Cucina Urbana is better than any Italian food in Little Italy. Love this place
This was the one of the best meals I’ve ever had, Matt was the most amazing server ever
Inventive and delicious courses. We enjoy sharing multiple items and bring the great tiramisu home for later.
My family and I come once a year for a special dinner while on vacation. We have always had such a great experience and amazing food. We love Kevin also!

We had such a wonderful time.
Love the outdoor dining... hope you keep that around after COVID!
The welcoming friendly atmosphere comforted us. The dinner menu attracted us. We ordered several appetizers tha we never had before. They were very tasty. The main dishes were very good too.
Steven, our waiter was helpful and polite.
CU was simply fantastic! They have lovely seating outdoors, the cocktails were amazing, the octopus a delight as always. I was shocked at how quickly we licked the platter of burrata clean. I cannot believe how good the chicken was. Who orders the chicken at a place like this with so many other great choices? You do if you have any sense!
Oh my GOD! Phenomenal! I had been here once before and I don't remember it being so remarkable. Not sure if it's because I haven't been out in nearly 15 months, but every single thing we ordered was perfect. From the zucchini blossoms, giant meatball, the chicken fra diavolo. Superb, I will be back sooner than later! Oh, and the tiramisu, WOW, a layer of caramel, and chopped hazelnuts and chocolate pieces for texture, amazeballz.
Kemper always provides the best service at this restaurant. I love the polenta, the chicken is to die for, the paparadelle was cooked perfectly and the bucatini i’m talk texting so I apologize for my grammatical Italian mistakes but the food was so good and I highly recommend the Pavlova
arrived early for our reservation and we got seated immediately. Food was very good and service was fast.
Amazing meal, awesome service, delicious wine, friendly staff.
Fresh food good service creative food and alcoholic beverages.
Amazing food! We are not from San Diego and are visiting for the long weekend. Wow we were truly blown away by the ambiance, food and PLAYLIST! Great spot - will come again :)
Our food was delicious and the service was outstanding!
Delicious! Great pastas. Perfect for us family of 3. Our 4 yr old son devoured the kids pizza.
We had a great time at Cucina Urbana. Our food was delicious and service was excellent. The heat lamp kept us plenty warm.
It was a great experience! I went there for my prom dinner with friends. We order an area of stuff I would say my favorite drink was the ginger beer and my favorite meal was the short rib pasta. The waiter was amazing that was the first time a waiter asked me if I had any food allergies or limitations. Which for me was helpful because I'm actually kosher so she proceeded to explain to me the things I couldn't have on the menu which made it so much easier. Just an overall great experience and I'm excited to go back again!
Have always enjoyed Cucina Urbana and look forward to continuing visits. Our service person was terrific, the food (of course) marvelous, and getting together with friends, priceless. Thank you for weathering the storm...
The food and the service was Outstanding! I hate octopus but it was brought to our table and smelled soooo good that I tried it. TO DIE FOR!!! I'm a fan of it but will only eat it there. Our server (I forgot his name) was Superb! All the appetizers and entrees were delicious! I will be back as soon as I can.
it was a nice place to un-wine after a graduation ceremony
The best place in Sd.
Family get together…
Celebrating my sons college graduation at Cucina:
Lovely and attentive server and nice atmosphere
The food was delicious!
worst italian restaurant i’ve been to. overpriced and not enough food. wasted my time and money. should’ve gone to little italy
Everything was perfect!!!!
The short rib pappardelle was scrumptious -- just the right balance of flavors and sauce.
The meringue on pavlova was too crunchy compared to the melt in your mouth one I had last time. The waiter forgot to bring the wine book and had to be reminded twice. And while it was great to see the restaurant crowded given the last year and a half, the noise level made conversation almost impossible.
