We've enjoyed lunch at Cucina twice in as many weeks since their reopening of lunch hours service. The revitalized interior design is handsome, carefully selected grays, blacks and whites with natural wood and metal accents, one of the best in the north bay. The lunch menu includes salad, pasta, and pizza selections, all nicely prepared. The wine list includes Italian... More

We have eaten here with guests and as a couple multiple times, and it is currently our favorite place to dine in San Anselmo. The menu is straight forward middle to northern Italian with a California influence. The wine list is good but not enormous. It is very popular with the locals and always packed. The tables are close together... More

Given the high prices, and crowded tables and high noise level, I'm surprised this restaurant is as popular as it seems to be. I selected the chicken breast with lemon and caper sauce, thinking I would get a decent portion. It turned out to be three thin slices. Since I didn't order a side of "smashed" potato (cost extra), I... More

With a recent remodel, the food has been improved as well. Very tasty, good service, not too noisy and lovely atmosphere.

Cucina S.A. has reopened with a bang. Great food at great prices. Service was outstanding and the atmosphere is very comfortable. Glad to have such a quality restaurant in sleepy Marin!

We were staying in San Anselmo and were walking the town looking for a restaurant within walking distance of our hotel. We found this restaurant forgetting it was valentines day we were asked if we had a reservation. The hostess said she could seat us if we could eat in an hour and a half. No problem.

This restaurant only opened a few weeks ago, and it is still a little rough around the edges. My entree (baked tortellini) was a little crusty, the zabaglione dessert came in a mound on a plate instead of in glasses, but overall the food was quite good and it was a pleasant dining experience. I love the ambience at this... More

The restaurant might have changed ownership since the previous visit of about a year or more ago. The service was slow, the waitstaff was not particularly knowledgeable about various types of wines (I am in the wine business but don't know all of the wineries) and there seemed to be more of an emphasis on pizzas rather than fine Italian...

We have been going to Cucina for 20 years thru various ownerships and chefs - always been satisified with the food. The new management is abrasive, confrontational and obnoxious - my wife asked for a glass of Ice for her soft drink, the manager went into a rant about why its too expensive to make ice with the new county...
