Outstanding!

Can't say enough good things about this restaurant. The food was fantastic and the service was great. Some of the best Lamb Chops I have ever had anywhere. There were six of us and everyone raved about their food. A couple returned few nights later.

A strangely designed Italian restaurant with tables in little corners on different levels. Not easy to serve in or negotiate as a diner. Food a little pretentious but staff welcoming and helpful

My wife and I dined here last week. This is the second time I have been to Killarney in the last few years. Cucina Italiana is fantastic. This is real food. Very quaint place, maybe 8 tables. Food is authentic and homemade. Try the eggplant parmesan…wow!!! Service can be a bit slow, but the food is well worth it.

Amazing food and excellent staff. Very accommodating for gluten free needs. Recommended to many others that we met in the town. Would go back there many times over. Food was simply amazing!!!! Can't wait to return.

We stumbled on this tiny restaurant in an alley by accident and were lucky enough to score a window seat without a reservation. Everyone after us was turned away. The food was so good and beautifully presented. Our waiter was great to talk with and gave us perfect service. We would definitely go again but make a reservation for sure.

We enjoyed a lovely meal at Cucina Italiana. We shared a rocket salad to start - more than enough for the two of us. We then had the beef fillet, which was very good, and the scallops, which were also wonderful. We finished by sharing the chocolate mousse with burnt orange sauce, also very tasty. And, one of us is... More

We had a really great meal at Cucina Italiana. Some have noted the portions are small and the space is cramped but we didn't experience either. In fact, there was more than enough (delicious) food and the tables are spaced far enough apart that you can't really overhear others. The service was very good and friendly. I'd definitely go back... More
