We make it to Asheville a couple of times each year for the arts/crafts and restaurants. Cucina 24 is like revisiting an old friend. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable and the menu is eclectic and well prepared. Our server provided good advice on a wine pairing! As always, the challenge is not enough evenings in this neat town to... More

Terrific meal here over the holidays. A repeat visit as Cucina 24 is a favorite. Three people at this meal. We shared a beet salad which was topped with goat cheese. One entree was NY strip, Bucatini and Orchietta with sausage. All Were delicious. We also had a lovely red wine, but cannot recall which one. We will return.

My wife and I enjoyed dinner here a few evenings ago. Very romantic setting, outstanding service and wonderful food. We enjoyed a pasta dish, bread and a wonderful apple pie dessert. Great choice of craft cocktails and local brews. We got to meet the chef the next day on our Eating Asheville Tour and he was really cool., He made... More

A local Yelp Elite recommended me to check out Cucina 24, an Italian restaurant in Downtown Asheville. The restaurant has a warm homey feeling to it. The menu changes daily. It's neat that on the back of then, it tells you where the items were sourced. Our party shared an oaky Chardonnay while I tried the Urban Orchard Cider Co.'s... More

It has been four years since my last visit, but I enjoyed Cucina 24 just as much as I did with a larger group. I returned with my husband and son on a Monday night after Christmas, We started with a serving of mussels for the table. They were spicy, and very plump and succulent. Our only quibble was wanting... More

There are a lot of things going for Cucina 24. The menu depends upon what the chef is able to obtain that day; this is wonderful because everything is as fresh as it can be, but it also doesn't allow you to decide what you might like to eat in advance because there seem to be no "ongoing dishes" among...

So much of the experience was good I can't quite figure out why we probably won't return right away. Service was good, food was good, ambience was good, but yet something was off for us. We will probably try once again but not in the near future. It was almost as if we had been dropped into a scene of... More

A truly wonderful experience...from the start of servi ce from Alyssa...who guided us thru drinks, an experienced review of the menu and details of the dishes, and a most professional, efficient, and personable approach...to the dishes themselves...the most interesting charcuterie, and great Carbonara and Bolognese. A terrific experience.

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.
