Good Food

Although the food is good, the amounts are small and no starch (pasta, potato, etc.) comes with the meals. It has lovely décor and friendly service, but it is pricey.

My friend took me out for my birthday luncheon. We enjoyed our meal so much and the window table was special. Our waiter was the most accomodative. He let us take our time. Our salads were delicious. The presentation of the meal was amazing. I look forward to my next visit to Cuginos in the very near future.

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
