Cucina Italiana in the Spanish Flat Village Center has worked its way into the hearts and stomachs of the locals, tourists, and often large groups of resort visitors. The heart part is tickled by Chef Stefano Gusbertiac2s enthusiasm combined with the 5 foot high flames that often leap above the kitchen stove without seeming to singe his eyebrows. Sharyn Simmons is the perfect complement to the Chef with her customer-friendly approach, her wine expertise, and her ability to translate what Stefano is saying while being ready to extinguish him if he does catch fire. Stefano was born in Salsomaggiore and studied at the Institute Lovate in Parma, Italy. After creating gourmet masterpieces at The Rex II Restorante in Los Angeles and Massaac2s in San Francisco, Sharyn and Stefano moved to Berryessa in 2001. The stomach part is always more than satisfied by the delicious food in large portions. Not many folks have been able to finish a whole meal - which is part of Cucinaac2s philosophy of satisfying their clients - and take home boxes are readily available. An outdoor patio, grapevines, and a bocce court make this a pleasant place to spend time with friends.
My wife and I eat at Cucina almost every week after boating on Lake Berryessa(not in winter of course). We love it there and Stefano & Sharyn are great hosts. Food is awesome - especially Stefano's specials. He makes his own pasta fresh in the morning so if you like pasta you will like the Ravioli(stuffed differently each time). Good wine selection with several from local vinyards, and the Tiramisu is to die for.
Good stuff and we love to watch the wild turkeys, hummers, and all the finches while we eat(we like to eat outside). Great place to eat with amazing ambience.
Fantastic little restaurant in a very out of the way place. The standard menu is varied and the weekly specials are to die for. Stefano does a masterful job with classic italian dishes, and the seafood specials are wonderful. The also have lunches to go, as well as plenty of parking for vehicles towing trailers in case you want to stop off after a day on the lake.
