I had an evening meal at Cucina in a party of 14 people. The restaurant staff were very welcoming, and all our reserved tables were ready on our arrival.

The food was extremely good. I had Spicy Sausage Bruschetta for starter and chose the Cucina Classic pizza for main, washed down with a couple of pints of draught lager!! The staff members were very relaxed and chatty, which helped with the atmosphere in the restaurant.

Don't let the café style décor put you off, the food is excellent. Husband had fillet steak and was cooked to perfection. I had the King Prawns cooked in olive oil and chillies etc with penne pasta and garlic bread, again delicious. Service was quick and friendly. Very reasonably priced and they give you complimentary bread and dip. Would definitely recommend.

like to give local places a go and have heard good things about this place. However, the layout of the main dining area is uninspiring, regimented and café like. We just did not think the look of the place did it any justice.
Reasonable choices on the menu and prices quite good. Food quality very hit and miss. Bruschetta was bland with not even a hint of balsamic or olive oil. Macaroni reasonably nice but nothing to get excited about. Pizza looked as though it was all home made though with nice crust and ( i'm told) lovely toppings so that was a positive. Staff lovely and friendly but service was really slow- we were about to leave as it took so long to take order and for food to arrive despite it not being that busy. Toilets look as though they have recently been refurbished ( perhaps still to be finished off though?) and nice and clean.
overall - pretty nice but I wouldn't go out of my way to revisit.

Visited last night for dinner, we enjoyed it so much we came back today and tried the coffee house for brunch. We were not disappointed! Excellent service and delicious food. Can't wait to come back already!
