A fun, vibrant, sometimes loud (but in a good way) restaurant. People were outgoing and friendly. The tomato gravy was superb and the parmigiana excellent. We will go back again.

We continue to try restaurants that are new to us here. The restaurant is nicely designed with a long bar as you enter. Unfortunately there's no place to hang out if you're waiting for a table because the bar was COMPLETELY reserved for people having dinner there. Not a great idea I don't think. The main dining room is VERY... More

Curt's never disappoints! This was our third visit. The veal Marsala was excellent. Our waiter Frank was attentive and efficient. His wine recommendations were spot on.

This a family owned restaurant that specializes in fine Italian cooking. It combines moderately prices and outstanding cuisine. We have enjoyed both veal Marsala and piccata, which were truly delicious. The linguini and white clams was fantastic with a generous helping of tenderly cooked littleneck clams. Everyday, a different set of interesting specials are offered. My wife thoroughly enjoyed roasted... More

We go as often as we can. Food is outstanding and very very generous portions. Fresh and fabulous. Can't beat the waitstaff either.They get to know you and your preferences. We simply don't do chain restaurants anymore as local quality is abundant.

Curtis Cucina USA very authentic Italian restaurant. Many good choices on the menu, and all are delicious. Service is excellent, considering the fact that it is always busy. But you are not rushed. Best to make a reservation.

Love love love this restaurant. The owner Curt is a talented chef who will only use the finest ingredients, who takes the time and effort to make certain things homemade, like breadcrumbs to bread the eggplant parm, the arborio for his amazing calamari, the gnocchi. Most restaurants would just buy these product pre-made. His "gravy" aka pasta sauce is PERFECTION... More

This chef has won many local awards. The locals rave about his product. I don't get it....I tried a variety of dishes.....eh. I won't go back. It's unfortunate but I just didn't get "it"!
