Loved everything about this Italian restaurant. It was like finding a diamond in the rough. Out in the middle of no where with amazing food and top notch service!

Visited for the first time this evening. Since restaurants are packed out on Mother's Day we decided to celebrate early. Excellent choice. The pasta was freshly made and cooked to perfection. The shrimp scampi was extremely good. My husband had the lasagna and was impressed. The only reason I did not rate this as excellent is that the lasagna, while... More

My mother and I came for to celebrate her birthday in April. She has been coming to Cucina religiously for her birthday celebrations in the Spring and Anniversary dinners in the Fall. This food had sentimental and emotional value to her and our family. It was her first birthday since my Father’s passing. All week she talked of her clams... More

New owners have MURDERED this place that was once the best Italian food on the planet. The service was awful - the waitress had zero knowledge of the items on the menu. They've done away with the complimentary house Italian tossed salad which was amazing - we often would go for the salad and bring our entrees home. The Veal... More

We visited about 2 weeks after new owner took over. So I will preface that things are probably still a work in progress. Large wine selection. Seemed on the high priced side. No 'house " wines. Call me old fashioned, but I still like to see the bottle my wine was poured from. This was not done. A large somewhat... More

Been here many times and usually well pleased. Open under new mgt so I gave them time to settle in. From the start I was disappointed. The wonderful salad that was included is now a la carte and $6. Uh oh. The veal rustica is not anything like the Vitello Rustica from before. Over cooked and bland. Also had mashed... More

Cucina Rustica has a very good atmosphere. However, after returning here for the first time in several years, we were disappointed. My wife enjoyed her mussels, but my chicken parmigiana was disappointing. The chicken patties were very thin, over cooked. Not what I expected. Also, the bread they serve before the meal is a very small quantity. I know there... More

Chef Danny and Michelle have taken Cucina Rustic to the next level. Farm fresh ingredients are obvious when you taste Chef Danny's creations. Outstanding 5 course meals. Jazzy was our server and she topped off the perfect night. Could not have asked for anything more from Jazzy. A definite do-over for my wife and I....

While visiting in Blue Ridge, Georgia, six of us ate dinner at this restaurant on 04/06/2017. The food we ordered was excellent. Everyone was pleased with their orders. The service was good and the prices were reasonable. The waitress was willing to split two orders also: 1) a large Caesar Salad and a Steak Filet meal. We visit this area... More
