We came by here for lunch, and received complimentary bread with wonderful balsamic and garlic dipping sauce. Our food was so delicious and service was fast. The chef/owner (I presume) is well trained, and very friendly. Authentic Italian food! Not badly priced either but definitely worth it!

Absolutely devine. The place looks and feels fabulous. The food is outstanding. I had the vegetarian pasta, mmmm delicious and light. My better half had the chicken Alfredo Fettuccine, there was nothing left on his plate. And the plates were good sized. Plenty of food, great music, great price! We will definitely be back The owner "cook" was a delight.... More

Great meal here at this little treasure tucked away on Lake Berryessa and so worth the time! So glad we were able to make this trip! Be sure to have the tiramisu- pictured is the bruschetta.

Took my mother for a Sunday drive through Napa and to have Dinner. She has been to Italy several times. She and I both agree, Cucina Italiana has the best Italian food we have ever eaten. Somehow Stefano is able to take simple ingredients and pull flavors from them that i have never known. 5 stars all the way.

My wife and I for Valentine's Day ate at Cucina Italiana. What a wonderful surprise to have gourmet Italian food out in a country location. Very friendly people served us. Chef keeps a spectacularly clean kitchen. The was served immediately once chef placed the food on the counter, and the food was quite hot with steam coming off. The price... More

My family and I are new to the area. We decided to go on a scenic drive today- Black Friday. I found this restaurant. At the time it was not busy so I was greeted by, whom I think to be, Chef Stefano. I read no review of this place, but I had this gut feeling to check this place... More

After riding throughout the Napa Valley and Lake Berryessa our group rode into the parking lot of Cucina Italiana. We saw the sign out front about the free appetizer for motorcycle riders, so we stopped in. As we got off our bikes we had no idea they were closed. Out walked Stefano and invited us in and made us feel... More

Based on the reviews from Trip Advisor I called this restaurant to make a reservation. I was asked by the man with an accent, who we now believe was the chef, "where are you staying?" I replied that we were staying in down town Napa. "He said it would take 30 minutes" I said that was ok. Well it took... More

Immediate seating for a couple at 6:45 on Thursday. Attentive wait staff, also very knowledgeable on the menu. The soup & calamari were a great start. The recommended wine was spot on. Gnocchi was on the mark with grilled chicken. Would return as the pricing was reasonable for such quality. Thanks for a great evening.
