3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We had reservations at 9 PM and when we arrived our table wasn't ready. Once we were seated service was horrible. I understand they were probably ready to pack up but we were not the last patron to come in or leave. The food was decent but nothing exceptional. The restaurant is very loud. Chances are not good that we... More

We had a dinner here based on the reviews in TA and were not disappointed. The menu is quite creative in the entrees offered. The food was delicious and the service was excellent.

We arrived for an 8:15 reservation and were seated in a darker room. It was loud but wasn't offensive. Our waiter took our order but seemed to be in a huge rush to get on to the next table. We ordered and watched as three other tables in the room were served before us even though we ordered first. The... More

We had a celebration dinner here. The food and drinks were outstanding, with very fresh ingredients and even a bit out of the ordinary. They have a wide range of dinners, from pizzas to fancy plates, and they seem to have seasonal specials frequently. My dinner had an onion soubise sauce that was so good, I asked for directions on...

Staff could not be friendlier; service excellent. Kitchen is small, so expect to sit back and enjoy the great wine selection. Cheese plate was very good. Tagliatelle bolognese was excellent. Gnocchi with egg plant was more of a orecchiette (and too-al dentefor me), but otherwise enjoyable. Unfortunately you must order bread (and it's delicious) separately. This restaurant was a little...

We have eaten here at least a half-dozen times. Only once were we disappointed. And only once was it spectacular. What it is is reliably very good, and tonight was no exception. We had country pate for a starter. The plate at first seemed busy with various pickled veggies (okra, butternut squash, pepper rings, sauerkraut) and grainy mustard, but actually,... More

Cucina24 is Italian on steroids - my wife and I were delighted with the imagination of the menu, the presentation and the excellent service. The dishes we had were wonderful and are definitely going back to try some of the more exotic items.....this isn't Italian Italian, it's Mediterranean through the eyes of a gourmet chef. Not cheap, but worth every... More

My boyfriend and I visited on a Sunday afternoon. There was no wait. We loved the atmosphere. We sat in a corner booth with lounge pillows. After we ate, we contemplated a nap! It was that comfortable! I had the rigatoni and he had the orecchiette. Both were ok. I honestly don't feel it was good enough for the price.... More

My wife and I were looking for a dinner restaurant in Asheville. We felt like Italian food, but my wife is following a gluten-free diet. Trip Advisor listed Cucina 24 as serving "gluten-free" food and off we went, imagining we could the things Italian restaurants usually serve--pasta or pizza--in a gluten-free version. Not true: no G-F options in pasta or... More

Chef & owner Brian Canipelli opened Cucina 24 in 2008 on Wall Street in the center of downtown Asheville, NC. Our kitchen is focused on melding the traditions and philosophies of Italian cookery with ingredients found in the mountains of the American South. We work closely with a number of area farms and our menus reflect produce that they bring to us.
