There was little about this meal that seemed worthwhile or refined, other than perhaps the bread served at the outset. The caccio e pepe was gloppy, the pork chop was on the tough and under-flavored side; the tiramisu was tasteless.

And then there was the television over the bar, which, when the football concluded was replaced by some sort of bloody surgical procedure. Not pleasant or conducive to dining.

Great restaurant...love the food and service is amazing! But, the hostess needs an attitude change! And cocktails are just fair.

We needed to meet old friends who were in town for one night. I wanted to try something new and AR Cucina has been on my list for a while. It turned out to be the perfect spot - nice ambiance, great food, drinks, wine and not too pricey. We all shared several appetizers, pizza, a few pastas, lasagna and dessert and everyone loved it all!

i am a long term client of Akasha and this was my first time at AR cucina. I was quite disappoinrted. I had a great initial impression of Akasha but felt over the years it deteriorated quite a lot. I had hoped AR may represent a newly invigorated version of the older, slightly tired akasha but i am afraid i felt it didnt live up to my expectation. service was poor, food wasnt great and im not in a hurry to gop back!
Nice tira misu though!!

It was over 15 minutes from the time we were seated until we were acknowledged by the wait staff. However, this was soon remedied by a complimentary round of cocktails which were expertly made and delicious. The food was very good and quick to arrive. A rocky beginning but the staff made amends and the chopped salad excellent.

I’ll be back again for the Cacio e Pepe. Butter pasta with pepper sounds so simple yet the ingredients are high quality and fresh so it tastes beyond belief amazing. Nice atmosphere for an easy date night or catch up with friends.

Always pretty good, the staff should learn the menus on a more intimate level. Ex. How they make the gnocchi.
