Nice little place with reasonable prices and great food! Both inside and outside was open with limited inside seating. Super nice staff!

Delicious, authentic Italian meals. Our server was super friendly and helpful. We got the foccacia bread with olive oil, chicken Marsala, their ravioli special (shrimp scampi stuffed ravioli, with a Cointreau cream sauce), and the sogna dessert. All were spectacular. We also had the limoncello martini, an old fashion, and some wine. All were great, too. We will definitely be back. It's some of the best Italian we have had in Austin.

We celebrated our 22nd Anniversary here and had a delicious and wonderful experience.
Michael did an amazing job recommending the wine, popular dish; Osso Bucco, pasta dish, panna cotta dessert. It's almost like we are back in Italian Riviera.
Overall, a romantic ambiance, good food and most importantly a very thoughtful customer service. Absolutely returning and highly recommended to couples.
Grazie Italian Cucina!

Everything was wonderful except the music was really bad and a bit too loud for dining at a nice restaurant. Food and service were top notch though. Definitely will be returning.

This dining experience was our first since the restrictions were lifted, and they did an amazing job of spacing tables out to keep a safe distance, yet still made it feel warm and inviting. As usual, the food was amazing, the service was great, and we got time with the always cheerful owner, Al Fini. Congratulations on a great re-opening!!

The food far exceeded mine and my husband's expectations (and we are super picky about Italian food). It was phenomenal. Service was fantastic as well.

Enjoyable experience, if you are looking for a little quieter experience go early, we started at 6:15 and left about 8:30. By 8:30 they were busy and the noise level was considerably higher when we left. Food was fantastic and the service was outstanding. We will definitely be back.

I was happily surprised that It's Italian Cucina was cozier than I expected! The service was fantastic, the food was delicious and served at perfect temperatures, and their wine selection is terrific!

Amazing food. The service is top-notch and it has become one of our favorite Italian restaurants in Austin. The owner is always present and his involvement shows in the quality of the dishes delivered.

So, Saturday night, in Austin, the day after Valentines Day, busy, as expected. Tables inside are placed very close together We opted for outdoor seating so that we could have conversation. Getting table service was slow, almost 15 minutes before a waiter cam over. Once he did, he was attentive and pleasant. It was really busy, so service of food and beverage was slow. They could improve by reducing the amount of tables by just a few. They'd still be able to turn tables over and make plenty, if not even the same amount of revenue by doing this since the kitchen and bar would not be overworked.

Food--really good. The meatballs are excellent as are the lamb chops and tortellini. Nice wine pairings. I'd return.

All of the food was excellent on the Valentine's Day 3-course fixed price menu. The service was friendly, attentive and efficient. The outdoor seating was very nice and warm, even though the night was cool. The prices were very reasonable for the quality and quantity (good, not-huge portions). Definitely recommend and will return.

Entree was overcooked; pasta was stale and cold, no flavor. Way too expensive for the poor quality.

The food was great, the menu offers a nice selection of Italian entrees, and the service was attentive. It's a cute little spot, but it's really loud when it fills up, but some people like that!
