This was my first time there. Lovely place to dine outside. Entire staff was nice. Noise level was not loud at all since the tables were distanced far apart from each other. Drinks and food were delicious. The only dish I thought was ok was the clam squid ink pasta. Not enough flavor for me so I would not order that again.
Very pleasant, well ventilated outdoor seating. Food was very tasty. Waitress was friendly, efficient, and helpful.
We were seated right away. Excellent service and very friendly. We were given 2 glasses of Prosecco to celebrate our anniversary - an unexpected and welcome surprise. Wonderful food, great service and ambiance made for a super evening.
Due to the pandemic, there aren’t too many restaurants that have outdoor seating. The staff at restaurant, were practicing the CDC guidelines which was comforting. We celebrated a birthday (11/24/20) and the ambiance was perfect and the food was good.
Amazing! Took my mom here for some mother daughter quality time, and she said loved it! Coming from a chef that’s a huge compliment! Thank you so much for the amazing experience and service!
Food was delicious amd service was outstanding! Every visit has been a good experience!
The experience at CUCINA was incredible. The food was amazing and the service was friendly. I highly recommend this place!
Delicious food, patio dining, and great service!
Great food and dinner on a weekday night.
Great atmosphere, great server. Menu and/or drink selection not all that great but decent
The food is always tasty at cucina and we LOVE the parmesan fries however, they must be served piping hot with lots of ketchup to get a 5 star rating. Ours were only slightly warm which could indicate a service issue.
Love their pizzas! Please bring back the Date, Bacon & Ricotta one, I believe. It would be nice to have a pizza that is sweet and savory.
We came here for my sisters birthday and the food was delicious a d the service was incredible as well as the ambiance. We sat on the patio and felt safe and distanced from the other guests. I highly recommend making a reservation as this place gets booked up fast.
We have been frequent customers since Cucina entoeca opened in Irvine. We enjoyed dining in the covered patio area. The server was attentive and the food selections were very tasty!
Excellent service, very limited menu selection. Good overall.
It was delicious and the employees were wonderful!
Great service. Great food
Food is amazing. Service was friendly and attentive.
Everyone was wonderful. Food and service were excellent.
One of my favorite spots!!! Of all the dining at the Irvine Spectrum, this is my go-to. Great wine selection, delicious food and great customer service.
Both food and service were excellent. They are COVID compliant and we never felt we were too close to other patrons.
Great meal and service!
It was great! I just had one negative: our waiter said they are pooling tips and I don’t think that’s a good idea. I think it’ll bring the overall service down because the food waiters won’t be motivated to be good.
Great experience! Server recommended a wonderful bottle of California red wine which we enjoyed. Pasta dish the kitchen sent wasn’t right the first round but the server quickly had it remade. Solid Italian food, ample patio dining space and chill ambiance.
The only problem is with the hostess. We reserved for patio and were seated inside. We were disappointed that our table was given to a walk in.
Food was not great. Service was excellent. Menu was very limited
All was great especially our server...but where we were seated we could hear the restaurant next door and all we heard were screaming and crying children. We were trying to relax and take some time off from our own children so it was very annoying.
Such a delicious lunch! The flavors were rich and complementary. The outside patio was perfect and safe. I appreciate the focus on social distance and cleanliness. Perfect!
it was an amazing place! my friend and i enjoyed it very much :>
Great food...Great location...Great Service❤️ The hummus is delicious...clam pasta is tasty...I'm sure the whole menu is wonderful! Looking foward to my next visit...Also, would like to check at the SD location.
The food was amazing. I seriously enjoyed all of it. The service was amazing too. It was $200 for 4 people to eat and have a drink. I think that is 15% overpriced but overall a great experience.
I love everything about this restaurant, definitely one of my favorites
We were seated right away on the enclosed patio (glass walls about 3” higher than our heads. The food was excellent, we each had a pasta dish, one was pasta made from Sourdough and mine had squid ink. For dessert we shared the heavenly chocolate panna cotta.
They have a great wine list as well.
Perfect for couples or everyday dining.
Pizza was delicious! But pasta was a little chewy and undercooked and I would have loved some fresh cheese on it but the waiter dropped the food off and didn’t offer any. Not sure if maybe they were understaffed but I would have enjoyed my wine glass filled instead I filled my own wine 🍷 Expected more for the price.
The ambience was great, but the food was mediocre. My pasta entree was basically garlic olive oil with some pasta, vegetables, and cheese that I couldn’t taste at all because of the garlic overload. Not in a hurry to go back.
Great food.... very bad reception staff and fair service.
We know things are challenging right now but your staff needs to be trained to be helpful.
The tables are distanced and we felt safe eating there.. that was actually great.
Terrible Service. I spent over $400 for dinner for 4 and it was the biggest waste of money. Save yourself stress and money and don’t go there. I can’t believe in current conditions they have such a bad service. I had to get up twice to ask for manager who never showed up either. Last time I’ll ever go this restaurant in Irvine.
A unique combination of restaurant/wine shop. We ordered a bottle of Paso Robles Cabernet with dinner and liked it so much we purchased two more bottles to take home. At a price LESS than winery direct! One of our favorite go-to OC restaurants.
Great service, food and ambiance. My wife and I enjoy ourselves every time we dine here.
A very nice safe environment to enjoy outdoor dining with excellent menu choices.
