After riding the london eye, we were looking for a nice place for dinner. Cucina looked like a good place so we sat down. The restaurant was not too busy and the the food was a bit bland, but decent. The servers were speedy in food delivery, but our food grew cold quickly, and they mixed up almost all of the orders. The servers seemed to be rushing us a bit, which I did not like at all. I will not eat here again, nor will I recommend this restaurant to a friend.

It’s all about location here at Cucina, a fabulous Italian restaurant so close to the London Eye and County Hall you can practically smell the pizza from 135 metres up above the Thames. Appropriately designed for its setting, Cucina is far less rustic than its name might suggest. Indeed the deep, masculine tones of the interior with its high stacked built-in wine racks, moody photographic prints and comfortable patio brings to mind a meeting of British gentlemen’s club and slick Roman hotel restaurant. Created to appeal to the many different types of diner who find themselves on the South Bank; from the tourists taking a meander to the pre-theatre diners heading to the Royal Festival Hall, local Londoners with kids in tow to businessmen fresh from the Shell centre or en route to Waterloo, Cucina has a relaxed, amenable atmosphere and welcoming service.
