We go as often as we can. Food is outstanding and very very generous portions. Fresh and fabulous. Can't beat the waitstaff either.They get to know you and your preferences. We simply don't do chain restaurants anymore as local quality is abundant.

Curtis Cucina USA very authentic Italian restaurant. Many good choices on the menu, and all are delicious. Service is excellent, considering the fact that it is always busy. But you are not rushed. Best to make a reservation.

Love love love this restaurant. The owner Curt is a talented chef who will only use the finest ingredients, who takes the time and effort to make certain things homemade, like breadcrumbs to bread the eggplant parm, the arborio for his amazing calamari, the gnocchi. Most restaurants would just buy these product pre-made. His "gravy" aka pasta sauce is PERFECTION... More

2nd visit to Curt's, and it was even better than the 1st time. Best Italian restaurant in Pinehurst/Southern Pines area.Service is excellent, menu is diverse and pricing is reasonable, a great combination to go with great tasting food. It is a very busy place and would recommend making reservations. They serve only beer and wine and you can take your... More

This chef has won many local awards. The locals rave about his product. I don't get it....I tried a variety of dishes.....eh. I won't go back. It's unfortunate but I just didn't get "it"!

If you are looking for great Italian food then you have found the place. Curt is an amazing chef and always has super specials to go along with the traditional stand by on the menu. Portions are large and include salad and wonderful bread with tomato gravy. The appetizers are too good to miss so just plan on having a... More

We had been told of a high noise level in this establishment, but were unprepared for what we experienced. Had we not been guests of another couple (who had driven us) , we would have left upon realizing that conversation required raising our voices just to be heard across our table. On a positive note, the boule of Italian bread... More

Curt's Cucina was recommended by Heather at the Hair Loft on Linden in Pinehurst (the best hairdresser ever!). She also recommended we make reservations and it's a good thing too as they were extremely busy. My husband had pasta with clams in the white sauce and was impressed with the number of clams. I had one of the nightly specials... More
