Probably the best food I have had in Augusta, north Augusta had Divinos but Cucina is better in my opinion, the duck is good at both but presented better at Cucina the Food is full of flavor and you get quality especially for the price.

Service was wonderful! Waitress and bartender both very friendly! Food a bit salty, per 3 of us at table, portions were great! The salad was huge and delicious. Dessert, delicious!! The chocolate cake was so moist and delicious!

The ambience, was sadly lacking, the bar area too dark, felt more like a dingy bar, than an intimate setting. The dining area felt very bare, not what one would expect from a higher end restaurant. Tables were bare, no candles, no fresh greenery and butcher paper on table felt more like a chain restaurant. Tables and chair, it felt more like a deli setting. The areas to the kitchen had black curtains which oddly stopped above 3 feet above the floor.

Our first venture out to a restaurant at night in a year, so it was very special. The food was just as we remembered it and everyone was attentive. We enjoyed ourselves very much.

My friend was visiting from out of state and this is a place we visited before she moved away. We always enjoy the food and the service has always been top notch. Tonight my friend didn’t order her food the way she liked it and when it came out she decided to not eat it. The waitress immediately offered to have it remade for her, which we all agreed would make her happy about her meal. They went above and beyond to give her the meal and experience she had hoped for. We will definitely be back solely because of this kind of customer service. The food was amazing as always.

The food and service was very good. However tables placed very close together and very noisy. Not much ambience. One table had a child watching an iPad without headphones so made a noisy situation noisier. Better with a group than a date.

This restaurant is fantastic for what it is: a warm, lively neighborhood spot with a touch of class and outstanding food. After many meals here I’ve never been disappointed. If you’re looking for honest, tasty food with a good wine list and a relaxed ambience you can do no better. Please give this place a try.

Starting this stating that this was on Valentine’s (busy). It was pretty loud and the doors being opened and closed blew extremely cold air in on us while eating. The waiter we had deserves a raise. He was professional, quick, and efficient.

Very good Valentine's dinner, each had risotto, it was very well prepared. Only unhappy moment was sitting to close to another couple, we couldn't have a private moment. But it was Valentine's and lots of people, so there you go.

We lived in Southern Italy for 3 years, but traveled and enjoyed foods from all regions of the country.

Since returning from Italy in 2003, we have tried several times to find a restaurant serving AUTHENTIC Italian food, in an AUTHENTIC Italian atmosphere. We had not been successful in out attempts.

Until now.

Cucina 503 is the closest we have ever dined to the real deal, and we were blown away by the whole experience. We will return - repeatedly!

I loved the patio dining option with the patio lamps lit, that looked very relaxing/romantic. However since it was cold out we dined inside but got seated next to the door, so we still got a little cold, but no biggie. Best ribeye I've ever had and the sides were also fantastic. Normally the value never bothers me, but we did feel it was a little pricey. The prices didn't match with what was listed on OpenTable. I'm unsure if that was because we went on Sunday (On Valentines Day) when they're normally not open I believe? But overall great food and drinks were good.

We had a double date at Cucina. It was our first visit as well as our friends. The Hostess was very confused and couldn’t find my reservation but found us a table. Our food was absolutely amazing(some of the best food we’ve ever had in Augusta) and our Server was very knowledgeable and attentive.

Our only complaint was how close we were sitting to other people and the tiramisu portion was too small.
