“Good food and great service”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

This restaurant was able to cater for a group of seven walking up with no wait to be seated. The décor is good with several interesting features. The only bad point was the wait for the food but it was worth it - the pizzas were amazing and the staff were very apologetic and provided a free group starter.

“Don't miss this one”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

We ate here on Thursday 61.7.2014. Quite simply this was one of the best meals in an Italian that I have ever eaten. Friendly staff, great food and reasonably priced. Cannot speak too highly of the whole experience. Well worth a visit.

“Always excellent!”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

La Cucina is the place we eat in most locally. The service is always excellent and the food is of a very high standard. The 2 course early evening menu for £8 is exceptional value for money, the portions are large and the food is always delicious. We often take our two kids age 8 and 6 with us and the staff are so friendly and accommodating with them. Our son adores the bruschetta there!
A pity there aren't more places in Bridge of Allan as good as this!

“First visit, certainly won't be the last!”
Reviewed 26 July 2014 via mobile

Having recently moved to BoA, my better half and I decided to celebrate our first 'pay day' in our new home by going out for a nice meal; we couldn't have picked a better place.

The service was impeccable and was only bettered by the food. The little touches, such as a passing waiter noticing our napkins on the table, unfolding them & placing them on our lap, made this a memorable evening.

Our starters were the Chicken Liver Pâté with toasted bread and a selection of bread with olive oil & balsamic vinegar for dipping; both were ideal ways to start our meal with the pâté being amongst the best I have tasted.

Our mains were Carbonara and the Pollo Roberto, the later being my choice. Again, simply superb.

The meal was all washed down with a delicious bottle of wine and an ice cold Peroni.

We cannot wait to come back.

“Excellent food”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

First visit to La Cucina and won't be the last. The restaurant is rather small but has lovely light décor and has a nice relaxed atmosphere. First impression was that the waiter was rather frosty, he was extremely professional but we just didn't get any initial warmth. However this soon changed during out visit and he actually was very friendly, the service itself was first class.
There was a special menu on when we were there and we chose to eat from this, however there is a good choice and variety on the main menu we definitely plan a repeat visit to sample some of the other meals. The starters were good sized portions, the food was fresh tasting lovely presented and hot! My haggis stuffed mushrooms were delicious and my husband thoroughly enjoyed his deep fried mozzarella sticks. Our main meals were served promptly - cant rate the pizza highly enough one of the nicest I have taste and the chicken stroganoff was lovely - served with rice it was a huge portion. My son had a half portion of spaghetti bolognaise, again portion was plentiful and tasted great,
The restaurant got busier as we were there but the service remained excellent and professional. All the food we ate was fab and it looked as though it was a popular spot for locals and its clear to see why.
Would recommend a visit to this lovely restaurant to enjoy the wonderful food on offer.
Great value for money, think this could be become a firm family favourite!
