Best for Italian

Cucina Comments

Cucina makes a wholehearted effort to contain a small slice of Italy within its four walls, and it does so with no little charm.

The pizza chef takes his stage in one corner, flinging dough ceilingwards; across the way, the service hatch resembles the kind of old-world, fenced-off lifts you see all over Italy. Best of all, the entire staff burst into periodic song with such operatic gusto that you can’t help but smile.

I chose this venue to celebrate my spouse's birthday,and I'm glad I did so. Right from the ambience to the service to the quality of food served, everything was perfect.Being a vegetarian,there were not too many options in the main course, but whatever served was fresh,hot and delicious.They also have an extensive wine list.Do try the 4 cheese pizza & the tiramisu.And are we eager to go back!!
