About Cucina - G&V Royal Mile Hotel
How to make a lady feel special - cheers Cucina
My wife's birthday and so I left a message on the booking form to let Cucina know that and they didn't disappoint.
From the second we walked in we were made to feel welcome, our host was Mateusz and he started by delivering a glass of prosecco for our table guests. Food was incredible, tasty and wholesome with a modern twist.
But before the evening ended, back they came with a lovely surprise for my wife, free treats and who doesn't like free treats.
Thank you Cucina, you made one birthday girl very happy and her three table guest very full with some quality food!
The Full Package!
They have everything covered, from the minute you walk in. Impeccable service, plus very well cooked & delicious food, from an excellent varied menu and a wine list to compliment it. Just that little bit of something special!
