We have dined here quite a few times as a family and as a couple. The food is always good and the service is excellent. Book in advance because they get fully booked most weekends. The special cocktail is always a good choice and wines and champagne are always chilled to perfection. Looking forward to our next visit.

Our first visit to this restaurant and certainly not our last. Absolutely top class from the friendly greeting on arrival until we left after having enjoyed a lovely meal with great service. Good varied menu and everyone in our party of 10 enjoyed various dishes. Reasonable fixed price lunch menu but also a wide a la Carte if required. In an area with dozens of restaurants from which to choose this for us will now be a favourite.

A wonderful restaurant with wonderful staff. They always make us feel welcomed and the food is always great. Can honestly say I have never left hungry or disappointed. Gracie

Just returned from yet another great dinner at Cucina. Have been here several times with friends and family and this place never disappoints. A wonderful experience and great service would recommend

We went on Saturday night at 8pm the restaurant was not full, the older member of staff recognised me after we were seated he came over and got us drinks. That was the best bit of the service. The rest of the evenings service was amateur and very poor, the rest of the waiters were smarmy and patronising and only showed interested in two young girls at another table and a few customers they knew.
We had scallop and prawn starters, they were good however our pizza bread arrived after we had finished. They forgot the glass of wine I ordered with my starter and it took an age after reminding them, the second glass I ordered also took forever to arrive.
Main courses - Lemon Sole for the lady and Tournedos Rossini for me were just average, my partner enjoyed her sweet though.
Would I go back never, would I recommend no, at £140 for two of us (only one of us had alcohol) there are now newer Italian choices in Leigh. Cucina you seriously need to up your game and get rid of the young waiters, and employ professionals
