Had the short rib and Spanish squid appetizers and both were amazing. Had the Yellow Fin Tuna entree and it was delicious, but not as yummy as the appetizers. Overall the service was wonderful, food was wonderful and we will for sure be back.

This was my husband's choice for his birthday. Our waiter was prompt and food was excellent. Of all things, the olives are divine! My husband is a bit hard of hearing and the Saturday night noise level was tough, but it is a bustling, vibrant establishment.

I HIGHLY recommend Cucina24 as it is one of my favorite restaurants to visit every time I am in Asheville. It is the best italian food and look forward to each visit. Can't wait to visit Asheville again! I recommend anyone looking for great Italian food and great service from the wait staff plan their visit soon! Grace provided excellent service this past visit and she was very pleasant, made great recommendations, and answered any questions we asked. Enjoy!!

Enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Cucina 24 while visiting Asheville. Our server Alyssa was AMAZING! She was personable, funny and provided excellent recommendations for our dinner. Food is locally sourced and the meal was delicious! We will definitely be back!

Terrible service ruined the meal. Rude hostess, waited 7 minutes before being greeted by our server after being sat (no apologies), and we never saw our server after placing our entrée order. We didn't like the food and needed new drinks and water refills but we weren't revisited until we had finished our food for >5 minutes. A different server brought us our check. The squash blossoms app was the best thing we ate.

We love this place because, for one thing, we can have a conversation there without having to shout at each other. The service is always outstanding, and it's not over-touristed, pretentious, or hyped-up "trendy." All of the staff seems to care about the quality of the food and the quality of the patron's experience.

HAd a fabulous meal at Cucina 24 last weekend! Pasta homemade and perfectly prepared, simply and delicious! Trout was outstanding, as was pizza with peaches and cheese! Chocolate semifredo was scrumptious. Service was excellent, quiet atmosphere where you can actually hear your table conversation. Will go back again!

I've been several times with great food and service, however last night every dish was SALTY. Way too SALTY. All 3 dishes we had were drowning in salt. A shame because the dishes were otherwise quite good but hard to get any other flavor.
Good atmosphere but acoustics were horrible when the place started filling up.
A wonderful place!
This was a delightful experience. Our waitress was very warm and friendly. The service was very good although it did take a bit longer to get our entrees than seemed ideal. Overall, the food was delicious, great atmosphere. We really enjoyed it!
Cucina 24 lives up to billing.
A friend recommended Cucina 24 for dinner. We had the halibut and mussels, and both were delicious. The focaccia bread was a great starter. We had a table at the back of the restaurant overlooking the street behind. It was cozy and gave us a great view of the restaurant. For dessert, we had strawberries in a firm meringue. It was tops too. The service was friendly, helpful and timely.

Truly one of the more remarkable Italian meals I've had in a long time. The food was amazing -- every detail considered and cared about. The service was fantastic - I asked my server for recommendations across all courses and he hit it perfectly. The atmosphere was great.
Highly recommend Cucina 24 to foodies and casual diners looking to be delighted.

Staff was about as kind and competent as it gets. Really enjoyed our meal. Food was fantastic. We are going to start eating a Cucina 24 more often. ESPECIALLY because it was quiet. We are in our 60's and do not like noisy dining rooms. Well done!

The cocktails were perfect. My Manhattan was one of the best I've ever had! Small plates incredible. We enjoyed two bottles of a wonderful wine from Tuscany call Vernaculum. Extremely food-friendly, delicious Aromas and taste of wild strawberries and low alcohol 12%. Our server was top-notch and professional. We can't wait to go back, and hope to get the same server.
