Cucina was an all time favorite experience. The food was adventurous and curated for both the picky and the daring. Service treated us like regulars making an incredibly comfortable environment. We were lucky enough to meet the owner Dean, who is a wonderful host and guide to both the food and the wine list. We immediately trusted him to pick our first glasses of wine, just based off a few keywords of preference and he nailed each selection to a tee.
We were completely blown away by the culinary experience at Cucina, which jumped straight to the top of our favorite places to dine in SLC. Great for all occasion and you’ll leave finding any excuse to back the next night!
From the minute we stepped in the door and was greeted by Dean, the owner, the experience only got better. The food was so interesting and delicious (you must try the cashew stuffed fried avocado) and we loved the wine Flight which allowed us to try several varieties. I had the ahi tuna and my husband had the mushroom pasta. I have no complaints and only praise for the entire experience. We finished off the meal with the Meyer lemon semi-Freddo and it hit the spot. Thank you to Dean and the entire staff for a marvelous evening.
A delightful experience all around as usual! We always enjoy Chef Joey's delicious creations, the staff's attentive nature, and sharing a laugh with the owner, Dean.
The weather was perfect for al fresco dining and live music. Don't forget to order the Meyer Lemon Semifreddo... delectable and beautiful!
Summer evenings don't get much better.
I brought a group of girlfriends to dinner and they were impressed by the ambiance and food. New palates and the multiple “swirls” were satisfied. Our server, Alex, was attentive and come to find out a mutual acquaintance was found out in light conversation! LOL!! Thank you to Dean, Chef Joey and crew for an exceptional evening.
Great meal. Relaxed evening with old friends.
Great experience on every level; food, service ambiance. Already looking forward to our next visit !
Great food and service!
We always love going to Cucina. The service was fabulous , sadly I can’t remember our waitresses name. Food and wine slushy always excellent.
First rate as always
Incredible food and effortless service. Thank you for the lovely experience.
Fun date night with live music. Dean and his staff are fabulous!
Great experience. Servers are amazing. Live music outside and the food was amazing. The owner was a really nice guy and introduced himself. We will definitely be coming back.
Wonderful ambience and delicious food. Dean is a hands on owner and visited our table several times to chat and make sure everything was going ok. We definitely will visit again. I took one point off service because the young waiters (new?) worked in a zone (team) system rather than on-on-one individual table service approach which meant sometimes you had several wait staff working on your dinner simultaneously which got confusing.
Food and service were both outstanding. Will be going back to Cucina again very soon!
It was nice to take a business client to dinner at Cucina. We support this restaurant. The staff was friendly and very accommodating even as the place filled up. Food, as always, was fantastic, served fresh, and plated beautifully. Thank you.

This place is a gem! The food was nuanced, delicious, and creative. Our server and the owner made us feel very welcome and gave great suggestions. The staff is attentive and knowledgeable about the food and wine, and the dishes were beautifully presented. We definitely "fed" or cameras before devouring the layers of taste and textures.
Great service. Delicious food. Will definitely be back.
Best food and dining experience we have had in a long time. Owner is very nice and all the wait staff was very attentive and friendly. Can’t wait to go back.
Great innovative food paired with an interesting and eclectic wine list in a pleasant neighborhood setting. Strongly recommended.

We are regulars at Cucina. Chef Joey is amazing. Food is consistently wonderful and innovative, and the servers are welcoming, efficient, and friendly. Patio is delightfu,l too!
Our entrees were so absolutely delicious. I had the lobster gnocchi and my boyfriend had the ahi steak. My dish was the star with beautifully balanced flavors and textures. Sitting outside on a warm summer evening sipping my most favorite Gadabout by Donkey and Goat was just so nice.
First time we’ve visited this restaurant and we absolutely loved it. The food and wine was amazing. Definitely going to come back here again!
Delightful little place in the Avenues. food was superb as was the service. Nice wine list as well. What a treat to sit outside on a warm spring night and listen to live music. Will most definitely return.
Great place for dinner. Great food, fully competent service, great wine list.
Fabulous food and patio!
