Cucina Market Bistro
Mushroom toast poached egg! Damn good!
One of our favs too! Thanks for coming by!
Great food. Great service.
A fun place to go for dinner. The food was very good although my wife's main was not hot. I would go back to Cucina.
Hi there! We regret to hear your wife's dish wasn't hot enough. We hope it was brought to our attention so that could fix that for you!
Threre are better places around and less crowded in my view
We regret to hear that, friend!
Love this place. My only comment would be that we had to wait for a table about 15 mins. But I would definitely recommend the food and the place! Love it :)
Hey, NewbieFoodie! We sure are a busy, bustling bistro! We're so pleased you enjoyed everything and hope we can see you again soon!
Cucina is my favourite place to lunch downtown. I ALWAYS get the Kale Salad and then something naughty to start. The octopus was delicious, perfectly cooked, not rubbery at all. The team at Cucina is always professional and welcoming. For a business lunch, the service is fast but not rushed.
We always enjoy spending our lunch hour together, Merebear! Thank you for visiting us often and we hope we can see you for a Kale Salad again soon!
They always look after us well at Cucina. It is our after work staple- not just the proximity to the office, but the service and half price bottles of wine.
Awe, shucks! Thank you for making us a part of your week. We look forward to popping bottles with you soon!
Service is on a slower side but the food is amazing.
Thank you for your feedback, Julia! We will look into this further!
Took my mom for her Bday and my folks had never eaten there before AND they're hard to please. They loved it and my dad couldn't stop raving about his steak dinner! Great time all around:) Still remains my fav in YYC!
This overjoys us to read, thank you for sending this in! It is always our pleasure to host you and we thank you for sharing us with your loved ones! Happy belated birthday to your mom and we hope to see you all again soon!
Always great. My go to place in Calgary for breakfast.
Thank you so much, Adam! We always enjoy seeing you over breakfast & a coffee!
Delicious food and fun atmosphere!
Thank you so much, Michelle!
Very nice Italian cuisine in a casual yet upscale atmosphere
Thank you Craig! We're pleased you enjoyed our little Italian bistro :)
Good wild mushrooms and eggs on toast
Thank you very much, Deborah!
Great food and great service.
Thank you, Arlene!
Popped in for lunch. The service was attentive and friendly. We had the daily special pasta and the orcchiette (broccoli, italian sausage, artichoke, herb feta). Both were fantastic. Perfectly cooked pasta, delicious sauces....Should have ordered the full order but it's great they offer smaller portions as an option. I like the vibe there with the white and black colour scheme. Is definitely a repeat.
Thank you for popping in! We're so glad you enjoyed your lunch with us and we very much look forward to seeing you again soon!
Great little find. Staff was incredibly friendly and the food was delicious. 1/2 price bottles of wine at happy hour.
We’ll be back.
We so look forward to the next visit, Timothy!
The ambiance is great, the people are friendly and efficient and the food is consistently good. Value is excellent
Thank you, Greg! We so appreciate your time and sending in your review! We look forward to seeing you again!
Love this spot! Shared the beef tartar which was delicious! Soup of the day was great and entrees were really on point. Tried a couple of desserts which were both awesome. Nice selection of wines. Loved the ambience, smallish but chic. Great value for the $. Will definitely be back.
Thanks, Christine! We're so glad you enjoyed everything and we so look forward to seeing you again!
Out of one of the white wines by the glass, with an already short list, didn’t leave a good option.
Hey, Jannel. We're sorry to hear we were out of one of our glass pours during your visit. We hope you were able to find something delicious with our 5 other options!
Early Saturday evening Calgary Stampede weekend so v quiet. Lovely waitress. Friendly and efficient. My duck was disappointing. Couldn’t taste anything of the sour cherry sauce which looked like dark brown congealed gravy. Croquettes were flavoured with cheese mushrooms something which overpowered duck. My opinion only. Husband enjoyed his chicken so balanced out I guess.

I highly recommend Cucina. It has amazing food and service!!
Thank you so much!
Came with a girlfriend of mine for a catch up before a show.
Host wasn’t the most warm person I’ve ever encountered. I was a bit annoyed at first as there were three tables available by the front with the windows. I was taken to the back (darker corner), until I asked to be seated at the front. Didn’t seem too pleased about the request. Service was slow to start, no one really cared to assist. After, our server kind of warmed up and she was very approachable and gave great reviews/suggestions for the menu.
Overall, I would return again, the food was delicious. Ambiance and atmosphere great.
Hey, Ashleigh! Thank you for joining us, we regret to hear the service you received did not meet our standards and have passed along your feedback. We hope there is an opportunity to see you again soon!
Great ambiance, excellent food! We were there for an early supper before a movie at The Globe, the service was well paced but not rushed. We’ll be back!
We look forward to it!
Hidden gem! Usually go for breakfast but the lunch is just as fabulous!
Thank you! We look forward to your next visit!
Catie as always was great. Amazing server
Thank you! We're a big fan of Katie too.
Always an enjoyable experience!! Breakfast lunch or dinner, food and service is exceptional!!!
Thank you so much! You're making us blush ;)
First time at the restaurant met a friend for lunch...service was great very impressed with the menu choices.
Thank you for joining us, Dawn! We look forward to seeing you again!
I love Cucina for lunch. I even naughtily took a Biscotti back to work for me and it was divine!
Thank you for joining us on your lunch break! It's always our pleasure to see you. We hope to see you for another biscotti again soon!
Cucina is in an excellent location, the overall ambiance and decor is beautiful and the food is AMAZING!
Thank you so much, Lauren! We're so pleased you enjoyed everything!
Great for a drink and catchup. Food is amazing as well.
Thank you so much, Sonu!
Great place for business breakfast meals. A little small but food is very good.
Hey there! Thank you for joining us for your breakfast meeting. We are a bistro so we are small in nature but mighty in flavour!
I love the atmosphere here!
It’s cozy and beautifully presented.
The appies are all great. The tagliatelle, fettuccine and gnocchi are amazing.
The deserts are just the right size for a treat.
We found the staff warm and professional.
This makes us so happy to hear, Janice! Thank you for continuing to join us - we look forward to our next visit!
Some of the very best food and service here!!! 🌷
Thank you so much, Brenda 💓💓
Fantastic restaurant. Wide variety of food selection and able to accommodate almost any request.
This is the place to go if you have food sensitivities, so accommodating!
Thank you, Vanessa! We take great care in the preparation of our menu & dishes. We're so pleased you enjoyed everything and look forward to seeing you again!
Having previously dined at Cucina years prior, I was excited to return while in town. While the ambience and restaurant itself remained classic and comforting, the service and food just got even better. Started with the beef tartare which was delicate but incredibly flavourful. Finished with the carbonara which was rich and delicious. Our waiter was so patient and incredibly polished, never interrupting our conversation or making us feel like we were rushed (we had a three hour lunch...) the wine list was excellent as well, try the Etude Pinot Noir, you won’t be disappointed. Well done Cucina.
This made us smile ear to ear while reading! Thank you for joining us again and we're pleased you enjoyed everything. We hope we will be able to see you again soon!
I keep writing review and I keep going back. I don't know anything new to say except it's great quality food and great atmosphere. It's a downtown fav!
Awe, shucks! Thank you so much for your patronage. We always love our visits!
Met a friend for lunch! Love the menu changes.
Thank you for joining us for our new menu! We hope you were able to pick out your new favourites!
Service and food were very good
This makes us so happy to hear- thank you, Super Dave ;)
Nice atmosphere. Good food, but have had better quality Gnocchi elsewhere. Found the special of the day seafood pasta a little fishy and bland.
Hi there, thank you for your feedback! We regret to hear you didn't fully enjoy your meal with us. We hope we were able to remedy this in the moment for you!
Very nice atmosphere and service was very good. Food choices were excellent .
Thank you, Gunner!
