CUCINA enoteca - Newport Beach
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.
Our waitress was the sweetest and brought us celebratory champagne for our recent engagement! Food was excellent as always and the ambiance was perfect!
The wait service was poor. Very disappointed as my guests just flew in from Chicago and they were starving and tired.
We went before the dinner rush on Friday. Ordered the Short Rib pappardelle. It was tasty but I could tell it was reheated or microwaved.
The burger was good but very smoky.
Waitress was nice but not around after food was delivered. I’m sure it would have been better when busy.
I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. It is nice time even for having dinner with my boss. I definitely would return to try more dishes.
I loved it! I went with all of my girlfriends and we all ordered a different dish. Each one was spectacular! The wait staff was lovely. Attentive and knowledgeable, offering great suggestions. One of my new favorite places!
Food and atmosphere were amazing. I would highly recommend this to anyone...Thank you.
Our reservation was a little later in the night. Our server rushed us through the entire experience. She was not attentive at all as she was more worried about doing her side work. She was very eager to sell wine. At the end of the night, she told us, “thank you for helping me meet my wine sales quota.” Will not be returning
One of my neighborhood places to go. Totally disappointed this time. Food wasn’t hot. All came out together. Took way to long. The noise level was off the charts. Couldn’t hear the ppl sitting at my table.
Ambience was a tad loud for where we were sitting, amongst other two seaters. Pizza was burnt a bit at the bottom, which I didn't like but tolerated. Main thing was that our squid ink pasta dish contained several empty mussel shells. Friendly hosts and server, but water wasn't refilled.
Excellent food and exceptional service. We went during an off hour, so noise was low. I would highly recommend!!
Great food and service with awesome value. Great location for movies and dinner as all the theatres are within the Fashion Island complex
Excellent service! great food! Nice environment! no wait.
Misha, our server, was amazing. She was attentive, informative and entertaining.
This restaurant has a beautiful outdoor area, and our server, a gal from Kentucky, was attentive and gave excellent recommendations.
The restaurant is charming, especially the patio. My friend and I had a leisurely two hour lunch on the patio. We weren't rushed at all. Our server was great. She was able to take care of our needs quickly while taking efficient care of other diners as well. We'll be back!
Love this restaurant. The outdoor dining is really nice too and they are dog friendly. Great food and service.
Very accommodating. From the entrance to exit. Great staff great food and beautiful ambience
Great place to take out of town visitors! Perfect service! Excellent menu and food!
Like the decor and vibe of this place. Enjoyed outdoor seating, had good service, pizza, and wine. But our main pasta entrees lacked the flavor we expected based on other yelp reviews.
Everything was great!
I love this place! Great vibe...great location in Fashion Island...perfect place to meet friends for lunch/dinner.
The restaurant is beautiful. We like to have our family birthday party celebrations on the patio here . It’s just beautiful ! I thought it was a bit ridiculous they wanted to charge us $2.50 per person to slice a birthday cake . Obviously we passed and did it ourselves. And please bring back yummy hummus truffle appetizer.
Delicious food, never disappoints when we eat there. Great service, super friendly staff. The only downside was that even though we made a reservation through open table we still had to wait 15 minutes to be seated. Other than that everything was great.
The service was excellent
We liked the chicken salad and would like to have it return to the menu.
Worst service we've had in a long time. Server took a half hour to take our order, and when we asked for things, she never brought them.
