Our server was great. Menu was nice and food was tasty. Loved the selection of wines and the prices. Will be coming back.
Excellent food and server. Just a little noisy
As always, very much enjoyed the service, food and ambience. Went back to the burger this time, great decision. Try it with Fried egg, medium rare if you like. However, you can never go wrong with pasta dishes!
Enjoyed it very much with great service and better food
A++!! The place is always packed. Parking is a challenge at times. Food A++++
This place is great! We looooooooved the food and the ambience is really FUN! Totally recommend it.
Expensive, $70 per person for dinner with two glasses of moderately priced wine each. Food was a mixed bag. Broccoli appetizer was great. Calamari appetizer was lukewarm and somewhat bland. Snapper entrée was delicious but hard to eat -- weird to be using fingers in pricey restaurant. Shrimp entrée was bland and lukewarm. So this is becoming a "beautiful people" place more than a great dining experience, and I give it another year before the "beautiful people" go somewhere else. Like RIP Searsucker!
Cucina Enoteca did not disappoint. We came to celebrate a birthday with out-of-town family and everyone was beyond happy with what they ordered.
Great atmosphere for fabulous food. The waiter was super attentive too
It was inviting and full of happy chatting patrons. We loved our food and the service was superior.
Favorite restaurant in Northern San Diego. It never fails to deliver.
CUCINA ENOTECA NEVER DISAPPOINTS! Amazing Service, Fabulous Food & Drink, Great Atmosphere - LOVE This Gem! Salute!
Appetizers were decent, but main course was very bland. Steamed bass was very overcooked and had absolutely no flavor. Pappardelle had very little seasoning and was tough and rubbery. The short ribs in it were also bland. Overall, I was disappointed and would definitely not recommend this place.
Festive, friendly place! Food and cocktails were outstanding and our Server Ryan was the best - we will definitely return!
Food is always great - it's too noisy for conversation.
Everything was outstanding! Our server, Frederico was attentive, fun and informative. Every bit of food was outstanding. The ambiance is lively and fun. A little noisy but not too much. Our table of four over 55’s were able to carry a conversation just fine. We’ll be back!
Holiday family and friends dinner. Great drinks and the food was excellent!
Had a great time.
The food and service were great !
The service was not very good at all. The price of wine seems extremely high for a “retail” shop. The food was ok, but no follow through with the serving staff. Overall it was good.
Great dining experience for special and business occasions. Cozy and home ambience.
Excellent meal from appetizers to entrees to dessert — and outstanding service.
Unfortunately this time we were seated next to 2 huge groups (moms + daughters) and they were very noisy...Bad luck...
We go often and the food is great!
Always a pleasurable experience at Cucina Enoteca. We met another couple and had a festive pre-holiday get together. Ou r server made sure to chill our bottles of wine , just in case we
We reside in Texas, but immediately want to return each visit to Carlsbad!! Keep up the great job.
Hot bar scene & very busy. It is so noisy that it is difficult to speak with those with whom you are dining. The food was very salty & service fair. We arrived at 5:30 yet didn't receive our dinner until 7 pm. Disappointing since it used to be our favorite spot.
nice place and nice food but somewhat overpriced for lunch.
On the positive side, see above. On the negative side two comments: our dinner was less suitable because the lights in our area were too dim (We could not read the menu, used an i- phone flash, and loud noise made conversation impossible.)
We came to celebrate a special occasion with a group of friends but it was so, so loud it was impossible to talk. That was disappointing and I likely won’t ever return with a group for that reason. Probably would be okay with just two people.
Noise level was a little much. Food and service were great. The food took much longer to serve than it should have however.
We took a friend there for her birthday dinner. We ordered a bottle of wine and hors d'oeuvres. they were so good that we just kept ordering more and never got to the entree. Excellent.
I usually love this place but this time our waiter was busy with a table of cute girls. Our pastas were brought to the table before the appetizers. When the waiter noticed he sent them back to the kitchen. I think they landed under a heat lamp. When they were returned to us, they were dry and the pasta was over cooked. The waiter sent over dessert and bubbly to make up for it. The pastas should have been remade. There is no excuse for this mistake. Pasta is not expensive.
All in all a very enjoyable experience. Service was a touch slow however on the night I was there it was extremely busy. For its location prices where reasonable and food quantity plentiful.
I will be back and would recommend this to friends
Enjoyed the chopped salad and pizza a lot......very tasty.
Only complaint would be the loud choice of music.
Would have been nice to have some softer sounds at lunch.
I enjoy this restaurant but service varies. Last time, our service was fantastic. I asked for vegan suggestions and I had so many recommendations, I had a hard time deciding. This time, our waiter suggested one thing- pasta with veggies (not on the menu). I asked him about a couple of things on the menu that looked obvious- he didn’t know but would check. They were vegan fand that’s what I had.
I started going here with friends because it is vegan friendly, but that appears to vary with the waiters.
Rachel was amazing and extremely helpful! Food and drinks are outstanding! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Great food and service. Fantastic wine selection by the glass.
Great food and service with a large selection of wine. Pasta and pizza is great
Amazing ambiance, great service, and delicious cuisine. The energy of the restaurant was electric and truly enjoyable. We have already planned out our next visit and what we will try. Can’t wait!
Delicious as always! Can’t beat that meatball - I have to order it every time!
