“My favourite restaurant!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014 via mobile

I live near Balloch and I would choose this restaurant above any other local restaurants or even one's in Glasgow city centre. An absolute gem of a restaurant.

Staff are lovely and the food is fantastic. Definitely recommend a visit.

“Short Tasty Lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2014 via mobile

I went with my family during a road tour of Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park. I had a lasagne, my sister, a pepperoni pizza and I can't remember what my mom had. The service was good and the waitress was not intrusive. As we were tourists, we asked a few questions about the town and where to find certain locations and she gladly helped us out. Food was well presented and was tasty. Good value all in all. The only downside is a limited menu, and with the addition of some more choices or special dishes, it would easily been a five stars from me. However, I would still go back if ever back in the area.

Thank you for dining at Cucina during your tour of the area. It's great to hear you enjoyed the food and service. We offer our good value set menu but we also have an a la carte menu to choose from if requested during the day. Apologies if this was not expressed, however it's great to hear you would like to return.
Thanks

“Italian?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014

My second visit to this restraunt , there's nothing wrong with the food service etc , except it just needs a little bit something extra , like a couple of signature dishes , Brusheta that doesn't look straight out of a packet , better quality ice cream , the words home made would go a long way on the menu , for example home made caramel shortbread , instead of 4 in a pk from the local supermarket . Sorry but I home my next visit will be a better experience . And no music :(

We work hard to offer good homemade food, atmosphere and friendly service at reasonable prices. It's a shame to hear that we have not met your expectations, however we appreciate your comments.
