Food was fab and I can’t remember having such a positive experience in relation to the staff and service before. Served by two very friendly men (sorry didn’t catch the names) and a lovely girl making the milkshake. Everyone was so pleasant and so kind to my niece who I brought with me. Would highly recommend!

We had to wait 20 mins after our reservation time for a table. Once seated our order was taken quickly for our mains.
When we finished eating, we waiting 10 minutes for our table to be cleared and when they came we mentions we had to leave in 30 minutes time but wanted dessert.
Even after mentioning our rush, it was a further 10 minutes before our dessert order was taken. We needed up having to eat dessert very quickly and run out the door- literally.
The food was lovely but definitely need to take less reservations to be able look after their guests

Great to hear back eating at La Cucina Centro. Food was excellent as always and our party were delighted to see some of the old favourites back on the menu - especially the aubergine burger and the waffle. The service was very friendly.

Seemed to be more geared towards an Instagram / Snapchat picture generation. Not sure if it was Covid related but we found the menu offering very limited. Although there was lots of milkshakes and sweet combinations, nothing you could hang your hat off. Service was very efficient, couldn’t fault it. Not a lot of meaty main course choices

This the second visit to La Cucina for my my partner and I and like the first time it was an amazing experience from start to finish. Very safe (Covid19 regulations), upon arrive we we greeted at the door by a very friendly host, once our certs were checked he escorted us to our table, we were then greeted by a very friendly and bubbly waiter. (I don’t have names, i didn’t see name badges) The portions were large and well worth the price. 5*. We will definitely be back!

We had booked for a celebration dinner the menu is very much reduced and we were very disappointed and it does not tell you anywhere when we asked we were told as there were only two chefs working we couldn't have the full menu but Castletroy were serving it. If we had known we could have booked Castletroy.

As always we had a lovely experience, a small bit disappointed with no fish or steak on the menu but understandable in the current circumstances. Looking forward to eating here again soon when restrictions lift again.

Absolutely superb! Great waitress too - didn’t get her hame but she was a little older and was wearing a Christ,as mask on Sat night - great Craic!

Only issue was a table who were screeching their heads off which meant I found it hard to hear my boyfriend.

Overall it was superb - we will be BACK!

My bosciaola was very salty. It was still nice but another pinch of salt and I don’t think I could have eaten it.
The prosciutto starter was average. I was looking forward to a caprese salad!
It was pretty cold too not that comfortable which is unfortunate because I really like the decor and ambiance! The timing of our seating was strictly adhered to.. felt very rushed at the end! I felt I wouldn’t go back after our evening. I think your restaurant has huge potential but just not there. Table service was at a great standard
