We were there as a group of friends with children. The environment was lovely. The service was quick and attentive. Most importantly the food taste awesome, and the prices were normal for Swiss standards. I strongly suggest it, but don't forget to make a reservation since it seemed pretty busy.

They do make a very good wood oven pizza, if it is the best of Zurich can be debated ;) I also like Don Leone (great atmosphere) or even Taverne. It is rather busy and especially if you like to sit outside in the summer reservations are recommended. Service was very kind and attentive, special requests like additional toppings are... More

Good food and speedy, friendly service. Many locals seem to eat here. Try the curry pasta dish, "inferno." Very inventive.

Cucina offers a large variety of italian food. Pizza is at its best from wood oven - thin and crispy. Lovely italian wines and nice location.

When we arrived the place was full and were still seated inside (pavement seating is available) and the place was full. It is a little cramped (too many tables inside) but a great atmosphere with attentive staff. Food was good. We (corporate party) had various pizza/meat/fish dishes and the request to leave out(squid) was without question not a problem. Half... More

I have been in Cucina twice and was always more than satisfied with the pizza. Actually with some few other restaurants, I consider Cucina one of the best italian restaurants in town. The service is good and special requests for pizza are accepted. The atmosphere in the restaurant is cozy and charming. Their wine card offers plenty of excellent wines.... More

One very nice waiter, seemed to be in charge and care. Greyish hair and earring. Food was not good. Pizza was just average, service except for man was terrible. Overpriced for what it is, and not exactly the nicest part if Zurich. Was excited to go, ended up disappointed ... Taking Tums.

Went here with two local friends. They each ordered pasta dishes (one was rabbiata, I forgot what the other was) and I ordered pizza pescatore. When the dishes came, on my pizza was -- nothing! Nary a piece of fish or anything, just tomato sauce. I asked the waiter if this was really pescatore and he shook his head and... More

Their "Pizza Italia" is absolutely delicious and one of the best pizzas you can get in Zürich while not the cheapest. Their service is average while the atmosphere is relaxed. In my opinion, so far their pizzas are only matched by Grottino 77 in Aemtlerstrasse.
