“Great food and faultless service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2011

I visited this restaurant with a friend during a one-off visit to London on business. We had a wonderful meal, with great service. But for me the real eye-opener was what happened when I realised I had left my mobile phone in the restaurant. I had already left London, and the helpful staff posted my phone back to me, refusing to accept payment for postage. That, to me, is the mark of a quality establishment. Jennifer, Scotland.

Warm greeting from this family run buisness. Really enjoyed seafood linguine whilst my partner loved the veal a la milanese.

“Fantastic food and service at great prices for central London”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2011

La Cucina is the BEST traditional Italian restaurant in London, well I think so anyway! I've eaten lunch there scores of times and the food and service has always been top notch. They have a standard menu with daily specials. The house red wine is great. Suitable for dining with clients, larger groups or just relaxing with friends. Highly recommended, two minutes walk from Farringdon tube so easy access from the City.

My preferred place to eat in central London. There's always a warm greeting, plenty of friendly advice about the menu and great Italian food and wine.
