We visited with the family for a special authentic Italian dinner. Overall the dinner was good - but based on the overall ratings we expected awesome. I hope it was just that the meals weren't aligned with our tastes. I could tell by the careful attention to all the customers that the owner, who takes time to stop and say... More

I love this place. The food is excellent and freshly prepared. The owner, Joe, is such a wonderful person. He takes time to greet everyone! I just wish I had more time to enjoy this intimate place. Hope to be back soon. This place is NEVER disappointing.

SInce we live in New Hope, we decided to stop in during the week without a reservation to see if we could get a table for two. We did, and had a nice meal. Very, very, very close quarters. Not my favorite feeling since I am a little claustrophobic. I was happy to get some fresh air after dinner.

I don't understand the high rating, maybe it's the lack of good Italian restaurants in New Hope. The service was friendly but the food was just fair. The appetizers were good but boring. The pasta dishes were average and the sauses lacked flavor. We sat on the porch under a meldowed air condidioner, the main small dining room was better... More

We had the most perfect date night! We got to Italian Cucina and after entering this small house like restaurant, a girl named Ann... More

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
