Our Story

Ina’s love affair with hospitality began at the tender age of 14, working in her aunt’s restaurant. The spark ignited, and she carried this flame through various small eateries until she found herself in the enchanting realm of Venice, gracing the kitchens of none other than Cipriani, one of the city’s finest establishments.

In 2018, Ina embarked on a new chapter, crossing the seas to the vibrant city of London. There, she added a glittering touch to her career, spending four years at the prestigious Michelin-starred Hakkasan. However, it was her husband’s unwavering support and encouragement that sparked the dream of La Cucina di Ina.

Determined to share the authentic tastes of Italy, Ina and her husband opened the doors of La Cucina di Ina, a cosy haven where every dish is a reflection of their culinary journey. As a family business, we pour our hearts into every detail, ensuring you experience the warmth and authenticity of Italian hospitality.
