Cuisine Italian

Menu £ 19 - Carte £ 23/50

A buzzy mezzanine restaurant in a chic hotel, featuring red and blue glass-topped tables and striking kaleidoscope-effect blocks on the walls. Italian dishes follow the seasons - some are classically based and others are more modern.

      Pros

      The quality characterising some of the dishes proposed by this restaurant is fair but not very surprising.

      Cons

      The dishes proposed are generally disappointing and very far from Italian standards; "pasta e risotti" are characterised by an unpleasant lack of flavour that is unusual for every restaurant which is advised by the Italian edition of the Michelin restaurant guide. As it regards the service, this is not as professional as that of lots of restaurant advised by Michelin restaurant guide which obtained no stars. The dining room is too noisy because of the high volume music that the hosts of the restaurant are constantly forced to listen and the tables are set without care by the staff of the restaurant. To finish I say that, as I am Italian, I think that I must advise all people that would eat into "Cucina" restaurant not to do this at all.
