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.
