Classic Italian Cuisine in a Family-Friendly Environment

• • •


Cucina Calandra is undoubtedly a “family kitchen”, providing classic Italian cuisine in a family-friendly environment.  We pride ourselves on quality and freshness while offering a menu that centers on southern Italian cooking.

Our main dining room is reminiscent of an Italian courtyard and features a stone deck wood-burning oven.  Your children will enjoy shaping and decorating their own pizza with Chef Henry, “the Pizza Man”!

basilAdjacent to our main dining room is the Executive Lounge, offering the same menu as Cucina Calandra in a more intimate and relaxed dining atmosphere.  It’s the ideal place to go for happy hour, to watch a sporting event, or just for cappuccino and dessert.

Reservations are gladly taken for parties of two or more for lunch and dinner.  For parties of 8 or more, an 18% gratuity will be automatically added to the bill.


All of our fresh, homemade pasta dishes and bottles of wine are offered at half price!
