My second visit to this restaurant and i wasnt disappointed both times. Albeit being a small restaurant with no outside area, it offers surprisingly excellent food. The fried calamari starters were perfect and the rib eye main course was cooked to perfection. Slightly on the high side for casual dining but exceedingly worth every penny. Would highly recommend to anyone.

I hadn't been to La Cuccagna for a little while and was blown away by the new menu! The food tasted delicious, the service was impeccable, just as it always was, and the atmosphere

Came across this restaurant as we took a stroll down a side road to get to the seafront. We enjoyed a pleasant 2 course meal.I had pasta stuffed with cheese – they were an unusal shape – essentially tubes of pasta filled with cheese and twisted at either end, so a bit like a sweet. I am thinking if I... More

My husband and I visited last week. My pizza was OK but very difficult to cut, even with a steak knife! The veal Milanese was overcooked with too much breading and very little veal. Once the food was served, the staff had very little interest. It took nearly 20 minutes for our plates to be cleared. It seems to be... More

Another place we found by walking around. Tucked away in a side street, another family run restaurant where the food is top notch! Initially we ordered pizza for take away & came back another day for their pasta. Service was good and the food was the reason we came back. We highly recommend it!

La Cuccagna is a great restaurant offering mainly italian dishes which has been around in the same family for many years. The locals frequent it often which is always a good sign. The place is nicely decorated, the food always fresh and nicely prepared, and the service excellent.

Very nice place with summum but relax atmosphere. The menu is simple with good dishes and variety : classic and original but not too much. I take a pizza the seasoning and vegetables are good, fresh and with quality. The staff are very professional and polite. But the water is very expensive please change that. The wine card is full...
