    What a wonderful meal. The seafood was outstanding. The favours interesting, but nit overwhelming. If you like wild game meats, the specials would appeal to you. Our server Kim was friendly, helpful and treated us very well. We will be back.

    We went on a tuesday night and It was unexpectedly crowded. Our main waiter was very polite and curteous, the ancillary waiter who brought the food to the table was expressionless and put the plates on the table and walked away. The bread was hard and flavourless. The appetizers we ordered were mushroom toast and a caprisi salad which was average at best. I had the lobster pasta (Th he dish lacked salt and the lobster was overcooked chewy (that was the better of the two). The salted caramel gelatto was great. The chocolate "mouse" dessert looked like a 3 year old's composition... broken chocolate piled on top of nutella and cream with a smear of "jelly". I would not go back and was surprised as to how well the restaurant is being reviewed.

    We took my mom to Cucci for her 92nd birthday. The food was excellent, per usual. The staff were attentive, courteous and pleasant. There was live piano music that night and the pianist played a varied selection of music and sang occasionally. We weren't expecting this entertainment and it was the finishing touch to a very special evening for my mom.

    Dined on 8/17/2014
    Found the staff very responsive and appropriate, service excellent and food very good. However, the piano player, as capable as he seemed to be, was far too loud for the size of the place. His renderings of familiar music should have been more "background" in style, as it was difficult to carry on a proper conversation. He should also have taken more breaks, to allow for some "quiet". I can understand it if he was playing for folks at the bar later in the evening, but not at 6-7 p.m. when there are family groups there, as well as couples trying to have a quiet meal. With this exception, it was a good experience and I would return.

    My fiancee and I went to Cucci to celebrate our engagement -- aside from the delicious meal (a caprese salad and salmon with mustard, chard, and lentils), they treated us to a couple drinks and paid for our desert, 'death by chocolate' with a sparkler. The live music (pianist), Paul, was talented and friendly, and happy to take requests, and the staff, including Romano, were very friendly and attentive. Thank you!

    I had never met you, Cucci, before Wednesday evening. So much lost time! This is love. Demure in your spot on Jones Street in Bronte you have been hiding from me. Your unassuming exterior might fool some but I knew you for what you were. Inside, smart, tasteful decor, Perfectly trained staff. Not that you were not flirtacious: mineral water still of effervescent, no extra charge. She and I shared an appetizer (divided beautifully in the kitchen without out asking) of perfect seared calamari on mixed greens. A bottle of white from one of our favourite Niagara vinyards accompanied her gnocchi (kitchen made, not the punched-out bullets so often found.) and my shrimp and scallop fettuccini. An evening to remember. You have stolen my heart.

It took about an hour for our food to get to us and in the end a bill that was over $100.00 for 3 meals 2 salads a coffee and pop. Portion sizes were what was expected and was good once we got to finally eat. I won't go back

    Had a great evening at Cucci. Twelve boaters with different likes and dislikes. Service was fabulous and the food was also really good. We were not rushed at all , even though we took up the entire centre part of the restaurant. The manager was very accommodating when we needed to get 12 people together.

    We have been dining at Cucci since it's opening, and have never been disappointed. The service, quality, and surroundings, are hard to beat. I have dined at many upscale restaurants throughout NA, and Cucci would easily be in the top 20%. The staff are friendly and competent, and the food is always delicious. I like the fact that the menu changes periodically, and the wine list always offers several options, to please any, and all tastes. Aside from all the above reasons, one of the best is the location? Mississauga and Oakville diners don't have to fight traffic and then pay ridiculous parking fees. It is very convenient.

    We had an amazing dinner on the patio, on a summer night. Food and service were great. The servings are bigger than what you would expect from a fancy Italian restaurant. There was a bonus unexpected live singer, who also played the piano. It was a Sat night, so I am not sure if that is to be expected on a weekday, but she was awesome.

    For a.m. business in Toronto and p.m. business in Hamilton, Cucci is well situated for lunch about half way in between. Both of us ordered the same dish, so I can't give too broad of a comment here, but suffice to say, the salad was outstanding (we split one between the two us) and the tagliatelle was fantastic. Did a tour of Italy recently and each day ordered the same thing for lunch, tagliatelle, in Venice (Murano), Bologna, Florence, Rome, Sorento, Positano and Naples (did the same thing with pizza) and I find the tagliatelle at Cucci is as good or better than any of the 7 times I tested it in Italy. Partner felt the same way. Ate half, brought the rest home to enjoy it again. Great service as well, we WILL be back.

    The beet millefeuille was very rich and hard to get through. I was expecting a puff pastry type dish, which would have helped cut the richness. I had ordered the Linguine Puttenesca with tuna tartare for my entree. The tuna as cut in really thick slices and layered on top of the linguine. It wasn't a tartare. It looked like there was no effort made at all. The linguine and sauce were good however the anchovies had so many bones to them that I had to chew it extremely well or I would have had bones stuck in my throat. They actually hurt when chewing. The bones were too fine and many to pick out. You couldn't avoid them, as they were hidden in the linguine. You got mouthful even when you thought you had picked them out.

    We come every few months for date night - it never disappoints. Food, service and ambience are amazing. Oh yes - as are the cocktail and wine menu also! Comparable to a high end Toronto restaurant. Save the drive and the parking cost and go to Cucci instead. Lovely to walk down to Bronte Harbour after as well. We will be back!
