Great find! BYO too! Food was good and big portions, friendly staff. it is pretty loud when the dining room got full, but I will go back.
Great BYOB, we are here about once a month and are never disappointed. Jose is the man, great server, great person!! See you again soon!!
The food at Cucina 355 was very good. The young waitress was excellent, very attentive. The noise, however, was the worst I ever experienced in a restaurant. There were three large groups that were screaming across the table at each other. I had to touch my girlfriends arm to get her attention if I wanted to talk to her. Then, I had to scream at her. They need to install some sort of noise absorbing material in the dining room. I'll have to think long and hard to decide if I will ever go back.
There’s no pork or steak entries offered on the menu.
Great Little atmosphere !
Great place for takeout also!!
Riceballs , Giancarelli salad, Pene Arrabiata!
Food was amazing as well as our server Jose. We will definitely be coming back again
Great food. Great ambiance. Great service.
Will definitely come back
Great food!! The chicken parm with vodka sauce is unbelievable. Very large portions. Will definitely be returning!!
My friends and I have been here a few times for our birthday celebrations. However, this last time the gnats were a bit much. We were told that it was because of our wine but another table chimed in and said they have them by them and they do not have wine. Our server (who probably thought we were crazy) was great and he moved us and then we moved again into the pizza area. We still saw them and swatted them away but they weren’t as bad. We love the place but the gnats need to get under control as it very hard to have a conversation let alone enjoy a good meal with them flying around. I hope this helps!!!
I love this place -- people who work here clearly ENJOY their jobs and go out of their way to treat you like family. Cucina has become my kids' favorite restaurant (that's saying a lot!). The menu is wonderful, with a mix of traditional Italian standbys as well as imaginative creations to delight any palate. They have far more vegetarian options than other Italian restaurants in the area as well (rice balls without meat? YES and it's one of their best sellers!). Food is fresh and tasty, value is terrific, service is superb. Come hungry and bring your favorite wine!
Food was good and plentiful, the mini rice balls were really good and not so mini, the fried raviolis were not what I expected though they were good, it looked like an entree coming out rather than a starter. There is a wall that separates the dining room from the take out side, which had six tables. There was a big party in the dining room that was a little loud so we asked to sit away from them and they accommodated us no problem. The food value is on point. Would come back here again.
Restaurant is conveniently located. Food, ambiance and service was excellent! It’s a BYOB which makes it even nicer. Highly recommended!
Very good food accompanied by great service. The rice balls, stuffed mushroom and calamari were great appetizers. The vodka parm was so good, and there was enough that I took some home and it was an entire extra meal for me. And the cheesecake was amazing. Seriously can't go wrong with all the incredible options on the menu. And the wait staff was so friendly and accommodating.
We were seated right away. Our server was very nice and knowledgeable. There was an occasion where we had to ask for some things but were addressed in a reasonable amount of time. Can you include your pizza options on the regular menu as well? I had reviewed at the menu online, but the menu we were presented with did not have the pizza options. As we left the restaurant, we noticed that the opposite side is where you could order pizza but would be nice option to have printed on the regular menu as well. The only negative comment would be that my friend's daughter's Caesar salad that she ordered was heavily loaded with dressing so going lighter or just serving the dressing on the side would be a good option for folks to be able to control their respective portion. She ate have of it but had to leave the rest. Thanks for a nice experience and if we have the chance to visit again, we will definitely take this restaurant into consideration.
I eat more here on a Saturday night then I do on Thanksgiving! The food is remarkable and plates are huge! I can drink the salad dressing and the salad is huge! The Broccoli Rabe with sausage, hot peppers, potatoes...OMG! Save the bread because the you will dip it! I am not a big pasta eater, but the linguini with Red Clam sauce is the best!!
Great service, food, BYOB !!
All you need to know...
Place could use a little fabric sound deadening material or something to muffle to ambient chatter & sounds.
BUT AWESOME ANYWAY !!!
