What a great resturant! Food was great, atmosphere was outstanding, and our server Kori was the best ever!!! I would highly recommend! The outside seating is the best if you can get it.

The restaurant is in the heart of the downtown area and it has really good Italian food. The portions are huge and the prices are standard. If you want a good meal for not a lot of money this is the place. It is, however, very crowded and very noisy. The tables are close together so intimate conversations are not going to happen. We had a great time and found it to be the best food for the money of all the places we ate on a recent trip to Laguna Beach.

Great hip happening atmosphere. Great food. Four adults All thought their dinners were great. I had a lamb pappardelle dinner and have never had lamb that tender and tasty! Scraped the plate. Vegetarian pasta was excellent, bone in veal and pollo marsalle were winners also. Their bread with oil and pesto had us asking for more. Bruschetta was great. Wine was excellent, about$45 for Chiante Classico. I think Tizziano from Tuscany was the name. Also I should mention great service. Be sure to get a reservation and plan on spending a little extra time for parking because your in downtown Laguana. Neat shopping and a nice bakery nearby as well. Yes we will go back again before we leave!

Had a Saturday dinner here with family of four (two young kids). There was a 25 minute wait but we expected that after reading prior reviews. I was concerned the adult crowd and party atmosphere would not work well with kids or that the wait staff would not do a good job tending to us and the kids; wrong! They hostess (dark brunette) was so pleasant and very much in her element and the our waitress was very patient and addressed our kids by their names throughout dinner. The food was absolutely delicious and made more so by the buzzing, noisy, busy restaurant atmosphere and you got the sense that everyone was having fun. A very pleasant dinner even though ours was quick because of the kids but made more comfortable and memorable by the great staff!

Cucina Alessa was a lovely Italian restaurant in the middle of "downtown" Laguna Beach. Great location (especially for window shopping before or after dinner), pretty reasonably priced for California, and very good food. Service was also quite good.
