I visited the hotel on the 13th of February to celebrate my partner's birthday. I was not sure if we would get a table at the restaurant as it would be taken over by couples celebrating their love. But we did!
We had first a drink at the bar before dinner and then head upstairs. The guys at the bar told us to do not worry about the bill as they would add it to our dinner. Nice touch! Nothing to worry then. We booked an early dinner as you need to be realistic when you try to book places at the very last minute.
We were welcomed and taken to our table, offered appertives and menus. We kindly accepted and then we started enjoying. We had starters, mains and fried courgettes as side dishes (must have them) so therefore we spent a good 2 hours in the restaurant.
I had a great time with different wines for starters and mains. I have been reading reviews saying that service is slow but in my opinion if I go to ENJOY dinner I would expect to be at least 2 hours in a restaurant. People has been writting that service is slow but I do not go to restaurants to be rushed and out in an hour! I go there to enjoy the time and talk with my partner. If you do not like the concept of talking, relax and enjoy a nice dinner without being rushed, maybe then Cucina is not your place.
Will be back many times as I have been before.
