Great food as always, service equal to the food. Great wine list too! My son and his girlfriend were in town so this was my choice, didn’t disappoint. Must try the ice cream sampler, I’m not a sweets person, it’s a great part of the experience.

Owner Dean Pierose and Chef Joey Ferran are amazing. They always deliver a five star meal in an informal setting at very reasonable prices. Half the fun of Cucina is to try all the new creative dishes. Service is always excellent.
A unique menu and a quality wine list guarantees a fabulous experience.

Been here a few times now. I can honestly say it’s my favorite gem in SLC. The menu is fascinating and a little different every time I go. I’ve been blown away by a few fishes each time. We ended dinner with the ice cream selection which ended up being my favorite part of the meal. Each flavor was bizarre and created some heated discussion. A couple of the flavors were hilariously terrible for one, and totally delicious to others. I’m going to remember that selection for a long time!

This was my third visit in as many years, as I was again in SLC area from CA for business. The food, service and atmosphere are outstanding. The menu though small, offers a well balanced variety appealing to me, a pescatarian and friends who are not. Each dish is cooked to perfection & made of creatively combined ingredients. The presentation is "the icing on the cake"! (Don't get me started on desserts which are equally enticing.) Additionally, the wine list has some excellent options of good value. Yes, if I return next year, Cucina will definitely be on my "go to" list!

We really enjoyed our meal at Cucina. The waiter was good but wasn't educated about the wine, which is disappointing. The food my wife ordered (the tuna) was quite good. I had a daily special which was disappointing. I attempted to talk to the waiter about the dish so he could pass on my thoughts to the chef but he was not interested in how I liked the meal, just handed me the check. Overall we had a nice time. Its a great little neighborhood place.

Creative, delicious, well priced and well proportioned, our dinner was perfect. What a relaxing way to spend a summer evening, dining outside (safely apart) at Cucina’s. We love this neighborhood eatery and are grateful they have found ways to stay open during the pandemic. Kudos to everyone at Cucina’s!

Can’t say enough good about this restaurant. Went for a birthday, love the expanded patio during covid. The staff was all super helpful, including the chef who gave a great wine recommendation as he overheard me asking for one as he was passing by.

Had the game hen and wow, what a dish! (The wine pairing was spot on too).

Great for the price, quiet location, a delicious dish, superb wine.

Excellent all around!

Cucina did an amazing job, despite COVID-19. They had tables set up in the parking lot with thoughtfully placed umbrellas for shade. The server was excellent, despite having to run in and out of the restaurant all evening. The food was so delicious and the food and wine menu were thoughtfully created. Great experience with delightful ambiance.

Great appetizer with imported cheeses from Caputo’s market, delicious pork medallions and vegetable risotto, lovely Barbera wine, and luscious chocolate cake with homemade stracciatella gelato. Visit Cucina Toscanna when you are in SLC!
