“Sat night Meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2013

We took our teenage son to La Cucina on Saturday night. Garlic bread starter, 2 pizzas and a pasta dish. The food was delicious, good service in a busy popular restaurant. Much better than some we've tried recently. We'd definitley recommend, the only downside was that the tables are a bit small for 3. A bit of a struggle to get 3 plates, drinks on etc, needs strategic placing of items!

“Really impressed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2013

This is a gem, beautifully decorated, spacious and the food is fantastic. Forget the famous chefs and the chains masquerading as authentic Italian. The food here is fresh, original and delivered in style. I can't wait to go back.

“Excellent restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2013 via mobile

Enjoyable atmosphere, great food: I had calamari as a starter which were cooked well and tasted fresh, and the steak which was excellent, done in an Italian way called tagliata, ie cut into strips. Desert was also very good, claimed to be home made and certainly tasted so.

“Fern's and Sue's Birthdays”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013

We were invited for lunch to celebrate Sue's and her daughter, Fern's, birthdays. Having been to see Fern performing with Swindlestock at the Cellar in Oxford on Saturday night a good lunch was needed, and La Cucina did not disappoint. Sue has been to eat there several times and has never had a bad meal. I chose one of the specials, Ox Cheek Stew with vegetables and polenta - sounded interesting and it was very very tasty. We were a party of 10 and all enjoyed our food, ranging from stuffed rabbit to turbot to pizza. Would definitely recommend........ and they made a cake for the birthday girls AND sang happy birthday - what's not to like?
