I really enjoyed the food and service here at Cucina Alessa. The food was good! I would definitely go again! They even made the drinks I wanted. It also happened to be perfect weather where we sat outside on the patio which made it even more special.

We came twice. The first time the restaurant messed up a reservaction for eleven but reacted immediately and within two minutes had us situated in literally a private area. And the service kept coming. Excellent bar and wine list. A varied menu with delights around the table. We returned with guests a week later and received the same exemplary service... More

An excellent Italian restaurant run by Itallians who know their craft. The food is wonderful, the service is exemplary. Don't miss out on a great experience.

We came here to celebrate our 15th anniversary and had a thoroughly delightful experience. I had a glass of Pinot Grigio that was superb and each of the courses we shared was excellent. The bruschetta came with a just-cooked focaccia round that was thin, perfectly cooked and delicious, as was the tomato and basil mixture that we added as we... More

We had our wedding rehearsal dinner in the private upstairs dining room over Labor Day weekend. Our group included approximately 65 adults, I'd say the upstairs could hold a group of 75 to 80 max comfortably. The venue was perfect as we had a dedicated bartender and the bar area allowed for about 25 people to mingle at the bar.... More
