Found this restaurant from a recommendation from out Uber driver. The restaurant is simply amazing. Great vibe, exceptional service and even better food. We found ourselves unexpectedly in West Palm Beach, and are very glad we were. Making plans for later this year to return instead of staying in Fort Lauderdale. Highly recommended.

Great food and atmosphere. So good we went back two days later for lunch. Both times we split a salad and a pizza and everything was excellent -- taste, quality, service. The salads are a bit pricey, but big enough to split and made with fresh ingredients. The pizzas are unique, have excellent crust and are definitely large enough to split with someone else if you don't want leftovers. Walking distance from The Breakers.

My meal, the house style fish of the day (Pompano) was inedible, the table was right in front of the service area and pathway to the outside dining, so we bumped and fall evening. It was very loud and had to shout to hear ourselves despite the fact we were adjacent to the outdoors and were blown to bits by the air-conditioning. The wine list ins mediocre and the menu was anything but compelling.

After making a reservation we were given a high top bar table with other 4 tops available. When we asked they said that those were reserved for reservations, but we had a reservation with open table. She was finally able to find a table for 3 outside but that was because it was cold that night. I was very disappointed.

We ordered the bread service. The breads were delicious. Wish the olives had been more tapenade ground style. I ordered the mussels.. must have been 18-24 of them and yummy! Husband had fish.. also excellent. We shared the chopped wedge. Would definitely return.

The hostess was so mean to us we had a 6pm reservation and arrived at 5:58. She escorted us to a back table in the corner when only 3 tables had people. She hemmed and hawed and would not allow us to sit anywhere we chose. Those tables stayed eMobile we were there. The food was mediocre and the joke was my straight up Kettle One Martini was $14 plus another $4
Very diluted and not even filled up to the top. It took us three requests to get the bill.
Good luck to them. We won’t be back.

Although server was quite nice & polite, she wasn’t that attentive & the place didn’t seem very busy. Biggest issue was that we got our entree much too fast & I still had half a salad. When I nicely complained, they offered to take my salad away! I’m not sure they got it. Anyway, I’ve always had great service in the past. This was disappointing.

Cucina is a nice option for dinner in town. We found a parking spot on the street, which is a plus. The place was lively but not too noisy. We asked the music be turned down as it was blaring close to us, which they did. The food is good, tasty and hot, not fabulous. And for $16.00, you get a very skimpy glass of wine.

Food on the whole was very good. I had amazing mussels. The veggie but was very good as was pizza. My husband had bolenese which was very dry. We also had calamari on the table which I thought was very good but some thought it was quite salty. Dessert was wonderful. So all in all a good dining experience

I have been to Cucina a number of times. The food is very good but I wouldn't say it's outstanding. The one thing that is consistently lacking is good service. Every time I've been there, the waitstaff doesn't seem very knowledgeable and they seem to frequently disappear for long stretches. This time, there were at least 4 employees standing behind the bar chatting while we sat waiting for service. I hope they'll work on this because it's an attractive restaurant with good food.

Cucina had not been on my list of where to dine when on Palm Beach the last few years but I was entertaining a group recently and we chose to try it. We had a terrific time....the food was good and the atmosphere was terrific. I would recommend to anyone for the combo of food quality and people watching.
