Pretty nice place! Food is slightly pricier and taste is good. I ordered the carbonara as I've read reviews that is it excellent. However, upon tasting it, it tasted very average. The sauce was not as flavorful and the meat tasted a bit funny. (Had the flavor of ham) The risotto was very salty but well cooked. Had they cut back on the salt, it would've been perfect. Gnocchi tastes great!

The food here is pretty good. Very typical home style Italian if I had to describe it. Simple and tasty, almost fuss free. Would definitely head back whenever I'm in the area. Reservations might be necessary cause the restaurant was full ard 7:30pm. Only thing that grinds my gears a little is that water is charged at 50c/cup. No refills. Perhaps it should be mentioned in the menu or by the wait staff.

it was my first time there. only tried their pasta dishes, wellington, creamy black muscles, bread basket and their dessert platter among the 4 of us. dining in time was limited to 1 hour due to table reservation. food: 3.8/5 service: 3.9/5 ambience: 3.5/5 price: 3/5 would I come again? price is at the higher side. maybe during special occasion. is it worth it to try? why not. try for yourself and be your own judge. 😃

Decided to try Kucina on a weekday lunch. Staff was helpful kind enough to let us dine in with time restriction. There is a wide variety for you to choose from the menu. We enjoyed ourselves dining here. The food was amazing especially the sirloin beef strips with button mushroom in veal jus sauce. The desserts was delicious too.

Dropped by for some late lunch, there’s wasn’t much crowd so food was served quite fast. Portions were very generous, we could not finish at the end & requested staff to takeaway the leftovers for us. Drinks were refreshing, perfect for the hot weather. Super love the spinach tagliatelle, goes brilliantly well with the sauce. However, the prawns did tasted a little fishy & not to my liking. Truffle fries was hot and crispy, truffle balance was just right & not overpowering. Pizza was savoury, crust was just nice. It was neither too thick nor too thin. Overall, we had a pleasant meal. It’s pricey but worth the money.

Came here for dinner, I will say 4.5, very very good Muslim Italian resto imo. Staff are friendly and nice while the ambience is really nice. Food was amazing, had pizzas, pasta, steak, seafood soup and truffle fries. One of the better fries place and pizza was good. Had the squid ink agnolotti, can do more with the squid ink imo. Lasagna was really good too! Downpoint, seems like they're really good with their tomato based menu but also mean it gets pretty gelat after a while since everything eventually tasted similar. Price point is also slightly steeper tbh. Portion is very good though, not too small also not too crazy

Gotta drop a review for this place! Tried their special menu for Fathers Day. It was my first time trying Beef Wellington. The taste was PERFECT! The beef was well seasoned and the pastry compliments the taste. I also tried the Ravioli, the perfect taste hit my tastebud. Pricey but worth your money! My dessert was Creme Brulee. Not too sweet, just nice! Definitely coming back to try out other menu. Best Halal Authentic Italian restaurant ever 😁 Customer service was tip-top too. Their servers were helpful and able to communicate clearly. Just that i understand that coming at 8pm is a bad time since some food and desserts were sold out.

Everything we ordered were pretty good! Grilled octopus was chewy but not rubbery, beef tenderloin doneness is just right👍Truffle fries also a must order! Service was fantastic as well, we only left near closing time and no staff tried to chase us out 👏

Gee I'm late to do a review when I was here on 25th July 2023 with my sister. Been here before twice before they made renovation and I loved the food. Had lunch there. Made a reservation for two at noon. After we are seated near the entrance, we were handed menus. My sister had the chicken which was sous vide, I had the seafood risotto which I topped up for the option of having squid ink in it, we shared the fried platter of something (OMG I'm sorry I can't remember the names though, but just take a look at the receipt which i posted too), a tall glass of ice peach tea for my sister and I had a hot cup of mint tea. The server got our order right but I was sent green tea instead. Still, it was tea so I didn't want the trouble of changing it. My sister said the sous vide chicken tasted a bit dry, but the accompaniments underneath and the sauce was good though. She quite liked the puree underneath her chicken. The deep fried platter of white bait, calamari, prawns(if I could remember or if I was right), these were lightly battered and deep fried. Came with a wedge of lemon, garlic aioli (correct me if I'm wrong😛) and marinara sauce in a cute sauce dish. My sister ADORED the marinara sauce for the fried platter. My RISOTTO, WAS 😍😍😍😍. It was cooked perfectly, deep in squid ink colour, the SCALLOPS and MUSSELS fresh, rice grains weren't mushy and seasoned well. I had a perfect plate of OCEAN for lunch 🤭😜😋😋😋 For a halal risotto to taste LIKE THAT, I'm amazed. Because I've eaten those which weren't halal, it was usually the stock in which it was cooked in, white wine and rice were what make or break a good risotto. I kept raving about my risotto to my sister so many times that she told me TO BEHAVE 🤪 Service staff could do with more smiles and a bit more attentive especially during lunch hour and Chef Gero's kitchen staff who were cooking are kinda eye candy 🤭🤪 Overall, we enjoyed our boujee lunch. The price isn't for everyday everyone's cup of tea, but you're paying for quality. Will be back next time.

Thumbs up to the owner for the couple’s night event! Halal and affordable 4 course meal with superb service. Celebrated my wife’s birthday and they gave a delicious complimentary tart. Good experience and will definitely return! Kudos to Kucina team!

Beautiful interior decors, a restauraunt of class in the heartlands, waiters and waitress were professional, charismatic and proactive. Burrata pizza and crab cake were filled with flavours while the steak risotto was a soulful experience (steak texture was similar to pulled pork which was amazing, melts in your mouth!) . Would come back again!

Went for their first couple’s night. The service was very good. Nice and friendly staff. The food honestly exceeded my expectations. Since the food was already decided for us and we only needed to choose the secondi, I was very skeptical at first as most of the food contained ingredients I would normally avoid. However, both my wife and I cleaned the plates on every course as it was very delicious. Only feedback I have is that it would have been good to state the price of service charge and gst in the promotional video or menu so that we would roughly know the full price. Overall, we really enjoyed the ambience, service and food on our date night. Such a lovely experience indeed.

The last that I dine at kucina was wayyy before covid and before they did the renovation! So, it was nice to be back again, but this time to try their couple’s night menu. First thing first, the interior now looks a lot better and brighter! A little late but better late then never. Heheh. Went on the 29 Sep just for a random date night that was all booked for. As such, I only saw the menu when I was at the place itself. Honestly speaking for the couple night’s menu, I was afraid I would not finish the food or to say like it, because there are some ingredients that I would just avoid and not eat. But well, every plate of the dishes was wiped clean. It was that good! I do have one small feedback, probably the pasta portion could be reduced just a little. To make a little more space for the next course of the meal. Other then that, fantastic! All in all, the food standard is still there! We enjoyed the ambience, service, and food! Till next time!

Although it does not have that fancy dining atmosphere. But the service was great and attentive here. Best thing about this place, it is a legit halal Italian dining. Hearty food with decent price. Enjoyed my meal here. Would definitely go back again.

Awwwwesome! Best dining experience ever! Birthday dinner for 6 pax. Highly recommended. Exceptionally delicious food. Excellent service. Restaurant manager Priya was amazing; attentive, professional yet warm and friendly. When she learnt that it was our first visit and not knowing how big the portions are, she gave excellent suggestions and advised when we had ordered enough. She was spot-on. Every dish was delicious... ravioli, squid ink linguine, boat pizza, truffle fries, and the highlight, Tomahawk. Not one scrap left. To top it off, they gave a surprise present: tiramisu complete with a birthday candle. So yummy! They definitely over delivered. Thank you Kucina for a lovely evening. We will return.

Nice cozy ambience with attentive staff. The La Barca pizza was simply the star of the meal while the carbonara was a bit too heavy going for me. Overall, the food was fantastic albeit at a higher price point.

Had an absolutely great time bringing my team over for dinner. Top notch service from Priya, the restaurant manager and awesome food. Priya was extremely helpful from the very first phone call and went the extra mile to cater to my requests. Everyone went home with a smile on their face, and that said a lot! Definitely recommended for everyone to try them out!
