Founder, Kurt Zdesar has scoured the length and breadth of Italy and the UK to source the very best produce to create innovative, yet wholesome dishes. Working with the best of what is in season, and only using produce at peak condition, the food at Fucina is as nourishing as it is delicious.

Although the menu is derived from traditional recipes Fucina represents a new wave of Italian cooking in London, elevating simple ingredients to umami-rich creations.

Fucina serves handmade pasta, rolled just before service and stone-baked pizza from a wood-fired oven, both made from stone ground, wholemeal flour that’s naturally fermented.

Great place. Loved the food and the service was perfect. I would recommend this place for business lunches as it's quiet and reasonably fast service.
Would be good to have a bit more of an atmosphere but that only comes with more bookings!

We wanted a stylish Italian restaurant to celebrate our daughter's 18th birthday and this fitted the bill perfectly. The service was excellent; really attentive but not overwhelming and they made a fuss of our daughter.

Although the portions were quite small, we had plenty to eat and would definitely recommend it.

The food was great - walnut ravioli was really very good.
The wine list is a bit pricy and the food is perhaps a bit on the expensive end of the spectrum. But good space in a new building and welcome addition to the neighbourhood.

Menu was ok. Not much to choose from! But food was amazing and the staff were so lovely. The restaurant itself is also lovely, it was quiet though as a Tuesday evening. Would definitely return!

I never really complain about restaurants unless it’s really bad and this was HORRIBLE. Sat us 15 mins after our reservation time which normally is not a big deal but then it took 10 mins and me going to the check in desk to get menus. After an hour our first round of drinks came and we were still missing one. It took us asking 3 more times to get the last drink. Another hour goes by and our foods comes half missing. My pasta which I said no meat and told them specifically was a vegetarian had meat on it. 15 mins later they brought a new pasta and it was watery and terrible.

I love this place as its my local, the food is fantastic, even when its not quite what you ordered. The service has become very slow and the staff are not trained well. The manager seems on it but twice in the last 10 days I have been and we have had to wait a long time to get drinks, order, and the main course takes while..... we had to ask is it coming on both visits. I hope they get this situation fixed as I love the venue and the food. Staff really do make or break a restaurant!

The food was nice enough but came very slowly, even though the restaurant wasn't busy. Value for money is poor, it's very expensive for what it is really some fairly good Italian cooking with unnecessarily fancy service.

Great dining experience. Would have scored higher but for the music. Why do you feel it necessary to have background noise. It serves no purpose whatsoever and is irritating. The ambience of diners chatting id enough to give restaurant atmosphere. TURN IT OFF!

The ambiance was lovely and the service excellent.
It is a limiting menu so we would not rush back unless there was another main dish fish eg salmon etc
Also there is no soup in the evening menu so again something that is I think v necessary and also missing!— badly! So we would only come back if these things were rectified

Terrible experience with the food and the service. The staff seems unaware of how to work in a restaurant, as specific details of our order (no cheese) was not followed; once the main courses arrived they delivered us some else’s order and the quality of the food is not conmeaurante to the price tag. I will never go back and after a two weeks stay in London, this was my only bad experience.

The place is really beautiful and I loved the environment. Starters were exceptional, but the cooked food was poor. I ordered a cacio and pepe, when it arrived it looked like a carbonara, very creamy and it was way too salty. It's a pity as this place has huge potential, but as an Italian I would not go back.

Food really took a while to arrive and one person from the group had to wait for extra 5 mins or so. Everyone being a polite person waited for that to happen before digging in and thus everyone’s food wasn’t as hot as it could’ve and should’ve been

Food was good, nice menu, service was terrible, very few tables booked but staff appeared to forget we were there. Took a few minutes to get noticed even though 3-4 staff walked past us. Only several disshes appealed to my guest, one of which was off the menu. nice interesting decor and food available was great but this needs to step up its game if its going to be here in a year.
