Had a nice private ish table and as always the service was fantastic. And the food was superb, the starters we had eg the prawns and the calamari, great. I had been told about the calves liver, so i had it, absolutely fantastic, my partner had medallions of fillet steak which again was great. Will book again, definately.

Have eaten here a few times and for some reason never put a review that the restaurant deserves as never really had a bad meal. The food Is what I call proper Italian - Pastas, Skate Wing, steak etc. and we all had an enjoyable meal. Staff are smiley and friendly and will definitely be back soon.

Had a Sunday dinner at la cucina. When you walk in you will be greeted by friendly staff and nice surroundings. After we had our meal we was given our bill and that's where things go downhill. They won't list every item in your bill, they put prices on each section of your food. When we added this up we... More

Booked the table for 11 people no trouble, was a bit of a squeeze but was warned of that when i booked, we managed. The food was great and the service was just as good. The atmosphere was nice and not loud so we could hear what everyone on our table was saying. Price wise, very reasonable. 2nd time we... More

Spent New Year's eve here because previous visits have been excellent. However, on this occasion the food was lack lustre and the staff inconspicuous. The only highlight was the music which was great. Whilst it is understandable that a busy evening like this puts pressure on the staff, something was definitely missing, not just the usual Manager but also some... More

Last minute choice to eat out but we manage to book an early table to be able to visit La Cucina. Although we were on a time limit for our table we were never rushed and the service was excellent. The menu had lots of excellent choices and everything looked and sounded so good making a choice was made even... More

Business meal, sadly we were divided into three tables, food was good for a school cantine, virtually no veggie options: mushrooms for starter and rice mushrooms for main. Bland food, poor service and very overpriced for the experience.
