The staff was very friendly and seem to actually like their job. It was open during lunch time which was great. The food was tasty, needed a bit salt but its a personal preference I guess.

Nice atmosphere and good food but not all that outstanding. Many pizza and pasta options. Limited beer selection, wine also available. Good for families but not the best "date night" location. Average prices. Not a bad value when you want a good basic meal for the family.

Went in for a meal at lunchtime for 2 and left 45 Euros lighter for a poor quality Italian AL Salmone that was very disappointing. Came with a free glass of wine, well half small glass. The sides of chips were quite frankly horrible and resembled McDonalds fries, and were tasteless. The desserts were good. Cappuccinos were from a dolls... More

Not sure if this restaurant has moved to downtown, but I found this location near the river. It may look like just take-away if you peer in the window, but they have extensive seating in back. I visited here twice during my stay in Limerick and I have to say I was impressed both times. I had a pasta dish... More

Pizza's are amazing here but the desserts are to die for, especially the red velvet cupcakes. The coffee is delicious too although a little overpriced, at €3.80 for a moccha. Supply soya milk too so thats always a plus!

We had eaten at La Cucina a few years ago so we stopped in again today. I eat mainly a plant based (vegan) diet so I had a veggie pizza without cheese. I expected it to be good if not great but I was wrong ....it was the best pizza I ever had and the crust was 15 marks out... More

La Cucina in a great place to spend some time and enjoy good coffee and all kinds of delights. I recently enjoyed a great breakfast of granola and fresh OJ and left with a smile on my face😀

Had the misfortune of deciding to go to dinner at this 'cafe', on a recent visit to Limerick. My advise, 'AVOID', only saving grace of a poor supposedly Italian meal with the service from a girl called Dominica, otherwise a waste of hard earned cash.

Visited here on Saturday last on recommendation from a friend. Crowded and cramped and freezing by the door. Coffee was very good if stone cold by the time food came even though it was prompt and service good. We both had salads one at 9.50 and one at 13.50. They looked lovely but chicken was very skimpy on both. In... More

Overpriced food with rude staff. Management should brush up on their skills too. Non existing manners across all staff and no atmosphere. Such a waste of a nice spot in town
