Bartender was lackluster and picking her skin, which was strange. Impossible burger an unusual experience and chicken part a mound of red sauce which looked like what would be served at a truck stop.

Evidently Open Table reservation is meaningless ! We were ushered to the furthest table, in front of kitchen. It was 6:00 the place was empty.. a few at the bar, 2 tables on terrace, 2 empty and inside totally empty. We were refused every table that we suggested and told they we’re reserved . We said we have a reservation ! We gave up and sat very uncomfortably , watched party’s of 2 and 4 get the booths that we wanted . We will not go back. We live here and we will go where we are welcomed!!! And valued customers.

First time we've been there where the food was awful service was great there was a big party in the back of the restaurant and all of the attention was for them. We were the only people there on a Monday night it was empty service should've been good like it always is very disappointed we were with friends who had never been there before and they will not go back

I was worried as my companion had a bad lunch experience here. However we went anyways and we were very glad we did. Food, ambience and service were all fantastic . As it was a Friday night, they start putting away the tables around 10 ish, the DJ arrives and Cucina is transformed into a really fun bar. We didn't know this as we were visiting from out of town. We stayed well beyond the dinner hour and had a great time.

Started off great. But then the restaurant got busy and the server became spread way too thin and no where to be found. The calamari appetizer was great, but the veal chop was bland and tough and the snapper was rather bland as well.

Used to be good...after being bad 3 times in a row over the last 2 months I'm going to give it a rest. WE had chicken cacciatori that was loaded with fat, and the chicken parm could have been a frozen store bought package...tasteless food...disappointing.

Ordered Rose wine, Miraval. Ordered another glass, they gave me another type of wine. When I questioned the wine, the waiter asked the bartender who told him that they had run out of Miraval. Should have told me that BEFORE giving me wrong wine. And they should have comped the wrong wine. Very bad way to run a business by deceiving customers. Proceed with caution.

So disappointed in the re-opening of this beloved restaurant. The old Cucina is gone for good. New Cucina is a loud, NY-style bistro, bar scene, very loud. Food OK, not nearly as good as the former iteration.

RIP Cucina!

Food very good. Waiter must have been new as this is the first time anything had ever gone wrong with an order. Undercooked burger as I realized he never asked how I'd like it cooked. No Gorgonzola on the side. No raw onion as requested.
Tater tots wonderful as was my husbands dish.

Great food and drink, amazing meatball app, burratta and beat salad and veal chop. The best part is that they turn the floor into a lounge after dining and it had a great scene after the meal.

I used to spend my holidays in Palm Beach and would go to Cucina all the time for drinks at the bar, never took it seriously as a restaurant, one night that changed when I took a girl there on a date and tried their food. Their food is some of the best Italian food in South Florida, food that I missed coming from NY. Veal parm, penne ala vodka, eggplant parm, grilled seafood dish and it goes on, so good! It's set in fun / romantic / casual / classy atmosphere... I'd suggest everyone try Cucina

Carmines Trattoria has a waterfront patio dining and indoor dining that has an upscale feel. It has been a few years since we have dined at Carmines. We were seated on the patio and ordered the following entrees; Sword Fish Special, Veal Chop, and the Chicken Special which were all exceptional. The service was also wonderful which made the evening very enjoyable. On another occasion, we returned and had the Dover Sole which was fantastic along with the outdoor patio music. Also the shrimp risotto was very good.

We have dined at Cucina many times but this time we were very disappointed. We took friends that had never been there before. The food was below par. We ordered the zucchini haystack for an appetizer. It tasted like old oil was used to fry it. We sent it back and were told that they would make another order for us but we declined. Then we had the arugula salad. That was ok. The chicken francese we ordered was not good. The chicken had tough strings or veins in it that made it hard to chew and there wasn't much flavor. The mashed potatoes served with the chicken were a little weird. They were more like cream of wheat with lumps in it.
This meal was nothing like our previous ones dining here. I recently heard they have a new chef. Maybe that was the problem. Our server, Katie was excellent. She kept coming over to see if everything was alright and followed through with our requests.
Anyway, we will not be returning in the near future.
