Lets start of by saying that I've been to many Italian Restaurants including ones located in Italy, but Cucina is one that I will never forget for as long as I live. I am a regular Cucina visitor and diner, almost every week we dine and every time feels unique and special and different to all the other visits. As... More

Cucina offers a three course business menu in 45 minutes for a reasonable fixed price. If they need more time to prepare all dishes, you eat for free. Enough menu options available to meet your taste; all Italian dishes. Good - excellent quality. Great service. We could indeed enjoy a tasteful lunch within 45 minutes! Restaurant has no daylight. It's... More

We are monthly visit Cucina, most of the time for Diner. They have very nice service, especially Raymond who is always very happy and enthusiastic. All the food is good but Pizza Capriciossa is the best pizza in town for me. Price are acceptable. Definitely worth !

Cucina does the 'classics' pretty well and at good value in this part of the world. Accomplished cooking goes a fair way to masking the lack of fresh seasonal ingredients available here. Tomato bruschetta in particular suffers because our tomatoes here are generally from the Netherlands and lack the rich sweetness of the real Mediterranean fruit. Seafood is a good... More

Nice appearance. Clean. Spacious. Nice lighting. Poor service. Waited several minutes for a waiter to take our drink order and there were only a few customers. When he finally came, he took our full order. He was very little help in my selection. Once we received our food, we didn't see him again until we were finished eating. No one... More

This is one of the restaurants that I visit at least once a week in the hotel. The food is absolutely first class and the venue is just perfect. Every time I walk in there I feel like I'm back in Italy; the atmosphere really is that good. The staff are extremely friendly and the service is of the standard... More

I would say it's a good restaurant. The food is nice and the service very good. It's a bit pricey but I would say it's not so bad. The steak was very well cooked but the taste was not something exceptional.
