We visited Cucina during a recent trip to Chicago, after walking through the Illumination: Tree Lights at Morton Arboretum, which was also fantastic! Our server was very attentive and efficient.

We have been to Cucina a few times and the food has always been good. Delicious home made Italian dishes with a full gluten free menu. Both options are delicious and the staff has been great. Take out or eat in, both options are sure to delight.

Reasonably priced and one of the best Italian Restaurants in the area. Outside dinner during the summer. Street parking usually available but they also generally have a car hop.

We enjoy this restaurant very much.. The atmosphere is romantic and the food preparation is quite pleasant. The last time we were there,we found out that they change their selections on a weekly basis. Not sure if that is still true as it has been awhile since we have been there. The cuisine is Italian and one of our favorite... More
