Delicious mussels.

Nice break for a meal after a craft fair. I had the mussel.s which were delicous. Ordered the cheeseboard to go with. Nice meal.

For the life of me I don't know why this restaurant is so consistently careless about the details that makeup a fine dining experience. We met some out-of-town friends for dinner last night at Cucina 24 and ended up having the oh-so-typical C24 experience. A gruff "do you have a reservation?" at the entrance to the almost empty restaurant was... More

After spending time last summer with relatives in Tuscany, i have new standards for Italian food in America. This was absolutely incredible. My waiter Rich was very helpful in guiding me through the menu. I had the burrata as an appetizer (hard to find in any NC restaurants and theirs is made in house. The moved on to the campanelle...

The menu has so many interesting options, it's hard to choose just a few plates. The pizza is a must with its thin crust and interesting toppings (rabbit sausage is out of this world). The wine list is varied and the service is superb. And then there are the complimentary breadsticks like no other . . . wow. Cucina 24... More

I visited Cucina 24 with my mom and uncle. My mom is a picky eater, and she didn't really feel comfortable with the variety Cucina had to offer but enjoyed the bolognese pasta. My uncle and I, who are more adventurous, particularly enjoyed the food. I had the snapper, which was to die for, and the appetizers were also delicious.... More

I hosted a business party of 16 for dinner. The overall experience was very good. The service however was a bit slow. The food was very good, but short of excellent. Some of the pasta dishes seemed to try too hard to be different. Sometimes staying to the tried and true pays off better. The wine list was a disappointment... More

Their steak is awesome, also they host it with deep, fruity red wines. Watch your glass, they fill it up real quick.. one moment looking to the other way and your glass is full again. We had a great time at Cucina24. Thanks!

Quaint little restaurant with excellent food. Nice atmosphere. Always crowded so be prepared for a bit of a wait.

Food was tasty, especially foccocia bread and my husband's bass meal. My daughters and I had the gnocchi, it was good, but not wow. We also ordered the cheese platter... It was interesting, but what else do you expect? But man, that bread!!!!!!! To die for.....

I took my girlfriend here for Valentine's Day after we had spent the day visiting Asheville. She ordered the lobster ravioli and I had a steak. It is an upscale restaurant, so don't expect large portions. Despite that, our food was excellent and we had a lovely evening. The prices are fairly steep, but it was a nice place to... More
