“Humor and beautiful balance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

Me and my husband celebrated my birthday at this resturant. We travelld the Ionian Islands for two weeks and tried to eat at the restrants that were recomended in our travelled guide and on the internet. This was our final and best meal of our journey. The staff was very nice and humoristic although you could see that they were very busy. I dearly recomend this resturant to everyone who visits Kerkyra!

“Really good food, nice service, good wine list”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2012

Note that there are two outlets of this restaurant only 30 meters from each other. We went to the more modern one.

We ate tuna steaks, which turned out to be excellent. One of the best tunas I've had, which was quite surprising... didn't really expect to find that in a middle of a tourist city like Corfu. We had a bottle of Assyrtiko grape white wine (very nice wine produced mainly in Santorini and main land Greece) that went down well with the tuna. Good espresso and a small & tasty limoncello crowned the dinner.

The service was friendly and more professional than in any other place we found on Corfu. The restaurant looks nice & modern with air conditioning. It's located a couple of blocks away from the main tourist area, which is quite nice. La cucina is a bit more expensive than most of the local restaurants: the tuna steak cost around 25 euros.

Best food that we had during our stay in Corfu.

“Average food (compared to Italy) and rude service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

Totally ok/average good, although our Fungi pasta was far from al dente, totally overcooked. But compared to other Korfu resturants fairly good food in general. Our waiter declined me to add Parma ham to their pizza (even if they have this as an option on the menue), she also declined a table next to us to have their tuna cooked more than medium rare, which is is correct when it comes to school book cooking of tuna but it should always be up to the customer. Maybe they should looking at Gordon Ramsey's kitchen nightmares sometimes for advice? And why do they have thai dishes on the menue? Beeing treated as a turist worth noting only happens at average resturants, never happended to any of the 50+ micheline resturants we been to. Although food is ok, other waitress other rating and experience

“Best Pizza in Corfu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2012

This is the second best (!) pizza I have ever eaten. Although the menu is limited, everything on it is exquisite and I would thoroughly recommend it to ANYONE visiting Corfu.
