“Nice place to enjoy a nice meal.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

Nice atmosphere but can get noisy. Nice menu selection and not to pricey. Get there early as it gets crowded fast. We had to eat at the bar or would of been a long wait. Did not really like eating at the bar, would of much rather eaten at a table as it was too hectic.

“Prices weren't bad”

The prices were fairly decent and the servings were a good size. The food was very good and the restaurant is very attractive...we had a great time there with some locals.

“Decent Italian fare.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2012

We've been here several times. The service is good, the atmosphere is nice but the food is inconsistent. The food was great our first visit, lacking in flavor and only warm our second and back to very good this last visit. I believe they are under new management now as the new manager stopped by our table to check on our meal and service. We will give them another try in the future. The prices are reasonable and their specials are good. We also like the convenience of Aliante station for dinner and a movie midweek.

“Great way to try wine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2012

I ate at Pasta Cucina on a "senior wednesday", where if you're over 50 and have the points on your club card you get to eat half priced before 6pm - a great deal.

The food was good, but was especially interesting was the wines by the oz - you can try a couple dozen wines in 1 oz, 3 oz or full glass portions. Typically I have a glass of wine with dinner. I tried a couple smaller portions with my salad and entree. Good way to sample different wines - and best of all at half cost.

“good food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2012

Great service and fantastic wood fired pizza! I liked the option to get small -2 or 3 ounces- servings of different wine. The regular Italian pastas were good and the breadsticks were amazing.
