A bit disappointing as Italian food should be prepared fresh. The menu is huge & its impossible to prepare all this food fresh & from scratch. Probably best to eat the pizzas.

Cacuina has the ability to be really authentic but the chef is just not producing enough real Italian food. Fresh Pasta /to be found in the Lasagna - disappointing! I chose the Ostrich Jumbalaya which is more like stroganoff. No bruschetta - Mozarella Cheese to be seen let along fresh basil. Deserts also disappointing. The restaurant is great but not... More

Lots of options for breakfast with different pastries, hot breakfast and cereals. Lunchtime is the best time as there are less crowds and can really enjoy your meal. Highly recommend the lamb korma and chicken malay curry. Dinner is busy and is best to make a reservation.

Poor choice and quality of food for breakfast and not a great choice at night. Staff did not seem to care and service was slow. Tables never set up correctly - would not recommend or go back

I went to Cucina for the Sunday lunch to entertain my visiting in-laws. The buffet was very impressive, there was variety of salads the seafood salad was very tasty. the desserts were exceptional with alot to choose from. The atmosphere and vibe was very nice for entertaining. I do recommend it to everyone.
