A word from Cucina Neighborhood Italian
Cucina Neighborhood Italian serves as a meeting point, where friends and families gather to relax and indulge their love of food with a superior bite to eat while enjoying a casual atmosphere with attentive and professional service.

The decor is modeled after the more simple, yet sophisticated, cafes of Northern Italy. Warm reds and soft, clean whites provide the perfect backdrop for a relaxing meal with family or friends. The menu at Cucina is simple, rustic Italian. Our philosophy is to provide great tasting food with the fewest ingredients possible. Creating dishes that are simple, natural, and barely manipulated. The wine list is a small but precise selection of Italian and Northern Californian wines hand-picked to complement our menu.

    Service was great, wine was good. The atmosphere is terrific, loved the linguini sticks. The food was marginal and could be easily remedied. Neither of the pasta dishes at our table had enough sauce, the pasta was dry. The flavor was fine. The pizza was also dry and not enough veggies/meat, just a lot of bare crust. We really like the restaurant if the food is taken up a notch or two.

    This place had been two disastrous restaurants before this incarnation, so I thought the space was doomed. After reading a good review, however, I decided to give it a try with my family. We had a great meal and very attentive service. Tip - To avoid having to valet, access the garage near Jersey Mike's and park on the second floor. There is a back door right into the restaurant.

    We have been here a few times and this time, it wasn't so good. The service was good and we love sitting upstairs outside. The food, however, this time was terrible. We were 6 people and were so excited to bring two other couples, but it was disappointing. Not sure we will be back.

    We had a fabulous time in the private dining room celebrating a close girl friend's 50th Birthday. Cooking with Chef Kool Breeze, Jeff's wine pairings and Jose's coordination of the event made the occasion very special. The food selections and wine pairings were out of this world!!!

    I've been to Cucina 3 times in the past month or so and every time I can't wait to get back! It's great for getting a quick lunch and getting back to the office. It seems like every time I go, they have some kind of great promotion going on. Tuesday's get a free dessert with 2 entrees, Wednesday $1 champagne for ladies and I recently got an email about all their menu pastas being $10! Amazing! Thursday, 1/2 price apps! I can't wait to get over there for Happy Hour! Their flyer says $2 Bellini's and draft beer, $2.50 bottle beer domestics, $4 wines and 1/2 priced appetizers and bottles of wine under $50! Wow! Every time I have dined at Cucina everything is outstanding! Great food, service, drinks, specials... The list goes on and on!

    Our reservation was confirmed through Open Table, but when we arrived the restaurant door was locked and the place was dark. We tried calling the number listed on their web-site and was told it had been disconnected. Strange..... It's a relatively new place. If they are already out of business you'd think they'd disconnect the reservation system.

    We enjoyed our dinner at Cucina Neighborhood Italian. We love good Italian food and we were not disappointed! Both our entree's were excellent, as was the wine suggested by our waiter, Bobbie. We will be back!

    Could not rave over the food. Being there for an hour and a half, only two other couples came in. This restaurant is not going to make it. Food is just bland. So missing that true Italian flare. Service was so-so. We had to flag down our waiter to order a glass of wine and then again later for our dinner and they were NOT busy. Am classifying this as "not be back."
