Went twice as the food was really good. Pizza has very thin base and great toppings and flavour. Tried tagliatelle with Gorgonzola and was superb. Atmosphere and staff great! Would go again..

We were recommended La Cucina by our local guide. After 7 days driving across Flores, we really fancied something different and Dino suggested Italian. It was fairly busy when we arrived but I immediately liked the decor and ambience. Unfortunately there were no seats left...More

We are 4 Spanish friends eating at La Cucina and it is so worth it. Pizza, pasta, brusccheta w/ fresh tomato, olive oil... The best restaurant we’ve been in Indonesia for sure. Totally recommended.

Traditional Italian pizza, good toppings, great crusty base. Not your heavily loaded Aussie pizza. Make sure to look at toppings, e.g.. No marine toppings on marinara???

Incredible views to the bay, cosy but on high season I´ll recommend to reserve ahead. Tuna salad is fresh and tasty, and spaghetti carbonara just delicious.

Great food, would recommend sticking to the pizza as pasta portions are a little small. Staff could be a bit more friendly but made up for by its good food and location.
