What great pasta! We had the rigatoni and spaccatelli pasta dishes and couldn’t finish. They were awesome! Cheese board to start was equally good and dessert of almond cookie with strawberries just made the entire experience that much more rewarding. A must if you’re in...More

As we waited to be seated, a gentleman who was leaving said in effect, if you are looking for Italian food, go elsewhere! He was certainly correct. My pasta tagliatelle bolognese was very poor: it was almost tasteless and dry lacking in an adequate serving...More

Wandered in and was lucky to get table. Great menu, not too big, but plenty of choices. Emphasis on local ingredients, open kitchen, bustling but waitstaff always available and not rushed. Sales andnpastas were delicious. Next time will try tasting menu with group.

As indicated by others there is street parking which opens up a bit in the evenings and a City parking garage. If you are staying in a downtown hotel as I did then the restaurant is easy walking distance.

Go right to the garage. It's inexpensive - I think the first hour is free. Even if there is parking on Wall St itself, which happens rarely, the street is quite narrow and your car is at risk. In my opinion.

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.
