Cucina Restaurant says

It’s all about location here at Cucina, a fabulous Italian restaurant so close to the London Eye and County Hall you can practically smell the pizza from 135 metres up above the Thames. Appropriately designed for its setting, Cucina is far less rustic than its name might suggest. Indeed the deep, masculine tones of the interior with its high stacked built-in wine racks, moody photographic prints and comfortable patio brings to mind a meeting of British gentlemen’s club and slick Roman hotel restaurant. Created to appeal to the many different types of diner who find themselves on the South Bank; from the tourists taking a meander to the pre-theatre diners heading to the Royal Festival Hall, local Londoners with kids in tow to businessmen fresh from the Shell centre or en route to Waterloo, Cucina has a relaxed, amenable atmosphere and welcoming service.

This was a deeply disappointing experience. We booked an early evening table and were almost 10 minutes late due to a delayed train. When we arrived, the restaurant was trying to give away our table. If only we had let them and gone somewhere else, somewhere where the food was edible and the service was better.The food was not as good as in many motorway service stations, with claggy pasta and soggy salad all around. The service was really poor (eg stretching across us while we were still eating to clear the plates away). There was only one toilet for some 100 diners (inexplicably, the restaurant was very busy – probably because it was so close to the London Eye) and there was a permanent queue leading to the toilet door which was immediately on the restaurant floor. We took turns to cross the road and use the facilities at the Premier Inn because it was easier than the restaurant queue. Tired food, tired décor, poor facilities, poor service, high price. Only the company rescued the evening.
