Went for lunch, sensitive, thoughtful service. Excellent pasta with swimmer crab. Large serve. Good coffee, nice dessert menu but no room left inside me.

What a fantastic place to have a good Italian feed! Love my Ragu pasta and they didn't disappoint. Great service with great food is all I ask for and you guys delivered on that tonight. Ease of location 2 mins out from city it seems like a great destination.

I'm a regular at Cucina with good reason. Max delivers excellent service and his dry wit is always a treat. The scrambled eggs is an experience not to be missed. And they're pretty darned good at the other end of the day as well (aka dinner). I've only dined there once, but the veal was the best I've ever had.... More

We were staying around the corner from Cucina so, having read some favourable reviews, it seemed a good place to try for breakfast. From the moment we entered, the surly waiter gave the impression that everything was too much effort. The food and coffee were reasonable, but not of a standard to make us overlook the poor service.

This restaurant has excellent service and the food is some of the best Italian in Adelaide.... I go as often as I can. Breakfast, lunch or dinner is a good time!

We have had some great meals at Cucina and their coffee is also very good (anyone who's read an of my other reviews know that this is an essential criterion!). However, we went recently with some interstate visitors and were very disappointed. Staff and service were, as usual, exceptional - but the food left quite a lot to be desired.... More
