Welcome to CUCINA urbana, a casual Italian American Neighborhood Kitchen and Wine Shop located in the heart of Banker's Hill. The menu highlights the cuisines of various Italian regions with a distinct California ‘farm to table’ flair for which the Urban Kitchen Group has become known. Chef Joe Magnanelli is excited to preview his Italian heritage and create dishes that are fresh, simple and seasonal. Items include: antipasti, artisan pizza, pasta and piatti. Enjoy wine by the glass or visit the Wine Spectator award-winning wine shop and select a bottle from over 100 selections at retail price ($8 corkage fee applies). The space features contemporary elements and vintage artifacts creating the feel of a modern Italian kitchen combined with the history and comfort of an old rustic country farmhouse. A focus on raw, sustainable material is evident with much product coming from recycled/reclaimed local sources. <br />

"I love the energetic atmosphere at Cucina Urbana. The decor is interesting and fun and the service was exceptional. I would love to return and try more dishes. The vasi (burrata and smoked steelhead trout), suckling pig appetizer and giant meatball were delicious and must have again items. We were also extremely happy with our mains - the burger with a piece of short rib, pork chop, carbonara and short rib pappardelle. The burger came with truffle fries which was an added bonus!"

Park Kitchen is creative seasonal cuisine with nationally recognized Chef/ Owner Scott Dolich. We rely on local and sustainably grown meats and produce. The service is casual yet friendly and knowledgeable. The extensive spirit and wine selection focuses on the local talents.

"Their appetizers were amazing - we tried the chickpea fries, bread and butter (crackers were to die for), scallops and carrot cake, pork terrine sliders...they were all delicious and the chickpea fries were a must have. Our mains were really good too, but not as memorable. The beef short rib was very good. The staff is very friendly and didn't even charge us for one item that we didn't enjoy."
