I have dined at Caffe E Cucina 8x or so. Each time have a fabulous overall experience - with outstandingly friendly & professional service & excellent food. Top that off with a great interior - Caffe e Cucina is a winner. Highly recommend for consistency, service & quality food.
Albany is not somewhere that we would normally travel for dinner (living in Waitakere), but had a couple of hours to fill in on Wednesday night there, so booked into Caffe e Cucina and very glad we did - how lucky Albany dwellers are to have such a great restaurant on their doorstep. Couldn't fault the service or the food and want to make particular mention of the Duck & Mushroom Ragu Pappadelle - absolutely superb! Look forward to the next time we have an excuse to spend time in Albany.
Didn't get to try the food here, but from the other reviews of Caffe e Cucina we thought we would try the place last Saturday night, we arrived at around 7pm and were immediately seated...and that was that...in the 20 minutes we were there not one waiter came over to our table, while we waited to be served the table next to ours had people obviously waiting for their left over pizza to be taken away, in the end they wrapped it up in tissues, and the icing on the cake was while we waited to be served a women and her children were seated at a table next to ours, they were immediately given glasses of water and a waiter returned to their table to take drinks orders, needless to say we got up and walked out!
Second visit to Caffe e Cucina and cannot fault it.
Service is outstanding. food awesome. So great to have this quality at our back door
We must have gone on an off day - the food was lukewarm, dried up and not very good at all. The kids fries tasted like old cooking oil and the lamb shank was dry and cold on top but burning hot underneath - maybe microwaved?
Desert did redeem itself though - the chocolate brownie was very good but sadly we probably won't go back to Caffe e Cucina!
honestly really surprised by caffe e cucina. Really obscure setting in Albany but I was genuinely impressed by all facets of the dining experience. Took my partner to caffe e cucina for lunch - I had the lamb shanks and she had the salmon gnocchi. Ample portions and both very tasty. The service at Caffe e Cucina could also not be faulted...a restaurant well worth seeking out.
Despite being in the area for years, never really heard a word about caffe e cucina at all until my boss discovered a few weeks back.
Rather than take his word on it, thought I'd give caffe e cucina a try on my own terms. It's really quite hard to find but well worth seeking out. Caffe e Cucina is certainly one of the better restaurants around in this part of Albany.
What a surprise and what a find - in Albany of all places! For the many times I have driven past this rather bland looking exterior, I assumed Caffe e Cusina was just an every-day cafe. Not so. Not so at all!
Drop in and you will find a spacious and modern restaurant serving Italian cuisine from breakfast through to dinner. We were sat outside under the louvres on the leather banquette seating, which was comfy and certainly not cramped.
The service was a little slow but they were fairly busy with local business folks having power lunches!
The food was pretty good - the only thing letting them down was the chicken in my caesar salad was cold and cut a little on the chunky side. But overall it tasted great.
