For this week’s local adventure linkup, we went out to lunch at Cucina Enoteca, a great restaurant at the Irvine Spectrum. It was my first time here and I really enjoyed the food; I am definitely planning on returning again soon.
We went for lunch to share a cheese plate and the fig/Gorgonzola/pecan pizza which was just absolutely delicious. Our waitress was really sweet and even though she had only been there a short time, she already knew the menu quite well and was able to make both drink and food suggestions based on our preferences. *Note: the menu is seasonal and so the items change fairly often (update: the last time I went I had the short-rib pasta and it was incredible!).
They also have a great wine selection (to drink while dining or to bring home) and they infuse their own spirits which is pretty cool.
Cucina Enoteca has locations in Del Mar and the Irvine Spectrum, and they also have a sister restaurant, Cucina Urbana in San Diego.
