From the time my boyfriend and I walked in the door we felt like we had been transported from the madness that infiltrates Commercial Street during the summer into a haven of tranquility. Our experience at Dalla Cucina was outstanding - from the greeting at the door through six courses of expertly served food. Since it was a rare date night, we asked to space the courses out a bit and were happily accommodated. We each tried different dishes for each course so we could share and in effect created an amazing tasting menu. To name and comment on each of the dishes would be too time-consuming so suffice it to say that each dish in each course was outstanding and unique. Flavors such as basil, Sambuca, and citrus were introduced in very novel ways and made each dish special.
The service was also outstanding. In addition to Chuck our excellent server, both co-owner Tom and Chef Shelly stopped my our table to make sure that everything was to our liking. Shelly even took the time to explain some of the presentations and preparation techniques.
We never felt rushed - the food seemed to come out exactly when we were ready for the next course.
The decor at Dalla Cucina is lovely as usual. I've always loved this space from the time years ago when it was Chester.
Thank you again Dalla Cuchina staff for such a memorable evening!
