THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Cucina! Cucina! Restaurant Review: Cucina! Cucina! has a vast menu to chose from, but we tend to stick with the pizzas, ten-inch rounds with thin, cracker crusts and toppings that range from pepperoni to barbecue chicken. They also serve pasta, salads and house specialties like veal Marsala and oil-and-herb-basted Coho salmon. As to pasta, we do like the cavatelli with prawns, scallops and peas in a lime, coconut, red curry cream sauce, though we don’t think we’d find anything like it in Italy. The same is true for the wine list: cheap and not very Italian, which about sums up the whole dining experience. Kids, however, love this place; each butcher-papered table comes with a handful of crayons. It’s a great family eatery, colorful and cacophonous. We like to drop in for happy hour after shopping at the mall.
