We travelled from Birmingham with my aunty to see her sister. They had a special offer on for lunch including small glad of wine for £7.50 Good we thought. Service was good but the flat bad was pretty dry. Didn't complain as it was quite cheap. Then we ordered another small glass. Same wine but a smaller one than before.... More

Have been here before and really enjoyed it the last time. There was a slight misunderstanding over our starters we had come for our Christmas work meal and had wanted to get platters to share the message was relayed and missed so we either got some money back or had our starters after our main. The group went with the... More

Came in for lunch I had the red mullet which was pretty good, a little dry round the edges but a fillet that was not stingy, without being enormous either. I got lucky and had new potatoes and green beans with mine but the veg on offer for other dishes was a little minimalist. I had a bit of someone's... More

Visited here on a Monday night without a booking. Very busy but still managed to get a table for the 3 of us. Great service, attentive without being intrusive. Lovely starter and excellant Venison caserole from the specials board. Another wonderful experience here.

Lovely warm atmosphere and beautiful food. If you enjoy Italian food you will love it here. It was just outside of the centre but easy to find and very reasonably priced.

Good service, away from the tourist oxford.The pizza was unbelievable! Don't miss the pana cotta neither. The only downside would be that it was a bit noisy, but nothing too disturbing. Definitely a great spot to go.

There comes a time in the life of an Italian expat - and it might come very quickly - when you just want to eat food as you know it, even if you would never admit it. At such times, La Cucina is the place to go. You wouldn't eat stereotypical dishes but real Italian food made with authentic Italian... More

great to be in an Italian restaurant with true Italians inside and doing Italian cuisine.... From antipasti to dessert all has been perfect! Not only fresh food quality but also service and flexibility to accommodate a table of six on short term. I 100% recommend the place, the 6 of us were delighted and the price was not a bad... More
