    We dine at Cucina Alessa in Huntington Beach a couple times a month. It is because the food and service are top notch. We had three couples this time and every order was excellent including the chicken parm and angel hair pasta with shrimp. Meatballs as an app are always wonderful. They make good drinks and Alfonso is a great waiter and person. We always look forward to the next time.

    My brother, visiting from Australia, my husband & I enjoyed a wonderful dinner tonight. We were celebrating my birthday as well as my brother’s last night with us before leaving for the East Coast. We shared a bottle of house Chardonnay, fritta misto , carparccip, large green salad. I had the shrimp pasta special (too much food 🤣), my husband had the swordfish special & my brother had the lobster ravioli. Excellent food, great service but the best was the tiramisu we shared for dessert!! Highly recommend this restaurant!!!

    Our first server asked if the table we were seated at was ok? It was extremely loud and we were having trouble hearing each other. They offered to move us upstairs and it was very quiet and much more comfortable. Josh or server was amazing and an excellent bartender. The food was excellent as always, hats off to the chef and their staff. Cucina Alessa one of the best restaurants in HB! Thank you Josh for an excellent dining experience! KD

    A very enjoyable evening with great drinks, wine and wonderful food! A really attentive staff that made us welcomed the minute we walked in, the servers were on top of it and made sure we had everything we needed and a nice farewell from the hostess! Definitely will return and enjoy another great evening.

    Just a pre beach brunch moment. Slightly off the main strip in Huntington and worth finding. The people there were warm and friendly from the hostess to our server and the manager. We felt like we were treated as long time patrons but it was our first time there. I had the champagne cranberry pomegranate drink while my wife had sparkling water. We both had the eggs Benedict and it was made with focaccia bread and prosciutto, lovely. I was tempted to order seconds but knew I’d be too full afterwards. This is a cute gem of an Italian restaurant that is authentic and worth putting in rotation. We will be back and you should give it a try too

    Consistently great food! We visit often and came last night for my wife’s birthday. Susie was our server and she was exceptional…so friendly and gracious. The special fried burrata cheese was outstanding and the fresh, warm bread with pesto is delicious and a nice touch. We’ve never had a mediocre meal here…it’s seriously always super delicious! Whether a special occasion or a casual meal, we highly recommend Cucina Alessa at both locations: HB and NB. You will not be disappointed!

    Well it was ok. I don’t know why they ask if it’s a special occasion because they don’t do anything? Food was ok. Got the lobster ravioli. Sauce was a little salty. Experience was eh. Been there before and it was ok, wanted to try it again.
