Majdi and his Cucina

La Cucina is a must in town. The owner is a very smart person who tries to make you feel happy the moment you enter his restaurant. And you actually will be happy. The service is perfect, the atmosphere is exquisite especially when the Aquarium is lighten up. Good wine, good Italian cuisine, the... read more

I hosted my wedding there and I wish I went somewhere else. The food is stale and mediocre at best. It is definitely overpriced. The inside is dated and needs an immediate facelift. The garden is nice but due to on going issues with neighbors, the restaurant is not able to play music out doors. They will not say anything... More

Yes we heard a lot about this restaurant. People are raving about it lately. It is so lovely and cosy but at the same time perfect for having a fine dinner, with its glamorous decor. Unfortunately that was it for us.. we simply could not try their cuisine. We were a group of 4 with a baby. We made a... More

Went there on a Saturday afternoon, it was very quite but nice. Loved the decor and the atmosphere. We weren't hungry so they brought us this very nice and fresh dish (Smoked salmon, avocado, mozzarella, asparagus, tomato slices, orange and lettuce) refreshing and light! Juices are fresh and nice. We also had some tempura shrimps. Staff were friendly and nice.

During a long trip through multiple countries I ate Italian food in many places, including areas of Spain that have nailed fine Italian cuisine. But the best Italian food in the entire trip and that I've ever eaten, was at La Cucina in Amman. The restaurant is a lovely setting with brilliant staff who make you feel very at home... More

Absolutely beautiful food and spectacularly trained staff. If it's still on the menu I'd recommend the Australian Angus steak. The best I've had and I'm Australian! Do yourself a favour and allow some time after the meal for an aperitif and/or a cigar in the separate cosy lounge bar. It made me feel like a guest in a rich uncle's... More
