Having tasted the pasta dish my wife ordered we instantly knew this dish was not cooked by a professional chef. No discernable taste of the visible and listed ingredients and very salty to complete the experience. The only thing that came to mind was unfortunately...whiskas, metaphorically speaking...More

Long way to go... By accident found the place during warm evening. Decided to stay as outside sitting area was pretty busy with ambient atmosphere. Drink.. Wine list- long, nothing spectacular and lots of “sold out”. To be honest I have been in wine bars...round the world and I just could see why over here the unknown brands were so pricy. Food- I strongly believe that this place trying to be run as Micheln star restaurant but quality of the dishes is far away from what it pretends to be. Timing- if you will decide to give it a go you have to reserve yourself a hole evening as waiting time is tremendous, I haven’t wait so long even in Ritz. Nearly an hour for 3 oysters, laugh, pasta with scallops don’t get exited as you getting all 3 scallops on supermarket pasta with not Mediterranean spice but poor tomato soup. Beef Tatar... when you ask for supplements staff is asking have you tried it - rude. Staff- pleasant but it was obvious that not enough of it, sitting outside you can see the kitchen staff working or it’s better to say trying to survive. For what you will pay I can say you can have great night out in hundred of different places in Poznan. I do understand the concept but to reach where this place want to be is a long and hard way.More

Dear Guest, Greetings from Cucina Restaurant! Indeed, that evening the dinner service was below our daily level, mainly because of the waiting time. At the end of the evening service the situation was discussed very thoroughly and the conclusions were drawn. Please, accept my apologies...More

The food and the location are actually good. Unfortunately the service was the worst we experienced in quite a long time. First of all the staff could not find our reservation even though we got a confirmation via email a couple of days before. Then...we were seated in the farthest corner of the restaurant where the waitor didn‘t see us at all. There we waited for the waitor all evening long... First it took him about 45 minutes to take our orders and nearly another 30 minutes to bring the drinks. The preparation of the meals took also way too long. When the food was finally served, three of us got pork instead of lamb because the waitor made a wrong note. To close the evening we waited another half an hour to get the bill even though there weren‘t nearly any other guests left. We will definitely never ever eat at CUCINA 88 again!More

I like this restaurant much more for breakfast than dinner. Breakfast is superb but dinner just ok. First of all for dinner there is no nice, special climate. No special design or something ... Waiter was dry and stiff. Food was tasty but I think...it is too expensive for overall. Dishes looks good, quantity could be a little more. It was my second time there and probably last for dinner. I recommend this place for breakfast.More

We sat outside in their lovely garden patio seating. The waiter seemed annoyed that we ask to sit at a garden table covered with an umbrella. We ordered some nice wine (waiter was knowledgable about the wine) and decided upon our entrees. I had a...steak with vegetables and my business partner ordered a soup before her salmon entree. We also shared a piece of the cheesecake made with goat cheese. Food was good. Not great but good. The problem came after our entree was served. WE waited for a long time for our waiter to become back and check on us and then we ordered dessert and he forgot to bring it. THEN we literally had to wait 1.5 hours for our check. WE asked TWICE for it. TWICE. I went inside to the bathroom and asked him to please bring it and then 45 minutes later he appeared after I flagged him down. There were some suspicious VAT charges on the bill but we were SO tired and tired of waiting that we just paid so we could leave. This restaurant needs to train better. The waiter was talking to what appeared to bar patrons and ignored our needs. He ruined the experience for us.More
