Great little spot just off the main tourist track. Excellent food and very reasonable prices. Looks and feels like a family concern - warmly welcomed and served.

Love their food. When I was younger I did visit more often, in fact the smaller restaurant next door had a somewhat cosier feeling. Pizza has always been great there.

It's been a while since we dined at La Cuccagna and we were pleased to see that the excellent standard has been maintained. Since our last visit La Cuccagna has added fresh local fish to it's menu. The fresh fish display offered a great selection of really fresh fish.

We had fried calamari as a starter and they were well fried and with a lot of pepper... Spicy but full of flavour. Definitely... More

We both had a pizza and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Service was excellent and the staff friendly. We had a bottle of sparkling rosé which was served perfectly chilled. Recommended.
