My husband and I ate here twice and both times we were satisfied with our meals (spaghetti bolognese and asparagus risotto). The food was very fresh and flavourful. Just be prepared to be served a giant portion of food. Actually, the second time we spilt one pasta dish and between the two of us we had a hard time finishing... More

Of all the Marriott eateries at Frigate Bay, this is the worst (I don't include the BBQ cafe by the beach in this list as it is in another category of awfulness). Ever paid $30 for a bowl of overcooked pasta (overcooked to a degree of disintegration, s.t. the contents of the plate remind of mash rather than pasta)? You... More

Okay I would to start by saying that the type of service you receive obviously has a lot to do with your dining experience. That said we had a great experience with Shanda who was on top of everything. Wine was good, lobster ravioli was great, and the dessert Shanda selected was awesome. Overall, I was pleasantly surprised with the... More

Today was a pool day and after an afternoon of lounging we just didn't feel like heading to town for dinner. So off we went checking out the various Marriott restaurants and agreeing on La Cucina because it appeared busier than the others. Wait staff was inattentive and other than taking our order and delivering food were no where to... More

We had dinner there the other night and slow is an understatement even on island time. It seemed hot in the restaurant so I inquired and was told the chiller was broken. Then when the food came out it was so over cooked I could not even stick a fork in it. There done

Lobster ravioli is probably best thing we had. The rest of the dishes were just OK. Service was not great....island slow. Not a good value

Overpriced Italian food at the Marriott at St. Kitts. Go down the road to P.J.'s instead. We went on the buffet night, but it turned out the buffet was just for the salad and appetizer courses and we had to buy an expensive plate of pasta to go with it. My caesar salad was wilted and limp, the bruscetta tasted... More

We always enjoy a good Italian meal, so we decided to tryLa Cucina one evening. The whole evening was an absolute disaster, and apart from the staff in the restaurant, we can find nothing positive to say about our evening there. We had telephoned earlier to reserve a table at 7:30 pm, but on our arrival at 7:30 pm, we... More

Worst restaurant at St. Kitts Marriott resort. I am Italian and I totally disagree with some one's prior comment. The antipasto was awful and the lasagna was too. The food was so bad in so many ways it's not worth commenting on it further.
