Bought a groupon for lunch with the notion of trying something different, and we were not disappointed. The lunch menu offers an assortment of pasta dishes as well as smaller plates for starters. We had the chicken and mushroom pasta, the clam pasta with lime and coriander pesto and spicy Italian sausage with chicken, they were all delicious, you could... More

We've been three times now and each visit gets better..... Staff are very attentive and food is just amazing.... If you think Italian food is pizza and pasta think again...... We are slowly working our way through the menu, it's all fabulous! Noteworthy ...the pasta with walnut sauce, the pork cooked for thirsty six hours, the duck with roast grapes........ More

We dine here often and the food is excellent. The staff are friendly and accommodating and it is a pleasant experience. My only criticism is that it can be rather noisy and would benefit from some soft furnishing to counteract this .One of our favourite Derby restaurants.!

This was our third visit to Cucina, previously with friend, but just with my wife this time, excellent food and staff. We cannot recommend this place enough, we live in Burton but it's well worth the travel.

The food here on offer is probably some of the best Italian food on offer in Derby. What lets Cucina down is the atmosphere, it doesn't really match the quality of the food. The service we received was pretty good and I wouldn't hesitate to come again.

I don't often visit Derby but I must recommend this restaurant. The chefs regularly visit Italy and have considerable knowledge of regional Italian cuisine. The ingredients they use are fresh and of the best quality. I also liked the way they offered traditional dishes with a modern twist. La cucina means cuisine in Italian and Derby is certainly lucky to... More

I found this restaurant on Trip Advisor and decided to try it last night. What an excellent choice the food was superb. The staff all seemed to genuinely want you to have a good time. The prices for both food and wine were reasonable and we will definitely return. The best Sitalian in Derby by far.
