Our server was excellent, pleasant and helpful. We started off with a cheese plate which was both delicious and unusual with cheeses from all over. While my husband loved his main course, mine was a really disappointing Italian dish. However it was exchange immediately w no questions asked for a small personal pizza w thin crust and delicious toppings. There... More

Cucina 24 is surely one of the best restaurants in Asheville. The room is quite pleasant and has a warm feel that felt really nice on the wintry night that we were there. The Italian food is excellent -- good choices from a modest sized menu. And there were good reasonably priced wines to go along with the food. The... More

The sharing plates ("market" on the menu) were unusual and delicious, and would have been plenty if the main courses hadn't been so tempting. We ate too much and walked out fat and happy

When all six serious food lovers in the party claim the evening's fare was 'over the top,' it demands a review. In a town of superb restaurants, Cucina 24 has joined the ranks of the best. Having dined there a few times several years ago, this year our group has made it the pre-symphony designated eatery...and last night's dinner(s) were... More

We were in Asheville a few years ago and could smell their kitchen and strolled in for dinner... and we have been coming back since. Their burrata changes frequently but is consistently amazing. Their wood fired oven is a gem for the pizzas. The pork chop entrée is a stunner. The best thing I have had here was the cacio... More

We found this on the food tour, too. We met the owner/chef, and really enjoyed everything about it. We went back for dinner a few hours after the tour, and had a great time. A gem of Asheville!

We are from the northeast, and I selected this restaurant after culling internet reviews and sites for the Asheville area in order to host a groom's dinner for my son's wedding.

This was my second time dining here and both times I've been impressed with the overall experience. The food itself borders on very good to excellent, but as an entirety I find the experience to be outstanding. The manager is very knowledgeable about an excellent wine list-- one that includes a lot of unique bottles. The bar serves excellent cocktails.... 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.
