    Went there to celebrate my mom’s birthday. Food was ok. Boring and forgettable. Appetizers were the best (polenta and octopus). They brought cannolis with a candle fir my mom but they were old, chewy. Service was really nice although we felt rushed. The noise was loud! We couldn’t have a normal conversation. It’s too bad because in the past we all had a great experience.

    Wanted to try out this place based on the reviews. The only thing I suggest getting based on what we tried would be the squash blossom.

    A very busy restaurant but the young staff was friendly and very helpful amidst the noise and energy needs to serve. The menu was lacking slightly in dinner choice ie. pasta and main dishes but the salads and pasta was large enough to share and delicious. Wine list was large. Will come back again.

    Took my family here for my birthday dinner because of the desired ambiance and perfect wine selection. Not only did both me and my husband love our entrees, but my 9-year old exclaimed that the past was the best he had ever had (the spaghetti noodles were handmade and hollow, to both kids delight and fascination). The burnt brussell sprouts were plentiful and tasty. And, the gianduja chocolate torte was phenomenal! It's worth coming back just for wine and dessert!

    Two members of my family have celiac disease and need to eat strictly gluten free - Cucina Enoteca has a ton of options for them and the wait staff is very knowledgeable about what is safe and how to modify dishes. The outside seating is lovely. Excellent wine list as well as a retail wine shop with a lot of selections.

    We come here regularly- one of our fav restaurants in SD. Tho this last time we came our table group felt that whoever was working that night in the kitchen had a heavy hand with black pepper and black peppercorns. Was borderline returnable plates. Two of us had the short rib papadelle and way too much peppercorns. Almost hard to eat. Plus another friends dish was way too peppery as well. I just wanted to let you know for future. Thanks

    I’ve eaten at this location probably 75 times and Urbana used to be my stomping ground and all I will say is that the food last night was absolutely terrible! I truly hope they turn the kitchen around they were normally so top notch! It was dead and I know why! I felt so bad for the servers they were wonderful per normal!

    I dropped the teenagers off at the fair and had to kill time. I sat at the perfect table and Evan my server took great care of me. I started with the squash blossoms , amazing . My entree was the sweet pea pasta, delicious . Couldn’t stop there had a yummy chocolate dessert with amaretto wiped cream. They also have a wonderful selection of wines you can purchase. I will be back!

    Cucina has a great vibe & atmosphere usually. Which honestly is why We continue to support them. Very quiet last nite but it probably was because it was a holiday weekend. My one major complaint. Since they opened years ago they’ve never changed or tweaked the menu. Since we aren’t pasta or pizza eaters, our main course choices never vary. Just 4. For starters we had the Brussels - always absolutely delicious. Main course: I had the Diablo chicken - usually a generous potion. Not last night. And not Diablo. It was plain roasted chicken. My husband had the steak. Very tender - but a small portion. Good wait staff. No complaints there. It would be nice to have a chefs special - just something to choose from other than the 4 ( getting boring) main choices…

    DELICIOUS food! Excellent service. Ate outside which was very pleasant; music was kind of loud and obnoxious when we first sat down-- we asked if they'd mind turning it down and to our very pleasant surprise they turned it off entirely. Can't recommend this place highly enough!!

    Reserved tickets sit outside on patio deck. We got there and found out that due to lack of servers it is closed indefinitely. We weee seated outside in an area that completely lacked any ambiance. Looked like a glorified picnic area with artificial grass. The server was overwhelmed and the only one out there. Went to the restroom and the difference between inside and outside is night and day! They said they were booked up and couldn’t move us inside even though there were some empty tables. Will have to return with inside reservations and try again

    Really good food, pretty noisy but still a fun environment, service is okay, waiter forgot one of the two drinks ordered and never remembered, also wasn’t really friendly, kind of seemed annoyed. Will go back of course, just need a better waiter.

    I will not be returning to this restaurant. The food was not very good and was a very poor value. The salad (not the chopped salad, the other salad with spinach) had no flavor at all. None. My pasta (with the tomato sauce and no meat) was so oily, like swimming in oil. I would expect that at a low quality restaurant but not a high and high priced restaurant like this one.
