I will start with this dessert that was simply awesome on that day. Must be tasted. The ambiance was good. Variety of wine was limited but the overall dinner experience was fabulous. Please remember that this a restaurant from Hyatt, so be prepared for big budget meals. On this note, I must tell that it's a bit overpriced restaurant but... More

The food here was great, slightly overpriced... but good none the less... I was here for a business meet... but otherwise the place might be slightly out of the way.... primarily Italian, it has little variety... but excels in whatever the menu offers.

The Hyatt has all the ambience of the 5* plus and if you really do need an infusion of western food in lovely surroundings this is it. Walking distance of the Kim Lawn guest house you can spend the cash you saved by staying at Kim Lawn on a delicious buffet and a fresh lime soda!

This Italian restaurant is based in th Hyatt hotel. Nice setting, open kitchen, chairs are a bit uncomfortable. Decent varied menu, even some beef dishes, limited wine list, expensive for the quality. Great tiramsu! Service was good, not spectacular, but this is India inefficiency. If I was to choose one restaurant in the hotel, it would be the Indian restaurant.

Nice Food Service little unprofessional - perhaps lack of experienced hands. Why Black Dog is not available ? It's now costlier than Black Label -- and perhaps tastes better too!!!

Enjoyed dinner at La Cucina more about 5 times during my 2 week stay at the Hyatt. The special lamb and wine paring menu during the first week of my stay was amazing. Some of the best lamb dished I have ever had. The regular menu and wine list is extensive. The waiters and managers were very attentive and knowledgeable.... More

Usually when you go for Continental cuisine in an Indian 5-star you expect the best of the best. In my experience, this has happened several times with Italian food, most recently with the room service of the Leela Gurgaon, who served us totally flawless (and delicious) spaghetti carbonara. Compared to these standards, I must say we were clearly underwhelmed by... More

The staff is simply excellent here. Half the days I stayed in Hyatt, I had food in La Cucina only. They offered us food as per our choices and even changed it if it wasn't according to our taste buds. They surprised us with different "out of the menu" dishes and cocktails/mocktails. Great Italian restaurant. One of the best in... More
