Was greeted and given a selection of tables for 5 which was a nice touch, and the service was prompt but not intrusive. The food itself was absolute divine, yet very reasonably priced. I'd highly recommend the duck pasta! I would defiantly go there again for any occasion.

Looking for an italian in Oxford and came across La Cucina It was late and we were kindly given the last table before closing. Food - pizza/pasta was ok but nothing to write home about. Have been told that this restaurant is normally better than it was on this occasion so will revisit when next in the area and try... More

Went to this lovely place with a friend as it was within walking distance of the centre as we both are fans of Italian cuisine. I ordered the Orecchiette and my friend wanted Bolognaise and was delighted that there was a choice of pasta available. The food was delicious, we chose a nice red wine to go with the pasta... More

The UK is full of restaurants claiming to make "authentic" Italian food and in the end it's just a lie to catch people. Different story is La Cucina in Oxford: amazing Italian food, quality and products. I had a Mozzarella di bufala alla caprese and spaghetti alla carbonara. A glass of limoncello at the end. All good. Good service as... More

We had two pasta dishes which were among best Italian entrees I have had anywhere other than Italy (and I live in Boston, which also has its own North End, famous for Italian cuisine). The orecchiette was flavorful with a bit of bite. My paste with porcini mushrooms and rocket was irresistible. The wines are reasonably priced, and the cappuccino... More

The restaurant was warm and inviting, the atmosphere was lively but not overpowering. The staff were first class, ensuring everyone had drinks, the food was perfect and delivered to each of use without prompting even when a number of us changed seats before the dessert.

It has a lovely atmosphere and it's nice to see the food being made. The service is good. Prices vary but there are deals that can make it good value. The food is very good, without being pretentious, and the helpings are generous. it's noisy- for some reason many restaurants seem to play music too loud for conversations, and it's... More

The restaurant was not expecting us on a busy Friday evening the week before Christmas but they accommodated us after a local recommended them. The starters, mains and desserts were all fresh and absolutely delicious and the bottle of house red was a perfect compliment to the food. They have won awards for their service and we were not surprised... More
