We showed up, 3 of us, on a slow Wednesday night around 745. We were greeted immediately and requested to sit at the kitchen bar. We ordered several courses and enjoyed them all. We had interaction with the kitchen which we greatly enjoyed. Do not skip on the bread!

I write a fair number of reviews and I'm a pretty critic of everywhere I go. Readers deserve the truth. I drove 11 hours to Asheville yesterday and on the way there my wife tells me to book a table at Cucina 24. Long story short, best monk fish I have ever eaten. Best pasta and best bread sticks to...

We happened on cucina 24 and were overwhelmed by the pasta for our Valentine's lunch that consisted of the best Tagliatelle Bolognes and Orecchiette ever! The service was very good, but dilatory, however, we were rewarded for the wait. We were reminded of meals in Umbria. The pastas were subtle and complex - the marks of very good chef(s). The...

After a movie we strolled into one of our favorite restaurants in Asheville and in that it was latish we split an innovative salad of celery and turnips that we scarfed down too quickly for a photo op. We then shared a white anchovy, olives, Calabrian chili pizza that was UNREAL delicious! As good a pizza as we've ever eaten.... More

This is not your run of the mill Italian food, so if that's what you're looking for, skip this place. There is an open kitchen here, so we enjoyed watching the staff working hard. The service is excellent yet slow. We had our starters out pretty quickly then it took forever to get our mains. The focaccia bread here is... More

My girlfriend and I had dinner at Cucina 24 on Monday, 30 January 2017. We walked in and were promptly seated at a table next to a window. We looked at the menus, and at first we were a bit apprehensive. It was fancy; like FANCY fancy. Our server Kim could probably see the looks of panic on our faces... More

Second visit for dinner and very good again. Sharp modern ambiance. Open kitchen. Top notch service. Was a pre-concert dinner so was glad for such service since previous night we had the worst at Rhubarb. I had a white anchovy endive salad that was fresh and creative. We both had pasta entrees that were delicious. Will go back for sure.

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

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.
