    Food portions were large, enough for take home for lunch next day. Wine list was nice, with different bottles from Oregon, CA, Italy and elsewhere. Nineteen different pastas according to my son. Tried several and all three were wonderful. Service was a little off, but probably due to the crowd on Mother’s Day evening. Will be back

    Cucina has always been a favorite of our family for regular dining out and for special occasions. The caprese salad is unique and the best that I have ever tasted. I like that the pastas are offered in two sizes. The fish is always perfectly done. The bread pudding is my all-time favorite dessert. The wait staff is extremely attentive, with waiters keeping an eye out to help at tables that are not even their own assignment.

    It was ok. Came here due to gluten free pasta but was unimpressed with the dish. Many restaurants overcook gluten free pasta for some odd reason and this place was no exception. Most dishes have cheese. It was fine but I wouldn't go out of my way to dine here again.

    The food and wine and service was great. My only issue was partly my fault. I ordered one of the specials - a beef rib pappardelle (I’m probably spelling that incorrectly). I had assumed a beef gravy base. It turned up, beautifully but with a heavy tomato base. I’m not supposed to eat cooked tomatoes. So, I picked around them and ate half the entre and took the rest home for someone else to enjoy. Note - a very positive one- the portion was very large. Nicely done. I should have asked more about the dish. Our server was great. I never even told him of my issue because it was my fault for not asking. Great wine. We had a nice evening.

    Ordered an item on the specials menu...Beef Tenderloin with a red wine reduction sauce with grilled asparagus and roasted potatoes....meat was cooked exactly as I requested and was tender and flavorful. Asparagus was not soggy and had the right amount of crunch. Potatoes could have been crisper but were still very good. For appetizers we ordered the meatballs and fried calamari. The meatballs very very good...the fried calamari had to be redone as the breading was on the soggy side...but the second batch were great and paired well with their marinara and pesto mayo. Others at my table went with the Chicken Parm with rigatoni in vodka cream sauce. It was also very good. The chicken was tender and juicy and the vodka cream sauce was very good.
