    It’s was not busy, but our waiter was slow and inattentive. It wasn’t until after we left that I realized he charged us for an adult rigatoni for our 8 year old when he ordered from the kid menu. We likely won’t be back. Food was great but service subpar at best

    Fabulous lunch on the patio! Friendly, timely service and great food. OMG, if you are a fan of chopped salads, The Italian chopped salad is amazing. We also had the Chicken Milanese - what a treat! If you haven't been to Cucina Enoteca, you are missing a great experience.

    We have been to Cucina Enoteca many times . This time we were a party of 5 for lunch and had 3 appetizers and entrees. Our server was very attentive and helpful, gave good recommendations and kept our beverages replenished. The food was terrific, very fresh and flavorful. We weren't going to mention it but he asked if we were celebrating and we told him it was a graduation. He brought over a delicious Panna cotta which was a great way to end the meal. Will definitely be back!

    Service was 10/10. Great waiter. The food was cold especially the pasta and the pizza and it kind of took a while to get to us. The appetizers felt too little compared to the other times i dined there. Not really sure if i want to come back anymore. This isn’t the first time the food came like this.

    Had lunch with a few friends outside on the patio and it was just so lovely. My friend and I ordered the Italian Chopped Salad which was a wonderful flavorful blend of salad and vegetables. I asked for some burrata on top which I loved. The dressing was very light and balanced nicely with the salad ingredients. Definitely recommend it.
