Got there early and the service was wonderful. The Atmosphere was great, but the tables were a little close together and that's only because it's a downtown restaurant with limited space. The cocktails and wine were outstanding. The food was good, a little on the high price side, but it is a downtown restaurant after all. Our waiter was very... More

We both had the tasting menu and they brought us 8 courses each. Most were small but we begin to pace ourselves after 3. Everything we would eat again. We paired the food and they kept our pours just right.

I was visiting Asheville and a friend recommended this restaurant. We made reservations for Saturday evening and were promptly seated. This place is very unassuming and you never imagine it is so nice on the inside. The atmosphere is warm and inviting, but a bit loud. We started with a glass of Pinot Noir and the cheese plate, which were... More

Cucina 24 used to be one of Asheville's finest dining spots; great ambiance, location, and a wonderful Italian menu but they fell victim to the "let's experiment with exotic ingredients" virus that seems to be afflicting local chefs. I mean really, do we need skate or sweetbreads on the menu without balancing it with something recognizable, that is tried and... More

Very pleasing to the eyes, very comfortable atmosphere. The food was delicious....after the staff decoded the menu. A personal preference is not having to decipher a menu and be able to have a handle on it before the waiter comes back to answer 15 questions; but maybe that's just me. The food was nicely portioned and very good. I understand... More

Everything we had at Cucina was delicious! We started with the charcuterie board; shared the arugula salad with pickled grapes; then had the NY strip and its was amazing...also had a pizza and the ended with dessert. Everything was amazing. First we had been at Cucina 24 and will definitely be back!

We have not been back to Cucina 24 the past 2 years. We will not return after today. With all the great restaurants in Asheville this was just very medicore and on the high cost side. Cocktails were small and high priced for this area. Had the scallops. Very bland and nothing special at all. I have a sense this... More

We visited this place on an Asheville Food Tour named "Eating Asheville" and it was so delicious, we had to return for dinner. We sat at the bar and did the chef's tasting menu. We recommend sitting at the bar b/c you can watch all of the preparations. This is a dining experience you don't want to miss. Every course... More
