Very friendly staff. I booked a reservation for 815pm and at 7+pm, a lady staff called me to give me a heads up that last order will be at 9pm in case we 'regardless late. Was pleasantly surprised
Cucina Italian is insanely quiet on weekends (they cater more to the weekday working crowd) - throughout the whole dinner, no one else dined with us. But I love it when I discover quiet places where you can talk in peace, & where the food is delicious. Even more so if it's affordable - although technically I cheated because I got 1-for-1 with Burpple Beyond! Without this discount, I do feel the food would be pretty basic for the above average price tag. Parking is free for the first 3 hours on weekends. That was a bonus! My least favourite dish was the mushroom soup - is it just me or is inflation making soups more expensive? For the price tag (not part of any 1-for-1 promo), this was too watered down for my liking. Would've preferred something chunkier & with more robust flavour. The pastas were done al dente - carbonara & vongole in picture. I didn't try enough of the carbonara to pass fair judgement; but the vongole - aside from some grit in the clams, I enjoyed it very much. The sauce was also not too salty or oily for my liking. The Hawaiian pizza had a soft, thin crust; it would've been better slightly crispier, but the bountiful stretchy chewy cheese on top made up for it. Can't go wrong with a simple classic pizza like this. The chicken was surprisingly tender & juicy, with enough vegetables to pair with the meat so you don't run out of either by the end of your meal. 💳 Accepts credit cards 🌬 Air-conditioned seats only 🍽 Burpple Beyond partner 🖥 Accepts reservations on Quandoo 💦 Water IS chargeable
Booked this place for second time. Love how friendly these folks are and how unpretentious is the food they serve. Keep up the good work
