WHY GO? Chef Andrea Genio presides over this very authentic Italian kitchen at JW Marriott Phuket Resort & Spa. Using vegetables, shrimp and eggs from local farmers, he mixes these with Italian black truffles, wild oscietra caviar from Azerbaijan and an exciting range of fresh gluten-free pastas.
WHAT TO ORDER? Cucina has the relaxed feel of an Italian trattoria but the cuisine is certainly of a higher standard. Genio is passionate about using the finest foods found in his country and presenting them in unique pastas such as the gluten-free lorighittas ai frutti di mare, a Sardinian pasta made to resemble a knotted rope served with Andaman seafood, saffron, green peas and tomato. Guests can create their own dinner by combining their choice of fresh pasta with eight sauces made to order. There’s a full selection of antipasti, bruschetteria and pizza alongside more glamorous choices such as wild oscietra caviar. Genio presents a black winter truffle menu offering grilled wagyu beef tenderloin with foie gras truffle croquettes. His signature rustic potato gnocchi is enhanced with braised lamb ragout and shavings of pecorino cheese. Try tiramisu made without cream for dessert.
Drinks An extensive choice of Italian wines to match the cuisine. Premium labels from other regions are also available.
