Food was top class. Definitely recommend booking A table in advance, because it is extremely busy there, or at least it was when we came on a Sunday afternoon. Would highly highly highly recommend the DIY skillet.

The food here is incredible using only fresh ingredients and not over complicated. The desert menu is a real treat, specially with kids and I couldn't recommend it enough. Definitely one of my favourite places to eat in limerick.

We had a lovely family meal in La Cucina Centro. Food was excellent and the staff were lovely. I had a Nutella waffle to finish and it was big enough for my wife and I to share, and delicious. Overall, highly recommended.

Honestly food and staff are a problem
Starter was a 1 out of 10 we also received the starter before our drinks were served to the table. Pizza were terrible as we have had pizza before here if I had to compare to the last time 2 out of 10
We couldn’t wait to get out of the place
No hand sanitizer
And it wouldn’t be a bad idea to get your staff to dry the Cuttery in the back all I could here was that for about 10 minutes

We thought the quality of the pizza’s had declined which is unfortunate.
The staff were staring at us non stop while talking to one another which made us feel very uncomfortable.
I would only recommend the castletroy restaurant. It just has a better ambiance

Booked a table online and went with my teenage son and daughter on Saturday evening. The place was busy but still held a very high standard of social distances and everyone was well covered in visors or masks. Very friendly staff and the food was really good. We had been making food from the recipes they had shared during lockdown and were delighted with the real thing!! Thanks for sharing the recipes!

La cucina is always lovely, but due to restrictions, I felt we were under pressure. We were in and out within an hour, but we felt that because we weren't having dessert, we felt obliged to leave once we had finished our main meal.
The food as always was excellent and service was very good but again die to time schedule we felt we were being watched by the staff.
The ambience was a bit quite, not the usual buzz.
However, La Cucina is a lovely place and the kids love it there too.
Would recommend

Everything was great, the only issue was glass of wine charged more than advertised on menu. Mentioned it when paying bill. We were told the menus were printed with few prices at the wrong level. We had to pay higher price. No issue with us as we only had a couple of drinks, but if it was more of us on a bigger adults gathering it would have been annoying.

Online booking system very easy to use and table was ready for us upon arrival. Décor and ambience so lovely, and very relaxing. Found the prices a little high compared to other high class eating establishments. The big hit of the day was the freaky shakes, however a little overpriced I felt (personal opinion).

Tables are all on top of one another no way is there 2m social distancing, staff were slightly rude and we were all told we had to wear masks to our tables which is fair but then when all the tables are on top of one another it doesn’t make much sense? Kind of defeats the purpose

Very helpful, friendly and attentive staff. They made sure hygiene standards were being followed regarding Covid which was good to see. Arancini was delicious and the best part of our meal, the rest of the food was perfectly fine. Would have liked to try one of the Freak Shakes as dessert but I had no room left, but saw them served to some others and they looked amazing.

We traveled from Belfast to eat here since my daughter follows Lorraine on Instagram, and it certainly didn’t disappoint. The best Italian meal I’ve had outside of Italy. All the staff were very friendly and helpful, and very efficient at sanitising and resetting the table. We had a fabulous meal and if it wasn’t over a 4hr drive I’d be back again this weekend.

Service was great! Chicken burger was quite small. People beside me ordered the same and it was twice the size. Food was really tasty though! Everything else was perfect. Strict on mask wearing which was reassuring.
