A truly wonderful experience...from the start of servi ce from Alyssa...who guided us thru drinks, an experienced review of the menu and details of the dishes, and a most professional, efficient, and personable approach...to the dishes themselves...the most interesting charcuterie, and great Carbonara and Bolognese. A terrific experience.

We did not have reservations and therefore got a seat at the open kitchen and it was great watching the guys working the dishes. The warm pizza oven was an extra treat. Food was delicious and I highly recommend the fresh apple tarte. Keep on rolling!

Open on a Monday night ( many closed in Asheville) and became one of our Asheville favs! Intimate lighting, modern design with exposed brick, cozy, wood fired grill, and all homemade- including pastas! Alyssa our experienced server was magnificent! She knows her product and craft well- we had an amazing experience thanks to her, the atmosphere and great food!! I... More

We hadn't been to Cucina24 in a quite a while, so we decided to try it again for dinner. We reserved a table through Open Table and we were seated promptly. After perusing the menu, we ordered two entrees (tagliatelle bolognese and gnocchi) and the mushroom appetizer. All were very good but the sautéed mostly local mushrooms were a revelation.... More

Our friends raved about Cucina 24 before we went and now we can. My wife and I met a friend from Chicago for an early Sunday night dinner. The menu changes daily, so to say you can have what we had is a crap shoot. We started with their cheese board which was delicious and of ample size to share... More

We had dinner here the night after our son's wedding. Alyssa took wonderful care of our large group. Duck breast, flat iron steak, fish, pizza and pastas were ordered by our group and most of us had the delicious seasonal pear salad. Every dish was well received and the craft cocktails were also a big hit. Thanks Cucina for a... More

My boyfriend and I went to Cucina 24 for dinner on a recent trip to Asheville. We parked in the Wall Street parking garage, and it was extremely close by there. The restaurant was pretty dimly lit, but it was fun to watch the open kitchen if you had a view of that. I tried the "Say Like the French... More

Upscale, quiet, classy restaurant with an open kitchen and a rustic vibe. Amazing homemade bread! You must try it. We had the Bolognese and the Flat Iron Steak. Both were mouth watering. Small menu, but each dish is well prepared.

We had a very nice meal. The wait staff was very well trained. The open kitchen let you see your meal being prepared. I really like that they encouraged us to share. This let us try different menu items. Four out of five were great.

Four of us went to dinner, one a native Italian. Got seated right away, was not a busy spot. Ordered wine and relaxed while reviewing menu. Ordered, so far so good. Expected bread in an Italian restaurant - since none was presented, asked waitress who went to computer to enter bread, when she returned with bread we asked if a... More

Chef & owner Brian Canipelli opened Cucina 24 in 2008 on Wall Street in the center of downtown Asheville, NC. Our kitchen is focused on melding the traditions and philosophies of Italian cookery with ingredients found in the mountains of the American South. We work closely with a number of area farms and our menus reflect produce that they bring to us.
