THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Cuccina Leone Restaurant Review: This sleek and refined-but-neighborly Italian bistro bustles with Bonnie Brae locals and hungry Cherry Creek shoppers. What lures them here? Cucinnas impressive array of grilled meats, pastas and wood-fired pizzas, all crafted with an inspired hand and just-picked ingredients. Every neighborhood should be so lucky to have such a treasure in its midst. A wonderfully charred pork chop leans against a pillow of divine garlic mashers, surrounded by a poached pear slivers in a pool of gorgonzola cheese sauce. Dreamy. Penne Giovanni is blessed by a spicy red pepper cream sauce, its milky richness cut by piquant heat and zing. Beef tenderloin Napoleon is matched with roasted peppers and polenta, the ahi tuna is dusted with coriander and floats on a plum-ginger sauce. Finish the spread with espresso and a fruit pizza. Cant get enough in one visit? Hit the houses hugely popular deli and load up on primo to-go fare and deli delights.
