About The Restaurant

The decor here is a mock authentic trying to give the impression one could be in the heart of an Italian village. The restaurant is large - providing a smoking and non-smoking area. When we entered we were greeted with a smile from the staff and made to feel immediately welcome. The food itself was average - fresh seafood salad, home made bread with oil and vinegar, beautifully cooked steak and impressive authentic pasta. The food tasted fresh, light and wholesome. The service should be mentioned also as the waiters were attentive but not interfering. We would have liked to have had some authentic Italian music in the background whilst we dined to complete the great atmosphere.

In January 2012 Cucina launched it's Friday Brunch which when we attended was exquisite. There was a wonderful salad bar full of the freshest, tastiest seafood (salmon, muscles and prawns) as well as breads and many other delights. Once you have sampled this, the waiters will bring you home made pizza, pasta dishes, beef and mashed potato as well as a dessert. If you are looking for a brunch with plenty to eat and sample then this is your place.

    We dined there 23/11/11... a family of 4. The service was lovely and friendly, however the food was poor. Daughter\'s pizza, good. My son\'s lasagne was dry and the meat of low quality, and tasted awful. My mushroom risotto was extremely disappointing, it was more a mix of dry chinese mushrooms mixed with italian... bad combo. Husband\'s linguine with seafood average. The chianti we were recommended to go with our meals was also average. It was very disappointing paying for the meals. We will return to our trusted favourite Carluccios where you get great food and wine everytime.

    Went here yesterday for my partners birthday and we had a great time!The food was great - i could have just eaten from the salad bar it was that good. But instead all sorts of dishes came out. The staff even sang happy birthday to my partner and gave him a cake and candle to blow out. I didn't ask for all that but was impressed they did it anyway. One thing i would say is that there isn't much time to breathe in between the dishes as they all seemed to come out very quickly. We shall go back soon!
