“Amazing Italian”
Reviewed 24 February 2012

I am totally in love with Italian food, and can have pasta at anytime of the day and I hate it when someone's messes up with my pasta! La Cucina is one of my fave Italian restaurants in town. It's a little expensive, well, after all its in a 5* hotel! The ambience is very good, open kitchen with the chef tossing the pizza base before it goes into the wood burn oven is a wonderful sight!
I try new items everytime I am there, and I must admit, it has never disappointed me. Service is very good, soothing and calm ambience, food is great...over all, an amazing experience.

“Beautiful setting but food was very average...”
Reviewed 3 January 2012

We ate here on Christmas day with family and while the place has an immediate impact with lovely decor, ambience and friendly and attentive staff, the food was a let-down.

“La Cucina is the best restaurant in Kolkata!!!”
Reviewed 17 November 2011

We have stayed at the Hyatt for a few years now on business and the hotel has become our home. Chef Sen and his team especially Anand who is a TL at the restaurant are outstanding! We have never been disappointed and Chef Sen is always presenting us with new dishes to try, each one absolutely divine.

We cannot fault this restaurant at all. Make sure you try the 'Melting chocolate' it may not be on the menu but chef sen will happily bake it for you and I guarantee that you will be blown away! Pizzas are delicious and Sunday long lunches with wine are superb with great variety. Make sure you had to La Cucina for a great dining experience.
