This place was a sad disaster of a restaurant... from half of the menu being unavailable, to serving flat soda that was obviously very old in the cans, to all three dishes we ordered looking like a plate of under Cooke noodles and watery sauce. The service was fine but you could tell they really didn’t care much what was going on. When I asked them to make sure to check us in on open table they proceeded to bring over the owners cell phone and show me that if they clicked check in they would be charged for the reservation. Ugh. But back to our food. We had to go to McDonald’s after to finish having dinner as the flavors and quality was so poor. And the sad thing was they seemed to be very proud of the garbage they were serving. Just sad.
We should have a nice dinner New Year's Eve. When we arrived we were given 1 hour to order, eat and out the door. We had thought we should enjoy a bottle of wine and have dessert. It was a bad experience for the start of a New Year's Eve when we had to stand in the cold and wait 3 hours at the fireworks.
Minestrone soup was tepid and watery . Pasta dishes were warm and tasteless
Very good service as we went in for pre-theatre meal (not a pre-theate restaurant) and managed to be served 2 courses within the hour easily. We were told which meals NOT to order due to length of cooking time.
Enjoyed the decor. The food was very good. We would dine there again.
The bathroom was tiny, Uni-sex and was always busy.
Excellent place. Good value. Decent food and not too expensive
My children's pizzas were a bit soggy in the middle & burnt at the edges, and so one of them left most of hers - the waiter didn't ask why. The starter of humus was generous, but there wasn't enough pitta bread to go with it - we asked for some more, which arrived with our main meal. Service was friendly but not completely competent. No decaff tea available, which I would expect to be available in a central London restaurant/tourist location. Pretty average as an experience.
Would definitely eat here again on next trip to London ,we stayed at the Marriott and this place is right behind it. Food was good and the people that work there were all very nice
We went to La Cuchina after seeing Witness for the Prosecution at the London County Hall across the street. I booked it for its convenience, and it certainly was that. We had some problems with our order--twice having ordered two of the same dishes, and twice having only one delivered, despite there being 4 people. They eventually served the second dishes, but it was a bit frustrating as we were all eating at different times while the others looked on. The food was good. I had a taster plate which was fine.
What a find! Having been in Sicily in the summer, this was a close match for the relaxed ambience, attentive service and fabulous food that we experienced there. We were spoilt for choice on all three courses ...we'll have to go back and try some more. We were going to a show at County Hall, so the restaurant was handy for that and not too far from Waterloo either.
