Food and service are still good
Great value happy hour deals! Excellent service food and wine
Great rigatoni with lemon ricotta. Sat at the bar, which was empty and had safety barriers every couple of seats. Bartenders very attentive.
A European experience. No rushing, like in France or in Italy!! Every person on staff is gracious and patient. THE FOOD IS OUTSTANDING!
The greens with salmon were a disappointment. The greens were so tough and chewy it was not possible to eat them. My guest had the chopped salad which was just OK.
The service was medium. The price for the food and service was high.
the best bucatini ive ever had...service is also excellent
Best happy hour. Excellent service.
Everything was exceptional!
Easter brunch - delicious & great atmosphere!
The service was excellent and the everyone was very nice. I just wish they had more of a seafood selection. I love shrimp and scallops so I tried the seafood pasta but I’m not crazy about the clams, mussels and calamari.
Food was just right for my taste, and the portion size was perfect too, not too big, not too small. The staff members were all nice and attentive and made sure all our needs were met. I really liked their roasted brussels sprouts which I ordered as as an appetizer. I went there with my boyfriend to celebrate our birthdays, and they surprised us with delicious panna cottas after our meal. Great service, great ambience, don't have anything to complain about.
Disappointed this past visit. Ordered the cheese plate as our appetizer and, in the past we were offered a selection. This time selection fixed forgot to double whether we were charged. Will most likely not return.
The food is good, but choices are limited. The outside patio is very, very noisy.
Great food (authentic Italian), drinks and ambiance! Not easy to find all three in a restaurant! Will surely return! Grazie!
Great food and very reasonable corkage fee.
The service was amazing
It was ok. I loved the venue outside - nicely decorated. The food was overpriced for the ok quality. For that price tag the consumer deserves better. The only wow was the chocolate panacotta once you broke thru the day old skin on top.
Everything was great! I was there with four friends. Most of our food was fantastic, however my husband’s pasta was under cooked. We would still come back again.
Disappointing evening. Outdoor dining well set up, spaced, heaters. Menu limited; wife is sensitive to garlic, most items made with, initially told a pasta dish was without. Our server came back later noting she was sandbagged, and the pasta dish had garlic. Very few options, which would have meant further wait. Margherita pizza was good; wine selection very slim, considering it is an enoteca. Shop and buy the bottle is their motto I guess - wine by the glass limited.
Instead of an enchanted evening eating outdoors, we were left with a decent pizza and two glasses of mediocre wine. :(
Great place to eat for a date, or family. There was something on the menu for even my picky 6 year old daughter. Highly recommend the giant meatball as a starter!!
Our waitress was outstanding
I had reserved an outdoor table but they said this was not available despite there being lots of unoccupied tables and the wait would be 25 minutes. Ambience inside was not good.
Great happy hour. Food came on time and hot.
Cucina Enoteca is one of our favorites restaurants in Orange County, we always go there for some special occasions or just to celebrate.
Try to get an outdoor table near the fireplace, it is always so cozy and the decor just fabulous. The food taste great - I had the see bass which was 5 star. my husband had the fettuccini which tasted great but the portions are very small. We had the sharing platter for $24 as an appetizer which stated artisan bread and crackers and had 2 measly bread on the board. I suggest to get a sarge each.
Still love the place and definitely will come back.
Very good food. Nice ambiance.Our waiter never came back after and refilled the water bottle. He never offered coffee. I sat facing outward so I could not see him at a distance. I kept want more water. We sat and talked for a little while after dinner. We never saw waiter again. Water jug was never refilled the entire dinner. There were five people.
The appetizers are perfect for sharing- the meatball and squash were delicious! The salad is big and can be shared but add chicken to make it even better. The short rib pasta is my fave since the flavors are so good! Ok the Panne cotta dessert is the best I’ve had and is smooth and the chocolate is not too sweet.
I like this restaurant. I come here for the Pate. It's delicious. The Sangria is great also. Love to come here on a Sunday and then shop after.
Delicious food. Hostesses were very sweet and accommodating.
Ordered 1 appetizer and 2 mains along with 2 drinks. It took an hour for our appetizer to come out. It took 30 min for our waiter to get us drinks after sitting us down. Service was horrible. What made it even worse was the resturant was not busy at all. 2 people sitting inside and 3 groups of 2-4 sitting outside. Our server was a heavier set man with a cloth face mask that barley covers his face.
Love the restaurant and and glad they are reopened.
Food was good, but slowest service EVER!! Very disappointed.
Always a good experience. We love it. Dine here frequently.
It was so nice to go out for dinner! The new foccacia bread and the artichoke and spinach triangles with the limoncello butter sauce was fabulous!
The heated outdoor patio was very inviting and except for the noisy group of five at the table next to us, the experience was very enjoyable
Celebrating a birthday. Great fast service. We were seated on the covered patio and prepared for a chilly environment but the tenting and heaters kept us cozy warm. LOVE this restaurant! Meatball appetizer fabulous!
Love the food, ambience and customer service!
We always love coming to Cucina. Great atmosphere, wonderful service, amazing food & they accommodate food allergies! Perfect spot for our little family.
Due to Covid, the table was on the sidewalk, so not the best ambiance, but the food servers went overboard to provide the best service. The food, as always, was outstanding.
Service was awful. Waitress never came to check on us. When we sat down, we sat there for 30 mins before she came by and said “you good?” And we said well we’d like to order. They brought our entrees before we even got our appetizers. As regulars, it was extremely disappointing service for my birthday.
The burrata salad was too pretty eat! Our meal was excellent and our server was friendly and professional.
