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.

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

Lovely restaurant, serious tasty food - full of flavour - and outstanding cocktails. Staff were friendly and service was prompt. Weekend bottomless drinks also a great deal and a nice bonus to a daytime meal.

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.

We love living in Marylebone and we have lots of restaurant choice. Fucina is a great newish addition. My only criticism is the music? Why have background music? It’s so annoying and unnecessary. Great restaurants never have canned music

It is the third time we were in this restaurant. And the conclusion is always the same : good food (not amazing), terrible service. Waiter has no knowledge over the products, couldnt describe the menu when asked to.
Good dishes : carpaccio, veal, pasta with short ribs ragu.
Poor dishes : pannacotta (tasteless, poor texture), grilled chicken (super salty)

The atmosphere, decor and ambience is a lot better than the food actually tastes. The menu sounds the part, and the dishes look the part but the food lacked to impress with it being standard.

My mom and I had a great dining experience at Fucina! I started with the tuna tartare and I HIGHLY recommend it - absolutely delicious. For mains, I had the chicken dish with a side of sweet potatoes (YUM) and my mom had steak with peppercorn sauce and a side rosemary fries. Amazing!

Great place!! I gave it 5 stars. It had a nice modern, chic atmosphere - really beautiful inside. What we ordered was excellent and my boyfriend, who is Italian, said that the menu was very authentic and loved the food. It was his birthday and the staff wrote "Happy Birthday" on the dessert plate which was a nice touch. Overall delicious food and excellent service - there were many staff and they were very attentive. I will be back with more of my friends :)
