if you stay 2 weeks+ & tied from fabulous Asian seafood, go there. But try Asian food first at the hotel & outside it.

Cucina is a nice place for lunch but nothing special to be honest. In terms of prices compared to what's nearby Cucina is over priced and doesn't deliver at a standard that represents value for money. Food is nice but not amazing I had to wait 20 minutes for a soft drink because the staff could not find one of... More

While staying at the JW Marriott, I decided to try Cucina even though the reviews have been up and down on Trip Advisor. The restaurant itself is beautiful, with a gorgeous view of the Andaman Sea. The service is impeccable. They really now how to make your feel special. The restaurant does have a nice wine/champagne list. I can agree... More

Our first breakfast was at the main restaurant and but for the other times we decided to go to Cucina because the main was too busy. It was good and the staff was very helpful too. We went for a pizza one night and it was great.

We tried to get into Cucina one night but they were booked out. Didn't matter as we had their pizzas anyway - a couple of times - for room service. That way you get the same thing for much less $$$. And very nice too, fresh and hot, and still very crispy from the wood-fired pizza oven.

We had dinner here one night. Ambience was just right. We were seated with a great view of the beach. Family friendly. Staff were very courteous and helpful especially when a drinking glass was broken. The lamb gnocchi was delicious. So was the caeser salad and beef lasagne. Prices were as expected on the higher side. As we left the... More

We were in the mood for something new, so we tried La Cucina. It was expensive but tasted great. The portions were very small but excellent. The service was not as good as the other restaurants in the JW Marriott. Could be a romantic place except for the kids screaming next to us.

We had one dinner here while staying at the JW Marriott for 5 nights. The pasta a and pizza were very good and the service was excellent. Make a reservation for later in the evening to avoid lots of tired and cranky children.

Dear Sharon, Thank you for leaving your comments on our authentic Italian pizza and pasta, did you have a chance to taste the excellent new white pizzas? Chef Heather has recently added a selection of new white pizzas on the menu which I love and a very interesting squid ink spaghetti. If you have any comments on how we could... More
