My wife and I dined here to celebrate our anniversary dinner and also chose Cucina as the restaurant to conclude our final evening’s stay at the JW Marriot which was very special.

We both love Italian food and were exceptionally pleased with how truly authentic and respectful of Italian food preparation and ingredients the meal was. The chef took huge pride in his meal preparation and was a pleasure to see him greet each table individually.

The service was exceptional. Our hostess, Patcha and Bew, took great care and effort to ensure our dining experience here for our anniversary was special. We both loved how our table was reserved with names written on a wooden framed chalk board. The waiting staff were extremely attentive and made this a very memorable evening and shared with us the excitement of the celebration.

A really pleasurable experience, highly recommended to anyone with a passion for authentic Italian food and particular thanks to Patcha for looking after us, showing us so much warmth and hospitality.

A highlight of a gesture holiday, every dish that arrived was excellent with the vegetarian Carpaccio outstanding. Great Italian food with a real twist.

We ordered a total of 5 courses starting with
1. Gamberini on a layer of Papa pomodoro - the prawn was cooked just nice and bread soaked W tomato was tasty.
2. Rucola Salad (Just so that we can feel less guilty)
3. Tomato Gazpacho w Crab meat. Tasted amazing and too generous w crab meat. Would hv been nicer is there was more soup.
4. Wild boar Ravioli - let's just say that maybe I am not such a fan of Wild Boar. Pumba is safe from me
5. Gnocchi w lamb ragout - our second fav dish of this whole selection. The ragout tasted of a dish cooked with much effort and attention.
Chef Andrea is very hospitable and I will venture to say patient as we could clearly see him struggling with the service staff. Food was sitting on the counter for minutes before someone comes by to pick it up. Whole night we could hear the service bell being rung like a call for prayer.
Overall, we enjoyed our time there and would go back if we come back to Phuket.

We stayed at the JW Marriott Resort in Phuket for two weeks in February and ate at Cucina 5 times because we liked it so much. Chef Andrea and Patcha, our server and hostess, made it a culinary and service pleasure each time.
