Came for lunch. Great layout with the open kitchen. Clean and good service. I ordered pizza, which was excellent. Restaurant appears to be well looked after with attention to detail.

It's a real... More

Popped in at our son's suggestion after visiting our new grandson at the JR up the road. Very impressed by the staff, the buzz - on a Tuesday evening! - and the food. We'll definitely be back. Thanks!

We were in Oxford for a wedding and had pre-booked this restaurant just off the internet. The restaurant was busy and staff were very welcoming. They gave us a lovely table and sorted drinks straight away. The waitress brought the specials board to the table and explained each meal on it. The food was excellent, served promptly and with a...

Visited La Cucina for the first time last night, and was was impressed by the quick, friendly service, the value for money, and the dishes we had. Two of had wine, a starter to share, a pasta main, and pizza main. Both left very full! Good value for money at less than £35.00 for both of us. Would go again... More

Trying to find a venue suitable for a large group of up to 30 people is always problematic but La Cucina did an excellent job as their party menu choices enabled everyone to find something they were happy with (apart from one elderly American man who did not understand exactly what he had ordered but did end up enjoying it)....
