This was our first visit to Cucina, and in fact our first visit to Cherry Creek in a very long time (we live in Estes Park). I chose this restaurant because of its location and the contents of the menu listed on their website. My wife and I were meeting an old friend and we were shown to a nice quiet booth where we could enjoy our conversation over lunch. The waitress told us that this was her first day on the job although one would never have guessed. She was excellent. gently guiding my wife through the pizza choices until she arrived at the right one. All of the staff members we encountered were very pleasant and helpful, The soup of the day was superb, as were the turkey sandwiches both our friend and I ordered. This proved to be a delightful place for lunch and we will no doubt return the next time we are in the vicinity.

I've eaten here many times before and the quality of the food and service has been diminishing over time. My pasta was undercooked and the sauce was broken and flavorless. The other diners all remarked about their disappointment with the food. The bread/oil was sadly, the highlight. Our server seemed more interested in chatting with his coworkers than taking care of our table. Cherry Creek is full of great places for lunch so we'll probably start going elsewhere.

Disappointing experience overall. Not having wines listed on the wine menu, getting one of the orders incorrect, and bringing our food out at different times aside from the inaccuracy was unfortunate. Offered to bring more salads while we waited for the second meal, yet charged us for the first one. Seemed like a real lack of focus...

No attention was given to the fact I had requested a booth for a special occasion. Thus we did not have one.
Food was great.
Service was good, a little slow at times but was given a comp dessert.

Cucina never disappoints. We all have our favorites--starting with the delicious bread and dipping oil. I love the conchiglie with sun-dried tomatoes and pecorino cream, and the caesar is delish. The Margherita pizza is a crowd-pleaser, though all are good. In sum, it's one of our go-to's.

I never in a million years thought I could be compelled to write a review such as this but our recent experience at Cucina Colore calls for it. We live in the neighborhood and USED to frequent this place. It was not uncommon for us to visit on a Sunday night and have a longer than average wait for service. This time was no different. As irritating as that was, we were patient, knowing it is not easy to find restaurant staff in Denver lately. What was not acceptable under any circumstances, was our waiter's reaction to our elderly Mother. In her 80's, she can repeat herself and be very direct at times. We manage her and always speak up to wait staff so they know to work through us where her requests and comments are concerned. After the long wait for service and after watching other tables not have such a long wait for service, she spoke up by telling the waiter he was not being a very good waiter to our table - in those words. Although she was telling the truth, we didn't want any type of confrontation and told him to disregard her comments. He reacted by becoming visibly upset and continuing to blow us off for the next ~half hour. When he finally came back to the table, our Mother touched his arm to ask him a question and his reaction was "Please don't touch me." Truly - the most uncomfortable, WORST restaurant experience EVER,EVER,EVER. We totally understand it is challenging to wait on some patrons - our Mother being one of those - but an upscale establishment in this price point should be well equipped to deal with any customer DIPLOMATICALLY & PROFESSIONALLY. For what you are spending at this place, this type of experience is mind blowing. To his credit, the manager on duty offered us a $50 gift card toward our next meal, which we in turn gave away. There is no possibility we will ever go back.

My husband and I are still talking about the bread served before our meal — SO GOOD! We don’t usually eat bread, but we didn’t hold back for this meal...and ordered more bread!! The service was wonderful — attentive & polite — and the restaurant overall is great. Unfortunately for me, my pasta was undercooked and the shrimp was over cooked...yet I devoured it all anyway because the flavors were amazing. I think the portions could be a bit bigger, but I’d definitely come back for more!

We went for a quick lunch on a weekday while we were in the area and had a couple of their pizzas. It was fine and we would consider returning if we were in the area but, otherwise, we wouldn't make a special trip. Our server was disinterested at best. Parking was great.

This used to be a first rate, top notch Cherry Creek staple. This review reflects how far this restaurant has fallen. Fortunately the kitchen has retained some of the old quality when preparing good food. While our server was extremely friendly it is apparent that there is no longer any training at CC. What was a very refined approach has been replaced with little attention to detail. My dining companion was at one point actually creeped out by the person who delivered the entrees. It appears as though there is no management as employees from front and back of house stand around in view of customers conversing with eachother, ambivalent to the needs of those paying for drinks and food. This will be my last time at Cucina Colore until they surely close their doors, and are replaced with a higher quality and more deserving establishment. So very sad.

Overall not bad. Fettuccini bolognese was great. Had an issue with six of us and not all of our entrees coming out at same time. Last one was a full ten minutes behind. Waiter joked their wait staff couldn’t carry more than one plate at a time. What??
