Overall, very good. We liked some of the dishes but others were just okay. Long wait, nice service but server seemed overworked and harried. Not as good as our first experience, but we will go back another time.
We loved this restaurant, everything was fantastic. We will be back soon.
Waiter was inattentive, forgot our order of Brussels sprouts then delivered undercooked sprouts to pair with my daughter’s undercooked pasta. Not worth the price
This is my favorite restaurant in all the world, including Europe. Brian allowed us to have fish for lunch, which I wanted for my birthday.
Wonderful dinner. Even better than a few years ago. Would highly recommend.
The service and atmosphere were excellent. My wife and I tried the one fee option and were served a lot of dishes we would not have ordered on our own. The food was great and I would recommend this establishment to anyone.
We had the tasting menu... super delicious, unique and great value! Atmosphere, server attitude, and service was extraordinary. Awesome experience where everyone is enjoying the food and it was the evening after Valentines... It's at the top of my AVL foodie list.
So Valentines is always difficult to plan. Cucina 24 is one of my favorites, but this meal was special. Their “family meal” was tapas on steroids. It just kept coming, and coming. Each dish a little more special, and the staff was great at explaining what it was and how it was prepared. It’s always great when you feel everyone is part of the experience.
Amazing food. We are still talking about it.
My absolute favorite restaurant in town for a celebration meal. Every bite is always perfection!
What a wonderful experience. Finding great Italian food in Asheville isn't easy and Cucina24 exceeded all expectations. We shared the family style meal and were delighted with every unique, delicious and healthy offering. Certainly not your typical Italian dishes but we left totally satisfied and anxious to return. Grazie, Paisano!
Excellent service and food!! Stop here every time on our way to Hilton Head.
Lovely meal with flavorful dishes. Very slow service but a nice waitperson. We'll go back.
We always enjoy Cucina 24, they have a great wine list, local Italian with a menu always changing to help keep everyone interested. The price fix menu gives you a taste of things you may never order but you will enjoy once you try them.
I love Cucina 24. The food is beyond expectation. It has been our go to special occasion place for years. This last visit was a bit disappointing however, as there were very expensive wine bottles. We used to be able to get a $24 bottle of wine there...😞
Cucina 24 was the absolute perfect place to celebrate my 40th birthday. We chose to order the family style tasting menu which was fabulous and a fun way to spend a special evening. Each dish was wonderful and perfect, showcasing not only the talents of chef Brian Canipelli and his crew, but also the quality of local ingredients. We loved the cocktails and old world-focused wine list. Our server, Malcom, was exceptional as well-- his professionalism, knowledge, and personality made the night even more memorable. My family traveled from far and wide to be with me in Asheville for the occasion-- I am so happy with our experience and would recommend it to anyone.
Cucina 24 continues to be one of my favorite restaurants in Asheville. Creative cooking, bright flavors and attentive staff, it a wonderful experience.
We had an amazing dinner - tried the tasting menu. Wonderful service, too. We will be back!
Fantastic food and service! A great find in Asheville.
Had the lamb shank. Excellently prepared. Service was amazing.
Food was ok but presentation has declined .Really small entree portions 2”x3” piece of fish not really satisfying. Asked if it was special occasion (a birthday) but don’t know why, no acknowledgement. And service was really really terrible. This used to be a favorite but I believe they are getting complacent.
A wonderful restaurant with great service and tasty food. Handy to everything downtown, nice atmosphere and fair prices. Our meal of two antipasto's, the fried artichokes were excellent, the PEI Mussels were good, but a couple were a day or two older. thea lamb sausage pasta was just right and rigatoni al’ amatriciana was excellent.
Our waiter Anthony was attentive, but not intrusive and never let our wine glasses empty.
We have heard good things about this place and decided to give it a try before attending a concert nearby. The menu was a little difficult to understand for our first time, (tasting menu, portions of tasting menu, regular menu, wine listed in two locations, etc.) and our server was nearly zero help with it. When we asked questions, instead of a good explanation, we were given one or two word answers. The food was good, and I think our experience would have been better with a different server. There were two male servers nearby, who seemed much more helpful with their diners, which is how we gleaned most of our information, just too late to apply to our own ordering experience. We'll try it again in the future and hope for a different server., or maybe just eat at the bar.
Excellent food, excellent drink and wine list. Had an office dinner here and was very happy with our experience. While the tasting menu looked spectacular, people opted for the a la carte menu, which also had excellent choices. While the main courses were very good (branzino, hanger steaks, and porchetta were selected at the table), I personally thought the pasta dishes were the highlight. Handmade pasta and some incredible sauces... I had the oxtail sugo and it might be one of the best pasta dishes I have had outside of Italy. The chef / owner has major talent. While we brought our own wine (with a very reasonable $15 corkage fee per bottle), the wine selection I saw on the menu was impressive.
Service was acceptable, but a little slow. Honestly, we were so busy talking it wasn't a big deal to us.
Definitely worth the visit and highly recommend this restaurant!
Made my boyfriends birthday experience absolutely amazing!
Superb food and atmosphere in downtown Asheville! Interesting menu with a balance of „regular“ items and „what we‘re cooking“ items which change weekly. The whole Bronzino was incredible. Celebrated my moms birthday there and they were very accommodating for special requests across 3 generations. Food came very slowly, but was fine for a celebration dinner out. Just don’t be in a hurry! Everything made individually to order.
My wife and I had the tasting menu that is per person price where the whole table shares each dish except a main course chosen by each person. It was fantastic with about 8 courses. All were distinctly tasty and fresh and perfectly prepared. East Fork (local) stoneware plating is a nice touch and rustic feel. Nice wine list by the glass. I will be going back. Good service by staff, with knowledge of the menu and wine list.
It was a week night and weekends may be much louder than our very nice noise level.
Focacia was excellent. Should have stuck with pizza because crust also looked amazing. Pastas were good, but over salted.
Really enjoyed our dinner! Staff was so great - waiter helpful with wine selection - entrees delicious. Just right! Recommended. Very cozy, too!
