Seriously €3.50c for takeout cappuccino! The coffee is not good so warrant that price. Worked and lived in Dublin 2 , rarely had to pay that price..Served cold, asked to be reheated but to receive it so scalding. Staff need training on customer service

Tried two nights in a row to get in and it was full. So I can’t tell you if the food is good or not. The place is small and that is why I could not get in. The only reason we tried is because...More

I came here for dinner with a group of friends in March 2018. Italian restaurants are usually great for the conversation and for a convivial atmosphere. La Cucina did not disappoint. The place was crowded, even for a Wednesday night. The crowds did increase the...More
