Cucina Alessa Restaurant Review

: A “Welcome to Italy” sign should grace the doors of Cucina Alessá, an upscale yet rustic Italian bistro with intimate dining rooms and a small bar. Located right on Pacific Coast Highway in a north end neighborhood called Newport Shores, Alessá is a good place to hang out and enjoy some of OC's most authentic Napoli-inspired fare for lunch, dinner and breakfast (weekends only), with many of the items culled from family recipes. Don't miss starting with the minestrone soup before proceeding to the well-balanced Caesar salad, which is tossed with tangy homemade dressing. The Napoli lasagna dish is a standout, as are the rolled-this-morning ravioli and gnocchi. And as one might expect, there’s also a lineup of thin-crust pizzas, featuring gourmet toppings like Parma prosciutto, arugula and white truffle oil.

A must try restaurant in Newport Beach! The place is small but offers some great italian dishes, great wine selection. Whether a social gathering, an intimate date or a business affair, Cucina Alessa is the perfect place to unwind and enjoy a great evening.
Small place, with a full bar and great service, it'll make you a fan the moment you walk in. Reservation is recommended especially on the weekends.
