Enjoy a traditional Italian coffee bar while creating an authentic menu of Italian pastries and dishes.
Cucina di Rosa begins the day providing our customers with a selection of distinctive coffee roasts to choose from at our welcoming coffee bar. A variety of pastries accompanies these special roasts, with lunch and dinner menu items consisting of several authentic Italian cuisines with daily specials. A selection of beer and wine is available joining our coffee bar throughout the evening. For entertainment, visitors are welcome to enjoy the multitude of unique musical guests joining us regularly throughout the month.
Our vision is to bring back a little bit of Italy back to our community with a café where people come to meet for one of our special coffee roasts, original specials, or homemade pastries and gelato. It’s to provide our community with a warm and welcoming place for friends and families to enjoy authentic fare, share a coffee or dessert, and get back to the social atmosphere of face-to-face conversation. Located in a quaint part of the city, our delicious menu and welcoming environment provides our visitors and neighbors with a locally owned business to experience.
A destination that welcomes travelers and neighbors alike, offering a relaxing environment to enjoy great company and fantastic dishes.
We have a dedicated side room for our patrons who prefer a little fun and games with their meal! With a full set of Lucky Street Gaming terminals, we are prepared to deliver you a night of fun and food!
Start your morning commute with a fresh brewed cup of Caffé Americani, fruit tea, or chai tea.
Enjoy a number of savory panini, pranzi, pizzas and more for your afternoon to dinner pick-me-up.

Rick and Thom are laid back and chill with jazz tunes on an awesome friday night when you just want great Italian food like your momma used to make and upbeat cool jazz music. I highly recommend this place!

The food is so good! Large portions-makes great leftovers! The prices are very reasonable!! Will definitely return! The eggplant parm is so good.
– Jenny Paap
My Salsiccia Panino Italian Sausage with peppers and onions was delicious. I was offered extra vegetables when I said I would rather skip the bread. Saved my calories for Peach nectar and Prosecco yum. My friend had Colazione egg omelet in a panini.
