After some research we selected Cucina 24 in the downtown Asheville business area for lunch. There was lots of construction and on street parking was tight. There were parking garages to handle the issue. Also there were handicap places and loading/drop off availability. It was...More

The freshly made pasta is great. The wine list is sufficient, and the service very good. The red sauce was intense and flavorful, but without an "after bite". My wife's spaghetti with mushrooms was exceptional.

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.
