Real Google Reviews

After walking a stage of the Essex Way we were grateful it was only a short walk to Cucina Italiana. Our delightful waitress looked after us so well. The pasta was fresh with delicious sauces and we could relax and take our time to savour the meal washed down with a decent red. Light, bright decor with charming views of the local village church. It really was a 'godsend' ... as the local pub doesn't serve food, no chef see ! 


Peter O'Garr

“This place isn't being used as much as it deserves! Food is excellent, service is very good. We were there for lunch and only 3 tables being used, so atmosphere wasn't thrilling. I think it was just a quite day. I would certainly go more often if I lived nearer. Definitely recommend!
