“Great food but pretty lousy service”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

Ate here last night and very much enjoyed my chicken. Triple fried chips were a bit rough, but the veggies were excellent.

Great casual food place, but the service really wasn't up to much. The waitress wasn't on top form and it wasn't that busy.

“Fabulous food and great service”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

We often go for work lunches at E Cucina and every time we always have great food and top-notch service. The whole group comments on how lovely their meals were, so we will keep returning. They often change the menu so we have enjoyed a range of dishes

“Good Food & Service in central city”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

My friend and I started out with a nice wine and cheese, then decided to stay for dinner.
We both had steaks which were superbly cooked and the rocket, pear and parmesan salad.
We had fabulous service and a really nice evening.

“Enjoyable experience”
Reviewed January 21, 2013 via mobile

Visite on a Monday evening, and the place was fairly quiet. Service was prompt, friendly, and efficient. The seafood linguini was lovely, and my wife loved the lamb.
All in all a very pleasant evening and price ok for the area.

“Night Away in the City”
Reviewed December 18, 2012

Booked a table online for 6:30pm last Saturday night with my wife at E Cucina. We arrived promptly and were seated straight away. Restaurant was not particularly busy. Ordered drinks that arrived promptly and then ordered our meal. The waitress took our order, without a note pad, of a tasting plate for 2 and pan fried salmon and slow cooked shoulder of beef. 30 minutes later my wife enquirer where our starters were? The waitress went away for a further 10 minutes and then we were given complementary bread and olives around an hour after we arrived. The tasting plate when it arrived was very nice including carpaccio of kangaroo and feta cakes in short crust pastry, very nice. The mains arrived relatively quickly after the starters and were also very tasty. Nice meal somewhat spoilt by poor service, a real shame!
