When you enter the restaurant it feels like you are in Italy in a few seconds. The style is very nice. The atmosphere is charming. The food is excellent. The staff is very friendly. But the prices are high.

We visited Cucina at Marriotts hotel Deira for Valentine's dinner. The restaurant is a very cozy place, all the women were given a rose that evening. The head chef came to all the tables and greeted the customers. Food was delivered quickly. Quite lovely and recommended.

A friend and me had an early diner and went for the 4 course set menu with 2 glasses of wine. The food was excellent, so good value for money! The service was really good and friendly. The chef even came to the table to ask how it was. I would absolute recommend this place!

One of my favorite Italian restaurant in Dubai. The menu is small but the food is creative and excellent. The chef is Italian, and your food is authentic.

Thank you to the Cucina-Deira for an excellent dining experience with my wife. Although a seasoned, worldwide traveler, your fettuccini with chicken & artichokes in truffle oil was the best she had ever tasted (and my Risotto was out of this world, too).

This restaurant was suggested by a friend before I visited the country, and so I went here. The food was very good. The place itself, the ambiance, is very good too! The staff were warm and attended to all our needs.
