Different Dining Experience Than The Norm

I had dinner here twice already, and if I had it my way, I'd eat here on a weekly basis! First of all, be sure to make a reservation- the restaurant is very small, which is a large part of its charm...but that also means that it books up quickly.

Last night we went and had one of the greatest meals. We had the burrata salad which was soon good and shared ravioli after seeing how big the pasta dishes were. We can't wait to return again with another couple so we can try some more things. The prices were really reasonable to me. The owner was so sweet and... More

Hidden, hole-in-the wall place in New Hope near Havana. Great food and extra friendly and engaging chef/owner. Casual Italian and BYOB is a plus.

Went to the Italian Cucina for the first time. It is a very tiny place set back off the main road. It seats about 25 people total and reservations are a must. The food and service is outstanding. It is just like eating in a friends dining room. There is only a verbal menu and the owner Joe cooks each... More

We were here on a beautiful day in April. We called for reservations and they were booked. They asked if sitting outside would be ok. It was the perfect day for that! (It's a BYOB/BYOW) There were 4 of us in our party. The menu is delivered verbally. We ordered a mandarin salad for the table, meatballs and shrimp appetizers... More

We visited for the first time yesterday and found the experience exceptional. It's a small little place, kind of buried deep on Main Street. The place is very homey, the chef extremely personable, and the food was top notch! There was no menu, the waitress just told us about some specials. We had Burrata & spinach salad, scalps, and amazing... More

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. Salads are enough for four people...and bring your own wine. This place... 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.
