Enjoy a taste of our widening variety of red and white wines- ranging from a crisp & floral Sauvignon Blanc to pair with our locally caught Basil Salmon dish, or even a bottle of Alauda Toscana to accompany our infamous Osso Buco
Please note: we have limited seating, in our main dining room, for parties of 5 or more. Please call 904.432.920 if anyone in your party has a challenge with climbing stairs.
Look no further - this restaurant will satisfy every person in your party. Being from NYC I am always hesitant on Italian food and this place did not let me down. Service is great, fantastic ambience, food is to die for and you can get your +100 open table points. What more could you want?! This is a restaurant great for all occasions: everyday, date, special occasion, get together, etc. Huge portions and very reasonable prices. Book now!
Great atmosphere, excellent service, and Braised short ribs was so tender and shrimp with angel hair pasta was wonderful! Definitely will be back.
Well prepared authentic Italian cuisine with great service and a friendly neighborhood atmosphere. The shrimp appetizer (Gamberi) was outstanding and the spaghetti and meatballs is as good as it gets.
This was the first time that we had been back for several months. The staff made us feel extremely welcome and they made us have a very special date night. The changes that have been made from the greeting all the way through dinner gets an A+ in my book. Tanner greeted us at the door an provided us with our choice of seating and Katie was our server that night and did a terrific job. The food was fantastic! I had the vegetarian risotto and I will be ordering that again. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a great experience and not just a meal!
We love the downstairs dining room as it is soooo cozy. The service was impeccable and the food delicious. Lots of variety on the menu from pizza to elegant fish and meat entrees. Something for everyone!
Great food and staff. We had a super evening! Wine is divine. Nice setting.
Excellent food. Great ambiance. Little loud in room we sat in but didn’t keep Us from having good conversation.
Lovely small house, intimate and comfortable, excellent food and service. Generous portions, served piping hot, enough to share or take home. I plan to come back when I can sit out under the trees!
We love this place! One of our favorites. Great food, friendly staff.
Katie our server was great.
Another great meal at Cucina South. Our server Katie was excellent. This is one of our favorites restaurants on Amelia Island.
Great brick oven pizzas. Italian restaurants with a very homey feel to it.
Very yummy food and service. Enjoyed my birthday celebration with my hubby. Asked for a quiet table and they were able to accommodate. Definitely recommend.
It was my wife's birthday which the staff recognized with a complimentary dessert. The entrees were exceptionally good and the service excellent.
Food excellent and service attentive and professional
Outstanding food. We had party of five and ordered 5 appetizers and 3 different entrees. All 8 were very good. Service was top notch. Great waitress. From NJ and Chicago, we will come back.
Food was ok, I had the shrimp app and it had so much garlic I could not eat it. Salmon soup was very good.
Really good dependable neighborhood place.
All of our food was very good, and so was the wine (Chianti). We had made a reservation outside but it rained - but they had a table for us anyway in cozy spot upstairs. I also liked our server.
We enjoyed a wonderful and delicious dinner while visiting Amelia Island. We’ll definitely be back the next time we visit. I would go back just for the blue cheese and mushroom risotto!!!!!
Everything was great. Primary server and food were fantastic. Can't wait to come back.
The food was absolutely delicious! Our server Brian, was very attentive. I ordered the scallops with risotto which was cooked perfectly.
Cucina South has a cozy atmosphere, delicious food, and wonderful service. The salmon is my favorite!
Fast friendly services in a relaxing atmosphere . Delicious food delivered in a timely manner.
Happy to find this little Italian spot in Fernandina Beach. I had the fettuccine Alfredo and it was a large portion of yummy comfort pasta.
My husband and I dined at Cucina South while visiting Fernandina Beach. The food was outstanding. I had the fresh catch of the day which was prepared with olives, capers, artichokes in a delightful butter and wine sauce. The service was friendly and amazing as well. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
Food was amazing!! Sat outside and it was perfect! Service was great! Would recommend to everyone and will definitely go back!!!
Pasta Night every Wednesday at Cucina South seems to be our favorite night to go to this wonderful Restaurant. On Wednesday, October 10th we both enjoyed the Shrimp Scampi special. It was as delicious as it looks. The second photo is the Basil Salmon, which is on the regular menu, and is one of my favorites. The ambiance is nice, whether you are seated downstairs or upstairs. They now have outdoor seating but it was raining the night we were there so we were not able to sit outside. Brian, our server, was very attentive and took good care of us. Another wonderful experience going to this great restaurant!
Great place to Dine!
Food amazing, service excellent
We arrived on a Sunday evening and tasted a few items. The Polpetta App (Meatball with Polenta) was amazing. Best damn Polenta I ever had. I had the Short Rib and my Wife had the Salmon. Both cooked perfectly. Nice portions and delicious. We had a wind flight that gave us a chance to taste 4 wines. Overall, great experience. Service was excellent.
Cuisine was exceptional...full service alcohol would be nice...
Good food...variety of choices. Friendly service. Fun experience!
Once again we had a delicious meal at Cucina South. Excellent service, food and wine.
Great service and food. I would recommend. The special and pasta were tasty. The service was friendly and accommodating without too much hovering.
Excellent food , one of our favorite places for Italian food. Single serving pizzas done in a brick oven. Great seafood as well.
Food was amazing as always but disappointed with the service. Waited 30 minutes for dessert & another 15 minutes for waiter to bring back out credit card. I went 30 minutes with no water. The waiter was good but all the waiting turned a great evening into a hassle.
Had a nice dinner on a Saturday night. I had the spicy shrimp and pasta dish which was excellent and the wife had the bruschetta pasta which was also great. Good service as well.
Excellent food and great romantic candlelight dinner.
Excellent meal and service. So glad we decided to try something new this trip to Amelia Island.
We visit Amelia Island a minimum of 10-14 days a year, Cucina South is always on our must go list for dining! The food, wine and service never disappoints and are consistently exceptional.
