Had been looking forward to eating at Fucina after reading great reviews, but it really didn't live up to expectations.

Food was good. Service wasnt great. Really hate it when they bring you your mains when you’ve haven’t finished your starter...? Then they charged 13.5 service charge! Nice

Too salty, indifferent, overpriced - disappointing and definitely not worth it. Should have gone to Locanda Locatelli. Quality embarrassing compared to e.g. NY Italian restaurants.

The food was very expensive for an above average quality and for the price I paid the service was slightly overbearing. An enjoyable evening though.

Table service pleasant but incorrect dishes and drinks delivered to table several times; food not as flavoursome as hoped (sorry!); though really enjoyed the early front of house service which was excellent and attentive

Great look to the place - Took a client for dinner but pasta was the other side of "aldente" and cold by the time all three served. My veal Milanese was great and truffle chips but broccoli I think had one small piece of chilli but cold once all had been served. If you set the price point high and make diners phone and wait on hold just to confirm booking, be greeted by a doorman etc etc then the actual product needs to meet the rest of the "production". I have tried to be as balanced as I can. Staff were Ok but nothing more than at least expected. My guest asked for a tooth pick and was given the bill instead! About sums it all up.

Delicious food, but shame about the service. We were hurried through our courses despite the restaurant being almost empty, then forgotten about pre dessert. It was an expensive lunch - £150 for two people, with only one drink each.

The restaurant was amazing! Because I had previously indicated that it was my friends birthday they called the day before to confirm and ask if I wanted her dessert to have a sparkler. The food was seriously good and be wise we had stuffed ourselves on pasta and main, we could not make it to dessert, but despite they brought us some (out of this world great) vanilla ice cream with a sparkler. This was one of the best gelato I have ever had! In general the food was top class and the service excellent!

The dessert was the best part of the meal. All the pasta dishes were way too salty. I have never been to an Italian restaurant without some kind of green salad offered as a side dish. The antipasti dishes were stingy in size for the price and quality. The lamb was just average while we were hoping for the kind of dish we have had in Italy. Although the service was generally good and friendly we did not enjoy having alcoholic drinks pushed on us constantly, especially considering two of are party do no drink. Overall an expensive bog standard meal

The food and drinks were excellent. The front of house was fine but the waiting team and especially the lead were quite dour and unfriendly. Not enough to stop us returning but not what we would expect from such a quality establishment

My very expensive lobster risotto was terribly bland and under seasoned. Service was pretty impersonal too. Not once were we asked if we were enjoying or had enjoyed our meal. I expect better than that when I’m spending over £100 a head.

I am a frequent visitor to Fucina and this last experience was extremely poor. I had made a mistake in my booking which was originally for 2 but we arrived as 4. We were quickly accommodated . On ordering the food we had requested some butter with the bread. This only arrived after a third request. Min course as arrived very late.

Why do you charge £8 for table water?
I felt this meal was all overpriced for what was unremarkable food.
£30 for a piece of meat with no sides/salad or a garnish?
Hope it stays fine for you...

Business luck for 7. Very good service. Tasteless starters - tuna tartare tasted of nothing. Octopus main was overcooked and soggy. Indifferent, indistinguishable bed of mashed black beans and some gravy. Horrible. Colleagues had sea bass (overcooked and dry), with various starters. No one enjoyed their meal. Will not go back; do not recommend.
