Excellent in every aspect.
Excellent in every aspect. The pizza's rival Mozza and the cheese selection is second to none. A truly memorable evening.

Cube Cafe is a small, neighborhood
Cube Cafe is a small, neighborhood restaurant with surprisingly good food. They have an amazing cheese list, an extensive Italian wine selection, and excellent housemade pastas. Not for a fancy night out, but perfect for casual occasion with creative cuisine.

Two Words: Cheese Bar
if you're only a two-top, sit at the bar--it's fun and you're right next to all those cheeses! Also, the pastas here are phenomenal!

The food is always superb
The food is always superb and the Sommelier/Manager, David, is incredibly knowledgeable about Italian wine and never fails to delight with his choices for pairings.

Cube never disappoints. The
Cube never disappoints. The food is always soooo delicious and the service is lovely. It can get a little loud in the evening, but largely that's because everyone is exclaiming over the yumminess. Simple menu where everything is super fresh and perfectly prepared. Watch out for the enormous fried chicken portion.

Great service, great food, A+
Service was top notch! Very helpful with menu items and suggestions. I know a place has fresh produce when they serve a salad with fresh peas. It is so cool inside, the decor, the lighting. It had been a while since I'd been there and I think they renovated the inside. It's so put together and the lighting creates a wonderful mood. I loved it so much that I if I ever need a place for a private event, I would look into renting it out. (Max capacity 78 ppl)

Warm + Delicious
The staff at Cube is always helpful in choosing wine and cheeses, so nice and friendly. They make us feel welcome like a home a way from home. Tried the Fresh Tagliatelle, very very good. Also, just had returned from a trip to Lake Como, Italy in which I felt Cube gave me a comparable tast of Italy!

I quite liked the decor -- clean, fresh, crisp but still warm and vibrant. Servers were very personable and efficient. We really enjoyed our dishes (Black Truffle and Egg Pizza; Tagliatelli Bolognese). Nice discovery.

Always a great choice!
Would I recommend Cube? Yes I have and nobody has been disappointed. Their Cheesemongers choice flight is consistently delicious with lovely presentation. The seasonal dishes are terrific and the very reasonable corkage allows you to bring your own bottle.

I'll always love Cube.......BUT....
As always the food was memorable.... However Cubes new "back room"
Is just as memorable but not in a good way.
Space is limited here and a packed back room doesn't help matters .
Call early for reservations or expect to be cramped and cozy with those you may not wish to be.

Great Dining Experience
Fantastic wine, unique and delicious menu. Loved the cheese board and the braised baby octopus. Scallops were seared perfectly. The staff was amazing and attentive and I can't wait to go back.

Great menu, so many things we wanted to order!! Reasonably priced wine list. Best fried chicken around! Great service.
6/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
I've been to Cube 6 times now and I like it better each time. Food is fantastic and Alejandro is the master at the charcuterie and cheese plates. I had a Morciaia from Umbria that I loved. Staff is outstanding. Homemade pasta. can't wait to go back and I've dined all over Italy. Great place here in LA.
6/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
We are always happy when we leave Cube. Every dinning experience, food-wise, is unique since the menu changes weekly. And the service/environment is consistently top notch! Put this on your regular places to go!

I've got to get out more
If this restaurant is an indication of what I am missing not getting to LA more often. The food was soo good especially the seasonal offerings. If you like cheeses donot miss the burrata and the pizza was really nice, loved the crust. We tried the peach and heirloom salad, OMG those peaches, and the crunchy summer salad with the hazelnut dressing was really good; the corn filled pasta really nice and the sparerib raviolini was very tastey. I would get that again but I might want a red sauce with it. The veal was good but not too special. Can't wait to get back.
7/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
I loved this restaurant. The cheese selection was great and the staff was very knowledgeable. I went for lunch but I would love to go back for dinner and wine with friends.
7/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Cube is great
The outer restaurant was very loud, but we got seated in a wine room where the noise level was much better. Food was excellent, so was service. We'll be back.
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Lives up to reviews.
The meal was delicious and lived up to the reviews. Friend chicken, their signature dish (funny for an Italian restaurant) was great. Short rib ravioli with orange/brown butter sauce was good. Octopus appetizer was tender and the truffle pizza was great. Didn't try dessert, but the overall effect of the restaurant was delightful.
7/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
I actually was brought here by a friend for a girls night . I liked it so much that I invited a few of my girlfriends and they loved it too!
The service is great. Our waitress was very attentive and kind. Thanks Ashley! And the food is amazing. So do think about going just go!

A great secret
Odd named restaurant that doesnt gve you any indication of what it is. The food is fantastic - innovative, fresh and perfectly cooked. The heirloom tomato & peach salad is a stand out! Truffle pizza is wonderful as is the bacon & polenta. I enjoyed the branzini with risotto which was perfect. My husband had the scallops and evn though he only got 2 1/2 scallops he said it was delicious. Service was excellent - our waitress was very knowledgable & attentive. All around fabulous dinner.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always love the food at Cube, and always go there with clients. They are always impressed. Their seasonal-summer menu is awesome! The soups, sides and appetizers are probably my favorite.....
8/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Why did I wait so long?
This was a wonderful experience. I dined here with out of town colleagues, and it was everything I had hoped for and more. The food was wonderful. We went with a few of the waiter's recommendations, such as the heirloom tomato salad and an order of the fried chicken for the table. It was sublime! Great time, and I'll definitely be back!
8/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Cube has an amazing cheese selection, great menu/we had the Burrata & the figs(divine), fried chicken is great as is the Branzino.
It is a small & charming restaurant w/fab lite fixtures and a delightful staff.
9/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food here is always fresh and delish! Must trys are a cheese plate, the chef's selection never fails, and the fried chicken. When in season the mozzarella and peach caprese is perfection!
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
The soups - chilled beet, tomato basil - we really memorable and flavorful! Didn't do a full meal this time, but will be back.

Service and food
First the food always seems to impress me and my guests.
Service, I have yet to find better in the city!
Cube begs to become your "CHEERS" as the staff are not just attentive
But increasingly concerned and friendly with each visit.
It's a nice find in a city where you may at times feel a bit forgotten.
9/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Cube is always a treat
My husband and I have been to Cube several times now and it never disappoints. The peach-tomato Caprese salad they previously had on the menu is one of our favorites to mimic at home. During our most recent visit, we had a delicious cheese plate (a must if you're eating there), braised bacon and cippolini onion with creamy polenta, a kale salad, and one of the most delicious pork tenderloins I've ever eaten. If you want an innovative menu with delicious food, give Cube a try!

Nice Vibe, Good Food
The concept and the food work well. Scallops were ok; gnocchi was good; chicken was good; black truffle pizza was great. Service was very attentive, but not overbearing. We were traveling through LA county and were looking for something different and this fit the bill.
10/3/2013 5:00:00 PM
The service staff were appropriatel
The service staff were appropriately attentive. The house pastas were delicious. We started with the house sampler cheese and salumi plate...great variety of cheeses and meats. The fried chicken was terrific. There's quite a lively bar scene as well. We'll definitely go back.

Happy to have discovered this neighborhood gem in the middle of La Brea's current chaos. Put a pin in my search for great fried chicken. Good food all around; friendly, helpful service, caring staff.

we always have a nice night here, romance is in the air!!

It's my fifth time going there,
It's my fifth time going there, I never touch fried chicken in my life .
At Cube the fried chicken is delicious !
Every time I go there the keep the same level of good food

Fantastic for Cheese Enthusiasts!
My husband, mother-in-law and I stopped in for a quick dinner before seeing the Lion King in LA this week. The service was exceptional, with our sever building a custom cheese plate based on our tastes and preferences. We opted to order and share several antipasti dishes rather than stick to our own mains - also a fantastic choice. We brought our own bottle of wine and did have to pay the $15 corkage fee - the only downside in my opinion, but I understand why this is a service fee.
I also purchased three ounces of my favorite cheese from the night at market price to take home and enjoy later - convenient!
The combination of wine, bread, cheese, nuts, fruit, apps, and ambiance was award winning - we'll definitely be back soon!

YUM is the best word to describe it
Everything on the menu is divine. The burrata is insanely delicious. From the upside pear pie dessert to the braised beef raviolini and truffled mac & cheese, the menu is surprising with its unique take on modern Italian cuisine. The service, wine list, cheeses, and meats are all exceptional.
