This place is just off the freeway and if you aren't careful, you will find yourself getting back on the freeway when trying to find the parking lot. )Parking is available by accessing the street before the restaurant.) But well worth the loop on and off the freeway if you miss it. We dropped in on our way back home and the food, service, and atmosphere are well worth finding this place.

We just had dinner there last week and it was such a nice surprise. We've driven by practically every day but I had never stopped in. It was very crowded on a Saturday night but we got the last table in the front. My wife and both loved our meals (i had the non-breaded eggplant parm and my wife the penne in pink sauce). We finished the meal with one the ice-cream truffles which was solid but we were pretty full from dinner. Also, they were happy to provide non-garlic rolls for us. I had an Italian wine that was superb but i can't remember the name of it. I'm looking forward to going back. My new favorite Italian in the valley though i guess its not that new.

Cucina Bene is one of my favorite restaurants. I eat there on a regular basis. In fact, next weekend, my family will be celebrating my Mom's 75th birthday there, with 30 guests. My parents also chose the restaurant as a selection for their Gourmet Dining Club. The food is excellent, and I particularly love the fish. The service is first rate, and the mediterranean decor is charming. The prices are appropriate for the quality of food, service and atmosphere you'll enjoy. I highly recommend Cucina Bene to anyone looking for a delicious meal in an upscale, but not stuffy, restaurant.

I read the reviews after I had dinner there last week and i wished i had read it before. It was way too over priced for the amount of food given, quality of food, and service. My friends and i walked in and were not greeted, although a gentleman in regular clothing did walk up to us and simply looked at us, didn't even bother to say hello but said "are you looking for something?" where is the customer service? the cooks in the kitchen were looking at my friend inappropriatley and come on $17 for a piece of meat which was hard to cut and a handfull of vegetables that were not fully cooked? i wouldn't have minded paying that much for good food whic this was definatley not! is anybody else bothered at thier prices?!

We were a party of 21 celebrating son's graduation. The restaurant was full for lunch with many other large parties. Others had large parties as well. The service was outstanding. Our glasses were never empty and all that we asked for was delivered with speed and courtesy. The busboys were numerous and paid attention to every detail. The waiter was courteous and provided excellant suggestions. The food was received hot and prepared to our specifications. All in our party were served at the sametime. We all loved the food from 7 year old to 92 year old.-majority were in their 50's and 18 year old boys. We would definitely return for Sunday dinner and celbrations. A true GEM.
