CUCINA enoteca - Newport Beach
took a friend and his wife for Birthday dinner. Had a great table out by the fireplace, that might have been the problem. Server was very slow bringing everything, drinks 15 minutes, appetizers arrived before our drinks arrived. Super slow on taking our order. Had to ask for water refill, Parmigan Cheese and anything else we wanted had to search for our waiter. Been to this restaurant many times my friend Chris was the GM, never had these issues before. By the way it was a Sunday night not busy at all.
The food, ambience and service was exceptional!!!! We will make this a favorite
Service and food was awesome. I was on a date and was a perfect spot. Thx!!
Very nice and comfortable spot
Very decent selection of food and it was tasty
Service was very good
Will be coming back!!
Nice place, nice food, everything was perfect
It’s quite expensive but we like the food. It’s a good place for special event.
Went for Valentine's Day/Birthday with daughter for lunch. Service was good but not fantastic. Food was nice. Ambiance was ok. Would like to go back and see how dinner is.
Once again, a disappointing experience eating at Cucina Enoteca. Chicken and Polenta dish, prepared long in advance was inedible at a high price.
Brunch menu was not extensive, but the main bases were covered and entrees were creative and tasty. Service was A+. Nicely curated wine selection encourages exploration.
Reservations were for 7:30PM. We were not seated until 8:10PM. The waiting area was packed with customers just like us. It appeared the entire restaurant was running way behind schedule.
LOVE love the food and the teas! Great ambiance and amazing waiter, she was awesome!
We came in at 9:30 with a reservation, and it was pretty clear that they were shutting down. We split a pear and Gorgonzola pizza, which sounded like it was going to be good, and might have been, if it hadn’t been so burned. Felt like they were in a rush to get us out. Maybe if they don’t want people to show up at 9:30 they shouldn’t offer reservations at that time. Or just tell us when we come in, that it’s too late. Would be more fair than providing bad food.
Only bad thing is there were several dogs in patio dining area at 630pm dinner time. Why? Disgusting and I like dogs. Don’t allow that.
Usually a perfect place. Unfortunately they put us outside even though I reserved inside and the smokers outside the patio door ruined it. I will try afain
Fabulous experience. Great vibe, excellent service , great selection, generous portions , and Deelish!!
Can’t wait to go back!
Amazing food, great service, wonderful atmosphere. Can't wait to come back.
I would recommend for the atmosphere, decor and service. The price is too high and food need to be a bit more inspired.
Good meal, great service. Place was busy but and we were there during restaurant week, the menu was wonderful and at a great price.
Restaurant looks nice and that’s all.Food not good at all.
Cucina Enoteca Newport Beach was very good. The service and food was very good. However, the noise level was very high making it hard to talk. We were seated in the main dining room.
Great for Pizza and a glass of wine on the patio! Great service, fun atmosphere and pear and Gorgonzola Pizza is my favorite.
Great experience, had the $40 three course and it was great food.
Thank you for handling our large group and allowing us to add a couple people to our table at the last minute. Great service, delicious food and beautiful decor.
Thank you Melissa. It was a pleasure having you and your group with us the other night. We hope to see you back soon!
Great food and service. We like coming for a late lunch when it's not as busy. One of our regulars and we will return.
outstanding chicken dishes and salad.. perfect spot to have dinner before a movie
Great meal selections, wine and service! Comfortable for table of 7 for a birthday.
The food was amazing, and the server was both attentive and helpful. Definitely would recommend and go again. Also their Tiramisu is to die for.
we had a nice new year's eve dinner. the food was very good. we enjoyed the octopus and beet salad most. octopus was cooked perfectly. the beet salad combined with the persimmon was perfect. our waitress was attentive and service was great in general. definitely, would come back.
NYE! Great time, great food.
We were very well taken care of by the staff. They gave us the space to have an incredible dining experience.
We speak Spanish and we’re there with small children sitting next to kitchen so we overheard the kitchen staff using very foul language in Spanish.
Loved it all, Dmily was an outstanding server.
Our party of 7 thoroughly enjoyed the food and ambience.
Amazing food and vegan options!
Our server was phenomenal and informative. He really enhanced our experience. Food was also outstanding and flavorful
I have been a fan and choose you a lot but it was not a satisfactory experience Friday. Our pizza arrived with the crust completely burnt it was black but we ate the pizza and just left the burnt part when the manager walking around asked how it was we pointed the pizza out and her response " I will tell the chef" now tell me what kind of response is that the chef knew it came from the kitchen and we were the customers eating around something burnt so her response was foolish and certainly not helpful.
Love lacieta as our server
Front desk was also great
Great place to bring family and friends. Kids get to make their own pizza. Always yummy.
Great food and waitress! It was busy, so a bit noisy, but quiet down around 8:30
