Very good Italian style restauramt

This was a very good restaurant. Food was nice. A small hiccup. The waiters thought that we were sharing the dishes due to a miscommunication and so they were initially spread to come one at a time. This was quickly overcome.

They must have an Italian chef and/or excellent training, this really feels Italian. Good food, service still some more work as the food.

This is situated in the Hyatt Regency Hotel and serves you good Italian food. I asked them to make a customized vegetable and cheese pasta, which they did nicely. The serving staff member was nice and kind as well. But, the cost is slightly on the higher side.

La Cucina was always supposed to be a great Italian Resto, but on this visit I think te food was far superior than previous visits. Very Good service - rather excellent, unlike most upmarket restaurants in this city. The Ricotta spinach ravioli was superb and the sauteed asparagus salad was great too. They can definitely consider a larger wine list.

I use to take my friends when ever we would like to eat Italian food only to this restaurant in Kolkata. Yesterday we went along with our foreigner friend but some how we did not like the quality of service and the taste. Also we returned one dish because they made a wrong but the gesture was not good .

I have travelled extensively in India, the food they served was different and so tasty. The staff took time to ensure that the dishes chosen were right for my appetite and preference.

Service as well as food was amazing. The fact that it was just below our hotel made it easy to access. I would give a very good rating for the ambiance, food and service.

The food is fabulous and the staff is fantastic. The open kitchen works well and you can smell the pizzas in the wood-fire oven all over the restaurant. I love the food , and all of it is great so I suggest you go with your favourites and choose what you like. I particularly enjoyed the salads and gnocchi!

Went there during Restaurant Week India (RWI) wherein restaurants offer a set three course meal for Rs 900++ per head. Was happy to see that they were offering their full menu from where one could choose the three dishes and not a separate restricted menu which is normally the case for RWI. So no dish was off limits and since... More
