La Cucina has only shut once before for a private function, but yesterday, as a special favour, they closed for the evening to host my daughters wedding reception. And boy did they do us proud. We wanted a traditional Italian wedding feast and that's whet we got in spades. All the staff could not have been more welcoming, attentive and friendly; they catered to our every whim. The service was excellent, and the 7 course meal cooked to perfection. My only regret was we could not eat it all!
Whilst this was not a regular meal by any stretch of the imagination, I have eaten there previously and the quality and service was of the same high standard.

The whole experience was just average - the menu, the food, the staff and the service.

Based on how average this was, i thought it was a little overpriced. Many of the people in my group were really disappointed with their food and would probably rate this lower. the calzone was of particular dissatisfaction.

Food was good, not exceptional, but good for the price. What sets this restaurant aside is the bustling busy atmosphere and helpful bubbly staff. An enjoyable evening out!

We went for a family meal after a recommendation and were not disappointed. Good range available on all courses, attentive but not intrusive service and the place had a good feel to it. We'll go again.
