Delicious pizza, quick, well-priced, classy, and competent. A special compliment to the staff in general who made a point of ensuring everything was perfect - Started with Daniella the hostess and continued with Benjamin the pizza chef.

Reviewed this restaurant on the Marriott Hotel tripadvisor but glad I found it so I can relay just how horrible my experience at this restaurant was. Went on a hot day with a friend, ordered a Risotto which arrived in reasonable time. My friend also ordered a spaghetti meal which had potatoes in (bizarre right).

Anyways, long story short I payed about £22 to get food poisoned. As a restaurant in a 5 star hotel, this is beyond unacceptable.

When I say I got food poisoned I mean vomiting and the whole shpill! Granted I got a reply on the Marriott trip advisor instructing me to contact them directly.

Alas, if you do decide to take the risk and go, insure you smell the food as I did and if it spells off and tastes as much give it back. I’m more than sure it was the cheese that got me. Enjoy!

Following yet another delayed flight with our national carrier - Kenya Airways - we found ourselves checking in at the Marriott at close to 10:00pm. With 2 hungry, tired and grumpy children by my side, the only thing on our minds was FOOD! As the kitchen was closing in an hour, we settled ourselves at Cucina, a freshly classy Italian restaurant.

While the food took some time to be prepared, there was plenty of perfectly baked bread to munch on and Eric, our waiter, checked on us regularly to make sure we were still okay or confirm if we needed anything else. It’s always annoying when the restaurant team disappears once the order is taken only to resurface when the food is ready giving you no opportunity to request for anything else in between or check on the progress of your meal.

Finally, our food arrived...fresh, well presented and a delight to the tastebuds. Definitely worth the wait for this hungry bunch of travelers.

I often go to Marriott for buffet but I was not aware of this restaurant till I read its review and decided to sample it out. I was there for a lunch date with my wife.

I was impressed with the ambiance( deco is tastefullydone), the quality of the breads and pizza- which was the main meal. The service was on point. I will be going there more often in future.

While I was walking around Marriott I found a girl at a reception of Cucina Restaurant called Daniella who treated me like the owner of Marriott. I would like to recommend all of you to go and see yourself. I was totally satisfied and I appreciated good services from Daniella.
