A word from Cucina Dell' Arte
We have been cooking, loving, dancing and celebrating life in Palm Beach Since 2004. This restaurant is a labor of love and collaboration of the Coniglio, Ritman and Thurston Families. We have travelled Italy, The Mediterranean and stateside to learn our craft and share with you what we know about eating, drinking and having a good time. We strive to serve you lovingly prepared Mediterranean-influenced food from only the best local ingredients, and to immerse you in cheerful elegance.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Had client for lunch and I loved my chicken special. My client returned his lunch, and then his expresso.The service was very good,a nd they reacted very well to his issues. I will be back, but probably not with this client."

  • "We ate there on a rent Friday night. While the food was generally very good, and service more than competent, the high cost are not commensurate with the prices charged. And nowhere is this more true than for the wine list. Prices for very moderate wines are in execs of 400%. should one wish to bring one's own wine, not an ordinary bottle but one rarely found on a wine list, the corkage fee of $35.00 far exceeds that for restaurants in a much higher category (when considering quality of food atmosphere, and elegance). Might return for lunch, but doubtful for dinner."

  • "This is a place that offers a wide selection of great Italian food...freshly cooked ...homemade ...where the ingredients are NOT from a "package" as most "chain" restaurants around the area use as their ingredients ...try it"

  • "It's not easy to find gluten free pizza, let alone gluten free pizza that's good. Loved my dinner. I had creme brulee for dessert. The consistence was great, but it had a lemony flavor to it. I love lemons, but not as part of my creme brulee."

  • "We went to celebrate a birthday and the staff had a lovely birthday sign posted with festive balloons on the one of the table's chairs. These special touches were festive and appreciated. The special complimentary dessert that accompanied our meal was attractive an perfect for sharing. This restaurant has a large variety of salads some named signature salads that are quite original and truly delicious. Even the salad dressings are a bit unique and extremely flavorful. It's a location that I will soon return to and is always a delight."
    Dined on 3/20/2014
  • "We have gone to this restaurant quite a few times, but this time the food preparation was really not done well. And it was fairly simple food - pizza and Caesar salad. The pizza was under-cooked and the salad had no flavor. Guess we will wait until they are less crowded again and see if that makes a difference."
    Dined on 3/19/2014
  • "Everything was mediocre. The salad was small and beets tasted like canned. The pizza dough was tasteless. Perhaps other dishes are better but we were in for a light snack and would not return."
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "Service good, food good, but too noisy to be able to talk at all. But it was the late night crowd, and the vibes were good. Had dinner there two night later. Was earlier and quiet, and food and service were outstanding."

    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "We have dined at this restaurant before and have had favorable experiences. Unfortunately, this time the service was fair at best and the food very disappointing. My salmon was over cooked ; one salmon was returned because it was not prepared as requested and the chicken scallopini was fried and not prepared in classic tradition."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "My wife and her friend arrived 10 minutes late by which time their table had been given tomsomeone else. They were then offered a place at the bar wherebthey had lousy food and bad service. We have been to thisnrestaurants many times but will not be returning let alone recommending it to anyone! Very sisappointing performance on all fronts!"

  • "Reservation for 7:00, seated at 7:45. Food didn't even seem to be Italian. Fat too loud and far too much cleavage"
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "We have eaten here many times before and have always enjoyed it. On this recent evening during Presidents' weekend, the restaurant was overwhelmed in every way. The food came out after a long wait--the pizza was overcooked (nearly burnt on top) and the two fish dishes came out cold. It was a huge disappointment."

  • "This is our favorite restaurant in Palm Beach. Always a great experience."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We come every year when we visit West Palm for a meeting and always have a pleasant dining experience. We look forward to the caprese salad, which this year was not quite up to par. Fresh fish, nice pasta dishes, good cocktails. Great energy."

  • "Been here many times and the food was excellent as always. I had the sausage and broccoli rabe which was excellent. The bread pudding is the best I have every had and well worth the calories!"
    Dined on 2/9/2014
  • "Have eaten here many times previously. Brought friends expecting good food and ambiance but was sorely disappointed. Even linguini Bolognese was like glue. Everything tasted as if prepared yesterday. I had seen on line just before entering that the management had changed. If so it really was for the worse. I would not recommend it again"

  • "Been to Cucina many times. One of our favorite restaurants in the Palm Beach area. Great food, great service, great atmosphere. Lively and relaxed unlike many other restaurants on the Island. Price point lower, too. Great for a date, family or a place to take visitors."

  • "Poor table, almost in the kitchen. Noise level made conversation impossible. Food acceptable,but picey for what it was. Better with parties of four to six. More enjoyable out of season."

  • "Everything was extremely overpriced. A simple appetizer costs nearly $ 20. The server was not helpful in describing each dish. At one point, she went MIA for a while, even though she was not that busy. I will not recommend this restaurant to anyone."
    Dined on 12/24/2013
  • "We dined outside on a beautiful evening, so I rated noise level moderate but honestly we didn't go inside."
    Dined on 7/7/2013
  • "My memory of Cucina was drool-inducing.This time I didn't feel that, mainly because the fish was dry.But presentation, flavor, etc was all good,as were my appetizer and salad and dessert. I'm going to call it a fluke."
    Dined on 12/25/2013
  • "My husband and I love this restaurant. After a leisurely bike ride we stop here for a casual lunch. The food is very good and the ambience is lovely (like a little café in Italy)."
    Dined on 12/25/2013
  • "Cucina is one of our favorite restaurants in Palm but this time the server was a huge disappointment. Chris took forever to bring our drinks, slow to take our drink orders, did not understand the difference between a twist and a wedge of lemon, forgot to bring wine that was ordered, brought the wrong appetizer for one of us and was generally confused all night. The food was good as always and the atmosphere high energy which we like. Chris needs training or a new career. We still love the restaurant and will return. My guess is Chris will be gone."
    Dined on 12/23/2013
  • "The spaghetti and meatballs was great as was a simply grilled fish served over greens with avocado. The menu was quite varied and even offered pizza. Drinks are on the expensive side-- with way too much ice and hardly any drink."

  • "Great food and friendly atmosphere! Will go again!!!"

  • "This was my first experience at this popular Palm Beach eating spot and I fail to see why it is so popular.It is a very noisy restaurant with absolutely no ambience.The food was above average with decent portions but the service was poor.Our party of four sat for over 20 minutes just waiting for someone to take our orders.Considering how many excellent Italian restaurants there are in Palm Beach,we will take our business elsewhere in the future."
    Dined on 11/15/2013
  • "Food was delicious, large portions and large menu choices. A little pricey, but worth it."
    Dined on 11/6/2013
  • "Delicious food, great service but not overly solicitous, this gem becomes a late night hot spot after 10 pm, so you can eat well and then dance it off:) BUT- if you don't like the noise, just go at 6-7 pm and enjoy the excellent offerings. It is also a good "people watching" scene and that part, a feast for the eyes, is complimentary."

  • "Must be getting old hearing this, but best place in Palm Beach for lunch. When the weather breaks it will be great indoors and out."
