Small, Chef-Owned BYO

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

Ate here for first time with group of friends and thoroughly enjoyed everything we ate. It was a family style and tons of great food, most the chef recommended. The bill was very inexpensive and the food fantastic. Also love the fact that its a BYOB!

The Italian Cucina is a diamond in the rough. The food is exceptional! Just went there for dinner last night for the sixth time and it just keeps getting better. Appetizers were scallops perfectly prepared, fire shrimp in a delicious sauce and little neck clams in a very flavorful pancetta broth. Main course very light pasta purses filled with five... More

Want to go home for dinner? We make this place a stop whenever we visit Bucks. The food is high quality, as you would expect from a place in the center of New Hope, however its atmosphere and just pure coziness are singlular in the region.
