We had eaten at La Cucina a few years ago so we stopped in again today. I eat mainly a plant based (vegan) diet so I had a veggie pizza without cheese. I expected it to be good if not great but I was wrong ....it was the best pizza I ever had and the crust was 15 marks out... More

La Cucina in a great place to spend some time and enjoy good coffee and all kinds of delights. I recently enjoyed a great breakfast of granola and fresh OJ and left with a smile on my face😀

Had the misfortune of deciding to go to dinner at this 'cafe', on a recent visit to Limerick. My advise, 'AVOID', only saving grace of a poor supposedly Italian meal with the service from a girl called Dominica, otherwise a waste of hard earned cash.

Visited here on Saturday last on recommendation from a friend. Crowded and cramped and freezing by the door. Coffee was very good if stone cold by the time food came even though it was prompt and service good. We both had salads one at 9.50 and one at 13.50.

Overpriced food with rude staff. Management should brush up on their skills too. Non existing manners across all staff and no atmosphere. Such a waste of a nice spot in town

I had dinner in three occasions last January. The staff was attentive and very nice. The dishes were big and really enough. The place was a bit small but we were very comfortable.

I really enjoyed the food at La Cucina. The staff as previous posters have said arent the best. Totally disinterested except for one girl who was trying her best to keep the whole show going. No interaction with customers. Cosy restaurant with excellent food. Best go as a party of 2 or 3 people. Space is at a premium.

This place was excellent. Small and cozy; wonderful food!!! Authentic Italian and very accommodating, even if a little crowded; but that's the charm.

A lovely small restaurant with great fresh food! Was in with my wife and baby - not much room for the pram, and it was made very welcome! Popular with students (deals available) I'd recommend!
