The food is fantastic, price is right, and the people are friendly. Vita Cucina is the best. Highly recommended.

We stopped here and just got a couple of pastries. They have a big menu, and we didn't try anything else. It was just ok, nothing spectacular. Service was good, but was a little on the expensive side. If we have time, we will try...More

The meal was delicious here. We thought it was a restaurant when it is really just a bakery and they do extra food items there. My wife had a 4-cheese pizza and I had the Susan's. Both were delicious and I had a side salad...More

Very conveniently located and easy to find. The Cuban sandwich was perfect. Prices seemed a little high when looking at the menu, but after seeing the amount of food we got and the quality, I had no problem with the price.

The pizza here is really good but way over priced for what you get. The wine is over priced too. They have sandwiches and other items that are delicious but their prices are so high.

Finley made it to Vita Cucina and liked it. It was clean and smelled so good. The food and pasterys we're to die for. It's really the only bakery left in town. I recommend this bakery to anyone.

The salad and everything is very tasty here. Fresh made cookies and much other staff to eat. Just the coffee could be improved.

Culinary Institute of America trained chefs/owners Devon & Michelle Morgante. We love to cook and bake everything from Michelle’s quiches, morning glory and bran muffins baked daily to my house cured and smoked pastrami, ham, turkey and bacon. We bake all of our own breads: focaccia for our turkey, Cuban, breakfast sandwiches and specials; I also bake what we call an artisan loaf which is slightly sour and a sour dough loaf that is made from a starter I created using blackberries from my backyard. The menu change weekly and reflects the cravings of the cooks. On Thursdays and Fridays nights after 4:00 pm we serve pizzas. Top your pizza pie with some of our homemade topping like: pesto, garlic white sauce, sausage (yes, I grind my own sausages), roasted garlic, roasted mushrooms, smoked chicken, roasted pork and locally made Rumiano cheese. Thank you for your time
