    Cucinetta never fails to delight and amaze. Great food, service and ambiance. Last night with friends from Sydney did not disappoint. Another tasty and lovely evening was thoroughly enjoyed at Cucinetta!

    Absolutely loved our meal here! Every dish was beautiful. The grilled octopus was definitely the fave. Service was great. They accidentally gave us ravioli instead of the gnocchi we asked for, but they sorted it out for us. Cute little vibe. Will definitely be back.

    Small Italian restaurant The homemade pasta has a great texture. The 29cheese gnocchi is to die for as well as the tiramisu. Federico provided an excellent service

    The food was really good, but really expensive. Overpriced, if you ask me. The employees are really nice and helpful. Take the tris dolce, that one (or 3 actually) is/are amazing!

    The restaurant is intimate and cozy. The food was tasty but the portions were very small and very expensive. The food was not worth what they charge .

    What's not to like. Food is beyond incredible. Real Italian food done the real Italian way. Peasant meets high class. Just like mum actually made it! Go there.
