Overwhelmed with the friendliness of the staffs. Though the moment we came, we had to look/wait for the waiting staff for our reservation. But as we dined in, the captain and server myze turned our night to a fabulous Italian dinner. Excellent suggested food one of which is ossobuco. Will definitely try your next suggestion. ;-)

I like my Italian food and Cucina did not let me down on that score. The service was just as great as the food served. Would certainly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Dubai.

Everything from the food, drinks, atmosphere, staff welcome and chefs touch is perfect. Its the place to be when your Italian craving is ticking. Can't imagine a better place to have a couple, family or single dinner or lunch. Just perfect.

When you crave for fresh,authentic and perfect Italian cuisine then you are in the right place. My mom who has been in Italy told me that the food tasted exactly as what they serve,from the homemade taste of the freshly baked breads to the perfection of the Ossobuco alla Milanese with that crunchy panfried saffron rice that compliments it.
