Very small verbal menu with nightly specials, but unbelievably delicious food! BYOB. Family style dishes. Best to make reservations on the weekend.

Wonderful food, very cozy. It is small and window unit air conditioner which you don't want to sit near. The owner and chef very nice and cordial! One suggestion: work on cleanliness and decor of the dining room. People don't seem to mind because hard to get table!

Basically a one-man operation working in a tiny space. But cooking is authentic and superb. Absolutely worth a visit if you're in New Hope. Warning: BYOB if you want wine with dinner.

Good flavor, authentic Italian. Nice sized portions. Very good flavor in all dishes. It's a tiny place, not fancy at all. Kind of like going over to a really good Italian friends house for dinner. Outdoor seating is a something I would like to try along with some of the other dishes.

Once again, Joe out did himself. From the salad to the shrimp & scallop appetizers to the main course, every dish was out of this world. We love how the menu changes nightly with whatever he buys fresh everyday.The thick pork chop and the salmon were the best we ever tasted. If you are ever in the New Hope area,... More

Pasta dishes at $24 - pricey but very good. I asked for an appetizer and it was converted to a main course size and price. The salad for two was very good but also $18. Inside seating is very tight but pleasant. We sat on the porch - also very tight but we were the only ones there. The porch... More

My Colombian family and I wanted to do something different from the traditional touristic attraction from the New York area, so we decided to drive to New Hope. Italian Cucina was more than everything we wanted. The food was just amazing! I love that they offered a set menu( Family style) And they offered the opportunity to try different plates... More

We have eaten in a number of restaurants in New Hope over the years. Italian Cucina is by far the best. I love to eat and take my food seriously, and this is some of the best Italian food that I have ever had. The restaurant is very small and unassuming, and reservations are a must. The menu changes every... More

We had reservations here and were so glad we did. Restaurant is very small but the food was fabulous! The owners worked preparing the meals and they came out to make sure everything was to your liking. Our salad and appetizers were served family style. We had shrimp and scallops and both were amazing. Loved our dinners also. Would definitely... More
