Delicious pizza's and great atmosphere

La Cucina has delicious - I repeat: delicious - pizza. I went there twice during my trip and every time I was surprised about their way of approaching guests and promoting their special meals. You pay a good price as well so definitely a place to go to when you visit Oxford.

I went here for a meal because everywhere else on Cowley road was closed and was very happily surprised. The food was amazing, the wine which the waiter recommended was so tasty and the staff were very kind. Will definitely be going back next time I'm in Oxford!

This place looks great, I was expecting nice food and this place more than delivered. Our starters were simple yet phenomenal, for not very much money we got huge amounts of lovely bread and great dips. We were already full from the starters but had ordered a pizza each. We were so stuffed but the pizzas were so good we... More

We started going here because we have a toddler who eats very early & La Cucina start serving at 5pm which is just perfect for us. But not only does it open at a good time it also serves yummy Italian food. We've always found the staff to be friendly and the food consistently good. One tip - we like... More

After an hour and a half, I didn't get offered a drink. A single drink. In an hour and a half. Extremely disappointed. I was in a group of 12, 11 other people were asked about a drink, guess they didn't like the look of me. Even when I was sat at the table as she went round and asked... More

This is the kind of place to relax, order a bottle of wine and forget you are on St Clements for an hour or so. The food is pretty standard fare but it's fresh, well cooked and tasty. The atmosphere and service are excellent.

We enjoyed a tasty well prepared meal Service was good. Tables are rather small so that a bit of shuffling of plates and glasses is required. There was a lively atmosphere. We thought that the pasta menu was a little unadventurous, and that the drinks were rather pricey. Am I alone in thinking that £6.95 for a 125ml glass of... More
