Cucina Di Pesce
Posted by Suzanna on 12/10/2005
Unbeatable. Food is delicious and excellent value. Particulary seafood dishes. The chicken Marsala is the best I have ever tasted. Vegetarian food is excellent as well. The atmosphere is a combination of cosy and romantic . The staff are very warm and welcoming. In short, it is a 5 star restaurant with 1 star prices. Unbeatable.

This place is great, I've been here at least 15 times and it never lets me down! Service is really great. They can really accomodate large groups too! The food isn't the best italian I've ever had but its very good and a phenomenal value. The wine selection is decent and very well priced. All the lasagnas are very tasty!

It may not be the best italian restaurant in Manhattan, but I go to Cucina again and again for one dish -the seafood fettucine. Not because it is the only dish there that is good (I never tried anything else), but because I just don't want anything else. To me it is that good. I look forward to it. I have been to Cucina many many times and I have had the seafood fettucine everytime and it is always really really good.

My wife and I went to Cucina last night before going to see Stomp and we fell in love with it. I had the linguine putanesca and she had the pasta with gargonzola. Both were very good and the macaroni had a very home made flavor. We started off with the calamari appetizer which was also good, not heavy and very tender. We both had dessert as well, her the Tiramisu and I the pecan pie and an espresso. Including a bottle of San Pelligrino, teh bill was under $50. I would definetely recommend this place but get there early as it did get crowded. The servers were great, kept our water glasses full. Not the best Italian food I have ever had, but I'm not complaining.

Half of our meals were fabulous, half were just okay, but honestly, four dinners, a bottle of wine, two appetizers, two desserts, four coffees for just over 100 dollars was pretty amazing. Is it the best Italian food I ever had? Nope. But it is good and provides that cozy, I'm craving Italian comfort food feeling. Dessert was pretty above par though. Atmosphere though is really nice. We sat in the outside rear garden which was covered with ivy and really beautiful. The booth in the bar that the initially offered us was giant and seemed very cozy. There is a patio out front and what looks like a more formal, grandma's dining room area in side, but whatever mood you're craving, you'll find it here. Recommended, but not for the best Italian food you ever had (although I've been craving the seafood fettucini again...)

All the extremely good MenuPages reviews convinced me to go but unfortunately the place didn't live up to its MenuPages reputation. I will say that the service and atmosphere are good. After sitting down, I was expecting that same class from the food. The seafood lasagna I ordered seemed to have been made with frozen seafood and had very little flavor. My girlfriend had the chicken with portobello mushroom and it came out cold and dry. She couldn't finish more than a few bites.
