Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

It was my first time in Cucino and I would certainly go back! We were a large group for dinner and the place was perfect, spacious and friendly. Nice food and nice staff, hard to know why it was quiet on a Friday night...

The food was good, the ambiance pleasant in spite of the low number of customers. The service was excellent. We were treated royally by a delightful Italian waitress and quite possibly drank too much wine as a result! I will definitely be back to sample...the evening menu.More

Cucinos is actually ( we think) part of the Marine Hotel in Sutton Cross. It is however, separate from the Hotel. We stayed in the hotel which was lovely but on our second night, we though we go to Cucinos for a late Pizza and...some Guiness. it was a good choice, the Pizza is Great, yes, Great Pizza can be made outside of Italy and cucinos is again proof.More

Dined on a Friday Eve. 3 wait staff to 3 occupied tables. Rest of the place was empty. All fine on ordering but starters all came out at different times. One was removed from bill as result which was nice. Prawns overly salty. Small lasagne...portion that was very crunchy around sides, perhaps reheated or left under heat lamp too long. Accompanying garlic bread was rock hard. Rest of food was just “ok.” Not up to usual standards. Charged €9 for one glass of Prosecco which seemed pricey. Wait staff are very nice but suggest they need to be more present and available in dining room and on the ball. Female irish team member was very professional. Stated a birthday on our online booking which wasn’t acknowledged and we weren’t going to make a fuss about it. Perhaps don’t request that info if you’re not going to use it. Won’t let this visit deter future visits but do hope the staff are more attentive and provide meaningful service and that the food is of better standard next time,More

Nice Italian restaurant (part of the hotel) at the junction. Handy car park especially on a busy Sunday. Staff polite, food very good and fast service. Expensive

Held a family birthday recently. Richie was super in helping organize. Shauna was an excellent waitress, so friendly and efficient. Food was delicious. We were given a section down the back with one table for adults and a separate one for kids, plenty of room...for all, without us bothering any other diners. Highly recommend for a family event. We’ll be back!More

We had lunch in Cucino's Restaurant on Sunday 28/4/19 and while the food was lovely the service was pretty appalling. When we arrived at the time we had booked they were only setting tables for a large group who had already arrived, It took some...time before anyone came to see to us and there were quite a few waiting behind us, the restaurant was only half full so they should not have been overstretched. The food arrived reasonably promptly but if we had waited for all 8 of us to be served the food would have been cold. The food was absolutely gorgeous and we were very happy with that unfortunately was let down by poor service.MoreMore

When we arrived the restaurant was very busy and people were being turned away. There was a mix up over our booking, almost certainly my fault, and yet a table was found for us. Throughout the meal the level of service and helpfulness of staff...was excellent There is a relatively short wine list and prices appeared reasonable by restaurant standards. For starters I had the bruschetta and my wife had the arancinni, for the main course we had sea bass and pork fillet. All the dishes were well prepared and full of flavour. However, the best was still to come and that was the tiramisu, which we both enjoyed and which can only be described as outstanding. This is a restaurant I would return to.More
