Food was amazing! From the Pizza to the Pasta -top notch!
Our waiter, Luke, was very good. He knew his wines, was very personable and helpful.
Great service! Staff was especially attentive to everyone in our party needs. Food was good served on time so it was hot. Can’t go wrong with this place
Food was disappointing
Pasta little taste
Great ambiance. Yummy food especially the burrata was delish! Awesome sunset view. Definitely will go back more often.
Wonderful staff. Everything was amazing. We ordered 8 items including squid ink pasta, squash blossoms, pizza, branzino and polenta. We can’t wait to go back.
Fantastic brunch with group of 10! Excellent waitress, Meghan!
Polenta with Raghu sauce is wonderful! The service staff was great. Lovely evening
Awesome as always! Great food, attentive service, prompt delivery!
All was excellent but needs a bigger selection on main dishes.
The noise level was nearly unbearable and made the rest irrelevant.
I'm historically a fan of Ce and I'm guessing my recent experiences there are reflective of the times we are in - most significantly the labor shortage in food service.
The best part of Ce is and has always been their wine selection - broad range of bottles at very reasonable restaurant prices. Their by-the-glass is also pretty good both in value and offerings. If you're into good wine with good food nice setting...hard to beat Ce.
The food, while not competing for a Michelin star, is an entirely different league that most multiple-location restaurants. It would be an insult to compare them to the Cheesecake Factory or CPK. And I think they are meaningfully better than Houstons, North, etc.
Their short-rib pasta is my go-to and the best thing on the menu, though the squash blossoms are often excellent and the focaccia is quite good. Kid's pasta with marinara is also well-received by the young ones.
The interior is welcoming and handsome and creates a very enjoyable setting.
My recent less-than-stellar experiences there are mainly service and atmosphere related. Servers here (and in many places!) definitely have an air of being "over it." And it's hard to blame them (COVID has been rough on the whole industry). I appreciated the work to create outdoor seating, but it's definitely LOUD (very hard to hear even at our small table).
The menu changes very little, so if one is seeking major creativity, they'll need to look to more chef-driven menus. But Ce is reliable and definitely a cut above its peers.
If you're craving something on the Ce menu, want a reasonably priced dinner out with good food and wine that is significantly more interesting than most places, I think Ce is head and shoulders above the other comparable option. (And thanks to food service staff who is trying to hang in there, I know it's not easy!)
Very good atmosphere and excellent food and service!!
The food and ambiance are good here. Like most restaurants these days, I think they are slightly under staffed. No fault of the server, but everything is a little slower now.
Food and service was fantastic! It made our birthday celebration a real treat.
Our server, Michelle, was attentive and efficient and made our experience even better.
loved the meal and the ambiance but it was loud - would recommend eating on their indoor side room - pretty and quiet. Food was amazing - shot rib with pasta so flavorful and my chicken was huge and delicious with polenta - will eat there again,
The Italian chopped salad was delicious. The new chairs were stylish but uncomfortable.
Lovely patio. Delicious food. Service could have been better.
Great food and service
Very good food however way too noisy, we could not even talk to each other
Great service from our waiter! Inside dining was loud. But the food was excellent.
A little loud but that was just a minor issue!
We were seated on the patio as we requested to celebrate a casual birthday lunch. We really enjoyed the food and received outstanding service. The hummus and charcuterie plates had a wonderful selection of veggies and meats and the pasta bolonese and polenta were also delicious. The tiramisu was also scrumptious. We will definitely return to Cucina Enoteca in Newport Beach.
Enjoyed an excellent dinner. Terrific and attentive server and delicious food. Best in Newport Beach.
food is always great! tried the corn agnolotti and it was sooo yummy. wish they didn't run out of polenta.
Had such a wonderful birthday dinner here! Our server Emily was awesome!
Im very dessapoinment with the waiter Luke... bad experience .
Never again visit this restaurant 👎🏼
Food was ok. Hostess friendly. Waiter a bit slow.
Always fabulous… love introducing people or bringing them back… love the food… decor… friendly helpful help xoxoxo thank u
We dined here last year during the Thanksgiving week and enjoyed our meals then.
Our dinner did not disappoint this time. We ordered two family size dishes—an arugula salad and the short rib tagliatelle. Both dishes were generous and excellently prepared. They were so delicious that we polished them off.
Better experience on past visit. Pizza and meatball not great this time. Very slow to get wine to our table
Terrific food and excellent, unrushed service! Great venue!
Always a great time at Enoteca. Good food, service and always satisfied!
It's good, but not fantastic. The waiter we had this time was also ok, not great.
but, it is local, and a nice place to go, for covid.
Good food , good ambiance, great service, don’t push mask mandate !
Felt like normal and got to enjoy my time there.
It’s our kids’ absolute favorite restaurant, luckily we love it too. Service is always friendly and great and the food is delicious. We have a few favorites but always try something new too!
The ambience, the food and the server were amazing
Great food and service!
Very nice waitperson
