We discovered Cucina last night and had an absolutely delightful meal. The cuisine was delectable. The service was friendly and professional. The ambiance was warm and inviting. The portions were very generous. The price was very reasonable for Marin County. I highly recommend Cucina!!!

Went to Cucina with another couple a few days ago. Good food and service. I had the risotto special. It was excellent. My wife had the gnocchi, which was also very good. Nice unpretentious space.

We came here with family who live in SA and are SO happy that Cucina is opened again where it once proudly stood; it's had a redo inside, I believe, so it is much larger than it appears and fresh, as well. We ate outside at one of the picnic type tables and it was very comfortable, quiet, and pleasant.... More

We've enjoyed lunch at Cucina twice in as many weeks since their reopening of lunch hours service. The revitalized interior design is handsome, carefully selected grays, blacks and whites with natural wood and metal accents, one of the best in the north bay. The lunch menu includes salad, pasta, and pizza selections, all nicely prepared. The wine list includes Italian... More

We have eaten here with guests and as a couple multiple times, and it is currently our favorite place to dine in San Anselmo. The menu is straight forward middle to northern Italian with a California influence. The wine list is good but not enormous. It is very popular with the locals and always packed. The tables are close together... More

Given the high prices, and crowded tables and high noise level, I'm surprised this restaurant is as popular as it seems to be. I selected the chicken breast with lemon and caper sauce, thinking I would get a decent portion. It turned out to be three thin slices. Since I didn't order a side of "smashed" potato (cost extra), I... More

Cucina S.A. has reopened with a bang. Great food at great prices. Service was outstanding and the atmosphere is very comfortable. Glad to have such a quality restaurant in sleepy Marin!
