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).

Very busy restaurant. Good service. Food quality doesnt match the value. Way too expensive. Paid €85 for the starter, main and dessert for 2 persons.

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.

Authentic Italian restaurant in the heart of limerick city. They also have a quieter more intimate restaurant in Castletroy which I also love. I have been coming to this place for years and am always so impressed. There is a huge emphasis on top quality amd authentic italiam ingredients.I spent nearly a week in Rome and did not eat anything that came close to anything I've ever eaten at la cuccina. 10/10 from me!!

I absolutely loved La Cucina. My partner and I both agreed, it is the best part of our visit to Limerick and would be the ONLY reason we would ever return. The food is brilliant, the staff is so friendly and helpful, the restaurant itself it’s beautiful. I cannot wait for my next visit.
