    We went to celebrate my husband’s birthday. I had the bass and it was fabulous. My husband had the nokia and he loved it and my son had the duck confit and also loved his. The service was quite good. Love the wine. Highly recommend.

    Celebrated our New Years with a quiet family dinner at our fav Italian spot in Columbia County. We had a reservation so seated right away, had a wonderful Server(who also works at Local) and she remembered us! My husband ordered an Old Fashioned and was pleased with the smoky drink as well as the big ice! I got a cranberry martini and it was fresh and delicious! We all ordered Caesar salad and wow it was impressive. My husband got the pappa-pasta and it was very flavorful and good portion size. My son got his fav lasagna. I got the meatballs and they were just okay. Not a lot of flavor so I probably wouldn’t order those again. Fresh bread with real butter and homemade flavored butter were a nice touch. Also the flourless chocolate cake was impressive as well. Owner came by twice and checked on us and thanked us for our patronage…We always love to support Small Business!

    I had the braised lamb shank with a vegetable dish resembling a succotash with beans, orca and tomatoes. I was concerned the vegetables would be overcooked and mushy. Much to my delight they were cooked perfectly and complemented the lamb shank. I would absolutely have this dish again.

    Very excellent setting. The appetizers and the desserts were out of this world good 😊. Our food not so much. Not enough seasoning/spices. From the pasta to the risotto it just needed flavor. But we LOVED. The appetizers! And the desserts

    The mussels were so good! I mean the sauce is sooo good. Don't forget to soak your bread in the sauce. The eggplant parmesan was not on the menu, but the waitress let me know they keep it on hand for vegetarians. Huge portion! My husband got the carbonara that the waitress recommended. He loved every morsel! Since it's my birthday week we got the very creamy tiramisu. It was like adult pudding! I'll be back!

    Wr walked in to the restaurant and the tables were covered by brown paper. Where I come from (Baltimore), that means a crab picking place. The reviews we read beforehand suggested fine dining. This was a birthday celebration for my sister. The menu at the restaurant did not match menus we read on line. OK, we're flexible so we chose something else. My sister had the lasagna. There was SOooo much mozzarella and almost NO ricotta. It was a joke. I ordered the Carbonera but I could not eat it. It was that bad. I ordered it so I paid for it. The server seemed not to care she was taking back a full dish. No one came out to talk to us--not the manager and not the chef. My sister, who lives in Evans, GA, has already told some of her friends how bad this place was. We will not be going back.

    Spending a month in August as a burn patient and have been craving Italian. Found this TOTAL GEM! The homemade pasta is amazing! Portions were spot on! Special pork Bella appetizer was so delicious we should have ordered 2. The donuts dessert with caramel and strawberry dipping was fantastic. The only con I can think of was the atmosphere. Location is a little unique so when they open the curtain to let in more light. You are looking at cars parked very close to the restaurant. Later at night when they wouldn’t open the curtain you’d never notice this though. Service was outstanding as well! Also - great value! We couldn’t believe how inexpensive the bill was when it came. Recommend!

    The food at Cucina is excellent, And we love Briar who used to be a server there who was bartending the night we went. The only negative was that it was super crowded and we never seem to see the same server twice, various people brought us various things so it was hard to know who to ask for when you needed something. Because it was so crowded it was also very noisy -we were next to a large table who had people who kept coming over, It would be nice if they could space tables out more Or avoid putting the large noisy groups in the bar area. But overall it is one of our favorite places to eat

    The meal was very tasty and the service was excellent. The Caesar salad was crispy and the dressing was very good but not overwhelming. My wife and split the salad and it was a perfect amount. I was a little disappointed with Frito Misto appetizer. The few fried shrimp were OK but the vegetables were soggy and the batter did not adhere to the vegetables. The calamari were very small, over battered and fried a bit too long. Both of our entrees were delicious (lasagna and pasta carbonara) and the portions very generous. Overall it was a very good dining experience.
