The service was great, staff are always hospitable and willing to assist us happily. The food was lovely, as always. We have never had a bad experience at the Cucina restaurant North Adelaide. It is lovely to see the manager interacting with diners.

This is around the 5th time my hubby and I have been to Cucina North Adelaide and we have usually experienced great service and great food. We have particularly enjoyed the owner flitting around the diners, making sure everything is ok. This last time at Cucina was a little different however. I'm not sure if the chef has changed since last dining there or not, but I was not overly fussed about my meal this time. I ordered the salmon with rosemary potatoes and confit tomatoes. The salmon was cooked to perfection but the potatoes were a disaster. They had no flavour of rosemary at all and were overcooked, almost soggy, sitting underneath the salmon. The main reason I chose this dish was the description on the menu - this was nothing like what arrived on my plate and I was very disappointed and left half the meal on the plate. The service was generally good but I felt a little rushed, almost as if we had a certain amount of time to eat and leave. My husby ordered his usual pale ale little creatures which the female waitperson actually had no idea how to decant into a glass - poured it straight into the glass from the top and he ended up with half a glass of foam! it's often the little things that make the overall experience and I felt that they have slipped in their service. I don't know if they have changed hands as the owner (male) was no where to be seen and I'm not sure if I will return to Cucina North Adelaide.

this restaurant is always good, good food and service. the only issues I had was when booking thru Quandoo the notes that I put do not flow thru to the restaurant, as we wanted to book 8 people but could only book 6 online and we needed wheelchair access, and when we arrived they only had booking for 6 and advised us they do not get to see the notes/comments that are entered or they are not sent thru to the restaurant. Would be a good idea to also send thru the notes/comments that people when booking have made. Regards Gerry McAvoy

Stunning food. Had the chefs plate for 2. The oysters with that pesto sauce and a little bit of sea salt was wow. Chorizo sausage was pretty good. Only recommendation was maybe just a bit more olive oil to go with the balsamic dressing. Main crumbed chicken breast melt in your mouth and dessert that mousse cake loved. All with nice wine made for a lovely dinner. Service was excellent put us on nice table by window.

The restaurant is well located with good access to free parking. Staff were unerringly friendly, efficient and knowledgeable, and there was a genuine "italian" feel to the place (and that was what we were looking for). The food was excellent and the wine recommended by the staff was just right. All in all a very pleasant experience and we will be back.

Menu is versatile with a wide range of choices. Friendly staff and efficient service. Peter and Maria ensure you are comfortable, looked after & treated like royalty. Food is excellent quality and a good range of wines from around the world. Could not think of a nicer place to go.

We had a very positive dining experience about three weeks ago at Cucina. The food was very good, the service equally good and the staff was attentive and friendly. It was a busy Saturday night which I think is a real test for any restaurant. It was good value for money and they passed with flying colours.
