This restaurant was recommended by a friend. While nothing was really bad, nothing was really that great. Food was OK, but it was probably too tight and noisy for the cost/ quality equation. Tables are extremely close and you are part of the conversations around you. Probably will not return.

We hadn't been to Cucina Bella in a couple of years and on our anniversary evening we decided to go again. As the first time, the food was amazing, the atmosphere conducive to a wonderful evening celebration, and the staff was thoughtful and superb (Sharon was her name). If you ever are in the area, this is a MUST place... More

We really enjoyed this restaurant. It had great food & service at more than reasonable prices. My husband ordered the lasagne and he said it was the best lasagne he's ever experienced. I had one of the specials of the day - orange roughy on a bed of spinach with capers, roasted red peppers and olives in a wine sauce... More

We had a party of three for 7:30 pm and arrived promptly. Even though the restaurant was crowded, we were seated in a little over 5 minutes. Cucina Bella has a very local neighborhood feel to it. You feel comfortable there and immediately sense that it is going to be a great experience. We can't say enough about our waiter,... More

Let's see, if you have a restaurant that serves really tasty Italian food, priced reasonably, the place will be busy, so go early, go late, go on a week night! I bring my friends knowing they will be pleased with the menu offerings, the service and the rustic ambiance (I remember when the location used to be a convenience store... More

Cucina Bella USED to be one of our favorite restaurants in the area until our last visit a few weeks ago. We arrived around 6:30 without a reservation but were told 30-40 minutes. That was not a problem. Took a seat at the end of the bar (right next to the hostess station) and ordered a drink. 45 minutes went... More

This downtown Algonquin restaurant has great food, great service and reasonable prices. The food is made right there in their visible kitchen and every dish is handcrafted. Maggie the manager makes sure that each dining experience is awesome! Parking is on street only and don't come up 31 from the south during rush hour.

If you have not experienced this place, GO SOON!!! The food is so fresh and delicious. Service was excellent and 1/2 price bottles of wine on Thursday, it's a no brainer. Good for a date or the family!!
