CUCINA enoteca - Newport Beach
It was my granddaughters 1st birthday. I called to say we were running 15 minutes late. We show up. Plenty of open tables in the garden YeT they make us wait. This happens all the time but ok. We get to the table and food comes out all timed wrong. I come all the time yet they charged me a cake fee. Was so upset.
Service, ambiance and food all outstanding. Wine choices also great. Fun, tasty meal.
A quaint elegant decoration, service was great for a group of us. We all had a wonderful lunch with family style serving for pasta, pizza and salad. Highly recommended!!
The waiter was overwhelmed with the large parties around us. Was not very attentive to our party.
One of our favorite restaurants. This was the first time we brought the family who loved it.
Loved the food and the restaurant is in a good location.
Great service and table outside
I was meeting up with some friends and one of us had a birthday . So since I was the only local , the job of picking a restaurant was entrusted (read as forced ) to me :) .
I had the Charred Octopus at Cucina a week ago and it was still fresh in my mind. So the decision was easy. The food was amazing as expected. We were probably the last customers to enter the restaurant for the night and stayed a little bit over the closing time but at no point in time did we feel that we had to rush. A round of applause goes to Misha , the member of staff who was supporting us during the evening. She was truly helpful.
Highly recommended this and all other Cucina restaurants .
There was a issue with my meal and they ended up taking it off the tab. That is great service. I will definitely come back!!
Food and service is always incredible. Thanks as always!
Great food & service. Celebrated a casual birthday dinner with friends & was met with excellent service from our server Sean. Very knowledgeable & helped us pick rich, wonderful food. Highly recommend! 10/10 overall experience.
I've already recommended to various people. Enjoyed the experience, food and service. We sampled various dishes,the parmesan fries the chopped salad and Margherita pizza and all were very very good. There non-alcoholic teas were very tasty and refreshing as well.
Teresa is always fantastic!
Excellent dining location. Staff is very attentive, professional and friendly. Food is exceptional. Always a great dining experience.
Fantastic and friendly. I love this place! The squash blossoms are absolutely amazing. The seafood dish my husband enjoyed was top notch. Dining was very enjoyable even with my four young children. The staff was extremely friendly but professional. Thank you!
Such a perfect, intimate birthday dinner with my boyfriend.
We loved this place. Our waitress was great, she recommended a wine for us that was fabulous. The food was fresh and delicious. The service timing of bringing out our appetizers, to our food was perfect. We really enjoyed ourselves, and the tiramisu was to die for!
The waitress never came out to ask if we were ok, we were the ones calling her. Had a pile of plates on the table she didn’t even bother to pick up until we paid and getting up to go.
We went for our wedding anniversary. The pizza was delicious, but the salad came undressed (by accident), they were out of my favorite mussels (by 6pm), and they didn't do anything to commemorate our anniversary.
I would give it another try because the food is good (especially the small plates) but our service was sub-par. Our waiter was rude and I felt rushed even though it was a Tuesday night at 7pm - the place was not busy so not sure what that was about.
Loved food and cozy outdoor patio wonderful experience with my family.
Great spot for meeting grandparents for Sunday brunch. Service is always great, fun atmosphere, great wine menu and value.
Amazing food in a nice setup. The cups had a bad smell though. Everything else was great
Love this place. The charred octopus and stuffed zucchini blossom appetizers are my favorite, and all the pizzas and pastas are great, too. Service was excellent, we will go back anytime.
Beautiful space, creative dishes
Definitely will come back! Good for celebrating birthdays, anniversary!
The best part about Cucina Enoteca? Space between tables. As a result, we were there on a Saturday evening and the noise was manageable, not deafening. So appreciated. Good food, excellent service. Look forward to returning.
Had a great graduation lunch for our daughter. Our server Asa was GREAT. He was attentive, never rushed us and took care of a mistake I made when ordering. They put us in the sun room area which was great as it felt like a private dining space.
We arrived early for dinner and had no less than four waiters/waitresses! Dinner was great, but a little more consistency in wait staff would have made it a perfect evening.
Delicious! Food looks and tastes amazing. Have a great wine list.
My first date with my new boyfriend.
A favorite for locals and visitors alike.
The environment can’t be beat. Sunday brunch on a warm day, on a large beautiful shaded porch with high end modern cottage feel. Burrata and tomato was delicious. Not a fan of the breakfast pizza.
Wonderful food and service as always. It’s a must every time we come to Newport!!
Although we weren't able to sit on the patio because of a private party, we enjoyed our experience. Our waitress was excellent as was the food!!! We visit this restaurant often and have suggested it to our friends.
Food was not as good as previous visits. Meatballs were bland. The burrata was ok, but they had better options on earlier menus.
Wine choices were excellent. Will consider but not certain will return when looking for Italian food
Had a wonderful experience celebrating my husbands birthday. The food was amazing and the service above expectation! Jennifer was outstanding! We will definitely be back soon!
We were in for a business lunch. The chopped salad was excellent as was the service.
