Cucina Market Bistro
Great for a drink and catchup. Food is amazing as well.
Great place for business breakfast meals. A little small but food is very good.
Hey there! Thank you for joining us for your breakfast meeting. We are a bistro so we are small in nature but mighty in flavour!
I love the atmosphere here!
It’s cozy and beautifully presented.
The appies are all great. The tagliatelle, fettuccine and gnocchi are amazing.
The deserts are just the right size for a treat.
We found the staff warm and professional.
This makes us so happy to hear, Janice! Thank you for continuing to join us - we look forward to our next visit!
Some of the very best food and service here!!! 🌷
Thank you so much, Brenda 💓💓
Fantastic restaurant. Wide variety of food selection and able to accommodate almost any request.
This is the place to go if you have food sensitivities, so accommodating!
Thank you, Vanessa! We take great care in the preparation of our menu & dishes. We're so pleased you enjoyed everything and look forward to seeing you again!
Having previously dined at Cucina years prior, I was excited to return while in town. While the ambience and restaurant itself remained classic and comforting, the service and food just got even better. Started with the beef tartare which was delicate but incredibly flavourful. Finished with the carbonara which was rich and delicious. Our waiter was so patient and incredibly polished, never interrupting our conversation or making us feel like we were rushed (we had a three hour lunch...) the wine list was excellent as well, try the Etude Pinot Noir, you won’t be disappointed. Well done Cucina.
This made us smile ear to ear while reading! Thank you for joining us again and we're pleased you enjoyed everything. We hope we will be able to see you again soon!
I keep writing review and I keep going back. I don't know anything new to say except it's great quality food and great atmosphere. It's a downtown fav!
Awe, shucks! Thank you so much for your patronage. We always love our visits!
Met a friend for lunch! Love the menu changes.
Thank you for joining us for our new menu! We hope you were able to pick out your new favourites!
Service and food were very good
This makes us so happy to hear- thank you, Super Dave ;)
Nice atmosphere. Good food, but have had better quality Gnocchi elsewhere. Found the special of the day seafood pasta a little fishy and bland.
Hi there, thank you for your feedback! We regret to hear you didn't fully enjoy your meal with us. We hope we were able to remedy this in the moment for you!
Very nice atmosphere and service was very good. Food choices were excellent .
Thank you, Gunner!
I liked the music and the ambience, the food was tasty too.
Thank you, Jorge!
I made a reservation a week before. When I arrived they first seated me at a table but then moved me back to the waiting area and told me I had to “wait for another table”. I heard the manager/ another staff member tell the lady that seated us say “.... is coming and he gets that table” I was highly upset because I was hosting new business clients and I had to wait 10 minutes for a reserved table. It was embarrassing.

Great dinner with long time friends
We're so glad you enjoyed everything! Thank you for joining us :)
Thank you so much!
We had a reservation for 11:30 and arrived early but still waited almost 2 hours waiter showed up an hour into it and said there was a big table so everything was backed up. Proceeded to finally bring us our lunch (small risotto) and we asked for the bill
Right away as we were 1:45 into a lunch service. He decided to comp the girls next to us that arrived a half hour after us but offered nothing to us. If there is a large table booked at lunch waiters should say that things will be late or they should have a set menu. Very disappointing.

Just love this place ❤️
Awe, shucks. We love you back!
Fish special pricey but excellent. The pasta lamb macroni was less expensive but disappointing. Waitress great and the room perfect. We are seniors so appreciated being set in back at quiet table.
Hello, Rita! Thank you for your feedback regarding your visit with us. We've passed it along to our culinary team so that they may look into this further. We hope there will be another opportunity to see you again!
Good food and service.
The tables are fairly close together because it’s a small space but we didn’t have a problem with it. Food and service were amazing, our only concern was our bill didn’t seem to match prices on the menu. We should have said something but we were a little rushed when paying.
Hi there! Thank you for your feedback. We apologize for the inaccuracy and wish there could have been something we could have done in the moment! We hope to see you again soon!
Overall, the service was adequate but not great. The din in the restaurant made it very hard to hear. I often order the octopus starts. this time it was the smallest portion I have ever received and disappointing. I will go back because I have had very good experiences in the past.
Hey, James! My name is Terralynn and I am the Marketing and Communications Manager for Teatro Group. Thank you for your time and sending in your feedback. Next time you join us, will you allow me to make a reservation for you? You can contact me at Terralynn@TeatroGroup.Ca. Thank you!
Great overall experience but the food was just amazing. Top 3 for best risotto dishes I’ve ever had.
Thank you so much, Craig! We hope we have you back for another bowl of risotto soon!
Amazing food. We did feel rushed slightly to order and eat but the food and ambience definitely made up for it.
Hello, Liska! Thank you for your time and sending in your review. We regret to hear you felt rushed while dining with us, as that would never be our intention. We're glad you enjoyed your meal and hope to have an opportunity to see you again soon!
The food is always phenomenal here, so flavorful and I love the half size pasta dishes so I can have a side caesar salad which is also delicious. The special risotto with carrot puree, kale and bison was outstanding.
Thank you, Kirsty! We're glad you enjoy our menu! We hope we see you again soon.
Great Atmosphere, great food, but a little noisy for a business meeting
Hi, there! We sure are a busy bistro! We'd recommend joining us between 2-4pm if you'd like something a little quieter for a business meeting!
The service here is extra ordinary, attentive without being intrusive. The food quality is extraordinaire. I had the daily risotto - done to perfection, and my friend also finished every last morsel. Yum. I can see why Cucina suggests you make reservations, I would wait in line for this food, but didn't have to.
Thank you, MaryJo! This makes us so happy to read. We're glad you enjoyed everything and we look forward to having you back again soon!
Our server, Katie provided excellent service as usual. Thanks
It's our pleasure! We agree, Katie's great!
I tried food and drink experience menu. Unfortunately the pasta and tiramisu were not good. The pasta was a bit dry and the sauce was bland. Tiramisu wasn’t creamy smooth. Too much powder on top. It was my first visit and disappointing.

Started with beef tartare and shared pasta dishes. Great food. Great value. Will be back.
We're so glad you enjoyed everything! We look forward to seeing you again!
The table was crammed in a corner, the half portions were beyond extremely small, my “special” pasta was very greasy and in my view poorly prepared. Our server was a lovely French Canadian and was the only bright spot in a very overpriced lunch. I won’t be back soon.

Overall good, but my boyfriend’s Carbonara spaghetti was drowning in oil, and my beef conchiglie was good but too much salt, and I eat salty in general. You don’t want to drink all night long because your supper was too salty.
The restaurant is very beautiful, and the service is good.
Like I said, overall good but a bit pricy for what it is: 90$ for 2 pasta plates + 2 glasses of wine
Thank you for your honest feedback, Lily! It's through channels such as these we are able to improve our guest's experiences. We have taken your comments about the carbonara and the beef conchiglie seriously and passed it along to our culinary team. If you wish to discuss this further, I can be reached at Terralynn@TeatroGroup.Ca. Thank you!
Delicious fresh comfort food!
We absolutely loved the entire meal, from charcuterie plate to dessert. The staff were friendly and enthusiastic, the dining area was clean and classy, with the kitchen visible to the diners. The food was 10/10 delicious! I highly recommend the albacore tuna, it is simply delightful.
Thank you so much, John! It pleases us to hear you enjoyed your visit with us. We hope there may be an opportunity to have you join us again soon!
This is seriously the best restaurant in Calgary. Not only is the food amazing but the restaurant vibe is always spectacular and the servers are so friendly and knowledgable.
Awe, shucks! Thank you so much, Logan! It's been our pleasure having you and we look forward to having you again soon!
One of the best restaurants in downtown Calgary, great food!
Thank you, Cliff! We're so pleased to hear this and thank you for joining us!
The food was amazing and the service was wonderful. Because of cold weather there were many cancellations so the noise level was low. It was certainly worth braving the cold for the excellent food.
Thank you for joining us and braving the cold, Elaine! We hope we can see you again soon!
My fav breakfast spot!
Thanks a brunch ;)
The food was really good as always. However we were seated at a table right beside a door that the employees used to get their jackets. When they opened the door all you could smell was bathroom freshener. It was really terrible. We tried to get our server to our table to move us and could not track him down so we just finally got up and moved to another table by the window so we didn't have to smell that awful smell. This door should be blocked off to staff when it is the lunch hour.
Next our server did not know much about the drinks we requested so he had to send over the bartender.
In the end the overall experience was okay.

I have been here multiple times and always enjoyed my meal. This is the first time I was very disappointed. I ordered the market fish special of the day. The fish skin was slimy and undercooked. Not crispy at all like it should be. It was gross actually. My meal came with baby potatoes and cauliflower mash. I literally had 3 halves of baby potatoes on my plate. What grown adult only eats 3 halves of a baby potato. Then the $52 bill came for a glass of wine and my very very disappointing meal.
