“Fantastic for romantic dinner”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

My wife and I spent three days in the Graeagle area as a quick romantic get-away. At the end of our first day we ate at Cuccia's for dinner. We loved it. We ordered everything that was on the "specials board," including Salmon Picatta. We loved everything.

First, the food. Everything was fresh and delicious. The bread came hot. We loved our entire meal.

Next, the service. The owner seated us and our waitress was super attentive. The service could not have been better

The ambiance. We loved it for a romantic get-away. We sat on the outdoor deck and found the atmosphere to be just perfect.

On our second evening of our trip we tried out Longboard's, which is just up the road. We found it to be "competent." The food was fine, but nothing about our experience was special. Our bill at Longboard's was significantly more than our dinner bill at Cuccia's. So, on our third night, we returned to Cuccia's. The owner and our waitress remembered us from two nights earlier. That is a good sign of great service!

When we return to the area we will dine at Cuccia's!

“Yummy Italian”
Reviewed July 24, 2012

The food was delicious, and carefully prepared. Friendly staff. This is carefully prepared Italian food - so you won't get a light meal, but it is more than the standard fare. I'd come back.

“a gem in the forest”
Reviewed July 14, 2012

this is definitely a resataurant to go out of one's way for.....we have dined there 2x and both times have come away with a very satisfying experience....the place doesn't look like much from the outside but the interior is nicely appointed...the hostess is the owner and her 24 yr. old daughter is the head chef.....our grown son was with us and i told him to go back into the kitchen and propose......most of the recipes are based on the family's grandmother from Sicily....the sauces are a perfect blend of spices and the presentations were very appealing to the eye.......for being in a resort area, the prices were very reasonable.....the wine list was not overly long but favored Calif. wines......i highly recommend a vist to Cuccias....you will go back...
