It is with a bittersweet sentiment that we bid farewell to cucina SORELLA. For owner Tracy Borkum, she holds on to 28 years of memories, celebrations commemorated, and meals shared within these walls.  The spirit of Kensington Grill and CUCINA’s “little sister” will linger in our hearts as places that brought joy to countless patrons and Urban Kitchen alumni throughout the years.

We are forever grateful to those of you who supported us along the way!

CUCINA sorella’s contemporary Italian cuisine is prepared with a focus on California seasonality and the bounty of local farms. Combined flavors of Italy with the organic freshness of Southern California is emblematic of CUCINA’s from-scratch menus.
