Delicious and relaxing -these are the first words that come to my mind if we talk about Cugino's. I would definitely recommend this place. The location and atmosphere in the restaurant is relaxing,especially the patio with the most comfy chairs! The food is as delicious as it can be,even some kind of the food I usually don't eat has a... More

The decor is warm and cozy with a sophisticated feel. The service was top of the line and if you can request Giavani as your host then do. His service with his thick accent is absolutely charming. He makes you feel at home. Ask to be seated in the bar to enjoy the comfy rounded booths so you can snuggle... More

My husband and I were looking forward to our Saturday night dinner date at Cuginos which had been our favorite restaurant. While the food was excellent the service and the atmosphere was disappointing. We were seated outside which we had requested. It was about 10 minutes before we were asked if wanted a drink. There was also a dog with... More

My apologies for your disappointing evening with us on Saturday night. I would like to invite you back so we can continue to remain one of your favorite restaurants. I am sorry if the dog on the patio upset your evening. You are correct the dog was not a Fidelco or Guiding Eyes dog, however, it was a therapy dog... More

During our national sales meeting in May, we dined at Cugino's on Rt 4 in Farmington, and the dinner was marvelous. We were a group of about 20 hungry sales people, and after being in meetings all day long we were ready for good food, good drinks and good laughs. Cugino's came through for us, big time. Giovani was our... More

I love Cugino's, the owners, the staff and the dining experience. You will always get personal attention and service, and the meals are well prepared and presented. Become a regular at Cugino's and soon it will be your "Cheers" bar and restaurant - Mario, Giovani, Janice and the rest of the great group of people there will welcome you in... More

This is a wonderful Italian restaurant that we have visited many times - never once have we ever had anything that hasn't been outstanding. This trip we had the calamari which is far less battered than most fried calamari and it had a wonderful taste. I also had the "Mario’s Combination" which is a combo of Shrimp, scallops, spinach, peppers,... More

Our second time at Cugino's. We started with the best ever Calamari Fritta with capers, hot chili peppers, lemon and white wine. My husband loves this so much he had a double order as a dinner with salad. Then another salad with a crab-lobster cake. In the meantime, I ordered Grilled Chicken Mediterranean with spinach, mushrooms and truffle oil. The... More

A party of three on the patio. Enjoying the antipasto platter, crusty bread, great wine selection, penne alla vodka, Sicilian Cavatelli w chicken, pesto and sausage, and creme brûlée and gelato for dessert. The chicken was too dry in the Cavatelli but great flavors. Creme brûlée was burned a bit too much but had a rich flavor. Great ambiance. Friendly... More

We picked the restaurant based on curb appeal and were very pleased. The patio offered a pleasant, quiet place to eat in the shade. We both ordered salads because of the heat and humidity. The greek and chicken Cesar salads were generous and tasty. The hot bread was irresistible.
