Cucina Rustica

Cucina Rustica means Rustic Kitchen, which aptly describes the restaurant’s cuisine as well as the decor. Authentic old world doors, iron gates and windows from around the world are the inspiration of my mantra, “The doorway to the imagination awaits you.”

I was compelled to design a restaurant with the warmth of an old villa. The goal was to be able to accommodate groups and gatherings requiring private rooms while other diners could still enjoy their own sense of space.

We welcome you and as you step into our magical restaurant, background music from world-class guitarists permeate the dining rooms and assure that your fine dining experience will be as warm and special as possible. ~ Gusta i Frutti Della Vita – Enjoy the fruits of life!
