that the resorts feel they have to charge such high prices because... More

Although on the expensive side for Thailand, the food is excellent and varied and the view at sunset is breathtaking.

We were very disappointed with the service and all. Wine took half hour to arrive even you pay like 500 ++ baht per glas for nothing special. Food arrived wrong also. Even they didn't charge for the wrong food, this is not up to a Marriott standard. So all together a disappointment for the expensive prices.

Dear Steelandsilverrobert, Thank you for taking the time for providing feedback on the service in our Cucina Italian Restaurant. Indeed the wines in Thailand are relatively expensive due to the high taxes on the wine as Thailand is a Buddist coutnry where the goverment does not stimulate to drink alcohol. On the other hand there is no excuse for poor... More

Had a lovely meal at Cucina. Made a caprese salad for us which wasn't on the menu and I think the mozzarella was the highlight of the meal. Not that our other food wasn't good but we did have to ask for our ragu to be made hotter as it was a little luke warm and slightly over powered by... More

One of the best Italian restaurant in Phuket. Good services and food! We visited with a big group of 15 people. The restaurant arranged an area for our group of adults and kids at one side of the restaurant. We really enjoyed our time there.

We dined here on our first night at the JW. Even though we did not have a reservation they made space for us and even seated us before the restaurant officially opened, as we had two tired and hungry children.
