Went for a friend's 40th anniversary dinner. There were approximately 40 guests at this function. We were all in one dining room which was fine. The décor was nice. The food was buffet style The appetizers were very good.. The main course at the buffet was just ordinary! My issue was with the service. Seemed to be a bit rushed... More

We went to Cugino's for a family gathering in May and could not have been happier with our choice of venue. The food was exceptional, the services was wonderful and they took care of all of our needs. We have two young adults in wheelchairs and they accommodated our family perfectly. From my first call to set the reservation; all... More

My wife and I were in Farmington for a family wedding, and had the chance to slip away to Cuguno's for a Saturday lunch. We are glad we did! The ambiance is very nice, and the salads we had for lunch were absolutely a cut above what one normally would expect. I had a lovely spinach salad with poached pears,... More

Garlic bread is amazing. Wine list is pretty extensive on the bottle-side. The glass selection is medium-to-small though. You can't go wrong with the food selection!

We have visited Cugino's several times a year for the past few years. It has always been a nice experience. We made a Saturday night reservation and were immediately seated at a very nice able by the window by the hostess, Cathy. We started with a bottle of mid-range champagne. We asked the waiter if Mario the owner/chef could cook... More

We ordered our food for take out and the restaurant was fantastic with creating a dish to avoid all of my food allergies. We ordered the Rigatoni Bolognese for 2 and the Chicken Piccata for 2. They then created a dish for me which was fantastic. All the food came with a large salad. I definitely will be ordering food... More

If you're stuck in suburbia with a hankering for a good meal, check this place out. We were personally served by the manager and the chef who are brothers. Everything was absolutely delicious, lobster bisque, beet salad, very original roast salmon, more traditional veal Marsala. Very pleasing and comfortable decor. As good as NYC restaurants!

Thank MajorNYC

C ugino's of Farmington is the perfect place for a business lunch or for meeting friends after work for happy hour or dinner. While we continue to offer many acclaimed favorites, the seasonality of produce along with the influences from the Mediterranean and Adriatic coasts inspire every dish. The menu features many popular selections, seasonal dishes and daily specials. Northern Italian Cuisine ~ Upscale Casual Ambiance ~ Great Food ~ Excellent Service
