Cucina Enoteca Del Mar



We made a reservation for dinner here on New Year’s Eve because this is our favorite local Italian restaurant…..2 minutes from home so no big drive on a hectic evening. My wife and I arrived a bit earlier than we anticipated so we were happy to dine at one of the huge community tables. From the get go our cheerful server Rusti was spectacular….. …making sure our dinner order didn’t take long, keeping a glass of craft IPA beer in front of me and just making us feel very welcome.


Every time we have had dinner here this place is packed to the max but we never wait long for our meals. Ryan hand delivered our beautiful Spicy Coppa pizza to our table to go with the Short Rib Pasta dish we were already sharing. We checked out the dessert menu and ended up deciding on something quite nice. My wife and I had a fabulous time chatting with other diners at our table while we enjoyed our meals. WE ALWAYS HAVE THE BEST TIME HERE !
