“Very boutique, potentially great atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

We sat down in one of the rooms that is a bookshop by day. the interior is very quirky and cosy. Food quality was top notch. Especially enjoyed the free muse bouche and digestif! it was reasonably quiet on the evening we went, but I can imagine this place is great atmosphere once it"s packed out. Would recommend!

“Very creative and exciting menu- impressed!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

As said previously, you tend to stumble on this place and can miss it as you walk past. Different, fun and quirky decor inside. The menu was very different, not vast but plenty of choice. Food presentation and style was like being on Masterchef! Well done.

“A wonderful respite from the tourists.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013 via mobile

2 friends and I just had a lovely meal at Cuculia. It was remarkably good value three course and wine for €90.
Very hipster and intially we thought we stumbled upon a vegetarian restaurant, but to our relief they cater to all tastes.
This place clearly doubles as a daytime cafe/bookstore/gallery, but it made for an excellent late meal (we arrived after 10). Deserts we a little weak, but Florence is brimming with pastry shops for that.
Good interior, good selection of books. Overall an excellent respite
from the city north of the river.

“Stumbled upon this hidden gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

Cuculia was a highlight of my recent trip to Florence. I happened upon it one night at just the right time while they were only serving drinks, and decided to stay for dinner after reading the inspired menu and experiencing the laid-back atmosphere. Think: bookstore, art gallery, cafe and bistro all wrapped up into one amazing establishment. Maybe because I was hanging out for so long, I received a complimentary bowl of beautiful and delicious roasted cauliflower soup made that day. I had a salad and the fresh-made pasta with a citrus sauce, which were both beautifully presented and delicious! I can't recommend this place highly enough! Thanks for being a surprising highlight of my trip!
