    This has been our go to place for nights when we are going to the symphony. Good value, timely, great food usually. Last night was the exception to that. Will try again but hopefully they will be back to their normal. Not sure what was off, but it was for us.

    Upon entering Cucina 503, we enjoyed the quaint décor before being greeted and shown to our table by a friendly hostess. The service throughout the evening was impeccable due to our attentive and personable waiter. As for the food, it was absolutely delicious with filling portion sizes. I’m glad that I was able to convert my mom and sister into lamb enjoyers! Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed my experience and will definitely return to and recommend Cucina 503.

    Food was just OK. Service way below the expectations. I believe the issue is that they are short handed. They didn’t offer bread neither Parmesan cheese

    Food is consistently good servers are friendly, but they must be shorthanded because it seems to take longer to get food and drink refills than it used to.  Still overall a great place to eat.

    Indulge your taste buds in a culinary journey at Cucina, an Italian gem nestled in the heart of Morganton, GA. From the moment you step inside, you're greeted with an ambiance that screams Italian authenticity. But it's the flavors that truly steal the show. Let's talk about their spaghetti carbonara—a dish that takes you straight to the streets of Rome with every savory bite. While some may argue it's not quite on par with Maria Mingrino's, Cucina's rendition comes tantalizingly close, boasting a creamy richness that dances harmoniously with perfectly cooked pasta and crispy pancetta. Each forkful is a symphony of flavors that leaves you longing for more. And let's not forget the impeccable service and cozy atmosphere that complete the dining experience. In summary, Cucina is a culinary delight not to be missed, offering a taste of Italy right here in Morganton.

    All was great except tables are snug and restaurant was very loud. Server was flighty but likable. He brought shareables for the table with no plates, forgot the butter until the bread was almost gone, iced tea with no ice, etc. Little things.

    The food is good but not worth the price considering you are eating at a table covered in white butcher paper. Drink prices are far too high (glass of house wine is $10). Overall, food is good but ambiance and prices need improvement.

    Cucina is one of my favorite places to eat when I'm home in Augusta, it's consistently delicious. Both the food and cocktails are awesome and the owner is extremely kind every time. Great staff as well. Cucina is perfect for a girls night out, date night, family dinner, any and every occasion.

    Awful experience, the male bartender was extremely loud. What I was anticipating was a quiet evening with my date for Valentine’s Day. What we got was a loud environment with very little communication between the servers and table. Things were just placed on the table with no communication. Servers and bartenders were extremely loud and not very aware that people may have came to this restaurant wanting a quiet evening. The food wasn’t worth the money, do not recommend this establishment.

    Outstanding. Edward told my fiancé to try the lamb and if she did not like he would swap it out as she never tried it. She did not like and to his word changed it out. I offered to pay for it and he stated no as he wanted her to try something different. We have been several times and now have a great appreciation for what Edward is doing well done sir and thanks

    We always get the mussels for an appetizer, but this time the bread with it was charred. Waiter did not check on us until we were finished eating. Mussels bowl, shells stayed on our table for two until we flagged someone down to remove them. My risotto was good, but my husband did not like his lasagna as much.

    The food that we ordered was good. I was disappointed because I wanted collard greens with the pork chop. I was told I could only have collard greens with the duck. I don’t like duck. They were unwilling to accommodate so I did not order an entree. It’s good food and the service otherwise was wonderful. I will not go back though.

    Food and service were good but nothing that would bring me back. But absolutely nothing wrong with it. A question when making the reservation was if this was a special occasion and I said yes, it was our 45th anniversary but once we got there, there was no mention made of it. Some restaurants will give a complementary dessert or glass of champagne but that wasn’t done
