The staff and food are excellent. Nearby parking at Wall St. garage and easy access to the rest of downtown Asheville. Don't forget to try the Fried Artichokes if they are on the menu...WOW!

This place is amazing. Take a couple hours for the meal, because you are not going to want to rush the experience. Fantastic wine list, high quality ingredients, excellent staff!

Busy and noisy, our party of 4 had to sit at the bar - awkward for conversation but good for watching the pizza chef drop his knife and place it right back on the food counter and the salad chef drop a bowl and place...More

As indicated by others there is street parking which opens up a bit in the evenings and a City parking garage. If you are staying in a downtown hotel as I did then the restaurant is easy walking distance.

Go right to the garage. It's inexpensive - I think the first hour is free. Even if there is parking on Wall St itself, which happens rarely, the street is quite narrow and your car is at risk. In my opinion.

Chef & owner Brian Canipelli opened Cucina 24 in 2008 on Wall Street in the center of downtown Asheville, NC. Our kitchen is focused on melding the traditions and philosophies of Italian cookery with ingredients found in the mountains of the American South. We work closely with a number of area farms and our menus reflect produce that they bring to us.
