Cenare da Cuculia è come essere invitati a casa di chef Oliver e di sua moglie Roberta. I tavoli sono apparecchiati in un ambiente familiare, ma arredato con gusto. E fanno capolino tra luci soffuse e librerie. Tra tendaggi, parquet e quadri ricercati. La sensazione di essere coccolati come se fossimo a casa continua anche a tavola. Non c'è sensazionalismo o volontà di stupire con fuochi d'artificio nei piatti dello chef Oliver Betancourt, venezuelano di nascita, e giramondo. Con esperienza nelle cucine stellate di mezzo mondo, tra cui Francia e Spagna. Anzi, tutte le proposte sono studiate e realizzate nei minimi dettagli, con grande cura per la selezione delle materie prime: sempre di stagione. Ed è per questo motivo che il menu cambia spesso, quasi ogni mese. Le proposte sono perlopiù vegetariane e vegane, ma ci sono anche piatti di carne e pesce: ma solo se la loro provenienza è “eticamente sostenibile”.

Pane, pasta e dolci sono fatti in casa. E completano un menu che sa intrigare nella sua semplicità perché da Cuculia assaggiare ogni piatto equivale a fare un giro del mondo. Con il vantaggio di essere seduti in un piccolo e accogliente ristorante dalle sembianze di una libreria nel cuore dell'Oltrarno. Gli antipasti, dai tacos di sedano rapa con spuma di pecorino e cagliata fino
alle geometrie, gallette di frina di grano saraceno con mousse di ceci al rosmarino, sono solo l'inizio di un percorso gastronomico che trova poi in primi come il risotto al gorgonzola o i tagliolini al melograno mantecato su letto di salsa di finocchi e in secondi come il polpo in salsa di tamarindo con burrata pugliese o il burger di quinoa e piselli i piatti tra i più rappresentativi dell'idea di cucina di chef Betancourt. Interessante, e concisa, la carta dei dolci. Con proposte sempre nuove e adatte a un menu che porta per mano il cliente alla scoperta dei sapori e dei profumi più autentici del territorio. E non solo.

Good and ambiance were good. However, the promised 20%discount for booking through the Fork was not applied for unbeknown reasons. A bit of a disappointing end to a good meal.

We arrived a few minutes early for our reservation and told the hostess/server that we were going to a concert nearby. This gave us almost 2 hours for our dinner. Unfortunately, although our starters were served in a timely fashion, our main courses did not arrive for quite some time later, more than 1 hour after we had placed our order. Neither dish required such a long preparation. We therefore were rushed to finish our food in order to get to our concert.

The food is extraordinary. Very creative combinations that work very well together. However, it can be very slow arriving. An hour between appetizer and entree is too long. The service could be more attentive—although they are very nice, it is too long between seeing them.

We were a party of seven people that enjoyed different dishes that were nicely presently and prepared and tasted lovely. Ambience quirky but nice and staff very friendly.
A place that really gave value for money.
Thoroughly recommend it.
