Went to this Italian eatery last night 4 handed. The restaurant is decorated very well in modern Italian style. Busy and bustly with great piano jazz playing in the background the whole vibe was excellent. The staff, all Italian were very professional friendly and helpful.
All the food we had was excellent. All served hot and very tasty. The arancini and the malanzani sicillioano were terrific also the lobster ravioli superb. All washed down with a bottle of merlot I would go as far as to say probably the best Italian in the whole area. Well done cucina

We visited Saturday evening as a family of 4 adults had our booking at 6:30 and the restaurant was already very busy. Saw good reviews online beforehand and we really enjoyed our visit. We would all recommend our dishes! Seafood tagliatelle, steak medallions (special), spag bol, Irish coffee and chocolate cheesecake all lovely and huge portions. We will definitely recommend the restaurant to friends and family and will definitely return, thank you!

We came across this Restaurant today and decided to have an unplanned late lunch. We was welcomed very warmly by the Manager & waiter who seated us straight away. I took advantage of thier 2 course for £12.95, my partner ordered from A La Catre and my son had children’s menu £8.95.
The food was delicious..... all of it!! Would highly recommend thier Spaghetti Bolognase and chocolate cheesecake.
Service was excellent.
Looks like we have found our favourite local.... Will definitely be returning!

We had a local group meeting at Cucina before Christmas and the food, service and atmosphere were superb. I’m going again next week.
