We work for INDIGENIA a non-profit based in Mexico City that helps promote and preserve indigenous cultures around the world. We approached Cuculia asking them if they could host an event/apperitive for us and they said yes right away.
The evening was beautiful, they provided all the facilities (projector, speakers, chairs, etc) and we had a talk about the Wixarika culture which we are working with right now.
Oliver and Domenico (the chefs) made a mexican style apperitive and it was wonderful! They got all the flavours down just right and it was delicious. They concocted a mixture between typical mexican dishes and contemporary fusion to create a beautiful platter full of color and flavour. The waitresses made a tequila sunrise to go along with the apperitive and it was refreshing and delicious as well. Cuculia then donated about half of the proceeds of their sales that night for our cause. All of the staff is incredibly warm and cheerful, we don't believe that any other place could have done such a good job as Cuculia did. Cuculia is the perfect place to organize events of cultural significance or literary presentations as well as spend a wonderful evening enjoying their unique dishes and laid back atmosphere. Grazie mille!

“great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2014

really good food, reasonably priced. There were plenty of vegan and vegetarian options, which the friendly staff were more than happy to point out, and the library/bookshop set-up made for a nice relaxing atmosphere. Would come again if I return to Florence.

“Yum!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2014

I had walked by this restaurant during the day and thought the concept was fun. Was looking for something in the evening and the restaurant was inviting from the outside. Had complementary potato and zucchini soup which was amazing. The ravioli was good as well. Very reasonable and unusual meal. The wait staff was kind and very helpful.

“Incredible!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2014

I have two college age girls and we really just stumbled upon this restaurant. I noticed it first, and it looked like their "vibe" ....it ended up to be a lovely evening with amazing food. The service was slower due to another event they were hosting in the restaurant. However the food made us forget, which is a great sign. The chef complemented us for starters with a soup we will talk about for years to come. It will be what we will compare everything else to. Each dish we ordered came prepared with the highest grade of ingredients, looking like a work of art. I hope this is only the beginning for this young restaurant and my best wishes to the chef and staff! Thank you for a very memorable evening in Florence!!

“Very laid back”

Nice place. More of a coffee shop with a bookshop attached than the other way round. Feels very laid back
