Welcome to CUCINA urbana, a casual Italian American Neighborhood Kitchen and Wine Shop located in the heart of Bankers Hill. The menu highlights the cuisines of various Italian regions with a distinct California ‘farm to table’ flair for which the Urban Kitchen Group has become known. Chef Joe Magnanelli is excited to share his Italian heritage and create dishes that are fresh, simple and seasonal. Items include: antipasti, artisan pizza, pasta and piatti. Enjoy wine by the glass or visit the wine shop and select a bottle from over 100 selections at retail price ($9 corkage fee applies). The space features contemporary elements and vintage artifacts creating the feel of a modern Italian kitchen combined with the history and comfort of an old rustic country farmhouse.

The food is delicious to say the least. However, the portion is incredibly small. I walked in hungry and I walked out hungry.

We went here for a late Valentine’s dinner and the server was so pleasant and accommodating since I have multiple food allergies; everyone in our group
Enjoyed their dishes; and the non alcoholic drinks were great too; great vibe and great service

Lovely dinner! Busy Valentine’s day, but staff did not miss a beat! Goat cheese vasi was a wonderful start. Recommend both the tagliatelle and the snapper. Baked Alaska with pistachio gelato and blackberry was a nice special surprise!

Went before the theater and the traffic was bad, we were late, they were nice, were able to sit us right away, facilitate the ordering and serve the great food and got us to the theater on time. Service was professional, personal and yet was fast. Well done, Cucina Urbana!
