I love this place. Everything here is amazing!
Great food and service. Very creative and uses fresh ingredients. Portions are huge and can be shared. Only negative was the fact that it was terribly noisy.
I was planning on proposing to my girlfriend (I did) the waiter was very helpful in my set up. He offered us some very fine wine which really set the atmosphere. The food was amazing I had the osso buco (which I really recommend) and my fiancé had the popperdelle... I butchered the spelling I apologize... we followed up with tiramisu for dessert and it was great. My fiancé first time having that kind of dish and she loved it. It was a little noisy in the restaurant but I believe because of the holiday (st Patrick’s Day) but all in all I recommend this restaurant. I’ve already been telling my friends and family about it.
Have gone to this restaurant many times. I like that they change up the menu frequently. Also like that it is only 3 blocks from my home and offers great food.
This time we had the best waitress in the world there - and so wish I remembered her name. But that is what you get here - interesting food and great service.
Great dining experience! Loved the polenta and date, ricotta, and bacon pizza!
Everything was great except the noise level. It was ear splitting. Also, the Brix wine under the funky category was not funky. It was just really bad wine.
Cucina Urbana was not as good as it was a couple of years ago. The food was mediocre. The menu had changed. The service was slow.
I used to go to Cucina regularly when I lived in the neighborhood. Was so excited to go back after a long absence. Left feeling disappointed. Would probably not go back. Would go to Little Italy instead.
Food as always was great. Our server was decent, she didn’t check up on us as often as I would have expected.
One of the best dining experiences I had. The food was to die for, oh so good. Our server (James?) was very attentive and knowledgeable, and the ambience so sophisticated. I celebrated my birthday with my hubby and sis in law, and they brought me 2 canoles for desert, as a birthday present. We will be back for sure.
The food and the service were both exceptional. They waive their 9.00 corkage fee on Sundays, which makes their wine prices just about unbelievable. It's a big, noisy crowd, so it's not an intimate experience, but for a big group that's expecting great food and excellent service, it was a home run!
Our seating was in the midst of all, easy for access and central to all diners. One thing I noticed was the low lighting level. I needed my phone flashlight to even begin to read the menu, however my date did not so it may be my vision lacking a bit.
The friendly server was attentive and I followed through at meal's end with tip. She answered all our questions informatively, and shared quick preferences about food & wine selections. The dining room was full during out stay. The staff started clearing our plates a bit too soon, but I understood and we wrapped up out experience when finished.
Overall I would return, and definitely recommend to anyone for a bright spot in Bankers Hill.
This is a restaurant I would recommend to everybody! It was welcoming, the staff was friendly AND knowledgeable and the food and cocktails were delicious. This is definitely on our go-to list.
It was my first time visiting Cucina Urbana, the service was amazing. Out waitress did wonderful recommendations.
There wine selection is amazing and at a very good price.
I really really recommend the Baked Rigatoni and the Burruta, amazing taste!
Will definately be back soon!
The food was fresh and fabulous, there was something for everyone. Our server was attentive and helpful. The food was served promptly and we had a wonderful experience!
great spot! I had made a mistake on the reservation time my bad! the manager was so accommodating they were able to get us in right away. We did have to sit at a common table, but we met some nice people and had a great time. The food is great ambiance is a little loud but that is a part of its charm!
As always the food and service was great. We arrived on time and was quickly seated.....
Tasty dinner in a very casual, noisy setting with fine service. Portions are large, and provided both of us with doggy-bags for the next day. The octopus accompanied by spicy meatballs and chicken liver pate were noteworthy. I enjoyed my pork osso bucco very much.
Met a friend for lunch, and we were able to relax and catch up. The meal options were all good, and the portions and prices were also good. We'll meet there again.
Very dark, had to use phone flashlights to see the menu. Food and service excellent. Noisy.
Absolutely loved it! The cocktails were fabulous, and the meal the followed was superb. Our waiter was so nice and friendly and had great suggestions. We'll be back!
Great food and service!!
There were four of us dining. Started with the squash app. It was ok. We were hoping for bread to accompany our wine and app. We asked later, server said you have to ask. We wanted to ask, as we saw everyone around us had bread, but we rarely saw her. 3 of us had pasta dishes that were very good, 1 had pizza that was just ok. I wouldn't go back, too many other good options.
Amazing food, amazing restaurant!!
3 couples all loved the food. Bucatini to die for. Octapus so soft and delicious - boiled/fried then grilled geez!! Got a bottle of the 2014 darioush to wash it all down yum
Amazing wine selection! Definitely would go back.
Very fun atmosphere and delicious food. Service was great too.
Food was good a little pricey because the portions are small so the value isn't great for the money you spend also the retail corkage of 9.00 is ridiculous that's why nobody was ordering bottles of wines.... We usually do but not there....
Great food. Amazing service. Cucina Urbana never disappoints.
Great service and great food. Waiter had good wine recommendation and was very attentive. Had a first date and suggestions were great.
We went after finding the restaurant on tripadvisor and reading the good reviews. Have to say we were not disappointed at all, from the cocktails to the food and to the staff it was a great evening.
CU is/was one of our fave restaurants, which is why I made reservations for my hubby’s bday. Unfortunately, this most recent visit didn’t wow us. The hubby had the whole red snapper, I had the bolognese pasta, and my girls had a couple of their kids meals. The bday boy, my hubby, said his dish was “meh”. Decent but nothing to rave about. I tasted it and agreed. The bolognese sauce on tagliatelle left much to be desired — it wasn’t sauce that tasted like it took hours to develop like other bolognese I’ve died over — and there was too much ground pork vs beef. I don’t say this often, but I make a better bolognese with Anne Burrell’s recipe. My 7 y.o. daughter’s chicken was over - charred. She ate her fries, 2 small bites of the chicken and asked me for my pasta. The waitress just asked me if I wanted it wrapped up when I told her. The food was good/decent, not great, like I remember in the past. The waitress brought out a complimentary bday dessert of cannolis, which was nice. Unfortunately, CU is no longer a fave. Perhaps it was an off night, but there are too many good restaurants out there.
Marvelous food variety including entrees which surpass most restaurants. Wine list is nice especially on Sundays. Best service of any restaurant around.
Very accommodating staff .
Warm, welcoming, efficient staff and fabulous food!
Everything was wonderful!! Until we got home! We had specified to the waiter that my husband had to be gluten free for medical reasons. We were assured that everything was, indeed, gluten free. Well, obviously something wasn’t because my husband got terribly sick when we got home. We enjoyed our dinner while we ate it but sadly, we have to take that restaurant off our list😢
The decor was beautiful. The meal was extraordinary. We loved every part of it!
Excellent food and ambience. Our server was very nice and helpful as well. Great experience and would highly recommend.
Overall, we had a great time. Everything we ordered tasted good and was of decent temperature. Service was decent and the overall atmosphere was good.
Food is amazing, service outstanding
Great minestrone soup. Would go back just for that.
