I was shocked to see those poor reviews. Then I also realized that they were emphasizing the service, which is an easy fix. However, I am often at both locations and have never seen any poor behavior from the wait staff or management. Having lived...in Palm Beach, West Palm, and Heritage Farms, I've been lucky with my selection of restaurants. Out East, I frequent three excellent Italian restaurants, and I am fortunate to have Cucina Moderna, both North and South, out here as excellent choices. The indoor-outdoor bar is a great added touch at the Boynton and Lyons Rd location too. The food is always spot on, and they are happy to work with special requests. I personally love Chicken Francaise, and they do a fine job with it here. I highly recommend both locations and especially like the outdoor bar at the Boynton Beach location. Both are fantastic.More

Very unhappy with Cucina Moderna last night. We get food from there at least twice a month and we used to go in person at least twice a month. Phone was out so I ordered online. t took my order and said pickup was at...6:24. When my husband got there the girl behind the counter said it would be a few minutes. At 7:10 we finally got our order, minus the delicious bread usually included. The "manager" did nothing to take the sting out of this extremely long wait. If they had said it would have taken 40 minutes more, we would have had a chance to cancel our order or at least wait outside. The manager was very unapologetic. It was not Ignatio who we always see there. CM: Watch how you treat your long term customers. There are always lots of new restaurants around that would love our business!More

We were a party of 4 and after waiting 15 minutes a waiter finally came over but without even bringing us water. Water finally arrived 10 minutes later and we gave him our order. Another 15 minutes and our apps came but was bland and...flavorless, needed at least salt and pepper which of course was not on the table. I went up to the hostess and let her know we either needed another waiter or better service. Went back to my table and then the fireworks. The manager came over and was rude as can be and told us if we didn't like the service he will cancel the order. When we told him we just wanted better service he exploded with anger and told us to F..U ourselves! That was the manager. After looking at other reviews later we found this not to be the first time this crazy person got angry and cursed at customers. STAY AWAY FROM THIS PLACEMore

Our favorite pizza from their wood fired oven. Thin crust with just the right amount of cheese and flavorful tomato sauce.

We have eaten at the Lake worth location a few times and also ordered carry out during the pandemic. The service is impeccable and the food is excellent. Well prepared and generous portions. We like the sunset specials. If you are seated before 6 PM...you get a salad, soft drink and a scoop of gelato with your meal. This is the real deal. You feel like you’re in Little Italy. The only negative I can offer is that the other day I called to make a reservation, and the man who answered the phone said we don’t take reservations and slammed down the phone. I don’t know what that was all about because I have made reservations before. After that I called the Boynton location and was able to get a reservation and we went there instead. This is a very small restaurant. It fills up fast. The new location in Boynton Beach is much bigger and they do take reservations.More

Had the Fettucini Bolognese-D. Nothing great about it. Sauce was strange tasting but still edible...Our waitress, Jordyn B, was excellent. Professional and friendly

Eight diners, seven rated good to excellent. We had several different dishes and all were above average to excellent, except plain broiled chicken. Many of us asked for vegetable sides in place of pasta, and they wer accommodating, and the veggies were NOT overcooked. Good...for them. Extensive menu, and almost all dishes were as good as hoped for.More

Top notch waiter service. Food choices were very much enjoyed by all. It’s a (repeat) keeper! Looking forward to the second location opening soon in Boynton ...

We were a party of 6 out for dinner to celebrate my birthday. We got a large table in the middle of the restaurant. Our waitress was friendly & did not rush us at all. The meals were delicious!!! Focaccia bread is amazing! Go hungry...because portions are large!! My mother had arranged for my ice cream birthday cake to be delivered to the restaurant. The manager assured her that the cake would be stored & served. The entire process went smoothly & all the waitstaff came to the table to sing Happy Birthday. It was a delightful evening! The manager stopped by our table several times to check to make sure we didn’t need anything. Highly recommend this restaurant!!! This was our 2nd visit(we are from Maryland). I know we’ll be back again!!More

On a recent visit to this neighborhood Italian restaurant with some friends I tried their veal francese which was a large portion of three medallions of veal with a side of pasta in meat sauce. It was better than I had anticipated and there was...plenty left over to comprise a second meal the next day. The waitstaff is quite competent.More
