I am a frequent visitor to Fucina and this last experience was extremely poor. I had made a mistake in my booking which was originally for 2 but we arrived as 4. We were quickly accommodated . On ordering the food we had requested some butter with the bread. This only arrived after a third request. Min course as arrived very late.

Fucina is the perfect restaurant to celebrate a special occasion. Great service, although they could ask if you're finished before clearing plates!

Why do you charge £8 for table water?
I felt this meal was all overpriced for what was unremarkable food.
£30 for a piece of meat with no sides/salad or a garnish?
Hope it stays fine for you...

Business luck for 7. Very good service. Tasteless starters - tuna tartare tasted of nothing. Octopus main was overcooked and soggy. Indifferent, indistinguishable bed of mashed black beans and some gravy. Horrible. Colleagues had sea bass (overcooked and dry), with various starters. No one enjoyed their meal. Will not go back; do not recommend.

Food is up and down. Some dishes, like mushroom risotto are fantastic, tomato basil salad also very good. Seafood linguine was lacking seafood and taste. High prices red wines, white wines are moderately priced.

We ordered a burrata that basically came alone. we were supposed to eat burrata alone with a spoon (never seen that in my life).... When we asked for some bread, they brought us 2 half slices of toasted supermarket bread and then charged us £4.5 for that. That is just very poor thinking! They should rather increase the price of their dishes and include bread when it’s needed to eat the dish, like burrata (and not 2 tiny pieces per basket but and actual basket of bread, like in any restaurant).

This restaurant is in a great location, presented in a lovely condition and very clean, service is also very good.

That’s the good part - the food and pricing is totally out of order! We ordered chicken pate as a starter and what came was a flat bread with the thinnest smudge of something that looked like pate but had no taste.

The seafood pasta again was disappointment - salty and oily hardly and seafood!

My friend ordered the carbonarra - again tasteless and dry!

Lobster risotto for 40.00 was a total waste of money!!

Sadly we all left feeling cheated and let down. There are far better places that offer true quality of food in an authentic taste also! Try Sale Pepe in Knightsbridge, Da Marios in South ken to name but a few!!

We are happy to pay money for quality food but here it’s literally overpriced “microwave meals”!!!

I would avoid this place if you are looking for lovely authentic food.

Excellent service from the moment we approached the outside door. Front of house quickly took out coats from us and showed us to the bar as our table was being prepared and we arrived early. We had fantastic cocktails from the bar and the food was amazing. Would recommend.

Met friends for dinner at Fucina. Noise level unbelievable and left before desert as we couldn’t hear ourselves think. Wine prices were ridiculous starting at around £45 for pretty ordinary stuff. Food was OK but nothing special. One of us ordered green pasta which didn’t look green and was covered in a rich cream sauce. Bad experience in the loo at Marylebone Station later!

Somehow the order made by one of the guests was totally forgotten. No attempt was made to make up for the underwhelming service by eg throwing in some free coffees or anything at all. Food was actually quite good.

Food was delicious, however was disappointed with the service. The top 3 wines on the list were out of stock, our coffees were cold and had to be sent back. We therefore reduced the optional service charge and the waiter chased after us and questioned us on the street to get a justification. On top of this they questioned our Scottish backnotes, which is quite frankly ridiculous.

The food and general atmosphere at Fucina were really good. The service was hit and miss, it took a long time for staff to take our order a the start and at dessert and, even though there were a lot of staff on, it was difficult to catch their eye when we wanted something. Our main was delivered to the table whilst we were still eating starters. They took it away (after we asked them to) but when they brought the mains later it was clearly the same food that had been sitting under the heat lamps. The staff were very apologetic and gave us a discount however this is too nice quality a restaurant to be making those kinds of mistakes. Overall the food was good but the service needs to be improved.

I've been to this restaurant a few times, and I now have decided that it's too expensive for what it is on Sunday night we had two main courses, some bread, some olives three vegetable side dishes, one glass of wine. We shared a desert and sparkling water, and the bill came to £100. I think that's a lot of money considering we only really had one course each. The the decor is very nice, it's comfortable , but the music is always too loud and I have to ask them to turn it down. Sometimes they do it without problem, other times it's just an issue that they seem to have a problem with. The food is delicious, but in summary, too expensive for what it is
