Cucina 503 had a great ambience. Our dining experience was pleasurable. When we arrived there were not many patrons, but picked up throughout our dinner. Good selections. The Cucina 503 salad was a great portion; loved the vinaigrette. Ordered the Shrimp Risotto. Delicious, a bit too many tomatoes. We also requested a special drink and they made it for us.

Excellent food and wine. I had the meatballs as first course and the Gnocchi with Lamb Ragu as the entree. Both were really good but the Lamb Ragu took me back to Florence. Highly recommend this place!

The food was fabulous. Our service was good. But I think they may have had an HVAC problem. It was very warm in the restaurant.

Overall our experience was very good as usual. They're very conscious for covid-19 all staff wore masks. this is a great place to come during this pandemic because they always separate people very much! Luster lasagna is just to die for! I have never had lasagna this good!! While I will get the lasagna again we probably won't order the so-called prime ribeye here again. Recommend the lasagna or the mushroom chicken.

Wait staff was professional, efficient and timely, displaying a can-do attitude! Chef made an appearance to insure customer satisfaction. And, food was very good ! The thin-crusted pizza served as a good appetizer and the lasagna was probably the best I have ever eaten at a restaurant! Bread was warm and delicious!

My first visit for an anniversary dinner and I was very pleased with our meal and service. I brought half my meal home so that I could make room for tiramisu which was delicious. I now can say this is one of my new favorite restaurant.

Our dining experience was less than we expected. In all probability the fact we ate right after the restaurant re-opened probably contributed to the fact that food/drink was not the usual wonderful. Both our flatbread appetizers were overcooked and crunchy, not like they have been in the past. One of our bar drinks was definitely not as good as in the past, perhaps because of a different bartender. As I said, maybe this is because the restaurant has been closed for some time and just reopened. It's always been one of our favorite restaurants and I hope things will improve!

This restaurant is amazing. The food. I can’t say enough about the food. The PEI mussels we started with were perhaps the best mussels I’ve ever had and I was raised on the ocean!! The bread comes with a balsamic reduction butter that was just amazing. We split the Cucina salad, and hand on my heart, it was the freshest greens I ever remember having at at restaurant and the dressing was outstanding. We had the lasagna and carbonara as main entrees and let me tell you- the lasagna was the best I had ever had!! The bolognese sauce was incredible. Don’t even get me started on the flourless cake which was way more like slices of dark chocolate mousse. And our waitress Paula was incredible and informative, as was the rest of the staff that check in on us periodically. I cannot WAIT to go back!!

Excellent food and service. Pasta carbonara was as good as I have had in Italy! 4 person sitting next to us had way too much to drink and was so loud it was difficult for us to talk to each other. Other than that, 5 stars!

This was our second time dining at Cucina 503. We were absolutely blown away by the quality of the food the first time, so we couldn't wait to go back! Our flatbread appetizer was fantastic and my husband's ribeye was delicious and perfectly cooked. But I was sadly disappointed by my roasted chicken and mushroom papardelle. It was yummy for sure, but it didn't wow me. The pasta was overcooked and all cut up in pieces and it was overly sauced. I'm hoping it was just an off night because of being a busy Valentine's Day. Cucina is definitely still one of our favorite restaurants and I'm looking forward to trying a different pasta next time we go.
