“What a Find!”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

We have eaten at the Cucina in Balloch three times during our recent stays on Loch Lomond. It is a small, cosy eatablishment with a fun atmosphere and well patronised by the locals. Home cooking of top quality, friendly service and reasonable prices. Well ahead of anywhere else in the town.

“good place to eat”
Reviewed September 19, 2012

Went to Cucina in a bid to find somewhere good to eat in Balloch, and we where not disappointed. My husband had lasagne, which he thought was great, and I had the calzone, which was equally tasty and enjoyable. Shared starters lovely.
We have been in the area for a week, and have not, until now, found anywhere even reasonable to eat; there seems to be a lack of quality food, unless you want to pay very high prices, and even then it does not guarantee even reasonable food.
Well done Cucina, you have reprieved Ballochs reputation for having no good eating places, although we have yet to try the indian next door!

“cant fault!”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

We visited on three occasions in our week at Balloch. on each occasion the food and service were excellent. This is a very popular and busy restaurant which provides a great array of freshly cooked food. We had a mixture of sea bass (fabulous) and vegetarian and meat lasagnes, all cooked to perfection. A real gem!
