“gnocchi to knock your socks off!”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

It was relatively quiet on the Saturday night we went for drinks and dinner to E Cucina. Service was understandably attentive, but not annoying.

There were 10 of us out on a girls night, so we enjoyed cocktails in the bar area first and then were seated at a great big rustic wooden table to enjoy our meal.

Choices ranged from goat cheese souffle to duck and pork, but the most popular and absolute divinely delicious choice was the gnocchi with osso bucco. The meat was tender and shredded through and there was enough of a chilli hit to warm up the cold wintery evening.

I would go back to E Cucina for this gnocchi dish alone!

The ambience was sophisticated, with warm lighting and inviting decor. The music was quirkiily questionable, ranging from Michael Bolton ballads to Whitney Houston.

Prices were average for a central Perth restaurant.

“Good food and service”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

I usually meet up here after work a few times per year and have never had a bad meal. It's not the cheapest place but at least it's worth the dollars.

“E Cucina - Not typical Perth, Great Service - Poor Food”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

Went to Ecucina last night and have a few comments.....

Service, unlike most places in Perth, was faultless, waiter was attentive and friendly, without being overly so.

Food......hmmmmm.

We had Sourdough, it was ok and only ok.....have had better from Coles, also when serving butter its nicer when it's not half melted and running off the dish....we also had the homemade Chorizo.....seriously this looked like a bowl of dog food, but was reasonably tasty (woof....!!)

For mains we had 2no fillet steaks (one each...!) - they were very fatty - only ok - 3 times cooked chips on the other hand were very good.

For desert we had the chocolate and vanilla offering - very good - no complaints.

Decor great, very nice atmosphere.

Location great.

Will we go back, probably not for food, drinks yes for sure....!!

“Consistent”
Reviewed May 31, 2013

I have eaten here before and it is always good.

We ate steaks and salmon. The salmon was cooked to perfection . We also had a pear and rocket salad and that was really full of flavour. I would return if only for the salad it was so good!
The wine list at the e cucina is great and they serve Prosseco in a beautiful glass so that make me happy.
The staff are efficient and were skilled to cope with a busy Friday night crowd so waiting time was minimal.
The only down point was we were quite near the door and it was a cold night so it was little draughty.

“Delicious!”

Had a great dining experience at e cucina. Staff were very friendly, professional & attentive. Food was absolutely delicious. Would definitely love to return here without our children to enjoy the cosy romantic vibe of the restaurant. Highly recommend
