After a long day we called in an order to Cucina Rustica for chicken parmigiana, lasagna, and bruschetta. They told us it would only take about 15 minutes and they were just about spot on with that. We sat at the bar a little while waiting on our order and everyone was very friendly, asked if we wanted a glass... More

The service is top-notch, with very friendly and smiling waiters who'd also advice you regarding your food choices. I am particularly sensitive to eating low-fat, healthy, nutritious and protein-filled fare, and they were able to satisfy my requirements. Very nice ambiance, too: each room is decorated in a very special way and the terrace is great (heated in the evening... More

Excellent but pricey. Great bar and service. Food and menu is Italian and quite varied. Reservations a must. Usually full of well off patrons.

Having enjoyed dining at Dahl & Diluca not long ago, we were eager to try this restaurant owned by Lisa Dahl. My friend had steak and stated that it nothing special. I tried a bite and agreed with him. My dinner, veal piccata, was fine, but not as good as I had hoped for. The portion of very thin veal... More

We walked in with no reservation just after sunset on a Thursday night. We were seated promptly in the outdoor courtyard area. The restaurant had live music in the courtyard just across from where we were sitting. I was happy with the wine selection. We had the Buffalo Mozzarella appetizer which was fantastic. The pasta I ordered was just "okay"... More

When we asked our innkeeper at the B&B where to go for a special birthday dinner for a party of four, he instantly recommended making reservations at Cucina Rustica- on the patio watching the sunset. It was the best decision! I am sad I cannot recall our server's name but she did a wonderful job. Rose petals were sprinkled on... More

Amrita was our waitress and we told her that we just got married and she got us an amazing free dessert and put roses all over our table. We talked about where we were going on our honeymoon, Greece and Italy,... More
