A delight! Randomly ended up here, everything was delicious, appiez drinks and mains. Octopus was awesome. Sable fish was perfectly done. Cheers to whoever was cheifing thy night. Waiter showed pure class. A bit pricey but worth it, and believe me I don’t say it often. My gf blogs and she couldn’t stop praising this spot
Every time I go here it's a great experience. This quality is why I keep coming back!
Cucina is a gem. It warmly evokes an authentic Italian bistro kitchen. A place you'd easily see a pair of friends enjoying charcuterie and a super Tuscan at one table; and a family of eight with kids at another. Of their many gifts to the patron, perhaps their most generous and brilliantly tactical is their Happy Hour [on Friday] that allows you to order any wine at a considerable discount, which, paired with their culinary devotion, vaults Cucina to the top of me and my friends' list for Friday post-work gatherings. Their decision to make their wine list accessible for those few hours is so appreciated—and one that shames most ever other dining room they easily compete against within the core. So, the maths are simple: Sensationally prepared food with an unmatched and compelling incentive to order a fine wine bottle… or a few.
Cucina offers consistently high quality food with seasonal specials. Nice ambience for a business breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Half sizes available on numerous dishes.
The food was amazing slow for 11:45. We didn’t get our food till 12:45pm. Really disappointed when previous visits have been great.
Stopped in here before a friends event downtown with some friends. Was a perfect spot for some good food and drinks prior. Would certainly come again!
Great wine, I loved my dish (the sablefish) wish we would have had time to stay for dessert! next time :)
Ordered the fish special - Pickerel - for lunch yesterday. However, noticed that my fish fillet was about half the size as my guest's. (I had a thin tail cut, while my guest had a nice central piece, fully double the volume). It was a shame because, for the price, I felt I only had a 'teaser' taste of what was delicious fish. Also, our server was busy and after repeated attempts to get his attention, the bartender stepped up to take our repeat drink order as well as the dessert order, for which we were grateful.
The food was great but our server practically ghosted us. It took over 10 minutes to get each drink, and he just kept disappearing for 10-15 minutes at a time, which we found odd as the restaurant is not very big.
Came here for a friendly business lunch and it was lovely. Great food - I had the Ahi Tuna and my guest had the Salmon. Great decor. Recommended for sure.
Great fun ambiance, food is very good and nice menu choices. Service is professional, hard to go wrong!
Fresh and tasty food, great service... what else do you need?!
The service and atmosphere here may well have been the best part of the dining experience but unfortunately the food (this included 2 gnocchi dishes, a chicken dish and a pasta dish) was just okay... perhaps our expectations were too high. The cost could be considered at par with other restaurants of this type but when spending approximately $150 per couple it did seem rather small of the restaurant to charge a $1.00 per glass of tap water.
My husband and I had a wonderful experience! Our server was very helpful and attentive, and our food was fantastic! We were just traveling through the area, but if we are ever back we will definitely eat at Cucina again!
Tasty food, the trout special was incredible, sad I ordered something else!
Outstanding food & service.
I've never been disappointed and have gone for both business lunches as well as for personal.
Food was delicious , the place is very cute setting and the attention was great
Only our 2nd time here as we don’t live in Calgary. AMAZING FOOD - from the salad to pasta to dessert. Also amazing service 👍🏼 highly recommend!!
Excellent atmosphere and dining experience. I would highly recommend Cucina for anyone needing a date night. Staff is very friendly and they all said bye and thank you on the way out. Prices were decent compared to other places. I would definitely go back.
Cheers and thank you.
Excellent food, the server was super sweet. I ordered the rigatoni with chorizo and pulled chicken. Excellent choice so delicious. However, while eating I pulled a small chicken bone from my mouth. Showed the server, and it was laughed off. I don't think I should have to point out how serious and dangerous it could have been. I let it go because I was fine. Future note if that happens again don't laugh it off, point it out to the manager. Have the manager speak to the customer. You are an excellent restaurant but don't rest on your laurels.
The food is consistently good and the service friendly. The restaurant is fairly small so it has a nice atmosphere of not being a big crowded place. It's not too noisy so it's easy to have a conversation at normal speaking volume.
Great food as always
The food was excellent. We were there early, but the front of the restaurant was sold out so there was limited seating and it was ok, but not the vibe that we were looking for. The sold out crowd took precedence and we were second class citizens. Because it's so small, there were only a few places to sit and they turned away a number of patrons. Doesn't seem like a good business model. Good food for sure, but the rest of the experience was not great. Good thing I had good company.
My wife and I decided for a date night on Saturday evening. We choose Cucina Market as neither of us had been there before. The atmosphere was splendid. Our servers were excellent as they explained specials and all menu items with ease. They accommodated our special orders with no questions. The special cocktails were amazing and the Bella Rosa is worth having another. We would recommend this place anytime. The changed daily risotto was excellent.
Sitting on patio was great as pretty noisy inside
Great food and service. A bit noisy for a business lunch, but I would definitely come back here with a group for a casual get-together.
Server was very knowledgeable on wines and made some great recommendations. Food was superb.
Very quick and nice. Slightly more expensive then other pasta dishes in Calgary
Always enjoy breakfast meetings at Cucina
Good food, clean restaurant, central location and very good service
Good food. Friendly service. Affordable. The concept is quite modern and the atmosphere was enjoyable.
Shared dishes with two other friends: the beets, gnocchi and sablefish were all really delicious. We also had the Arctic Char which was one of the specials but it was our least favorite. Wine and cocktail drink list was great and so was the service. Overall would recommend!
Very well prepared tasty food with excellent service, a few unusual offerings, great seafood pasta.
The service was excellent. Our server kept our sparkling water glasses filled and was attentive to any of our needs. The food was plated nicely and was very tasty. Would recommend to others.
I can't come here without having the beef tartare. I have never had a better one! We were very well-looked after by the staff and had a lovely lunch.
Excellent experience. Will definitely be going again!
The food here is great but the service is horrible. We waited 45 mins to get a drink. It took 20 mins to get service after being seated (other than water) and then another 20 mins to get our drinks. It makes happy hour impossible to enjoy. The server is super sweet but no clue what he’s doing. We were going to stay for dinner but left after our drinks and a quick appie.
Food here is very, very salty. I ordered pasta and chicken. I notified the waitress and she did give a small discount to the meal. Octopus appetizer was good.
Always have had excellent food quality and service at Cucina. A favorite place to have business breakfast meetings. The Open Table reservation system is outstanding.
