I hadn't been to Cucina in awhile and now I remember why I loved it so much. We had the arancini and gnocchi and it was outstanding. We finished every single bite! We sat on the patio and it was just the perfect spot for a nice lunch outdoors!

Loved everything about this place, service, atmosphere and food. Cocktails were too strong, we ordered the margarita for my fiancee and it was overpoured... I'm a tequila drinker and it was even strong for me. The only one detail I didn't like was the cold blast of air every time someone opened the front door. We had to put on our jackets while dining because the air was coming in straight to our table. Food was amazing, service too. My gf loved it and we couldn't have dessert because we were full with the delicious soup, octopus and chorizo appy and mains.

Hello Rodrigo, thank you for joining us on the weekend. We are sorry about the cold, and the too strong tequila drinks. We appreciate the awesome feedback though about our food and service. We hope we can have you for dessert sometime soon!

Great meal & service but the ambiance could be better. It could of been due to Covid that the table was in a bit of an awkward spot.
We really enjoyed the food from the appetizer, main meals & the tiramisu.

Cucina Market and Bistro was a wonderful dining experience for my guest and me. Attractive interior, furniture and ambience - it felt like a cafe in Provence. The food and wine were delicious. The waitress was polite, friendly and attentive. All-in-all, everything you want in a small restaurant. I will be a return guest.
