My second time at Cucina 24, and I came back because of the tasting meal. Pared with wines, it was one of my favourite meals ever - the first time. Last night, the food was good, but the service was not. And there were less than a dozen other diners, so we should have had their attention.
Our "paired" wines did not arrive on time with the courses. And the dessert for two people had one plate with one small scoop of ice cream on it. I asked about that as I have never been asked to share a scoop of ice cream on a plate with a girlfriend. In a flippant way, our waiter said they had" proportioned the dessert for two."
The food was good, and some of the appetizers were excellent. However, with so many dining choices in Asheville, I won't be going back to Cucina 24 again.
Delightful hostess Sabrina saved us a special table and the tasting menu is amazing; it just takes a bit larger stomach if you are of an age. The only distraction was a hood-system slipping belt to be fixed soon. Couldn't have been better maybe even in Italy!
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.
