We had a pasta bolognese special and it was incredible. Meatballs are ok. Half price wine before 6 was great but we drank twice as much. :)
Food was excellent - it was difficult to choose because everything coming out of the kitchen looked delicious. Service was very attentive and courteous. I will definitely be back.
Ambiance was nice, service was good but the pasta was overcooked, shouldn't happen in an authentic Italian restaurant.
Nice seating area, but a little loud at lunch. Great food.
The food here is amazing along with the atmosphere. A very trendy Italian market bistro great for all occasions. Great location, food, service and generous portions. Tough to find a better all purpose place to dine.
Food was amazing! And the price was very reasonable given the quality of food.
Food was terrific, service was excellent, we would definitely go there again.
Valentine’s Day dinner was great at Cucina!
The food, wine and service was fantastic. A lovely gesture was the beautiful long stem red rose that I was given at the end of the evening as well. We’ll be back for sure!
Waited 25 minutes to be seated, after our reservation. Seated in a cramped area. Took 10 minutes to order cocktails. Cocktails took 15+ minutes and came right away with our appetizers and dinner wine. Appetizers were good. Ordered a steak and broccoli for dinner - BOTH were cold. To the point that we sent them back and we’re tired of waiting for we settled up and left. Would not go back.
The food was overall very good. Although the seating could be arranged a bit better as I was sitting against a wall right next to the kitchen along with the bathroom area and it was a bit loud for my liking.
Great service and food. However charge for water was not a pleasant surprise...
Excellent Italian food! The service is great!
Easily the best pasta in the city. Great place great service.
Great food and atmosphere. The staff are wonderful too!
Great food in a quaint atmosphere
The risotto was amazing, I didn't want to stop eating it. Beautiful space as well. Food was a bit slow to get out, but it was a busy lunch.
The service and food was perfect. Always perfect on all levels!
Great food, wine and service!
One of the best meals I’ve had in a long time!
Empty water. Empty beer glass. Asked for pepper twice. Sat for a while after being finished before desert menu or bill.
Fabulous food! The chefs make the experience. Service also top notch which is equally important.
I’ve been to this restaurant innumerable times for business and personal meals. The food is always fantastic and can only be outdone by the amazing service. It’s the only restaurant I can think of downtown that after a couple of years of dining I can’t recall even an average experience. Highly recommend.
Great service and food!
Pricey, but nice. Food is always great, service is nice, and very central, great for business meet.
Great place, park at the core lot across the street, free after 530pm. Best carbanara pasta in town hands down.
Well priced perfect service.
The food was good, but we were seated in the corner literally in the inside doorway. I had nowhere to put my coat, purse, and was constantly bumped as people walked through the door. I would never have accepted the table but I was with a client. Also, the hostess should take my coat, and our server should have recognized that my coat had to be put on the floor! The location is convenient for my clients, and the fish special was great. I won’t accept that table next time though.
Four of us at here for a business lunch. The food was full of flavour and piping hot. Service was friendly and attentive. One small complaint was the restaurant was uncomfortably warm this day.
Excellent food. Attentive service. Quiet when we arrived at 6 Saturday. Busier when we left at 7:30 for the theatre. Ended up being $40 each for mains, coffee, and tip. Will go back again.
Food was average at best. Pizza was not thoroughly cooked and the spinach salad was over dressed and wilted. Very disappointing.
Cucina was busy at lunch, which is nice to see in the current economy. The service & food were fast and tasty (we were done within an hour), although my carbonara was quite heavy and oily.
My two co-workers and I enjoyed the food very much! Good variety!
Good spot for a quick dinner and an after work drink.
No complaints. Food was great; service was friendly and knowledgable; and we got in and out in just over an hour.
Top server in Calgary. Super fast and friendly. Abasksjsjsjdjdjjddjdjjdjdjd
My co-workers and I were there to celebrate a birthday. Three of the four of us are vegetarians and there were enough vegetarian selections that we each had something different and we all enjoyed the dishes we had. The only negative is that it was VERY noisy (and it's not a very big restaurant).
Service slow to start but once we got on the treadmill we were well attended to.
Server was willing and eager to accommodate all special requests. Food was good but seating, and ambiance, was so unaccommodating I was challenged to fully be in the moment and simply enjoy dinner: tables are RIDICULOUSLY close together, might as well be dining with strangers and the server could barely squeeze in to do her work; we were butted right up against the door/window, so - chilly; quite noisy, everyone had to really lean in to hear and be heard.
Food was nice but I might not hurry back.
We were seated off to the side on high chairs
Delicious food and good service. If you decide to have an appetizer consider ordering a half size primi (pasta), since the portions are very generous.
usually a great experience, not good on this meal. The food didn't arrive for 45 minutes and wasn't the best dish I've had here.
