Reviewed 7 November 2010

The Cucina is a special place - made special by the warm and endering owner, Joe, and his great staff. There are no menus which is part of the charm; the server takes the time to interact with the guests by reading all of the freshly prepared offerings of the day. This takes time, so if you are in a rush the Cucina may not be for you. It is a slow-paced, leisurely evening of conversation and fun. The kitchen is open to the seating area so you feel as though you are eating dinner at a friend's house in their kitchen.

The portions are gigantic. A half salad can easily be shared by 2-3 people. Unique, delicious offerings like the sackatini, a pasta stuffed purse, and shrimp on fire are ever-changing. Joe shops daily and centers the menu around whatever fresh incredients that he finds.

Reservations on the weekend are necessary, as the place is small and fills up fast. The Cucina has a devout following of locals who are regulars. The place itself is tucked away down a little enclave off of Main Street. Don't forget to make a reservation and BYOB. Non-alcoholic drinks, coffee and cappuccino are available. From time to time, they have a jazz night on weeknights. Thursday night is a good night for first-timers to come in to experiment with tapas portion offerings of the menu.
