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.

Very, very good.
Innovative, high quality ingredients, beautifully plated dishes. Menu is short and reflects the chef’s strong attention to detail. On the floor the team were attentive and witty.
Don’t hesitate.

Original and well presented plates. Not your everyday tastes so it's not for everyone. Nice environment inside the restaurant. Best service we've ever encountered. Would absolutely recommend for something different.

Everything was cooked to perfection, beautifully arranged, the staff was attentive and nice and they had a detailed knowledge of the food and wine they were serving and were more than happy to answer questions. We had a wonderful time and will definitely come back.

A very special place for a meal and certainly our favourite in our 10 days in Tuscany. Plenty of inventive and beautifully prepared vegan and vegetarian options (but also some meat / fish). We love vegan/veggie food and are used to high standards living in London, but this tops it. And prices were ridiculously reasonable. I cannot recommend this place highly enough. An absolute must for yummy fine dining in a very comfortable and relaxed atmosphere with excellent service.

Generally the service is fine however it is not acceptable to charge €3 p/person for bread. Some of the dishes is too salty as well.

The staff was charming- attentive without being intrusive, the food was creative and yummy, the place is pretty and quaint, my uncle who is a food snob came out over the moon with the experience in a way I haven’t seen him in a while and very reasonably priced at 30 pounds a head (including a 20% discount for booking between 7 and 7.30.) if I had to split hairs I would say lovely though the jazz music was in the background it got louder as the evening wore on and as a result people got louder and we found there was a bit of an uproar at one point in the evening but to the staff’s credit they appear to noticed and put the music down and it went back to being atmospheric and just the right kind of busy. All in all a great evening out and will go back again before this week in florence is out!

The food is great for the price and extremely well plated. My only criticism is that we were pushed out to make space for other guests.
Restaurant
Dear guest, From 19.30 until 22.00 with one dish each one, and after 20 minutes you payed, we don't think you was pushed.. Anyway, Thank you for your review, because it's mean that you was so good in our place, that you don't want to leave. We wait for you again in a more relaxed day. cuculia
