The Australian John Lethlean, 18-08-2010 "I liked Andre's Cucina and Polenta Bar just a little bit even before stumbling in, because rather than simply opening a restaurant to cash in on fleeting celebrity, Andre Ursini pursued an idea that was new, and different, and makes a lot of sense. It helps to like polenta, of course, and I do. Very, very much. And Ursini is punting there are more like me. He's done a pretty good job of giving the space a fresh, northern Italian feel without resorting to cliches. ... What Andre's lacks in service polish it makes up for in warmth and goodwill. More importantly, the menu - built around polenta, but only to a logical point - is tasty and well prepared from quality ingredients. ... Andre might not have come out of MasterChef a winner, but he's done OK."
