We went here with a party of 11, including 5 kids (1-7 y/o). They accommodated our reservations and had a great set up for us. The service (I wish I could remember our gals name) was fabulous!

There is no flexibility with the menu at all. Our dinners were good but would have been better if we could have ordered what we wanted. Example: Pizza with sausage NO, the menu offers a cheese pizza but you cannot add sausage. The menu offers...More

In 2017, we grew our family again, adopting two well-established and well-loved restaurants. Morganton-based Cucina Rustica and La Pizzeria at Cucina Rustica were opened by longtime friends of ours years before we arrived in Blue Ridge. When they were thinking of retiring, we saw the opportunity to own the land where our restaurants would live. So we purchased the two Italian-style concepts and brought in Danny’s touch with fresh ingredients and classic European chef training. Cucina Rustica is focused on a fine dining experience with Danny’s interpretation of Old World Italian foods from Sicilian fish dishes to Northern Italian pastas and everything in between. La Pizzeria at Cucina is your classic New York-style pizza place. A place where everyone knows your name and what you like on your pie. We love that – we both grew up with those classic places in our hometowns in Connecticut and Philadelphia.
