Description: We have been cooking, loving, dancing and celebrating life in Palm Beach Since 2004. This restaurant is a labor of love and collaboration of the Coniglio, Ritman and Thurston Families. We have travelled Italy, The Mediterranean and stateside to learn our craft and share with you what we know about eating, drinking and having a good time. We strive to serve you lovingly prepared Mediterranean-influenced food from only the best local ingredients, and to immerse you in cheerful elegance.

“First time but not the last”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

We made reservations which I did not know I was going to need on a Saturday night in May and Sunfest going on at the same time and I am glad I did, the place was packed, great energy and bustling at 8:30 p.m. We were seated immediately and ordered wine from the great wine list. We choose to have tapas dinner and choose three apps, all were so fresh and delicious. The waitress was great, not to intrusive, but attentive. A hot spot in Palm Beach. We will return.

“Hosted a Bachelorette @ Cucina - Amazing service, great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

A group of late 20s girls were in Palm Beach area for a bachelorette party and we went to Cucina aroudn 9:15, and it was already a fun & lively atmosphere, with lots of dancing and fun music. We had a table set up for us with family style service (the manager was awesome in working with me on the menu and getting it into our price range). The table was decorated with balloons and a sign for the bachelorette. The food was delish and we had more than enough.

We stayed there after dinner to dance - such a fun night and they accommodated all of our ridiculous requests! HIGHLY recommend. so much fun.

“Nice, little place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

Cucina, as it is known, is a great place for breakfast, brunch or lunch. Food is well prepared and tasty, friendly, well informed staff, nice atmosphere. Small, cute outdoors area on a busy street, but it's still fun. Frequented by locals, so you know it's good. Located on a nice block with interesting little stores. Apparently it becomes a dance club at night, however, my Studio 54 days are over! It's a real taste of Palm Beach.

“Cucina dell'Arte a great place to have lunch.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

Most diners, even cab drivers, refer to this busy Palm Beach Italian bistro simply as Cucina. Cucina is a small establishment with a few outdoor tables on a very busy Palm Beach street. Inside dining sports two small dining areas separated by a bar. Cucina is more of a bistro than an elegant restaurant. It has a young and attractive wait staff but a table may have more than one waiter which can be confusing. The dell'Arte part of Cucina's title is its secret. Wonderfully prepared appetizers and entrees await the diner. Drinks can be pricey. Spend as much or as little for lunch. No matter, the experience is top hat. One word of caution: always check your bill before paying. Mistakes can happen.

“Enjoyed Two meals here”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

Enjoyed our visit to the Palm Beach area. This was a fun casual restaurant and it was busy. The wait staff was very friendly. The food was well presented and cooked as we requested. Returned for a second meal later in the vacation. The facility becomes a disco late night... we aren't that young!
