Owner Joe makes the rounds!

Very small (reservations area a must!), no printed menu,...huge portions. Tight quarters (maybe 25 seats?) so be sure you want to know your table neighbors! Food is like grandma's kitchen...if you are Italian. Don't miss the appetizer that is sausage, cheese & rabe...if Joe offers it that night... read more

I found this restaurant on trip advisor 3 years ago and decided to go for my birthday. My husband and I loved it. Since then we have been back many times. Went this March for my birthday again. Unfortunately the verbal menu had not changed much at all. The menu never really changes much. Salads and apps are very limited.... More

A very unique dining experience. Italian Cucina is a cozy little cottage on Main St. in beautiful New Hope. You feel like you are in your Italian Grandmother's kitchen, but the chef/owner is the warm and friendly Joe who makes you feel like you're his visiting cousins. The food is simply the best Italian food I have ever had! Fresh... More

Located just off Main Street (Rt 32 aka River Road) up a short pedestrian lane, Italian Cochina is set inside a small wooden cottage. it has a big reputation for outstanding Italian cuisine, that changes daily, at the wim of the Chef Joe. Special orders do not upset him either! BYO.

My mouth is still watering from the delicious ravioli dinner I had last night. This place is small and you need reservations in the heart of New Hope. Good friends who are regulars took us here and we became hooked. The place is a BYOB and we ordered salads which were unique. We were with a group of vegetarians and... More

Cozy little place with outstanding, authentic Italian food. Try the fresh burrata and pasta "sacks"! Joe is a wonderful host as well. Bring your favorite wine and enjoy a wonderful dining experience!

We spent the day exploring Lambertville and New Hope, and saw the show, Plaid Tidings at the Bucks County Playhouse and then had dinner at the Italian Cucina. What a nice day! The highlight, though was dinner. The place is tiny and the tables are very close together. We were seated in the enclosed front porch which held only three... More

If you've managed to wander here without a reservation and get a table, consider yourself very lucky indeed. Instead, do yourself a favor and make a reservation, you'll be glad you did. The chef/owner's concerns appeared to be good food made of fresh ingredients, and he gets an 'A' in my book. 4 of us were out for dinner, and... More

very small but incredibly warm and engaging dining experience in this old fashioned red table cloth italian charmer; great food and service overseen by the owner, a delight in his own right, highly recommended, straightforward italian fare not to be missed

Italian Cucina exceeded our expectations. It is a small, cozy place so be sure to make reservations (and bring wine)! They have a verbal menu that changes because everything is made fresh each day. We started with a family style salad and shrimp as an appetizer. The chef greeted us upon entering and checked in on us a few times... More
