Cucina Cafe & Restaurant is an Italian restaurant conveniently nestled at the heart of Holland Village exuding a buoyant and cosy ambience perfect for an exciting meal for lunch and dinner to have a taste of authentic Italian cuisine.
Only go there if you purchased groupon voucher as the food is really expensive. But i realllly love their carbonara. I personally dont like cream based pasta at all. But only this pasta made me crave for more! Love their garlic bread also. Serve fresh and hot from the kitchen. Crispy outside soft inside with a nice buttery garlic. Nicely flavoured. Their forest mushroom soup is also a plus! Its very fragrant! I introduced to my friend and she like it there too! Can look out for their groupon voucher and try it out without burning a hole in your wallet! Tried before with my friend without voucher, one carbonara each and share the mushroom soup, iced water. BOOM. 60 bucks for all this.
Food is below average, except the carbonara which is reasonablly ok. but everything is priced at par with fine dining restaurants at MBR/RWS.
Most of the Menu items are not available, which they will tell you after you waste time to choose these and want to order. Imagine they would serve you red wine as chilled as beer.!!! :) and then put it in an ice bucket next to you. No concept of service. The new outlet at Asperia (Holland closed) is managed by too few a staff of 3 people for a 50-60+ cover restaurant. You get your water after 20/30 mins if you are lucky. The soup will be served first and once it goes cold you will get your accompanying bread and pepper and salt if you need.. Portions are reasonably smaller than standaard restaurants and with being overpriced a lot.
The staff wash all glasses without soap and only with water and scrub them with a scrotch brite. It at the entry to the restaurant. Didnt find them washing these off with soap at all..
Its not even worth going here even with groupon for the kind of food, quantity, quality and service. We are never going to visit again.
