It was my first experience in this restaurant and it was one of the best...we went upstairs which was very cosy and traditional. I tried ravioli ricotta and a bit of lasagna. Appetizers are amazing as well as its traditional ice cream which comes with strawberry syrup. Enjoy and bon appetit!

Unable to find restaurants open at 4pm on Saturday in Dubai, I stumbled upon Cucina at JW Marriott. Pleasantly surprised that the decor was good and the food here delicious! Prices were also not excessively high. Will come again if I'm craving Italian!

We had dinner here over the weekend (Sep). Ordered one pizza and one seafood pasta. Overall the taste was good. Price was around 200 AED in total. Ambiance of the place was good. Would come back again when i am back in Dubai

I have been frequenting Cucina for over 10 years now. I have tried many Italian restaurants in Dubai but find myself coming back to Cucina. While the menu is a simple Italian menu, what I think Cucina is famous for, is that its food feels like it is cooked in your mom's kitchen - it has a homey feel to... More

We went there for a friends birthday. The food was good, I felt well priced, and the service was great. They even sang to my friend for his birthday.

It was the only restaurant open at the J.W. Marriott at lunch time so we went in, even if , following my preliminary enquiry, they do not have Italian chefs in the kitchen, which is always a bad omen. " The chefs learned from an Italian", was the promo. In fact, the whole food served here is an imitation of... More

I tried it twice for dinner and for lunch. Quality is superb. What is more interesting is the price. For lunch you tend to pay almost half. Lunch speciality dishes are at 49aed. Choose your wine for 62 to 75aed. Ask for captain Ramzy.

Was in the need for some serious meat and knew of the JW Steakhouse at the Marriott. Arrived early after walking the Souks and was gasping for beer. Whilst early and empty, the Steakhouse refused me entry because of open toed shoes (sandals) and suggested I try Cucinas where the dress code is more relaxed and I could order from... More
