When you visit this place, at least for this reviewer, the ambiance sets an expectation of something really special with this eatery. I bumped my review to three stars from two because of the décor. As with several other recent reviews, I concur that the service and food left something to be desired. Unfortunately I was mostly disappointed first with... More

Not consistent but very creative. One night it's awesome but the next it could be mediocre. Service is good depending on the night. Love the bar area during football season. Great comfort food.

Cugino's is my favorite restaurant and I miss it so much since we moved down South. When we lived in CT, I frequented it with friends and colleagues for lunches and dinner and everyone loved it. The atmosphere is classy and Mario & Giovanni (and all the staff) are attentive and genuine in making your dining experience memorable. I had... More

I would rate this place higher but they can be inconsistent. Service was good and the specials can be terrific. If you are on a budget ask the price though so no surprises. Good choice of wine and cocktails.

Glad you enjoyed it and we look forward to you coming back soon. We did have some staffing changes in the kitchen over the last couple of years which unfortunately did cause some inconsistencies, as you mentioned. We have an awesome team in there now and have been getting positive feedback from our patrons. ~Mario More

Love the ambiance, dark and intimate and wasn't too crowded. The pasta cavatelli is amazing. Service was okay. Dress code is casual. Next time I go I want to sit outside on the patio....seems nice and chill.

Dining at Cugino's was a very pleasant experience. The hostess was particularly friendly and eager to help us find the best location for my wife, daughter-in-law and our nine month old granddaughter. All of the food was very tasty. The bread and the tomato, olive oil and garlic spread that came with it were truly outstanding. The tiramisu was also... More

The food is delicious and the atmosphere is relaxing. The minute you walk in you are greeted by a smiling hostess, and staff that are friendly and accommodating. A great place to meet friends and family for a nice night out.

This restaurant and staff welcomed a group of 24 people and seated us in a separate room at large roomy tables. They offered a limited menu to our group but there were a good variety of dishes to choose from. The wine and beer choices were excellent and the wait staff was fun and never made us feel hurried.

I've eaten here before, but it's been a while. We booked a table for New Year's Eve. The restaurant was crowded but they made us feel welcome. We were just expecting an OK meal, given the fact that it was a holiday. What a surprise! The food was incredible. The prix fix meal was $60 for 5 courses and a... More
