We absolutely loved this restaurant. We ate here after a long day of touring and just wanted a relaxed good meal. The food was fantastic. The house wine was very good. The restaurant is modern and the menu is contemporary…no spaghetti here. We loved it and highly recommend.

My wife and I went there on the recommendation of our concierge. After reading the reviews, a few claimed it had the best lasagna they'd ever eaten. Now, my wife recently had the best lasagna of her life not on our honeymoon in Italy, but in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. This, however, was not lasagna. It was beef stroganoff with (very... More

This little place is easy to miss if you don't know where to look, but it definitely worthwhile to seek out. The dining room was minimalist and very clean. I had a risotto main that was incredibly creamy and flavorful. Service was very attentive, but the dining room didn't have that many people in it. It is on the expensive... More

This busy restaurant was hopping on a Sunday night and our group of 16 split up to 3 tables to get seated quicker. The rack of lamb was the most raved about dish, but some said the same mfor their pasta or fish dish. The appetizers were well prepared and tasty and the group even stayed to try the various... More

We call in not reading the review before hand and what a great surprise. Fresh tasty and cooked to perfection. The portions were just right. Not a bad word to say. Two very happy customers.

This was an out of the way place in Killarney that we wanted to try. Just a hole in the wall, really, but good food and a cute location. It was rather pricey, but the food was good.

I looked at my last review for Cucina posted 2 years ago and notice, the same problem I had then, I had tonight. Food very good, staff very good, service slow but really very, very good and I don't expect it to be fast. If I was in a restaurant in Italy, this is exactly how I would be served... More

This place is so good!!!!!! We had been traveling through Ireland for 10 days and were craving Italian. We came across this little place and it totally belongs in Italy!! It was absolutely amazing!

If you want to try some non Irish food this is the place! We had a reservation, were promptly seated and greeted by our waiter. He was very friendly and took excellent care of our table. We had the crostini appetizer, it was delicious. The lasagna is as good as any I have had, even in Italy! Decent wine list... More

We looked forward to our 2 night break in Killarney with the highlight of dining in Cucina Italina. We were quite disappointed with the menu choice and the prices. My partner had beef carpaccio and I had scallop and crab broth both of which were excellent. My partners risotto was good but for a small vegetarian portion was over priced.... More
