We are officially another week closer to OC Restaurant Week, which means it’s time for another OC Restaurant Week Spotlight. Be sure to look at previous posts to learn about Pizzeria Ortica and Tommy Bahama’s Island Grille. This time the spotlight is shining on Cucina Enoteca.
Cucina Enoteca is one of the new restaurants to open at the Irvine Spectrum, and it has already made quite a splash. From offering weekly specials to “Social Saturdays” and unique pizzas, the restaurant is definitely making it’s mark.
For OC Restaurant Week the restaurant is offering 4 different menus to choose from, depending on how much you feel like spending. This is a great concept because if you aren’t feeling like a heavy meal, you can choose a lighter option at a cheaper price.
On the lunch front, you can choose a soup or salad with a panini or pizza for only $15, or if you want something a little heartier, you can get a soup or salad and one of the dinner entrees for only $20! Either way, lunch is definitely a steal.
For dinner, the same concept applies. Choose an appetizer, pizza and dessert for $25, or choose an appetizer, entree and dessert for $30. For dinner, I highly recommend the pear and gorgonzola pizza or the jidori chicken. Both are excellent dishes.

There are 3 dessert options to choose from on the dinner menu, but the favorite of this bunch is definitely the zeppole, aka Italian fried doughnuts. You can see the entire restaurant menu over on the OC Restaurant Week’s website.
Cucina Enoteca is a definite must stop this year for OC Restaurant Week. Whether you go with a pizza and salad or try an entree and one of their tasty appetizers, you are bound to have a delicious meal.
