Very genuine Italian pizza and pasta restaurant. We were a group of six and all of us enjoyed the dinner very much. The restaurant was very busy and fully occupied but the servers still kept a good mood and tried their best to serve well every customer. Highly recommend this restaurant.

(First off: This review is about the original "Cucina" at Luisenstrasse/Langstrasse near Limmatplatz, not about their new subsidiary at Kasernenstrasse.) If you want to eat a really good pizza in Zurich, don't bother with any of the "Italian" restaurants in the old-town or at the lake side, the pizze and dishes of the restaurants there are average at best.

The pizza is very good indeed. The service as mentioned by others, is not. And the menu promises more than it can keep (see title).

Went there tonight. Food was pretty good but the service was awful. Waited over 35 minutes for the beer I ordered and it only arrived after I asked a second waiter for it. Same applied for paying the bill, waited for nearly 20 minutes to pay. I would've thought that they would have wanted to have us pay and clear... More

Warm, friendly staff. Very attentive (constantly filling my glass, etc). Reasonably priced. BEST PIZZA IN SWITZERLAND. I will be back, with my wife and friends, many times. Keep up the good work, and don't change a thing!

I went because of the reviews and it was ok. Pizza was good and the outdoor terrace is very nice. Sadly if you seat outside then it has to be smoking section and I hate that. Service was a bit slow but prices a fair and quality of pizza was good.

We are here to plan my birthday dinner, because we love the place, it is like eating at the family table, hearty Florentine cooking, excellent meat, only a few choices on the menu, but a menu is not needed, just ask what they have and take it blindly, as if mama were serving. Just a happy place, mainly frequented by... More

I have eaten in Cucina three times by now, sampling different dishes. Most dishes were simply excellent. Good food, great tastes, good wine, nice portions, friendly atmosphere, and fantastic pizzas.

When I am craving a pizza this is my place to go to. I simply love their pizza. I saw some negative reviews about the service. Personally I never experienced any negative situations. My waiters were always friendly. And I am quiet picky when it comes to service quality.
