We had a pizza and pasta and both dishes tasted good, but we were disappointed that they couldn't serve both dishes at the same time. My pizza was cold when the pasta finally arrived. Pasta was also nothing special. The view over the sea is nice, but you're still sitting on cheap plastic chairs.

We've been in Cebu 2 weeks and our meal here was truly the best by far!!! Real cheese! We're not even going to eat any other place. I've been so hungry for decent food, loosing weight like crazy. We had pizza and pasta and ice cream. Everything was excellent! Pricy for Philipines but cheap compared to Western Countries. So happy... More

I had a late lunch at Marina Cucina and the place was deserted. It was a nice view and very quiet. I wouldn't have minded the high price of the food, had it been of commensurate qualtiy. I had a tenderloin that was anything but tender...chewy like an old shoe, only mixed vegetables which were nearly frozen and fries.... Certainly... More

basic food and high priced for the area, but a wonderful view of the ocean and generally a nice atmosphere. My Pasta carbonara tasted off, maybe just old pasta (flavor improved when I requested Parm cheese), the bread should have been buried weeks ago, but the tomato salad was done well. Service was also fine. I also ate breakfast here... More

After reading the review in TA, we decide to have our first meal(lunch) in Moalboal at the Marina Cucina. Due to time constraint(diving schedule) we didn't get to try the pizza as recommended by fellow TA advisor, instead, we had sandwiches. It turn not to be pretty disappointing. The bread was stale and dry. The fresh juices we ordered was... More

Pizza & Pasta were good. Simple but delicious. Local dishes were O.K. 4 choices for breakfast, not anything special. Nice view of the beach. Reasonable price

It's probably the best and safest eatery in Moalboal. It's well laid out, indoor section and terrace at the water's edge, and is a real restaurant (most other places in Moalboal are bars or shacks). There is a reasonably broad menu, wine list, etc. Pizza is OK but not wonderful. Breakfast is very good at $4. Service is quite professional,... More
