“Perfect Italian meal in Ubud”
Reviewed 14 June 2014 via mobile

We dined here based on the TA rating and Uma Cucina definitely lived up to it!!

The setting is perfect, we sat outside under a beautiful full moon - so romantic!!!

The service was excellent with multiple wait staff attending our every need, ensuring we were enjoying our experience.

Great selection of beers for my partner and delicious, exciting and new cocktails for a change!!!

The complimentary bread and balsamic was great. We ordered goats cheese zucchini flowers, braised octopus and kingfish crudo for entree, all of which were exceptional.

For mains we had the crab spaghetti dish (absolutely amazing) and the beef ragu pasta. The favour and tenderness of the beef was perfect. The only criticism we had was the pasta was slightly short of al dente (a bit too hard, but not unbearable).

To finish it off, after asking if they could call our resort to have them collect us, Wita the manager offered us a transfer with the restaurant/resort free of charge which was great to save us time.

Highly recommend for fine dining in Ubud - we loved it and will return when we are back in Ubud.

“Best Pizza Ever!”
Reviewed 8 June 2014

It is rare that you walk away from a meal speechless. well that is what happened when I visited Uma Cucina Ubud.
Before visiting this restaurant, the best pizza I had tasted to date was in Rome, So I was shocked when they delivered a pizza so rich in flavor, it became the best I have ever had.
I highly recommend ordering the spinach pizza when visiting them. Also, don't forget their amazing granita!

“Great food and atmosphere, but pricey”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Food was delicious and original and the atmosphere relaxed and romantic in a nice setting. The cocktail I had was also delicious, made with cardomom which was as good as any I've had in London. As you would expect with a hotel restaurant, prices are high (£30-40 per head for two course meal abd drinks).

“Sunday Bliss!”
Reviewed 25 May 2014

Sunday is our glutton day and today it was lunch at Uma Cucina. We've heard the rumors about the really good pizzas so now we had to try it for ourselves.

Spacious private parking and a warm welcome greeted by the staff. What caught my eye immediately was the open & spacious setting, modern tasteful decorations and a delightful breeze.

We ordered our food while sipping our enormous freshly squeezed orange juice and tucked in a complimentary home baked break with olive oil and balsamic.

Beetroot with Italian soft cheese, hazelnuts and pickles..sweet, smooth, crunchy, hint or acidity, perfecto!

The pizzas didn't disappoint at all, on the contrary, what amazed us in a positive way, was the dough of the pizzas, not the regular white dough but almost sour dough, crunchy but sturdy with a good bite. As for toppings we had one with spinach and Italian Camembert and one with prosciutto, both very yummie!

Italian double Espresso and desert and our Sunday started impeccable.

Service was friendly, attentive and professional.

Money well spent. We will be back soon, to try some more...

“Excellent food and great ambiance ”
Reviewed 24 May 2014 via mobile

I went to have lunch there with my friends and we ended up staying for hours. The food is so good; our favourites are the grilled king prawns and the pizza, dont forget to order the mango drink (i cant remember the exact name). We had really nice experience :)
