Great service, great menu, fabulous wine list. Make sure to ask the waiter if they have the Chilean Sea Bass on Red pepper puree- so good! The antipasto is amazing with the buratta cheese as well. My wife always orders the Lasagna and is never disappointed.

Cucina Alessa is a very nice Italian restaurant in Newport CA. The food is very good and the restaurant is small and romantic. The antipasto appetizer was delicious and the main course was also very good.

While you won't have an ocean view the upstairs dining area is the best. Good vibe and lighting and ambience is great. My favorite dish is the Alessa special. Ask for Josh to be your waiter.

I really enjoyed the food and service here at Cucina Alessa. The food was good! I would definitely go again! They even made the drinks I wanted. It also happened to be perfect weather where we sat outside on the patio which made it even more special.

We came twice. The first time the restaurant messed up a reservaction for eleven but reacted immediately and within two minutes had us situated in literally a private area. And the service kept coming. Excellent bar and wine list. A varied menu with delights around the table. We returned with guests a week later and received the same exemplary service... More

An excellent Italian restaurant run by Itallians who know their craft. The food is wonderful, the service is exemplary. Don't miss out on a great experience.
