While I was disappointed that the gnocchi with gorgonzola, peas and walnuts is no longer on the menu, my lunch entrée of chicken with the squash risotto more than made up for it. It was delicious. So was the beet salad and of course the tiramisu.
My husband also greatly enjoyed his pappardelle dish.
The validated underground parking was much appreciated on such a bitterly cold day.

This is such a quaint gem! The staff, food and ambience and all divine!
Gnocchi is delicious and the burger one of the best in town hand downs!
Thanks for the great service and scrumptious nibbles!

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.
