“Our Favorite Asheville Italian”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

Asheville has tons of great restaurants, including some wonderful Italian ones. I have to say that Cucina 24 is our favorite. Always a very interesting menu that changes frequently and the restaurant itself has a very cosmopolitan feel, It's also an excellent choice when we have out-of-town guests as while the menu is "foodie-oriented" there's still something for everyone. The pizzas are great, too!

“Taste sensation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

We went to several well-regarded restaurants in Asheville and like them all, but this was our favorite. Creative cuisine, beautifully presented, and incredibly tasty! Great service, too.

“This Is One Of The Great Ones In Asheville”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2013

Hands down one of the best meals that i have experienced in Asheville...My server Rori was not only an excellent source for selecting some of the menus tastiest dishes and choicest wines, he was also incredibly attentive and pleasant.....Although the chef owner Brian was not there the chef "in" was tremendous, and the line prep was so impressive, course after course i was even more impressed than the last.My dishes were selected by Rori, I'm so HAPPY to have trusted him, this guy really knows foooodddd...His wine and aperitif selections were equally as impressive..Service this good deserved even more of a tip than I was prepared to provide so i'll use that as an excuse to go back and reconcile.........THANK YOU Cucina for reminding me what a great dining experience is and should be.....Be back soon, bringing friends and sending many others....:)
