Overview

Simple Italian flavours, done exceptionally well

Italian cuisine is defined by its generosity of spirit, and at Cucina Vivo, that’s exactly what you can expect to enjoy. Inspired by the cliff-top restaurants of the Amalfi Coast, Cucina Vivo serves up authentic Italian favourites and inspired new classics – all in a cheerful, relaxed setting overlooking the pristine tropical pool. 

Our impressive wood-fire pizza oven provides an eye-catching centrepiece, and on a balmy evening you can’t go past dinner on the open terrace. Whether you’re looking to enjoy a casual dinner with family or celebrating a special occasion, Cucina Vivo is the perfect place to share great food and conversation. And of course, thanks to our strong Italian spirit, the service is second to none. We wouldn’t have it any other way!
