cucina SORELLA Kensington, San Diego, CA

cucina SORELLA is the ‘little sister’ to the wildly popular CUCINA urbana and CUCINA enoteca restaurants. Tucked away in the charming Kensington neighborhood of San Diego, cucina SORELLA is a casual eatery that features a housemade pasta-forward menu. Seasonal antipasti and large plate options also showcase CUCINA’s signature emphasis on California-inspired Italian cuisine.

CUCINA’s fresh-forward approach also lends to its extensive beverage program. Seasonal cocktail menus are crafted with an approach that is fresh, precise, balanced and direct, combining simple flavors with sophisticated technique.

The CUCINA retail wine program allows guests to hand select wines at a retail price, either to enjoy with their meal for a minimal corkage fee or for purchase to-go. The wine list is comprised of many familiar labels as well as rare and small-batch gems, with an emphasis on Italian varietals.
