We visited il cuciniere last night for my birthday, the staff were very friendly, very helpful even down to the fact of our friends who had left their glasses at home and could not read the menu without them, the young lady was fantastic, she first tried turning up the lights then found a pair of glasses they could borrow!...

As Portofino's under Edmund Prega this place went down in quality,so we stopped going in,but it has now changed hands and it's name to Il Cuciniere and it is well worth a visit.Welcoming staff and good food,prices not off the scale,so can go more regularly.Loved it,thanks John B Sheffield.

We went for a midweek meal not realising it had just that week changed hands. I'd only been once before in May 2013. That was good but this was even better. It was quiet so the service wasn't a problem as the other reviewer found, and I thought the food was really good with some interesting specials which were carefully... More

I have eaten here a few times and it has always been excellent however i returned last month for a friends birthday, we booked in advance yet had to wait 20 minutes or so for our table to be ready. The place was busy but we were left waiting for someone to come and take our orders, the food took... More

I love the atmosphere in this place and the food is really good too. The value for money is amazing- particularly as you can bring your own wine for corkage of only £2! My friend and I had 2 courses each and our own wine for £25 an that wasn't a set menu. The service is very friendly although the... More

I booked in advance a table for 2 as a birthday treat expecting a lovely evening of food with my husband. We arrived to find the restaurant closed with a note stuck on the front door saying "closed chef ill"...Very poor, I had given my contact number upon booking, not notified we would be let down. Will not bother again.

I've been going to this restaurant for years. About a year or so ago it was taken over and the food seemed to go downhill (even though I've been told it kept the same staff). Pleased to say it is back to its best. Want a good steak, calzone, pasta, fish dish in Sheffield? Come here. I've been 5 or... More
