Oxford is about 60 miles from London and 29 miles from Bibury. I stopped there with my friend for dinner at La Cucina, an Italian restaurant, on our way back from Bibury to London. It was the month of August and except for a few students on the streets, the town seemed rather empty. We drove past beautiful university buildings and museums to arrive at the restaurant.

The place was completely packed and not having made a prior reservation, we had to wait for a few minutes before getting a table. The wait was well worth it as the food was just delicious! Later we found out that the owner himself who was an Italian, was the head chef there!

We ordered aubergines as the main dish and a salad to share. The meal costed us about 40GBP and was truly worth every penny! I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys Italian food.
