I’ve been enjoying Cugini’s delicious food for many years. I recommended it to two of my cousins who’ve never been there before. We had a lovely cousins’ night this past Friday, and one of them remarked that it was the BEST Shrimp Fra Diavlo that she ever had! Great service and most importantly we were not rushed.

Food and service was very good. We enjoyed our meal. The problem came when the check arrived. To my surprise a credit card charged was added as I was not paying by cash. Bummer. This should have been disclosed early on. I usually carry little cash and I had to use my credit card to pay the bill. Most likely will not return to Cugini.

Cugini is a pizzeria with a restaurant room for casual dining. I overall liked my experience. The food is very traditional and I would score them above average. The service was prompt and pleasant. I had an excellent bottle of Brunello. The atmosphere is family friendly and the prices were very good. I would rate them as an excellent value. I would recommended to a friend. Foodies will not appreciate the traditional cuisine.

The service was excellent AND they SMILED! You don't get much of that these days. My eggplant was absolutely delicious and my husband enjoyed his chicken piccata. A steady flow of people is one sign that it's good, the delicious food was another. This was only our first time here but, we will be back.

Nice Dining experience. Delish baked clams with plenty of sauce for dipping interesting bread. Veal parm and Francese were served hot and accompanying house salad was fresh

Cuigini’s has become our go to place to grab dinner. It’s comfortable. Service is always great and the food is always satisfying. Their bread basket is amazing and that’s something one doesn’t always speak of.
Just try it. You’ll like it

The dining area is ok, a bit tight and noisy when crowded. The food is good , and plentiful. The staff is friendly and accommodating. Making reservations online didn't seem to be checked as the hostess had no idea we booked a time slot, so i'd confirm seeing before you go especially on a weekend.

Cugini's is a favorite restaurant of mine and my husband's. We come here quite often. It's very cozy. The food is always good and so is the service. We know the staff and we're always seated promptly. We've brought friends who don't live in the neighborhood, and they make the drive because the food, ambience, and service is so good.
