“Great Italian”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

We have been to La Cucina on numerous occasions since it opened about 6 years ago and it never disappoints. Food is a good mixture of pasta, pizza and fish; cooked in a kitchen that you can see from most tables. The main menu has also just been revamped - would recommend the tagliatelle with truffles, not cheap, but a fantastic new dish. Restaurant is also very child friendly and welcomes children of all ages.

“Always good”
Reviewed February 24, 2013 via mobile

We've been coming to La Cucina a few times a year since it opened and have never been disappointed. The food is fresh, well prepared and comes in good sized portions. The only slight complaint is that the children's pizzas whilst physically smaller, use the same amount of dough resulting in an over doughy base.

We'll be back.

“A lively spot to eat well at a reasonable price”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

The restaurant is in a good location, 5 minutes walk from the centre of Oxfoerd. The staff are engaging and friendly. The food was tasty and of good quality. The prices were very reasonable, £50 for the two us including an £18 bottle of wine.

“Sat night Meal”
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!
