Classy place without the prices...

We went here for pint night out in May just after moving here because they had a cocktail mixer event using New Belgium Brewery Ginger Pear Beer. The bar staff was top-notch and the tasting samplers of the appetizers were delicious. It's much larger than expected and offers a casual vibe but the... read more

We love Italian food, too bad this was not good. The place is nice and the staff was pretty good. We hope the chef was out on vacation and that this place is usually good. Otherwise we don't know what the other reviews were talking about. The pasta was possibly homemade but very over cooked. Something an experienced chef would... More

Cucina 24 was on our Food Tour! The food and the atmosphere is terrific! The Chef served a Rigatoni dish that my husband is still raving about and hoping we can get a recipe and recreate! It was by far his favorite and one of many I liked! the wine pairing was perfect and hopefully can find some locally!

Was referred to this Italian restaurant by our B&B owners. Food and atmosphere was excellent. Food had a different twist/ingredients to its menu items. I am a picky eater, so I was a little worried what to order. My pasta was wonderful, as was my moms salad, and my sisters pizza was very tasty. The bread with the lemon parsley... More

In Asheville for the weekend, we had dinner on a Friday evening downtown at Cucina 24. A popular Italian restaurant that rivals many large city ones, it serves unusual take-offs on Italian favorites. Cucina 24 is a member of ASAP (Appalachian Sustainable Agricultural Project), an organization that promotes fresh, local foods. Our family group of seven had a booth that... More

I tried for two months before our vacation to book a reservation for a party of 14 for a friend's 40th BDay. The "event coordinator" Zoe Dadian was extremely rude, unprofessional and totally unaccomodating. She was difficult to get a hold of via phone and email, she never answered my questions and overlooked my emails then blamed me for messing... More
