We were looking for a good Italian restaurant and we found it. Our pasta was delicious. There is a wood burning oven and the pizza looked really good. Salads were also very good. We can't wait to go back for the pizza the next time we are in town.

Having dined throughout the world, I have decided what this restaurant radiates - passion. Our server, Claude, was focused on the 5 of us having an exceptional experience. He had good suggestions, appeared when needed, and attentive to every detail. The food was a perfect match for the service - meals included rigatoni bolognese, double cut pork chop, and pizza....

i was a bit apprehensive walking into this restaurant. it's very avant garde, apparently a "happening" place -- not our cup of tea. but we were pleasantly surprised by very, very good food and service. seated across from the open kitchen, we each ordered oysters on the half shell. they were fresh, delicious, shucked perfectly and flavored with a subtle...

The service and food are excellent! Ask to sit @ the Chef's bar so you can watch the food being prepared. But be warned, you won't be able to pass on dessert!

Over the years visiting Asheville, I have never repeated a restaurant due to the high quality of choices, however I plan to change that by going to cuchina 24 again very soon. I went in without a reservation with a friend and we had great service even on a busy Saturday night. The menu is very unique from the appetizers... More

This is a loud and trendy spot, and the food was excellent, although the menu selections are limited. Service was efficient and the cost was appropriate for the quality of food. I found their initiative to help homeless dine an admirable one and it would be a reason I would support this business if I lived here.

We were looking for a nice place to have dinner and just happened that my husband wanted Italian food. We arrived without reservation and we were seated right away and the service was fantastic.

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.
