    We all enjoyed our dinner. Everything was prepared well. I asked and was given a substitution on part of my dinner choice . I found Cucina Calandra service to be excellent.

    The fresh bread with cheese was excellent. I ordered the grilled octopus (26.00) and was disappointed. I didn't care much for the salad that it came on, since what I was craving is a nice piece of octopus. It was too chewy, overly charred and it didn't seem fresh to me. Overall, it was a nice place and service was good.
