My boyfriend and I are constantly trying new places...cucina bella had very good reviews, so we thought why not try it out. I went to the restroom when we arrived and as I exited a server was coming towards me. I moved out of the way apologized and was given a dirty look. We waited over 5 min for drinks... More

Ordered the stuffed mushrooms which were outstanding. Then came the brasiole over pasta. The meat was bone dry and stuffed with breadcrumbs, cheese and spice largely absent. It mashed... More

The name of this restaurant in itself brings many memories. Every December for the past 5 years, my father and I dress in our finest and enjoy a production of The Nutcracker. Following the ballet, we continue the date-night at Cucina Bella, where the ambiance contributes to the feeling of a special night. Though the menu has a wonderful Italian... More

Cucina Bella had pretty good Italian food. The atmosphere, the server we had, and the price were pretty good. I would go back.

You ever go to a restaurant and the experience was not up to expectations? Then you have to decide with all the choices out there whether it is worth giving them a second chance? You will not have to think twice about going back to Cucina Bella. The food is consistently good. The service is also great. I would highly... More

I have been to Cucina Bella 3 times now in the past 4 months. Each meal has been great. Appetizers, entrées, desert, all of it. Like a lot of people I tend to order the same thing when I find a good dish somewhere. In this case I did have the same dish twice, but decided to change it up... More

We liked the restaurant and have gone back. It has a great atmosphere and the service is good. Has a nice bar area for people to meet that is separate from the dinning area.

Service was excellent. The food was excellent. We had a great meal and a nice relaxed time. we spent extra time hanging out and talking and felt no need to "get going". The arrabiata sauce was out of this world! We also loved the chocolate molten cake. It wasn't gooey inside, but still very yummy with the gelato.I would recommend... More
