    Cucina is always a great place to dine. Tonight it was unusually crowded due to al large party, so service was touch and go, but the servers were doing their best with the numbers. Food was great and came quickly.

    Waitress/waiter not attentive. Felt as if we were overlooked and served “others” first that came way after us. This is the second time I’ve experienced this.

    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.

    The restaurant held our reservation even though we were 15 minutes late. We were sat immediately upon arrival. The appetizers, main course, and dessert was all delicious. The service was fast. Our waitress was friendly. Everybody in the staff wore pink. It was a great night

    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.

    When we were done with the appetizer, the sever brought us a box while still waiting on our meal. It was just odd. I always want to love this place, but I just sort of like it. I won’t be rushing back.

    We have eaten at Cucina 503 many times and always leave with a smile on our faces. The Food and Fellowship of the staff is always first class and first rate. We always ask for server "Garson" and he knows and fills our drink order before we even sit down.

    The service is usually very good. The salads and bread service are great. The chicken mushroom pasta was a bit light on the protein ratio. Good beverage selection too

    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.

    Expect great drinks, good food, and attentive servers. I especially recommend the Cucina Signature Salad! Be aware that dining room noise levels can impede conversation during peak hours. Beyond that, it is all good!

    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

    We always enjoy Cucina - we chose to eat outside because it was very crowded, but service and food were both good. Love the lasagna and the flatbread pizzas. Brier Rose is our favorite waitress - always so happy when she is there!

    My husband and I dined this past Saturday evening for our anniversary dinner. Started with a cocktail and wine which were both good. I ordered the beet salad and the duck for my main. My husband ordered the caesar salad and the gnocchi rustici for his main. Both salads were good, nothing amazing, but good. Our main dishes were both subpar. My duck had little coloring to the skin and no rendering making the overall texture gooey and lacked seasoning. The gnocchi rustici had about 6 gnocchi total with a massive amount of ragu. The ratio of carbs to protein was very off leaving the dish unappetizing. The price after tax and tip was about $125. Disappointing considering the quality.
