If you like chewing on shoe leather, you will enjoy their steaks....Overpriced restaurant. Thailand is attractive for a number of reasons, include price/value. Why travel to Thailand and pay US prices? Last time I do that. Fortunately, I found out quickly the scam. They get you way out of down so you are trapped with limited alternatives. Greedy people...

Why bother going to an Italian restaurant in Phuket? Because it is damn good. Lasagna, pizzas, gnocchi, risotto, all very tasty, interesting, and relatively cheap. The chef is creative and talented. Service is rather slow but food quality compensates any mistake. Well done.

If you are looking for Italian food - look no further! Dinner at Cucina was met with outstanding service and meal. Had a great corner seat outside on the patio (with my name on the table!). Way cool. Dinner of Fritto Di Mare and a Risotto special (squid, fish, in a spicy sauce). Yum!!!

New chef great food What a vast improvement with the food after the new chef Andre came here. Excellent and authentic. It's far from town as JWMarriot is way up north of Phuket. But if your close by then it's worth while.

Had some great authentic Italian food recently at Cucina - which is located in the JW Marriott. As we are staying in the complex Cucina offers a good European balance vs the other options such as Andaman (grille), Kabuki (Japanese), Ginja (Thai), and Siam (continental). We tried the Antipasto platter, the Truffle Macaroni, the Spaghetti Vongole, as well as the... More

We arrived there very late due to the plane delayed; however, it was a great choice for us. Even though the restaurant was pack, we got a good service and great foods. The steak was too dry and a bit disappointment. I personally prefer a juicy steak. Beside that, every thing was good. We plan to go back sometime in... More

Really excellent food, freshly prepared by a superb kitchen team overseen by an attentive head chef. I love the black truffle ravioli so much I am going back to have it again on the last night of my holiday. I guess that says it all really......
