Authentic Italian Food, good service

Worth a visit. Great pizza and pasta although a little expensive. In saying that you are at the JW Marriott and everything is expensive. Probably the best restaurant on site there

I asked my friend to take me to a nice place and we drove all the way to this Restaurant. The Restaurant itself is nice but lacks atmosphere and obviously we got the feeling of being in a normal chain restaurant, after we looked at the menu we decided to go for Pizza which was nice and price wise was...

Came to eat here on recommendation- wish we had not. First, bread basket arrived soaked in olive oil, totally greasy and unappetizing. Next, mushroom soup for 400 baht- quite ok and good bruschetta for my wife as starters. Main course- lasagne - probably one of the worst I have eaten in Thailand (never mind Italy). We had a spaghetti as... More

Dear David 728, Thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback. Cucina is very popular with our guests for the simple, authentic Italian food but unfortunately something went amiss this time. Please accept our chef's sincere apologies. She is very passionate about her food and it does pain her to hear this. We hope to be able to... More

My family ate here 3 times during our stay. Yes, it is more expensive than the few places in Turtle Village, but it's no more than what we pay at an average Italian restaurant in Houston. We had their pizza many times (including ordering it from the pool bar) and it's a great thing-crust pizza. We also had lasagna, gnocchi... More

Average food and fairly seafood heavy menu. Best dish was the minestrone soup which had lots of fresh vegetables. Other food was decidedly average. Some staff were very friendly, others indifferent. In an almost empty restaurant at 22:00 it was hard to get the attention of the staff to order deserts. Much older crowd than other restaurants on this resort.... More

A (relatively) reasonably priced restaurant at the JW Marriott, this place makes a mean thin-crust pizza and has indoor and outdoor balcony seats overlooking the palm-tree lined main pool area. The serving sizes are fairly big (two pizzas and a pasta dish should do it for a family of 4), making this a relatively economical option compared to the pricier... More

we had the worst service of all of Marriotts facilities at Cucina, rude front of house hostess showed us the door to wait outside because we were 5 minutes early, her supervisor and ,manager to whom we complained were just paying lipservice with their apologies. Food is not worthy of the price they charge.

Though this was closed for renovation, the food at Marriott Cafe came from the same chef. The vegetarian food was not what we are used to in some better places in Singapore. We remember that even during our previous stay we were not happy with the food at Cucina and my wife told me that we will not even bother... More

We ate here many times during our stay at Phuket Beach Club. The staff at this restaurant are simply exceptional- so friendly and efficient. We spent Christmas and New Years here. The Pizza comes highly recommended. A must visit if in Mai Khao.
