Cucina lacked my favorite dishes, like anything with veal. I could have cooked the New York steak myself, except that I would have added a wine reduction and mushrooms.

We wanted something causal but with nice food and Cucina worked very well. Nice menu with imagination for the vegetarians in the party. Pizza was a little overly crisp, but my partner liked it that way. The owner and staff were very friendly. My fish was very good.

I always enjoy Cucina. It's small,cozy, the menu is very unique and the food is always good, fresh and nicely presented. The wine bar in the back is a nice place to meet friends.

I ate here with my mother last week. We originally came in to get take out but the rest of our party wouldn't get home until an hour and a half later so we sat down and ate at the restaurant. I got a glass of prosecco and the Insalata di Bettole: An arugula salad with roasted beets, avocado, toasted... More

This place is always busy, but they always manage to make room! Food is wonderful, winelist extensive. Ambiance in the main dining room enhanced by the open brick pizza oven. Love this place!

We had read the reviews and decided to try this place out. Everyone mentions the free bruschetta and it is nice but I think it is more about the comfy feel of the place. Had the roasted beet salad which was outstanding. The had the linguini fra diavalo very nice, spicy, great texture. Could have had a bit more sauce... More

The service here is good, the menu approachable. Wine list is reasonable, and the ambiance is good. But the pasta is AMAZING. One can have a proper Italian meal with starter, pasta, protein, desert... and wine for a reasonable price. Kid friendly, but not kid noisy. Staff is pleasant and knows their food.

Cucina filled early this Sunday evening with families seeking quality Italian food. Complementary bruschetta for the table started our delicious dinner. A Margareta pizza from their wood fired Neapolitan style oven was wonderful. Pasta dishes were flavorful, bountiful and very satisfying. Definitely worthy of a return visit.
