We booked a table at Cuculia mainly because it was very close to our hotel and discovered a real gem. It is a small restaurant with walls covered with books serving great food. We started with a wonderful amuse-bouche from the chef. For the main course I had a surprising melanzane formaggio that looked and tasted heavenly.

The ambiance is nice and cosy, it can also well apply to a romantic dinner or an anniversary celebration. With my family we got many different dishes and generally they were... More

Went here for dinner. They serve interesting dishes with wonderful flavours. Service is informal and top notch. They assisted with dinner choices, wine marching, and Italian language lessons. Molto bene! Short walk from ponte vechio. Easy to find. Cosy atmosphere. Not expensive. Locals eat here. This is a really good find. Recommend u try it. 👌👍😃

Every dish was a perfect balance of flavours, and a contemporary take on Italian classics. Presentation was great, service was good, and venue is cosy. Would definitely recommend it, and will definitely return.

This was a surprising diner. The food was superb, very tasty and very well balanced. Do not focus on the name of the dishes, just try it and you will be rewarded. The service was also very nice, helpfull and they speak english for those who do not speak Italian. Cheers, have a good appetite!

We ate their tonight, and I was compelled to write a review immediately. Firstly, Cuculia was really quaint and cozy. It is located away from the touristy areas and while we were there, it was filled with locals on dates, families, and friends. The wait staff was super friendly, and understood english (they also had an english version of their... More
