    This was the second time in 2 weeks eating at Cucina Dell' Arte. Both times were a 10/10. It just happened that I had the same waitress for both occasions,Catie. She was great: attentive, professional, thoughtful and perfect at understanding the needs of everyone. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for anyone. The appetizer special I had the first time, a home-made ravioli with fig sauce was so memorable and I hope that they think of having it on their permanent menu. The dinners for everyone were superb. The desserts were out of this world, especially the Tiramisu ( very light yet full of flavor ! The atmosphere is delightful, reminding me of a Trattoria in Tuscany. Great job, I will definitely be back.

    We picked a dog-friendly restaurant in Palm Beach to celebrate my sister's birthday. The restaurant was perfect in every way. The staff was very warm and friendly. The outside isn't large, but we had a good corner table for our party of 4 plus the dog. From the Bread Salad, pizza, 3 chicken dishes and the fish special - we all loved our dishes. They have a doggie menu, and our 12 pounder enjoyed grilled chicken and vegetables. The chocolate cake dessert was fabulous, as was the special attention they paid to my sister for her birthday. We will return.

  • more disco than restaurant
    OpenTable Diner Since 2006
    Dined on 7/11/2014
    Reservation was for a friday night. Pushed it back thirty minutes but nobody told us it turns into a disco (yes, there was a disco ball and loud music). Actually, music was from the 80's and not the 70's which helped a great deal. It's a great bar scene if that is what you want but they told us we had enogh time to eat before the conversion was to take place. Unfortunately, they started early. Volume went way up, disco ball came on which makes you feel like you are on a rocking ship and they started packing up wverything around us. We had to leave before our food came out but manager was very apologetic and professional about it. He packed our food to go and even picked up the tab. However, food was okay at best.

    The atmosphere at the restaurant by the staff was welcoming and inviting. The food we ordered was very good. The pasta was good just right and the dishes was fresh and well prepared. The only negative was the size of the tables for a group of four the tables were very tiny. This is a little gem I will always come to when I am in town.

    I really enjoyed dinner at Cucina. We ate early (6:30pm) so it was quiet but nice. The gnocci was the best I've ever had; nice pizza and flatbreads were delicious. I understand it's a late night scene with dancing. The music they played was great--a nice variety of blues and R&B.

    First, the food here is amazing. We ordered the crab tagliatelle, ravioli, chicken parm and short rib gnocchi and they were all delicious and very generous portions. All of the pasta we had was made from scratch and the ravioli were perfect. The meal started with roasted garlic and bread, which always puts us in a good mood. We will definitely be back to try the other offerings. It is also worth mentioning that the drink list is nice and has some great craft cocktails on it.

    Drove from Port St. Lucie to Palm Beach :about 50 mins to restaurant. I thought the place would have had more of a open air view. Outdoor tables limited. We were fortunate to sit between in and outside...best of both. The food was terrific. Priced the way a good restaurant would. I'm from NY. I would have liked to spend more time in the area. Definitely recommend this place, and it's opened from 7am-3am. Yep, you read that right. So head out. Treat yourself. Worth taking the drive.

    I can get impatient sometimes, and if I make a reservation for 8:30, I expect to be seated at 8:30, not 9:10. I was frustrated when other parties w/o reservations showed up and got seated because they knew the owner. The manager bought my wife and I a drink while we waited (after I complained).

    Dined on 4/11/2014
    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.

    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.

    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.

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.
