Great welcome

We were welcomed and dealt with in an extremely friendly manner. The food was of good quality and reasonably priced as were the drinks. Would certainly re-visit.

This cafe bar looked reasonable for an afternoon drink and cake with its open terrace but sadly I was mistaken. The carrot cake we ordered was decent, though nothing special and the drinks once again were OK. The two stars I'm giving is related to the service which was absolutely appalling. From having to repeat the order to having to... More

Was staying in a hotel opposite so just popped in on the off chance. Glad I did. The restaurant was very busy and we just managed to get one of the last tables. The menu was varied and our order was taken fairly quickly. The food was ample, hot and very good. I know that other people have criticised the... More

I booked a table for breakfast for my sons 2nd birthday before a trip to the sea life centre. It was one of the only places nearby I could find serving a decent breakfast menu. And what a lucky find! Our party started as an 8 but more family arrived and the staff quickly made our table bigger with no... More

Reserved a 7pm table based on the reviews, then waited 20 minutes before we were given menus and still no drink order. This should've been the warning for us for what was to come! We had noticed that no one in the restaurant had food, seemed to be lots of waiters but no food coming out of the kitchen. The... More

We waited 30 minutes before even being given a drinks menu then another hour before our starters arrived. It was 2 and a half hours before our main meals arrived. The staff did not explain why we waited so long and made little apology for it. We left without paying. Very disappointing.

its several years since I ate at this place, looks like food comes out of a microwave and a small pizza oven, but food was actually excellent......apart from the bland pizza I ordered artichoke starter which was ok no lamb stew for mains, which was excellent. Guess I would not go back again, but that's my opinion. For a last... More

We were in Cucina with our son, the staff was very kind and this place is definitely child-friendly. They have kid menu my son liked the "pasta bolognese" :). Our meals were good and tasty. Nice atmosphere and good price-value ratio.

I'm always a little dubious of Italian restaurants that have Goodfellas, Scarface or other stereotypical posters adorning the place (and the theme gets a little schizophrenic as you take them all in), but this is far from the Italian-by-numbers red and green paper napkins crowd...so don't let it put you off. An early evening family dinner was above average: lovely... More

Food was very nice (although my Husband thought the pizza could have been bigger!), very friendly staff. The only negative; there is only one WC and by the one of us visited it, it wasn't a nice experience!! Staff should keep close eye on condition.

Staying in Southbank

Neighborhood Profile
Southbank
Big time attractions such as the London Eye and a thriving theatre scene (compliments of the National Theatre and the Young Vic) are but a few of the reasons that Southbank is such a collectively cherished part of town. With plenty of family friendly activities and venues lined up along a pedestrianized river bank between Westminster Bridge and Waterloo Bridge, visitors can always expect a casual and festive atmosphere. On top of all the fun stuff to do at Southbank is the opportunity to simply sit back and admire photo-op views of iconic landmarks like Parliament and St Paul's Cathedral, just on across the Thames.
