There is no flexibility with the menu at all. Our dinners were good but would have been better if we could have ordered what we wanted. Example: Pizza with sausage NO, the menu offers a cheese pizza but you cannot add sausage. The menu offers...More

Our service was good as well as the food. However we found that pretty much everything is sold a-la-carte. Meals were a bit expensive for the amount of food you received. I had eggplant and it was very good but for $22 it was a...More

This place is superior to anything we have had and we get around. Beginning with the staff (Rachel is so knowledgeable). The food takes a while to prepare, as it should. Sauces are outrageous. Veal prepared just right and not over cooked like many places....More

Cucina Rustica is one of the TOP places to go in Blue Ridge, Georgia for great food--in fact, they're the only place in town for some real authentic Italian food. The "new" owners do not use frozen ingredients, etc...most of it comes from their nearby...More

In 2017, we grew our family again, adopting two well-established and well-loved restaurants. Morganton-based Cucina Rustica and La Pizzeria at Cucina Rustica were opened by longtime friends of ours years before we arrived in Blue Ridge. When they were thinking of retiring, we saw the opportunity to own the land where our restaurants would live. So we purchased the two Italian-style concepts and brought in Danny’s touch with fresh ingredients and classic European chef training. Cucina Rustica is focused on a fine dining experience with Danny’s interpretation of Old World Italian foods from Sicilian fish dishes to Northern Italian pastas and everything in between. La Pizzeria at Cucina is your classic New York-style pizza place. A place where everyone knows your name and what you like on your pie. We love that – we both grew up with those classic places in our hometowns in Connecticut and Philadelphia.
