We were in Asheville over Easter holidays. We received great personal reviews for Cucina 24 so we had high expectations. We were disappointed, however, in the ambience, service and food.

I'll be honest, the menu was a little intimidating, and I cook a lot. However, the heritage pork and charcuterie appetizer combo was excellent.

Tonight's dinner @ Cucina24 was a disappointment. It has become apparent that the overarching issue with Asheville is that the demand far exceeds the supply. And this goes for restaurants as well as other service providers and resources (parking). At Cucina24, even with a reservation,...More

Typical renovated industrial interior with brick walls, exposed ductwork etc. Menu mercifully brief but well executed. Good cocktail/wine list. Probably Asheville's best Italian

Amazing food in a cozy restaurant. The kitchen is open and you can watch the chef and his crew working like demons. Don't miss it if you love great food and wine. Service was also very good.

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.
