giant meatball + marinara + mozzarella + polenta
Great young host staff. Young giris were very personable.
The waiter was terrible. Hard to find. Took forever to get vino ordered. He seemed new - untrained - struggled with your hand held computer.
We were on the inside patio - far right table for two with couch type seats. The couple next to us were celebrating their anniversary and had the sage issues. We all discussed it.
I know hiring is tough now. That said - better training is needed. And like the hostesses - “hire personalities “.
Great service great food dining outside so no real ambience
I love the vibe inside. It's a beautiful restaurant. Everything I've had here is very good. I think the chicken fra diavlo with polenta and broccolini and a side of brussel sprouts are my favorite and pizzas are good. I haven't tried the pasta yet but one person in my party said it was delicious and the others in my party loved the meatball appetizer. Servers have been excellent.
Always love Cucina Enoteca. The food and the service is great. I wish you would bring back the Shrimp Puttanesca, it was one of our favorites. I haven’t seen it on the menu for a few years.
We dined outside and people consistently excited the restaurant past our table to the parking lot. We had a very good experience except for this stream of traffic.
Great food. Loved the squash blossoms & the pizza was excellent!!!
LOVE! Food, service and atmosphere was spot on. Can't wait to go back!
Our reservation was honored immediately, disservice by Victor was excellent in our discussion of the wine selection with the assistant manager was superb. All this and the food was served an excellent presentation and very tasty.
Great food, service and ambience!
Sat outside, it was great!
Our waitress was wonderful and the table bussers were also attentive and friendly.
The food was delicious and the drink were great
Restaurant appears to be suffering from lack of skilled labor. Took 10 mins to seat our reservation tho plenty of open table. Food is very good but service lacking. Brought one entre out 25 minutes before others. Waiter was not even aware we had not received salads and appetizers yet and the one person who got an entre was already done. Comped us for the one meal, which was nice. Overall, the place was so loud that even at a quiet table, had to yell every sentence. Why don’t they put some sound deadening materials in the dining room? The noise is so loud that probably won’t return soon. Too bad as I like the food.
Very nice vegetarian options. It would be great if they could add one or two more veg pasta options. The service was pretty slow though.
Delicious food, good service and wonderfully comfortable outdoor area. We will be back and have been there many times before.
I was really turned off by the 4% surcharge for workers' healthcare benefits on top of expecting a 20% tip. If the restaurant doesn't have funds for healthcare then raise the cost of meals.
One pasta dish with spinach sounded like it would be a nice light dish, but was soaked with oil. Otherwise food was good, especially the Brussels sprouts.
It took too long for our drinks to arrive, but other than that, it was a great dining experience.
Food was incredible. Ambience is excellent. Took forever to be able to order drinks and even longer to get drinks.
Service was a bit slow, food was very good!
This place has always been consistent in tasting good! Always a great go too with an awesome ambience
EXTREMELY EXPENSIVE! NOT MANY CLEAN CHOICES. NEED TO UPDATE MENU. WILL NOT BE RETURNING DUE TO EXTREMELY HIGH PRICES!!!!!!
Enoteca is always a good choice for people who love European wines, quite an extensive wine list. Food is excellent.
Our waiter worked hard but did not openly come to our table without us asking.
The service and cocktails were really good. The shining light was the food. The ingredients were so fresh leading to amazing tasty food. I really recommend this place.
Great service. Buzzy atmosphere. Delicious food & drink - it is consistently good here.
Server spilled red wine on my guest who had white pants on while pouring. Didn't really say much but got some soda water. Didn't offer to get them cleaned or anything else.
A fun, upbeat, upscale restaurant with really good food. The chopped salad was delicious. Pizza very good and the giant meatball was one of the best I have ever eaten. I definitely recommend this restaurant.
Gerado was an excellent server...attentive, communicative and funny!
Everyone loved their meal and being outside is a great alternative to spreading/catching a virus indoors, even though we were all vaccinated!
Staff was awesome, especially this first week coming off mask restrictions etc. , very accommodating with our group wanting to sit indoors instead of outside. Food was outstanding. Wine options of course outstanding also. All around a great dining experience.
It’s a great place to meet & talk if your outside
Great place to share a few small plates, or have a nice dinner, octopus was good and the giant meatball with polenta is huge, we shared a buratta salad and pizza, overall a great place to go for dinner, with both indoor and outdoor seating available
We had a great time here. We brought our puppy and grandkids and sat outside. Everyone was so nice! The food was yummy and we didn’t have to wait long for anything. It was all perfectly timed and they were so nice to our puppy! We ate outside and it was lovely! First time at the restaurant but my husband said we should go back in couple days! That’s how much he liked it! Thank you!
The food was delicious. And served hot ... which we appreciate. The server was pleasant, attentive and not overly so.
All in all, very pleased. Kudos to Traci and staff !
Had reservations for inside dining on June 12th @ 6:45. Hostess sat us down around 7 pm between two very large groups of people. The noise level was absolutely terrible. We then requested an outside table so we could at least carry on a conversation with each other. Outside dining had absolutely no ambiance. It was like sitting outside on your back patio with no music or entertainment. I asked if we could sit upstairs on the outside patio and were told it wasn’t open for dining guests. The last few times we have dined at this restaurant we have noticed that the selection on the menu is very limited and doesn’t offer anything too exciting. Also, our waiter forgot to ask after dinner if we might like to have dessert. Will probably not return for dining here until things get somewhat back to normal somewhere down the road. It use to be on our favorites list, but not any longer.
Amazing as always :)
Nice food. they brought wrong order, fixed right away it was good. Overtaked waiters, sort of neglected us but responded when asked. Food was fine. a nice place to have and to use . We would go back.
Food was delicious!
cucina is always a great place for friends or date night. Went there for a graduation celebration with girlfriends and we had a blast. Our server was a sweetheart and the food is always amazing. The chopped salad, mushroom pizza, Brussels sprouts and fries are all amazing! Oh and the squash blossoms! But you can’t go wrong with anything on the menu. Great to get a few things and share or do that and get your own. The cocktails are great and selection of wine and mocktails are amazing. The decor is so Unique and fun. Fits the equestrian area so well. One of my go to spots!
I took my wife for her first time and was really looking forward to a fantastic meal and date. Our food was good; I was hoping for the short rib polenta, but that wasn't on the menu. Our waiter was disorganized and distracted. He interrupted our happy hour order to go to another table to take their payment. After that taking 5 minutes, he returned to finish taking our order, then telling us we might miss happy hour pricing. By the way, the people whose payment was urgent stayed another 20 minutes.
Overall it was still an ok experience, but not what I expected given past visits.
