Butcher paper on table, a white or red check tablecloth would be nicer. Lasagna lacked garlic. But I love garlic. Bethany is great server. Will try again.

Things were ok till I saw the bartender digging into her shoe like she was scratching the bottom of her foot, then didn’t wash her hands and continued to work- including touching the fruit with her bare hands and putting it in drinks. Disgusting!

The food was spectacular, including the gnocchi with lamb ragu. The service (by Kennedy) was just as spectacular.

It was a reservation for four. Upon entry I was not impressed with the setting more utilitarian then mood setting. The Hostess escorted us to our table, which I was not satisfied with and requested a different table in another part of the restaurant. She complied with my request and sat our party elsewhere. We ordered wine, appetizers, main course and after dinner coffee. All of which were average/above average in preparation and presentation. The issue occurred during our after dinner coffee. We were approached by a young lady who ask, “I long did we think we were going to be sitting there” and explained our table was part of a reservation that needed to be seated. Mind you it was ~10 minutes after our dinner plates were cleared for dessert. I thought it was rude as if the Hostess was aware of the large reservation we could have seated us at an open table and avoided this “bums rush” approach to an otherwise pleasant experience. I will reconsider visiting Cucina 503 in the future.

Enjoyed the dining experience here, with only a couple of hiccups. With the butcher paper being used as a tablecloth, it was hard to determine where the table edges were. We both dropped silverware at some point during the meal, and we kept our drinks right in the middle so it too wouldn’t be dropped.

Service was excellent, and she had good recommendations based on our tastes.

We were seated promptly in the bar. This was our first time eating at Cucina. For appetizers we had the mussels and the meatballs. Both were excellent. And the mussels were enough to split with the other couple who dined with us. For entrees we had the gnocchi and lasagne and both of us were raving about both dishes. A wonderful evening. The only irritant was the brown paper on the table.

We arrived a few minutes before 5pm and were promptly seated outside. Our Server was great, explained the menus and was efficient on requests. Food tasted great as always. We love the lasagna and even the pizza was good!

I wish a salad came with the entrees as I feel like it would bring more value to the meal and price I’m paying. Cocktails are a little pricey as well. We would drink more if they were $6/8 vs $9/11

My only request is that you offer to turn on the heaters. By the time our meal ended I was freezing.

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.
