We had superb service last Monday at Aselinamfrom our server Jasmine. She could not have been more knowledgeable about the food and attentive toour needs.
Food was excellent, my one very ,inor coplaint was that the portions are a bit on the small side.
Our friends wanted herbal teas and while Aselina did not have them on the menu STK did and she was able to get them from thenadjacent (shared?) kitchen.
A nice expeerince in a unique environment.

The 4 of us thoroughly enjoyed
The 4 of us thoroughly enjoyed our early evening dinner before a play at the Alliance (a super easy walk).Though the restaurant is small, it is very comfortable.It was not crowded when we arrived(probably because of the early hour and the Final 4 in town),but started to fill before we left. I can see how it could be a very hot spot.It has a beautiful bar as well as al fresco dining.We shared a crispy calamari & shrimp appetizer and a salmon appetizer that were both fabulous, followed by 4 different pasta dishes (all excellent but mine - the Pappardelle - was the best). The waiter made a great wine recommendation and clued us in on the generous portions so we didn't overorder. Prices are reasonable.We will definitely go back soon.

Great midtown spot
Food is excellent. Good wine list. Our server was very knowledgable and polite, but seemed to wander away without checking on us too often.

Their black truffle pizza is the best I have ever had! Server was very knowledgable about the wine pairing with our food. The person dining with me had the stuffed ravioli which was also quite good.

A bit of south beach in Atl
What a cool place to have in midtown! The aesthetic is contemporary but natural with warm wood walls, sky high ceilings and bar level chairs and tables so that every patron shares the bar vibe - and even inside, you can be part of the al fresco culture with this tall doors open to the patio. We did a tapas style meal with a bottle of red and even did the pear infused vodka drink as part of dessert. We left feeling like we'd celebrated great food and company in a cool, unique way!

Cucina Asellina never dissapoints. Thye have been consistent so far in the quality of the food and service. Our waiter Chris, was fantastic. He was attentive, had a great personality, and recommended dishes for each of us that satisfied our craving perfectly. Keep up the great work!!!

Size of the dish was different
Size of the dish was different from the lunch we had two weeks ago to the dinner we had this week. The dish was the same but less quantity. in any case, equally delicious.

Great Lunch Spot
Cucina Asellina is a great spot for lunch. Our lunch was beautifully presented and delicious. The service was less than attentive. We had to ask for refills on drinks. The server seemed more interested in eating his lunch at the bar and chatting with the kitchen staff than serving our party.

The food, service and ambience was all wonderful. The pasta is hand made fresh every day and is delicious!! The ambiance is rustic Italian with a city feel. It is a place I will return to in the near future.

Great Italian spot right in midtown
I had passed by the Lowe's hotel many times and not noticed Cucina. If you are in the area give it a try!

This place has a great atmosphere
This place has a great atmosphere with a big city feel. Definitely better for smaller groups or date nights. Food was nice- some interesting things on the menu. Valet parking. Also have a small area for outdoor seating.

Great fresh Italian
Great Italian food, freshly made and very good service. Only negative was the seating, basically the tables are all high top style and using bar stool type chairs so feet are dangling or tucked behind you, not very comfortable.
We had a pizza and the papperdale (spelling way off) and both were amazing.
Cool atmosphere only have it 4 stars there due to the seating mentioned above.

We ate here because of a travelzoo promotion/coupon and will definitely be back. Seated by the owner, he enthusiastically reviewed the appetizers with us and we were not disappointed. The beef ribs in a balsamic reduction were the best I've ever had! We also selected this place as it was 3/4 mile from the Fox Theatre where we had tickets that evening, so it was a brisk 12 minute walk to the theatre from there which I enjoyed after gorging on the fresh Italian bread, ribs and freshly made pizza.

Skip the pizza, go for app & entree
The baked eggplant and the veal meatballs are great.
Most pasta dishes are quite good too.
Love the Layer Cake Primitivo Red Wine as well.
