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

We arrived early and without a reservation but were seated promptly. The service was attentive, pleasant and professional. The food was remarkable. While this was our first dining experience of the trip, it was by far the best.

When my girlfriends and I got to Asheville, we stopped at a local bar and asked where was the best place to eat dinner... we were told Cucina 24! As we wandered through the fun streets of Asheville, stopping random people to ask for directions to Cucina 24, every person we asked gave RAVE reviews. When we found it, customers... More

I wouldn't go back but it wasn't bad. The appetizers we had were good - olives and capicola plate. Pasta was subpar - I had the bucatini which at $17 proved to just be pasta with grilled tomatoes. BF had the rigatoni which was pretty chewy and a little off. The server was friendly and helpful. The atmosphere left something... More

Our first visit and we were very happy with the experience. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming and designed to control the noise level. The waitress was knowledgable about the menu and the ingredients in each dish. The wines by the glass were good value - not overpriced. The menu changes daily. We had several delicious dishes including the roasted... More

Let me say that I came into this restaurant with very high expectations. It was recommended by close friends and the concierge at our B&B here in Asheville. However, it did not live up to the hype. The ambiance is fantastic, as is the service. The prices are comparable to elsewhere in the city. My husband and I started with... More

Met family here for dinner. Was a little unsure because of pocket eaters. However, the food was exquisite. Very reasonable portions with bursting flavors. Located in downtown, if you like Italian food, don't miss this.

Whenever we go to Asheville we dine here. The food relies on what is local and fresh and it is prepared to perfection. The atmosphere is lively but not too noisy and the servers are the most personable in the city.

Brian's cuisine matches the standards we enjoyed in far pricier restaurants in Italy and France during the years we lived in Europe. The squash blossoms with locally foraged service berries was our favorite dish, but everything we ordered was creative, beautiful, and delicious. The Prosecco and the sparkling service completed the perfect dining experience.

Thank Donna R

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.
