“Double check your bill”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2012

Mediocre Italian food, nothing to write home about, do check your bill, as they have a habit of adding a few "extras"..

“Pretty good Italian Restaurant in Amman”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2012

I was craving Italian food one day last week and decided to try La Cuccina for lunch. I was pleasantly surprised. I ordered the lobster bisque which had real pieces of lobster. The sauce for the seafood spaghetti was nice but the noodles got overcooked, probably from the heat of the sauce. The service was OK. The tiramisu has real mascarpone cheese, not the fake kind that looks good but doesn't taste right.

I can see how it would be a pleasant dining experience in the summer when the garden opens up. I like La Cuccina better than Romero's, even though their prices are similar.
