Great experience and great food... Easy access, you can use the Valet service from the Al Faisaliah hotel, the restaurant is well decorated. I went for a lunch on Saturday when you have a large buffet with a great variety and the food was excellent. I would recommend La Cucina.

For a hotel of the quality of Al Faisaliah and a restaurant of the reputation of La Cucina, the variety and the quality of the breakfast is a bit below par as the breakfast would be more appropriate for a decent four stars hotel rather than the one for the Leading Hotel of the World category. Very expensive for what... More

I was impressed by the well decorated ceiling and the open kitchen. The taste was far beyond what you can get in Italy.The only thing that I will recommend is the 4 fromages pizza (not any other pizza). The portions are very small and one mail dish won't be enough to fill your stomach if you are hungry so you... More

The decor and the design and the seating makes you feel as if ur in Italy, don't miss Buratta cheese - truffle pizza - Thames sauce steak (+9 score). They have a non alcoholic red wine (7/10).

Stylish, trendy venue. Service unobtrusive, yet very attentive. Menu delightfully Italian, covering a range of classic flavours associated with this type of cuisine. Be warned - unlike most high end dining restaurants, offering small portions, this restaurant's portion sizes are substantial! We had four courses! Soup - wild mushroom with truffle and garlic croutons - a taste sensation. Pizzas all... More

I was just treated to the most amazing Saturday brunch at this beautifully clean and well appointed, upscale Italian restaurant. The selections were incredible. The main course hot dishes are now pre-prepared and on a hot plate rather than chosen from a menu which means they're not as fresh, which is a shame, but I simply chose more from the... More
