“Better than Pizza Hut at least”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013

Came through this town for a friend's funeral. Covington is a small town ~5000, and everyone pretty much knew each other. When we talked about places to eat with the locals they recommended Cucci's as the "best in town."

We arrived at 11PM on a Saturday afternoon and it was fairly crowded. It's a seat yourself establishment. We ordered a build-your-own combination LG pizza that consisted of onions, sausage, various peppers, and anchovies. anchovies were SALTY. Other than that, the pizza wasn't exactly the best I had - the dough was spongy, pizza was extremely greasy and service was ok. The waitress definitely came back one too many times to "check our water levels."

If I had any other alternative if probably find another place to eat.

“Disappointed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2013

I had heard really good things about this place. We went there as a family to eat. My husband got a turnover and said it was "good". Kids got a pizza and said it was "good". I ordered the cheese ravioli and it was very blah. It was served lukewarm and very bland. The ravioli was frozen and warmed over, covered in tomato sauce that had no Italian seasoning at all. I refused to eat any more. When I told the waitress that I was not happy with food I was met with we make our own sauce. I told her that it had no Italian flavor and she said its a very bland dish. I didn't want bland I wanted Italian that's why I was there. I was offered another dish at full price and refused. I was also charged full price for a dish that I was unhappy with and didn't eat.

The service was great -- our waitress was very friendly and accommodating. Nice atmosphere. This place has been around for a long time and has always had the best pizza in the land!

“Hometown Favorite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

Even growing up in the area, Cucci's has always been a special treat. Over the years I have been there many times and have never received a bad meal nor bad service. Even the salad bar stays fresh! It is certainly a repeat favorite of mine, and when I travel to friends I purchase the homemade sauce and bread as a gift.
