Do you want your meal, now?!! Then don't go to the Cucina. It is an experience. What you will get in return is an unbelievable meal you won't soon forget. I had the Pork shank and it was soo tender and well seasoned.! I'm dreaming about it. The scallops were the best I've had, period. BYOB, and while your at it bring enough to share as you probably will with the regulars who make this place a must, not only in New Hope, but anywhere. We had such a great time... Can't wait to get back...

The food was very well prepared and not over salted or greasy like so may other Italian restaurants. Don't be in a rush when you go there and if you ask for anything it's hit or miss whether you get it (i. e. Water). You will not be disappointed though if you want a great meal. Joe the owner is an added bonus!! Di

I'm a regular at this place and a resident of New Hope. The food and charm makes it feel like you're eating in your Uncles kitchen. Joe,Maria and the rest of the Cucina Crew always make it a memorable experience.All of the dishes are great but a few of my favorites are Shrimp on fire, Filet and Shrimp Scampi, Sausage stuffed portabella mushrooms.

This is my favorite way to enjoy Italian food. The dining room is warm and cozy. The place is set back off the street so you might walk right by if you weren't looking for it. They are a BYO so you can bring in a couple of your go-to bottles and not bother having to mull over a crappy wine list.

Nothing on the menu is generic. Everything you get is made to order and we ended up letting our waitress order for us "her favorite" dishes being offered that evening. The kitchen is open to the dining room so as each dish is prepared you get all the great smells filling the room.

The owner was a really nice guy and came over to introduce himself to us. Everyone else in the room he seemed to already know quite well making it a very welcoming atmosphere. It was obvious people were enjoying themselves and that creates the best atmosphere for a restaurant.

We live in the area and we love Italian Cucina. It's a BYOB and the menu varies beacuse "Joe" buys the best of what is available that day. Like I told a friend, the place has little ambiance but a great atmosphere , and, it's a circus for your tastebuds.

It's small, friendly, and lmore like going to a friend's house for dinner. It's very easy to start talking to people seated at the other tables. The owner is a pleasant fellow and he usually sits down with everyone for a few minutes. Bring your appetite, this food is sooo good, you'll be back again and again.
