Well, really not impressed. When compared with other restaurants with the same proposal, there is nothing really new or creative. Anyway, the location is good, the atmosphere is also nice.

Cucina is located on the second floor of the hotel. The menu selection is pretty basic and limited, however, the dishes have been tasty. Cucina is not competing with the top Italians in town but it's always a safe bet.

Ordered a pizza, waited an hour. Nothing arrived. Walked out and mentioned it politely to the staff. They did not seem bothered. Other tables were served before me and my custom did not seem valued. Disappointing as I was looking for somewhere to take business visitors, guests from overseas and business groups.

The only reason I'm rating this an average and not poor, is because the food itself is great and very tasty. The promotion they run during the day is really worth the money. Excellent meal.
