Everything we ordered was delicious, our waiter forgot one of our dessert orders and walked away in the middle of our order-taking.

We had reservations for Saturday night. We were seated promptly. The restaurant was packed . We had a great friendly waitress, food was awesome and so was the drinks.
It is very loud so I would not recommend for a romantic dinner but any other occasion is great.

Cucina Enoteca never fails to make me shine whenever I take a client to lunch and this time was no exception ... we were seated promptly on a Friday for lunch (we had a reservation and I HIGHLY recommend making one, although the staff will do whatever they can to accommodate if you didn't make a reservation) and had an excellent server who knew the menu well and made great recommendations. We shared Stuffed Squash Blossoms - tender and perfectly fried, Burnt Brussels Sprouts - delicious with a spicy sauce on the side, and we all had different salads that were fresh, unique and full of flavor! On our way out, one of my guests asked the hostess about a wine and she sent the sommelier to assist. He asked what she liked and then said he had just the right bottle and asked if we'd like a taste ... then he opened a new bottle, told us all about the vineyard and the wine and was extremely engaging ... he made a terrific impression on my client and of course, it all reflected on me ;)

First time and we were from out of town. Service was friendly and well done. My friend and I wear eating very healthy and with the menu, it was not a problem. My only complaint was the small water glasses. I felt like I was bugging the waiter and helper way too much to refill our glasses. I loved the decor and ambience.

The service was awful. Management pathetic. Pizza redone twice in over an hour. Both times undercooked and soggy. Pasta like mashed potatoes. Gross. Incredibly disappointed. As records will show, I have been a good , consistent customer since restaurant opened.
Beyond disappointed

Quite a scene downstairs, and very loud. Love the dreamy atmosphere upstairs, there’s a bar, plants everywhere, cozy with a lounge and a few tables. Excellent service, food consistently yummy.

It was way too noisy for us! Ruined the whole meal.
It’s a shame because otherwise we generally like your restaurant. We could not converse and there were only five of us.

We’ve enjoyed brunch there and the noise was not an issue.

Went to Cucina enoteca for restaurant week with a group of friends. The place was very busy and loud. We got the squash blossoms and calamari in tomato sauce. There were only 2 squash blossoms in the appetizer. For Entrees we got the short rib pappardelle and steak. The steak was ordered medium, but turned out medium-well and the edges were burnt hard and difficult to chew. I do not recommend the steak here, there are other unique options. The lemon appetizer was delicious, but a very small portion.
