I had eaten at their sister property in Newport Beach last year, and actually accidentally booked my reservation at this location this year. But it turned out to be a bit of a blessing as this location is quite a bit bigger, and a quieter ambiance allowed for ease of conversation. Food is excellent at both, our selections included chicken... More

Excellent service and food. Great menu selections with all of the Italian staples. Wonderful cheese and meat selection. Quiet restaurant. Past all of the craziness of Main Street.

We were guests with a party of about 40 family and friends. The service was exceptional with that many people. Our wine & water glasses kept full if desired. The food was better than most Italian restaurants I have visited. Not my favorite cuisine. If you are in Huntington Beach looking for good Italian food I would recommend it. Only... More

After reading reviews on trip advisor, we decide to celebrate our wedding anniversary at Cucina Alessa. Our server was excellent, the bruschetta was tasty, and the wine wonderful. Unfortunately our dinner was a great disappointment. I had Grigliata di Pesce (prawn, scallop, salmon over linguini). The prawn was mushy and barely edible so the waiter offered to bring me another... More

Finding a restaurant that makes its own pasta with fresh sauces is a treat especially in an area where fish tacos, hamburgers and Mexican abound. During the week there are special prices on a few appetizers, drinks(lemon drop martini and Italian margaritas), and meals between 3:30 & 6:00. Calamari are tender in a great batter with a tasty marinara sauce.... More

This restaurant was recommended by a friend who had eaten here before. We had a party of 5, we all ordered different food and there was not one complaint! The meatballs were fabulous along with the tiramisu! The staff was amazing with wonderful customer service! This will be a priority when I visit here again,

One of the best Italian restaurants in HB. My favorite is the lobster ravioli. The seabass is great too, but it is not always available. The ambience is nice for all types, from couples to families or groups. It would get an excellent rating if the dessert was better.

We celebrated a company Christmas party at Cucina Alessa. A fabulous time was had by all! Our party was seated upstairs - which affords a nice view of Main Street and the Ocean. The food was wonderful as was the service. They were very attentive to our party and we never had an excessive wait. The selection of desserts is... More
