The new version of CUGINI TRATTORIA ITALIANA must be what all restaurant owners dream about: open the gates without any further announcement, and within hours all tables are busy! Such was the success of CUGINI’s that even during the early weeks – commonly referred to as a ‘soft opening’- reservations were a necessity.
Cuigini Trattoria Italiana has been a fixture of the island’s restaurant scene for many years. The original Italian cuisine – always prepared a la minute! – has attracted a loyal following amongst repeat visitors and island residents. The original CUGINI was a landmark in Marigot’s Marina Royale. Outgrowing the facilities, a brand new CUGINI has been transplanted to the island’s Dutch side and the ever-growing Simpson Bay region.
The new incarnation of CUGINI TRATTORIA ITALIANA has been a huge success from the moment Toni Piccione opened the gates.
The location is fantastic: right on the shores of the Lagoon and along Simpson Bay’s Golden Mile, CUGINI is easily accessible from all major resorts. There is reserved parking for guests, eliminating the search for a secure parking spot – one of the common head aches in this area. And there is also dockage for yacht tenders. So, dear yacht owners and captains: feel free to send your guests and crew to CUGINI.
And for truly romantic souls: an original Venecian Gondola is waiting at the docks behind the Ristorante to take you through the nightly magic of Simpson Bay Lagoon, serving Prosecco and (if desired) CUGINI’s food, to the tunes of Italian opera.
