Opened in 2011, this restaurant is a favourite with the island’s foodies. Serving authentic flavours created using fresh, hand-picked ingredients, Cucina Italiana, as the name suggests, is Italian cooking at its finest. The menu features a wide range of seafood, meat and vegetarian appetisers, including soups, salads, pasta, pizzas and risottos. An extensive wine menu is also available. Simple yet stylish decor, including brick walls and wood panels, transports diners to a trattoria in Tuscany; the wall art depicting Mario Puzo’s The Godfather is the highlight and leads to an exclusive section with a long oak table that’s great for family events. The parking area right outside the restaurant is a plus.
