Went for dinner with 3 couples on a Sunday night before going to see a concert at the Belly Up. The food was delicious! We shared the cheese & salumi platter and chicken liver pate to start. Then had the Gnoccheti Sardi pasta and my husband had the Branzino fish. Both were excellent. Everyone loved the food and our waiter was very good.
Excellent place all around!
Always a great meal!
We have been to this restaurant previously, and enjoyed it then. The pasta special was delicious. Also very good was the brussels sprouts.
I was really disappointed this time around. I have been many times and things are usually “good”. Fine service, ok food, and weak drinks. This most recent time was terrible. I made a reservation for my mothers 60th birthday. When we arrived they had an emergency in the kitchen and weren’t seating people. The girls at the front were very blunt and rude. They didn’t give us a time of how long it was going on, no discount, nothing. So we waited because it was a Friday night and everywhere else would be crazy. They said that they would text when they got things cleared up. They never did we went back in and asked them what was going on and they said oh yes were sitting again now so communication was terrible. Once we got seated they took many good options off their menu. Food came out and was burned. And the bill was over 100$! Unfortunately they have forever lost our business.
The kitchen had a water leak so our food was delayed 15 mins. Food overall was good. But bring back the beet salad!!! Why take away your best seller!!! We will be back again.
We went for my daughters 17th birthday. Atmosphere was lively, the food was great and service outstanding. We love coming here!!
Our server was terrific! He coursed everything perfectly and suggested a great bottle of wine. We will be back!!
Food isn’t as good as the cucina in mission hills. Food delivery person wasn’t up to par. Our waiter was great.
We had a reservation for a friends birthday. Not real happy sitting back by the bathrooms in the bar area; especially because we had a reservation. If you are in the main dining area, it has a nicer ambiance. The waitress did a good job, but it took a long time for the food to arrive. The dessert also took a good 15 - 20 min to arrive after we ordered it. Food was good but nothing so notable as to make a return visit.
I would rank this as an average restaurant.
Open Table reservation was easy. Got sat immediately. Waiter was very detailed oriented at beginning, then downhill from there. After ordering...took 15 mins to get drink from bar that I had to remind him of. We ordered an app, an entree, and a side dish. App came out with burnt bread. I asked for some more and received some little side breads. It was so loud we couldn’t understand each other. Entree and side came 45 mins after ordered?! We had some pasta left and some Brussel sprouts that were whisked away before I could say I’ll take a box please. So I assumed they were bringing back a box but nothing came. Not impressed...didn’t want to bother explaining to a manager because my wife and I just wanted to leave at that point. Bummer, because we have enjoyed in the past.
Absolutely delicious! The food was yummy and the wine was fantastic!!
Food was fantastic as it always it. Great drinks, great appetizers, great entrees. Absolutely love this restaurant!
The restaurant was fantastic - great food, fun yet semi-formal atmosphere, attentive and impressive wait staff. The 6 of us really enjoyed our experience and would return in a heartbeat!
WE celebrated my birthday and enjoyed the evening. Our server was great and very attentive.
We tried it when it first opened and it was a shadow of what it is now. Nice food; really outstanding service; pleasant fun place.
Everything was great, but I was surprised (shocked?) to hear that they have a $9.00 corkage fee (except for Easter) for a bottle of wine purchased AT THE RESTAURANT.
Great for dinner with drinks! The food is amazing!!! Try the burrata, the octopus, the mushroom pizza with truffle oil and you can’t miss the chocolate budino!!!
Great spot for practically any occasion. The food and drinks were great as well.
Extremely poor service and over an hour to get the food after it was ordered and then another 20 minutes for the birthday girls food.
Generally very good but something with the kitchen system last night caused a long delay and my guests meals to be delivered totally out of sync.
The food, as always, was outstanding, and our waitress was attentive, friendly and helpful. But our experience (and birthday celebration) was tainted by the hostess who scolded us for being 15 minutes late for our reservation. When I checked my reservation, I showed her manager that I was on time and didn't appreciate the scolding when it was her mistake, but got I didn't get an apology, just an excuse. This is a great restaurant, but this experience left me with a bad taste.
Food/service were excellent as always. Sure to go back!
Superb service , good food and wine pairing
Great fried squash blossoms! Easy to talk at this restaurant because thankfully it isn't too loud. Good food, good service despite a short wait.
My wife and I's got to place for good food and drinks. It's a little hectic for the parking, but the place is well worth it.
This place it top notch! Great server and food, it was a nice dining experience!
This was my first time there and I was meeting a friend. Everything was wonderful, my only complaint was we dat at the round table near the bar/ bathrooms and felt like it was a little too bright. It's not a big deal, but it seemed bright as I looked at the rest of the restaurant with their dim lit ambience.
Delicious food. Terrific service from DRE. Very noisy. Too cold but DRE made adjustment. Pleasantly surprised how tasty the meals were.
After 2 excellent meals with business colleagues in last 3 months, took my family for dinner when our son came to town. Excellent California take on Italian food, super wine choices and wonderful service. We will definitely return!
I took my Uncle Harry and his wife Margie out for his 100th birthday! It is one of his favorite restaurants. They enjoyed it thoroughly and the staff was attentive. Your menu is wonderful and creative. I had the octopus and it was delicious and beautifully presented as was the rest of the meals. The polenta was ordered for everyone to share and delicious. It brought back good memories since our grandparents were Hungarian and we were raised on Mamaliga which is similar to polenta. Looking forward to eating here when I visit next year.
Always delicious and great service
The location is great, the food excellent, the staff very good and friendly, but the high energy and vibe was fantastic. Really fun time and great experience.
Another fantastic lunch at Cucina! Thank you!
Our only concern its weird charging a cork fee for wines you picked there on their shop.
Service and food were both excellent. We showed up 30 minutes early to our reservation (which is highly recommended) and they were able to accommodate us within minutes.
My husband and I used always come here. Last time we went, it was after a while and a lot has changed. They have decreased their menu options and increased the portions. That being said, the quality and taste wasn’t as good as it used to be. We were very disappointed
Really loud! I asked for a quiet table because I know the main dining room is very loud. Was assured that I would get. Meanwhile, seated in loud room! Wow! Eventually, and begrudgingly was seated in quieter area. Food was ok. Salmon was very salty
Pleasant atmosphere, attentive wait staff and excellent food.
