If you’re somebody who binge-watched Stanley Tucci trot around Italy, there’s a high probability you’ll love this spot. The dining room feels romantic, with warm orange lights, exposed brick walls, and intimate seating options. The menu focuses on multi-regional Italian food with Appalachian ingredients, combining Sicilian, anchovy-punched pasta dishes and heartier platters of roasted meats and ragu. But Cucina’s real star is the wood-fired oven, which churns out whole branzino, roast chicken, and porchetta with a crackling skin and juicy interior. Try the chef’s tasting menu if all of this sounds simply too good to pass up, and consider ending your evening with a nightcap at Contrada, which is only a quick stroll down the cobblestoned Wall Street.
