culinary adventure + authentic hospitality + dynamic design
restaurant + wine shop

Dining and design form the perfect union at San Diego’s highly acclaimed CUCINA urbana, a California-inspired Italian kitchen and wine shop, located in the heart of Bankers Hill since 2009. The restaurant boasts comfort and familiarity, welcoming diners to a country farmhouse with the added whimsy of a contemporary art installation.
