Knowledgeable wait staff expertly depicted what would come our way. The food was delicious! Great wine service.
The parpadelle was not as delicate as I recall from previous visits. Rather, it was a thicker variation. Seems like the pasta was overworked or otherwise not made properly. Props for serving fresh pasta, I just wish the execution was better. The tricalore salad was underwhelming. My partner had the burger, which was good but the fries could have been better. My cousin probably had the best dish of the night which was rigatoni, I think. Drinks and wine were excellent.
Cucina is so pretty and fun.The menu choices are a bit limited and the specials few, but everything is delicious. It feels special to dine here. The noise level is always high enough to make conversation difficult to impossible, so keep that in mind.
Food was very very disappointing. I dont understand all the good reviews. We got the most popular dishes ( pasta with some egg and lamb pizza and appetizer according to the server and yelp reviews) but it was nothing special. In fact it was really just mehhhh. Never coming back..
Delicious menu offerings, creative cocktails mixes and fine wine selections are so good and to top it off, the service is exceptional. Service is attentive without being intrusive. Kevin is their top server who always provides excellent dining and wine recommendations. With fears of the COVID-19 pandemic possibly forcing closure of restaurants, we had the urge to visit our favorite place to enjoy a wonderful dinner. Hoping to be able to dine at CUCINA urbana again soon.
Buen lugar, buen vino y buena comida

The food here is phenomenal and The service provided by Lynn and Mario was exceptional. They have a vast wine selection. We had the chicken pate and octopus starters, they are both a favorite. For our entrees we had the steak and the short rib pasta. You can’t go wrong with either. If you’re looking for a nice evening out full of delicious food and wine you will not be disappointed.
Great as always. We always enjoy the chopped salad and the soup of the day was excellent.
Food was very good. We went a bit early for dinner so the place wasn’t “hopping” yet, but there was a large group near us who were pretty loud. It wasn’t terrible, but noticeable.
Definitely will go back when we are in the neighborhood again.
