A Southern California-based hospitality collective where dining and design form the ultimate union to deliver restaurants and wine shops that inspire the palette and evoke the senses.

The CUCINA family of Italian restaurants is one of Southern California’s first retail wine shop inside a restaurant concept. Our menus showcase Italian flavors married with the diverse bounty of California, allowing local sources to inspire culinary direction.

Our talented chef teams are dedicated to creating inventive, seasonal dishes, while running an ambitious in-house program, including house made charcuterie and sausage, cheese, artisanal breads and pastas made from scratch.

Dynamic, diverse and fun, our wine program features 200+ labels from around the world, with an emphasis on Italian and California varietals.  Our goal is to share value with our guests, and celebrate those behind the label: on the farms and in the wineries.
