Nashua NH

Has anyone been to Cucina Italia near the building 19 in Nashua? Do they have a wine list?

  1. Here's a thread from earlier this year:

    They do have a wine list.

    1. Is that the one in the little strip mall across the street? It's been there awhile now? Maybe 2-3 years? If so, I've been. It's pretty good. Everything cooked to order. My nephew really likes it and goes a lot.

        It's called Cucina Toscana, the owner is from Florence, and the food is very good.

      2. Thanks and what are the recommendations for best Italian in Manchester NH?

          Piccola Italia has had a serious downturn in quality recently--my rec would be The Way We Cook on upper Elm Street. Not truly Italian--they also serve Greek dishes--but the food and service are very good.

        2. I enjoy cucinabut,.

          I'd also recommend:
 when you are in the area.
          Lucia's gnocchi are the best around, never had a bad meal there.

            Lucia's is a true Chow find--it's like eating at someone's home. A little off the beaten path, and don't be put off by the tattoo parlor next door!

              I'm so sad to hear piccola's has had a downturn!!! I loved it there, the ceaser salad tableside was delicious, just had one in Cabo San Lucas, and it wasn't nearly as good as piccola's!

          2. DH and I really enjoy Cucina Toscana. But you have to be ready for a long evening. Service is friendly, but sssllllllloooooooowwwwwww. The food is worth it though. The bread and dipping oil is excellent. We usually get the cold antipasto platter to start....excellent. We've also had the eggplant app which is also excellent. For main courses, I enjoy the risotto and the pasta bolognese (sp?) DH gets a haddock dish that has shrimp on it. The only thing I didn't really enjoy was their pesto. DH's is much better. But overall, it's great food.

              Where exactly is Cocina Toscana?

              1. re: lexyboo

                Off Rt. 3 (Amherst St or 101A), head west. It's on the right in a small strip mall, across the street from building 19. I've only been once and loved it too, I am one who also agrees about Piccola downturn (twice now disappointed).
