Took my mother for a Sunday drive through Napa and to have Dinner. She has been to Italy several times. She and I both agree, Cucina Italiana has the best Italian food we have ever eaten. Somehow Stefano is able to take simple ingredients and pull flavors from them that i have never known. 5 stars... read more

My wife and I for Valentine's Day ate at Cucina Italiana. What a wonderful surprise to have gourmet Italian food out in a country location. Very friendly people served us. Chef keeps a spectacularly clean kitchen. The was served immediately once chef placed the food on the counter, and the food was quite hot with steam coming off. The price... More

My family and I are new to the area. We decided to go on a scenic drive today- Black Friday. I found this restaurant. At the time it was not busy so I was greeted by, whom I think to be, Chef Stefano. I read no review of this place, but I had this gut feeling to check this place... More

After riding throughout the Napa Valley and Lake Berryessa our group rode into the parking lot of Cucina Italiana. We saw the sign out front about the free appetizer for motorcycle riders, so we stopped in. As we got off our bikes we had no idea they were closed. Out walked Stefano and invited us in and made us feel... More

Based on the reviews from Trip Advisor I called this restaurant to make a reservation. I was asked by the man with an accent, who we now believe was the chef, "where are you staying?" I replied that we were staying in down town Napa. "He said it would take 30 minutes" I said that was ok. Well it took... More

Immediate seating for a couple at 6:45 on Thursday. Attentive wait staff, also very knowledgeable on the menu. The soup & calamari were a great start. The recommended wine was spot on. Gnocchi was on the mark with grilled chicken. Would return as the pricing was reasonable for such quality. Thanks for a great evening.

I've stopped in Cucina Italiana during my last travel in Napa Valley. My friend Michael, who lives there, told me about a special place where to taste a real italian food. The restaurant is located on the Lake Berryessa, a pleasant natural reservoir situated in Napa County. The restaurant is managed by Chef Stefano, who is a real italian "cuoco",... More

I have always wanted to go to Italy. I now feel as though I have. Everything from the appetizer to the dish and even the bread was so good! This food was so completely authentic! Wow! Our table was literally groaning with pleasure. First of all we went on a Wednesday and they weren't even open. The Chef Stefano was... More

Always pleased with whatever we order,but my husband cannot resist the ciopino, which I can't resist dipping their wonderful bread into. Chef Stefano is amazing and such a gracious host. The rack of lamb is succulent, the vegetables always perfect, salads fresh and did I mention they do lunches to take on the road. We have never been disappointed, nor... More
