We went to Cucina with friends expecting a nice quiet evening of fine dining. We have gone here for many years and always had enjoyed it. Even celebrated New Year's Eve here a few years ago. The meals were as good as ever; service prompt and timely. But, they have remodeled the interior and it has a very high decibel... More

It had been a few years since we dined here & so glad we did. The food was great - especially the grilled octopus appetizer! Service was good & wines by the bottle were reasonable & good. Definitely will return more frequently!

Second time and the food is delicious but the service is impeccable. Enjoyed a bottle of my favorite wine. Pumpkin ravioli awesome! Can't say enough good things but all good!

I have been to Cucina Paradiso a few times and the food has been fantastic every time. The bacon wrapped dates are incredible. I love the atmosphere. Definitely my favorite Italian restaurant.

I love the ambience of this restaurant, perfect for a date night. Their pizza’s are delicious, especially the pear pizza. The pizzas are large enough to share with another person, just add a salad for a complete meal. Their pizzas are different than your normal cheese and sausage or pepperoni. If your kids expect the Chuckie cheese or Domino’s type... More

I had the pear pizza, it was excellent, it has a balsamic reduction instead of sauce. It was good, but I only ate a quarter of it. I would recommend sharing or taking home the leftovers. My husband had a special, it was filet mignon with mashed potatoes. Can't go wrong with that. Would highly recommend.

The mussels with the garlic cream sauce were out of this world...like nothing I've ever had. And the sweet potato pizza was delish.
