Cucina Enoteca offers a nice change up to the usual suspects in the Irvine Spectrum. Located just across from the theaters, it's casual Italian with a few unique, fun dishes like the squash blossom appetizer with ricotta. They have a good selection of wines and the waiters are well versed. The menu has enough variety to appeal almost everyone, good pizza menu and dough was excellent (tasted home made). Ingredients were fresh and depending on budget or time, you can go high or low on this by ordering appetizers, salads and a more expensive bottle of wine, or for a quick pre-movie bite, a salad and pizza might be perfect. There's a retail wine shop inside so for $8 corkage fee, you can opt for that.
