We have dined here the last 5 visits to Cape May and have enjoyed it every time. Located steps from our hotel on the corner of Washington street at the beginning of the outside mall. Reservations are a must during the busy summer season. Service is professional and friendly. My husband enjoyed the crawlfish fradiblo and spaghetti and clams in... More

Thought this was going to be a good restaurant, we were very disappointed. The place is very pretty. Sort of vintage style. I wanted the Chicken Oreganata but I can not have butter makes me sick so asked if it could be made with olive oil instead, I make this dish myself and know it can be made either way.... More

Cucina Rosa was a great find in Cape May with reservations a must. While small, some would say close, the restaurant is charming. You forget there is a busy mall outside in the heart of Cape May. The biggest problem is parking. BYO beer or wine, half portions available! We had a delightful evening. Our servier was professional and welcoming... More

We come here every year for a large family reunion. The service is always great, they play along with all of our shenanigans. The food is nice and they always offer specials. The upstairs party room is perfect for large groups. The location is great, it's right at the end of the promenade by lots of shops.

Last year we had a good dining experience so we decided to return. Two people in our party of six ordered the grouper/special of day. Both reported that their meal was terrible. I ordered tiramisu and would not recommend it. Overall, we decided not to return to this restaurant-very disappointing.

Make a reservation as soon as you arrive in Cape May! The food, atmosphere and service are excellent! It is a BYOB which I like because I can bring my favorite wine to enjoy. We are a family that is used to our Italian Nonna's cooking so when we say "its excellent"....it is excellent!

From appetizers to dessert all was spectacular. We had veal parm, petit filet, mushroom trio, veal piccata and tuscan filet. All were wonderful ! Service from Roger and... More
