“Two couples have a nice late dinner.”
Reviewed March 23, 2014

We had originally only intended to come to Cucina for a night cap, and I am glad we decided to have dinner instead. We started with carpaccio de carne and figs wrapped in prosciutto for our antipasta. The carpaccio was one of the best dishes I ate during our entire vacation, and it amazed and delighted one of my travel companions who had nearly refused to try it. The main entrees were good, but they were outshone by the first and third courses. One of my travel companions listed her mascarpone cheesecake as the highlight of the meal. My tiramisu was excellent, though not the best I have ever tasted. My only disappointment was in a "specialty cocktail" that I ordered. It was called an Italian sunset, and it tasted like nothing more than gently diluted grenadine. I nearly sent it back, but I felt responsible for making a bad selection. The service was excellent, and the complimentary bread service was delightful. The warm roasted garlic is soft, sweet, and simply scrumptious on the freshly baked bread, especially drizzled with olive oil and sprinkled with nutty parmesan cheese. Ultimately a good, albeit not amazing, experience.

“Great food, nice atmosphere for Birthday celebration”
Reviewed February 12, 2014

As part of a weekend getaway with my wife to Kohler, we scheduled dinner at Cucina Restaurant in the Kohler Village Shopping area. It was a rainy, cold January evening and the horse-drawn carriage ride looked a bit miserable, so we took the free shuttle from the American Club over to the restaurant. We arrived just a few minutes early, but the hostess seemed a bit disoriented with what we had arranged, i.e. birthday celebration, please seat us by the windows looking out over the (frozen) lake. She tried to seat us at a nice table in the center of the romantically lit dining room, but was quick to put us at a window-side table when we requested it. We realized later the table they probably had reserved for us, with a better window-front view, was still seated and a couple just finishing up.
We enjoyed the table we got, and the arrangement of the room gave us plenty of space and not too close to other tables and conversations. The lighting was romantic and the table beautiful. The server was pleasant, but somewhat unfamiliar with the specials and the wine choices.
I was very excited to find the New Glarus Spotted Cow Beer on draft!
We ordered a prosciutto wrapped date with goat cheese and balsamic reduction appetizer, and it was amazing- explosive flavor and generous portions! The Capellini with Chicken and pesto sauce was delicious, and my wife enjoyed the shrimp and mussels pasta special.
The restaurant brought out a complementary dessert for my wife's birthday, and we had a wonderful time.

“Beautiful decor and well above average dining”
Reviewed January 21, 2014

Located in an upscale shopping center, with a view of a small lake (outside dining in season), Cucina offers excellent dining and a very special ambiance. They are currently offering a multi-course lunch special for just $15. An excellent value. Great for business entertaining/meeting as well as intimate lunch/dinner for two.
