My wife, a friend and I had dinner and we were all disappointed with the quality of the food. None of the dishes were seasoned, so all lacked flavour. Very expensive too for what you get. I don't think we will be returning there soon.

Lovely Mother's Day dinner, the waiter was very jovial and had us laughing. Good Italian food, also has a room for functions or area that can be shut off for meetings. Always greeted warmly - worth a visit.

It is not cheap but the food was good and the service attentive and prompt Worth a stop though the parking is a bit confusing and it was very full lots of room and mid week it seems that no bookings are required

One of my favorite places on the North Shore, amazing at any time of the day: breakfast, lunch or dinner. Coffee is really good and they have cheap options for lunch with a 20$ formula including wine. Dinner is a bit more costly but you...More

“We endeavour to use the best of New Zealand’s ingredients to create delicious Italian classics with a modern flare”

– Caffe é Cucina.

Managing Host & Director Slav Licina has undertaken a 20 year culinary journey of hands-on experience on his way to setting up his own place, Caffe é Cucina. His wealth of knowledge and natural sense on hospitality make for a welcoming and relaxed ambience.

One of the most enduring lessons learnt through his culinary journey is that food & eating is an experience. Most Italians live to eat. The experience of sharing food with family & friends is one that is very sacred & should be cherished & remembered, which is why at Caffe ē Cucina we say, “when you’re here, you’re family…salute!”
