I attended a staff Christmas party here for about 40 people. It was on a Saturday at lunch time, and since there were only a couple of other tables booked, we almost had the place to ourselves. We started with a drink on the terrace outside which was nice, despite it being a windy day. Once we were seated our orders were taken from the set menu, and the staff were very friendly and patient with the big group. I was very happy with the food - my entrée of calamari was really well cooked, and my steak done just right with great fries on the side. We had chocolate brownie for dessert. It was a huge serving and came just warm on the plate - yum! It would be a bit out of my way to go up to Caffe e Cucina for a meal, but I think the locals are lucky to have such a great place in their neighbourhood.

Like most italian restaurants you can expect a great bustling atmosphere inside. Parking was easy and since we went for an early family dinner, everything was served quickly. The pizza here is a must-try (esp the shrimp and pork belly one) and definitely the highlight of our meals. You can probably pass on the lasagne as it was nothing special. We finished with tiramisu which was perfect and left us wanting more :) Great friendly and professional service!

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!

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.
