What a small gem in the middle of New Hope! The menu is verbal and the description was perfect! The pork chop was cooked to perfection and was delicious! We also had the shrimp on fire and sausage and broccoli rabe...AMAZING!!! The owner Joe is so friendly, he sat and had a glass of wine with us. It is BYOB... More

My wife and I were very excited about getting in the Italian Cucina. I expected really good gravy but found it average at best We started with the sausage appetizer that everyone raves about. Basically it was a chili made with sausage meat. Very Average. I had the pork chop. I was use to having my chop grilled. I think... More

Nice little place off the road that serves different specialties each night. Tonight the variety was between pork, pasta, seafood, etc. in these specialties. The food was delicious! I had the salmon with salad and scallop appetizer. Overall the place is very personable as the owner seems to greet everyone coming into the door, regulars and newbies alike. Very friendly... More

My three friends and I (we're all African Americans) walked in, the hostess ran up to us and said "We have no room for you guys. Sorry you have to leave." Meanwhile, there was TWO open tables literally next to us. We were a party of 4. She wouldn't let us in the restaurant. It was obvious why we were... More

This place needs to be sanitized! Sticky tables, falling down building, flys everywhere. We left. It's a byob so I think this is why this place stays around. Owner needs to overhaul this place and break out the bacteria spray and scrub.

We visited with the family for a special authentic Italian dinner. Overall the dinner was good - but based on the overall ratings we expected awesome. I hope it was just that the meals weren't aligned with our tastes. I could tell by the careful attention to all the customers that the owner, who takes time to stop and say... More

I love this place. The food is excellent and freshly prepared. The owner, Joe, is such a wonderful person. He takes time to greet everyone! I just wish I had more time to enjoy this intimate place. Hope to be back soon. This place is NEVER disappointing.

SInce we live in New Hope, we decided to stop in during the week without a reservation to see if we could get a table for two. We did, and had a nice meal. Very, very, very close quarters. Not my favorite feeling since I am a little claustrophobic. I was happy to get some fresh air after dinner.

I don't understand the high rating, maybe it's the lack of good Italian restaurants in New Hope. The service was friendly but the food was just fair. The appetizers were good but boring. The pasta dishes were average and the sauses lacked flavor. We sat on the porch under a meldowed air condidioner, the main small dining room was better... More

Our first time here! Friends had told us about this restaurant but we had never got to it! What a diamond in the rough...totally off the beaten path...a little difficult to find..but oh so worth it! We had the most perfect date night! We got to Italian Cucina and after entering this small house like restaurant, a girl named Ann... More
