cucina sa

Cucina SA is a great neighborhood place to enjoy one of our pizzas from the wood-burning oven, or savor our many pasta dishes and entrees, while perusing a vast selection of Italian Wine. Our wine list features 150 selections, focusing primarily on all the great regions of Italy, with some interesting California offerings as well. We have our main dining room in front, with a great view of the wood-burning oven. We also have a cozy Wine Bar in back, where one can chose either a table or counter dining, for a quick glass of wine, or a leisurely dinner. In the warmer months, we also have a handful of tables outside on the wood bridge.

"Our favorite neighborhood restaurant is back and it is as good as ever.The menu is pretty much the same and some of the waiters are back.
Everything is fresh and well prepared.
I do not like the new seating arrangement as it is crowded.
I guess they have to squeeze a few more people in
Overall a real winner

"So many of us were disappointed when Cucina closed, but they have reopened and are better than ever. The restaurant has been completely redone in lovely taupes and creams with banquette seating and plenty of bar seating in the adjoining room. The former staff is back, and they and Donna, the owner, are all so welcoming and a joy to see. The menu has expanded and more specials are available -- the wine list is terrific with many by the glass. It's a great neighborhood spot for friends, family and couples and worth a destination. The food never disappoints."

"Donna is delightful and so is her staff. The location is cozy and comfortable. If you live in San Francisco definitely make the trip. Easily one of the best Italian restaurants in Marin."
