I have dined at Cucina Italiana many times over the years, from the very beginning. I went to the restaurant recently and noticed that something was not right, the feel was not the same and it was missing the real impact of an Italian chef and an Italian touch. I decided to go back and try it again and still... More

Our favourite food would be Italian and the food here is far and away the best I've had worldwide including Italy. I don't know what it was but it was just unbelievably tasty and gorgeous. We arrived on a sat night and hadn't booked. Luckily we got a table and boy I was glad we did. If you get the... More

Didn’t know about the place before but was in Killarney with friends, fancied some Italian and saw the good reviews on Tripadvisor so came here. Was not disappointed. Our waitress was so welcoming, helpful, funny and most importantly very knowledgeable about the food especially as one of our party had a gluten intolerance. Food was amazing. Would go as far...

This is the third or fourth time I've eaten here over the last few years. Killarney is a wonderful place, but the prices are extortionate, think €16 for chicken goujons or nuggets for those in the know. Or Irish Stew for €17. Saw a three course menu that had stuffed chicken on it and bread pudding for €36 - horrid... More

It was our friends turn to pick a restaurant and they selected Cucina Italiana, which I had selected based on TripAdvisor reviews - what a nice coinicidence. I can't say much about the ambiance since one of the group had a leg injury making stair steps awkward so we reserved the table for 6 immediately inside the door and did... More

We're looking for a place to eat with two small children. Walked in and as soon as she seen the double buggy she himmed and hawed. We got a bad vibe so left and found a lovely restaurant around the corner

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

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.
