We went with a local friend to this restaurant, and it was such a treat. The front was open to the summer evening and the place was very busy. We all enjoyed our meals very much. Our local friend eats there often, so I guess the quality is always so good. I believe it is family run. There were lots... More

The food here is sometimes great, but always decent enough for the prices charged. There's always a couple of options for vegetarians, and the pizzas are only beaten by 'buongiorno e buonasera' for quality in Oxford

We ordered two starters - the mozzarella and the tepid/warm lentil salad. We followed this by sharing the rather large pizza bianca and an apple pie to share. What surprised me was the sponge like soft bread that came with the olive oli/balsamic vinegar. I lived in Italy for several years and got used to the lovely hard sour dough... More

I have been to this restaurant many times so I think it's about time I wrote a review. We went there again last night and as always the food was fabulous and the waiting staff were friendly. We had calamari to start, my partner had pizza (the best in Oxford, easily) and I had monkfish off the special board. Followed... More

We had a birthday lunch here for 12 people and it went perfectly. The staff were absolutely charming and the guests commented on the excellence of the food and the lovely relaxed family ambience. Highly recommend for all occasions!

Came for dinner with a fussy friend and even they had problem picking off the large menu. Something for everyone. Good location in st Clements. Much bigger than it appears from the front.

Stumbled upon La Cucina by accident and i'm so glad i did. had a lovely evening meal. Perfectly stone baked pizza and a lovely sorbet to finish it off. 5-10 minutes walk from the centre of Oxford but well worth the walk.

We booked a table here for 12 students to celebrate a 20th birthday and my friends had a wonderful evening. However, I cannot eat gluten and did not have a good experience. It took me a long time to acquire a gluten free menu which, when it eventually arrived was sparse, did not include prices and didn't feature any pizza... More

we visited midweek for dinner. Garlic flatbread and a pizza each, Diavolo and Maestro Beppe, both delicious. Yola welcomed us as usual and the meal was lovely as always. i'm sure we will be back again soon.

Thank nobberOxford
