    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.

    Celebrated our anniversary. Despite putting that in the notes, the first table we were given was not great. Nothing was mentioned or done. Food was okay. Came highly recommended. Probably wouldn’t go back.

    I was really looking forward to my dining experience with my friend. Everything was great except my salmon it was over cooked and dry. I have had this entree before and have never been disappointed. Last nights experience the noise level was high the food was not good. Because it’s always been a favorite in the past I will give it another try.

    Very pleasant Italian restaurant a few blocks from the Ocean. Service was really good, polite, knowledgeable and efficient. Everything was clean. We ate early so it wasn't crowded at all. By the time we left, about 7:45 it was getting quite lively with a fun vibe. We'll try it again.

    Fresh made everything! We go to Cucina Alessa because they make their pastas in house along with all their food being made fresh to order. The service is top notch. Ask for a wine recommendation, they can pair wine with any dish.

    Took 45 minutes for our appetizers to arrive - place was very busy and maybe short-staffed - I think we just timed it bad with some larger parties. However, the food was delicious, portions large and good value. The veal chop special was done exceptionally well.
