    Very little lightning at most tables (inconsistent) and very noisy. Usually it is even noisier when they play music on a high volume

    I have frequented Cucina Enoteca numerous Times over the last 10 years and granted it was busy last night but one of our servers was really curt and rude. When we asked for larger plates for our shared salad for 4 as we were doing everything family style he argued with us. I pointed out that they had taken our cutlery after our appetizer and he totally ignored me and didn’t come back with any new sets for us so we had to wait till we could catch the eye of another server. When we asked which pasta was which as one of us doesn’t eat meat he seemed annoyed with us for asking. Our waitress Allison was lovely but also MIA half the time. We were a table of 4 who are not demanding customers. Also when a salad costs $39 and is said to be family size I except a little more of the added ingredients and not a bowl full of lettuce and also a little more taste to it. The Brussel sprouts and mushroom pizza were delicious !

    From the hostesses, bartender and our waiter, it was a really lovely experience. My friend and I enjoyed drinking wine and having the meatball appetizer and never once felt rushed to turn over the table. It has always been a favorite spot to eat at in Del Mar.

    We asked for indoor seating and were seated in the patio area. Our food was served at different times. Portion sizes were not worth the price. One of our guests was not able to eat with the party because his food was served to another patron. Probably will not eat at this establishment again. The experience was not worth the >$500 spent.

    I came here for Mom's Night Out. I ordered the pepperoni pizza without the hot honey. The other moms ordered truffle fries, short rib bolognese, mussels and octopus. We all enjoyed our food. The pizza was still a bit spicy even without the hot honey. We were seated a few minutes later after checking in for our reservation. And when we requested a different table, the hostess and waitress gladly accommodated.

    Met a friend for dinner on a Saturday night, hostesses were not super friendly - walked me into,the bar and said your is over there….wait what? Where? Had to ask a server for more assistance ( not cool) Server was friendly and accommodating, squash blossoms are a must, one pizza ordered - do not go that direction , boring and plain. I on the other hand a a fabulous chicken Milanese - wowza! A definite must order again! No dessert, bottle of wine. I would return for the chicken alone !

    There was a lot of space in the restaurant, but the host was trying to seat us on a side table where a family was already sitting, and there was barely any space for two people. I requested that she give her another table, which she accepted, but I would have expected her to find the appropriate table for us in the first place.

    Food was great ! Unfortunately we had to flag a wait person down for service. He was nice enough to give us water, take our drink order and grab our waiter. Waiter was nice (flowered shirt) but definitely not in a hurry and after taking our order, again had to flag him down for our check. It was New Year’s Eve , maybe they needed to hire more help?! On the whole, good experience, definitely recommend!

    We have been to Enoteca many times for date night and always enjoy our visit. Service was good and the ambiance was good as well. We have had the charcuterie board many times, sometimes it is one of the best, but this time it was disappointing. We had the mushroom and goat cheese pizza which was good, but needed a bit more goat cheese. Overall, we will be back, but would like to see them improve the charcuterie board.

    Food was great! Our waiter was as attentive as he could be, but he had too many tables and little-to-no help with getting utensils, plates, clearing dishes, etc. (the stuff that other staff tends to cover). He was apologetic and did what he could. We really enjoyed the meal!

    First of all the food is absolutely not tasty. Pasta which costs around 30$ cooked in a Mexican Street food truck. I asked less chill, but no one cared and I tried to eat this pasta without any enjoyment since it was very hot! Fish was also cooked pretty simply and not tasty. Cocktail Long Island - usually has Coca-Cola, but they prepare it in different ways without any updated information. Another cocktail which is classic Italian and in an Italian restaurant supposed to be perfect but also bad! Our waiter did not clean the table from dishes for around 20 minutes after we were done. The table was dirty and he did not clean it before putting our dessert. We ate it on a dirty table. So! I never had so a bad experience in all the dishes drinks coffee dessert service in the same restaurant.
