We were looking forward to trying the Italian Cucina based on the wonderful reviews on Tripadvisor, but unfortunately our experience was not as good as other reviewers. I called early in the week before for reservations and when I did not hear back by late Wednesday I called a second time. I was told that the Saturday request was not... More

Homemade food which is plentiful and delicious. Good service and owner/cook comes around and greets the guests. Very small, homey atmosphere. Good for a romantic dinner.

New menu every day, this small restaurant is absolutely delicious. Their salad was served family style - super yummy, then four of us shared 3 pasta dishes and we not only had a little to take home (big portions!) but we were all very impressed. Will definitely return.

Found this hidden gem today. We just returned from a wonderful dinner in New Hope. Everything was amazing from the friendly staff and Owner to the dessert. Weird as it sounds one of our favorites was the salad. Crazy, I know but amazing. That is not to belittle the wonderful shrimp and perfectly cooked scallops, or the pasta with pesto... More

As full blown trip advisor junkies we read many reviews prior to our trip. We knew the restaurant was small, and to make reservations for certain. That being said we arrived the night of the fireworks a few minutes early. The owner/hostess sat us promptly with no qualms. We had a choice of the porch or the inside. We chose... More

What a great find-my wife and I went here to celebrate our wedding anniversary last week. I had read many of the past reviews for this charming restaurant, and found the place to be as described. Very homey, friendly wait staff and excellent food. As other reviewers noted, there is no menu because all ingredients are purchased fresh daily. We... More

This place may not be for everyone but we loved it. It's quirky, in need of new paint, a new floor etc. but it's like being in your favorite uncle's house. There is no menu. You're told what they have which is pasta or pasta with different toppings. And they're really good. It's BYOB. It's very small and hidden off... More

WOW! Went to Italian Cucina for dinner last night before a show at Bucks Co. Playhouse. This is not the normal dining situation you encounter in New Hope. In a city known for some good restaurants, it can quite often become about turning tables quickly. We in fact felt the need to inform them that we had theatre tickets as... More
