Had a wonderful dinner sat on the balcony in La Cucina, I had a delicious Bianca pizza for main with Tiramisu as dessert. My date who accompanied me was also overjoyed that La Cucina offers gluten free pizza, it "made her year". Exceptional service from the team, Max, Damian and Eve. Will definitely be back again! Hopefully soon.

For a 5* hotel, this restaurant was overpriced and underdelivered on flavour. The gamberoni starter was too oily, the truffle chips were soggy and not hot enough, and the bolognese was poor. For a luxury hotel, an in house Italian restaurant should be of better quality. I would recommend this for families and children only

The food was wonderful. Service excellent, thank you Lee and the gorgeous young brunette guy in a suit FROM Poland. You were very attentive and we never felt forgotten. One thing I would say is the carpet in the restaurant isn't particularly flattering. The panceta in the carbonate was very fatty and not flavoursome. In general though, lovely food and excellent service! Thank you!

Beautiful food and friendly, chatty staff. Quickly rectified a mistake to the dessert and included an extra as a goodwill. Would definitely visit again.

Food bland and of poor quality, seafood pasta had hardly any seafood and was very dry. Felt like a canteen, not what you would expect from a 5 star hotel

Wrong thing serves for starter. When main arrived it was tasteless and the seafood pasta dish had 4 prawns, 1 scallop and 3 mussels and no flavour. Sent back and was replaced

Very disappointed on my recent visit, seafood linguine did not contain the ingredients listed on menu, king prawns were more like shrimps, no clams, mussels were tiny and one scallop. My husbands cod dish was also very poor, a very small thin piece of fish which did not look like cod.

Service was very good, staff attentive and willing to assist, food was nice but average, I enjoyed my dinner but was not “wowed” felt it was very overpriced for what we had which is why I do not feel it was good value - £13 for a risotto which is resonate however £6 to add in chicken was very overpriced for me. Calamari was average , could have been presented better and not worth £9. Overall good experience but food far to overpriced.

Food and service were excellent. The only thing I will comment on was the Parma Ham pizza...it had no tomato sauce on it. Every pizza should have a sauce on the base. We actually heard another family make the same comment when we were sat at the outside bar after dinner.

Brilliant, friendly service but the food was mediocre. Vegetarian lasagne was loaded far too heavily with cheese and other dishes were average

Excellent service and food although not much atmosphere due to the difficult covid rules but the staff went above and beyond to make us feel covid save.
