Great atmosphere, great dishes (i would point out just salad which seemed to me very summerish however was delicious). Definitely one of the best pastas in town. Totally worth every penny. I will come back!
Thank you

Fucina is impressive on entering, the huge front door and the decor make for a stunning entrance.
The staff are incredibly helpful and friendly, nothing was too much bother.
Unfortunately although the food was tasty there was a problem with the serving temperature. A few of our dishes in more than one course were at the most tepid and even cold in some cases. This was rectified at the time to our satisfaction but I expect better from a restaurant of this standard.

Fucina is one of the best Italian restaurants I've been to. We ordered different choices, and the food was outstanding, the service provided by the staff was immaculate. The timing between courses, to take the order and to bring the bill was on point. The only disappointment I have is that the portions are rather small. I still felt hungry even after having a starter, main and a salad to share. I am not a big eater, but I was surprisingly hungry after eating, especially pasta, which is a very filling type of food.

Aside from that the food was great, the price is alright, and the atmosphere and staff are excellent. I would come here again and bring my friends and family here. But the portion size is a concern.

Service has gone downhill. We ordered a glass of red wine three times because they didn’t understand and kept bringing white wine. Not that difficult. Food ok but not exceptional. Expect more for this price level.

There was an issue with the kitchen which meant that we waited around 30-40mins for our mains. I ordered the mushroom risotto (daily special) and received a bone marrow risotto which as a vegetarian was not ideal. That meant that I had to order a starter so that it would arrive quickly and even then it was out after my friends had finished their meal + they forgot the side salad I requested. There was no sense of urgency to resolve the issue for me which was incredibly disappointing. With all of the food issues, they were slow to offer more drinks and it wasn't even busy. I won't be going again, nor recommending to friends.

Beautiful, large restaurant with a warm, inviting ambience. Reminded me of New York restaurant interiors.
Attentive, friendly service.
Amazing food (we eat lots of Italian so know what we’re talking about) They were very accommodating when I told them I’m vegan.
10/10 from me.

Too salty, indifferent, overpriced - disappointing and definitely not worth it. Should have gone to Locanda Locatelli. Quality embarrassing compared to e.g. NY Italian restaurants.

The food was very expensive for an above average quality and for the price I paid the service was slightly overbearing. An enjoyable evening though.

Great look to the place - Took a client for dinner but pasta was the other side of "aldente" and cold by the time all three served. My veal Milanese was great and truffle chips but broccoli I think had one small piece of chilli but cold once all had been served. If you set the price point high and make diners phone and wait on hold just to confirm booking, be greeted by a doorman etc etc then the actual product needs to meet the rest of the "production". I have tried to be as balanced as I can. Staff were Ok but nothing more than at least expected. My guest asked for a tooth pick and was given the bill instead! About sums it all up.

Delicious food, but shame about the service. We were hurried through our courses despite the restaurant being almost empty, then forgotten about pre dessert. It was an expensive lunch - £150 for two people, with only one drink each.

The restaurant was amazing! Because I had previously indicated that it was my friends birthday they called the day before to confirm and ask if I wanted her dessert to have a sparkler. The food was seriously good and be wise we had stuffed ourselves on pasta and main, we could not make it to dessert, but despite they brought us some (out of this world great) vanilla ice cream with a sparkler. This was one of the best gelato I have ever had! In general the food was top class and the service excellent!

The dessert was the best part of the meal. All the pasta dishes were way too salty. I have never been to an Italian restaurant without some kind of green salad offered as a side dish. The antipasti dishes were stingy in size for the price and quality. The lamb was just average while we were hoping for the kind of dish we have had in Italy. Although the service was generally good and friendly we did not enjoy having alcoholic drinks pushed on us constantly, especially considering two of are party do no drink. Overall an expensive bog standard meal

My very expensive lobster risotto was terribly bland and under seasoned. Service was pretty impersonal too. Not once were we asked if we were enjoying or had enjoyed our meal. I expect better than that when I’m spending over £100 a head.
