THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Chianti Cucina Restaurant Review

: Cucina began as the smaller more casual sibling of Chianti and quickly became a formidable restaurant with a loyal following of its own. The visuals are great---you can watch dishes for both restaurants being prepared in the open kitchen and hustled off to tables. The biannually changing menu appeals with such selections as juicy veal osso buco and several satisfying pastas and risottos. As befits the best Italian eateries, simple dishes such as thinly seared tuna and luscious veal chops are offered. Get a table up front for superb people-watching while you dine.
