Cucina also takes pride in their seafood station that boasts the freshest of its kind from oysters to salmon.


Making it a truly ideal dining destination for the whole family, Cucina offers something special for the kids, as well. Notes Chef Giuseppe, “We have also included a kids buffet, which is every weekends for lunch. We are focusing on this because this is also a Marco Polo standard that we have to offer kid’s buffet, that is more on the healthier side. Meaning you will not see fried fish, fried chicken, a big macaroni sausage or hotdogs. We are trying to be on a healthy side."
