We went on a Saturday evening, and the atmosphere was relaxed yet upbeat. All staff were friendly and easy going, helpful and attentive. We tried the lamb meatball appetizer and definitely recommend it. Our pasta and salmon entrees were delicious, and well satisfying. For dessert you can't go wrong with tiramisu and/or the gelato. The pumpkin pie gelato has a nice depth of flavour if you're a pumpkin fan. We'll be back.

Our food was delicious. We enjoyed every bite! I had the chicken with squash risotto and my husband went with the spaghetti with a very meaty sauce. We shared a beet salad as an appetizer and a tiramisu for dessert. This was a late lunch (1pm) for us and it was great to see the restaurant bustling with customers. Staff was friendly and efficient.

Lovely evening at Cucina. The arancini was fabulous, along with the marinated olives, warmed - wow! We both had pasta, and they were delicious. The pasta cooked perfectly with an abundance of flavour. I highly recommend Cucina. We will visit again soon.

The food was delicious but heavy on the carbs and protein. A side of a green vegetable such as broccolini would have been perfect.
All seating is close to the kitchen and not a lot of space between the tables.

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!
