“Valentine's day”
Reviewed February 16, 2014

We went to La Cucina on Valentine's night for the first time. The set menu was £25 a person and there was a good range of options to choose from. Initially, we felt a little under pressure to order food but after that the service was excellent with plenty of time in between courses to enjoy our meal. The food was delicious - very fresh and everything was homemade. The pizza was outstanding. The rose for female customers as they left was a very nice touch. I would highly recommend this restaurant and can't wait to go back to try the a la carte menu.

“Consistently outstanding”
Reviewed February 14, 2014 via mobile

Great food, great service with friendly staff!
All of the above keeps drawing us back again and again. The best rose veal I have ever tasted and the only restaurant I have ever had veal T-bone steak ( unfortunately it is a special and not always on the menu) delish.

“Standard food, disappointing service”
Reviewed February 11, 2014 via mobile

Having read excellent reviews about this restaurant I decided to visit and see for myself.

On arrival we were greeted by an unhappy female waitress who showed us to our table. Although we were sat right beside a radiator, the restaurant was freezing!

Having ordered a cocktail from the drinks menu, the most unhelpful waiter approached us to tell us, with no apology, that they were out of pineapple juice and thus could not make a cocktail.

The food was standard, the Penne Arabiatta was rather bland however the Pollo Scozze was flavoursome yet both dishes were very small portions in relation to the price.

At no point during our visit were we asked how our meal was - including when the waiter collected our plates when we were finished. A simple 'was everything ok' would have sufficed.

In all, I was very disappointed with this restaurant and as a result I will not be back.
