Small and charming restaurant with a welcoming staff and amazing cuisine. Our server suggested an appetizer of homemade sausage and broccoli rob, served in a large pasta bowl with fresh bread - pure heaven. For entries, the shrimp scampi and a homemade pasta called saccotini was to die for. Joe, the owner and host, puts his heart and sole in... More

I was with 7 women to celebrate a very special birthday for one member of our party. The restaurant is set back from the main street and one should have their eyes open to find the entrance. The owner does place a small sandwich board near the street (but not visible by a car) to mark that you are here.... More

Stooped by the Italian Cucina as we were strolling through town. Met Joe the owner and ;earned that he was from a town near our home. We made reservations and returned for dinner on the patio that evening. The food was fantastic, no menu, new items prepared daily. We shared the special salad which was very generously proportioned. We ate... More

The experience is like no other. You feel like you are in a friends kitchen. Joe will greet you at the door and welcome you into his Italian Kitchen. He is also the chef. The food is delicious. The crab salad and grilled scallops are the BEST I have ever tasted. Everything is so good from salad to dessert. Joe... More

As Italians we are so critical of Italian eateries because we always compare it to our grandma's cooking. However our very first visit to THE Italian Cucina in New Hope, PA was as if Nanna was in the kitchen preparing all the meals. Very intimate setting, the owner greets every customer with a passionate feeling. The food is the best... More

First time here. Another birthday treat from my daughter and her husband. Slow relaxed pace in a tiny but homey environment... Felt like your in the home of that Italian neighbor down the the street. Joe the owner/ chef floated to every table numerous times during the evening. He made you feel like you've known him all your life... Bread... More

My husband and I dined at the Italian Cucina for the first time and really enjoyed the experience. The restaurant is very small, and you immediately feel as if you're eating at your parents' house. The smell of aged cheese and prosciutto tickles the senses upon entering. After being seated, the owner and chef, Joe, immediately came to our table... More

We were referred by a neighboring restaurant after we told them we were looking for Italian food. By some miracle, a table was open (make reservations). Joe, the owner, was gracious from the start. The ambiance was seconded only by the incredible meal. We shared a cranberry/cheese/greens salad which was wonderful. The Sacatini was as smooth as velvet and the... More
