Cucina di Pesce is the type of comfortably lived-in Italian restaurant that local New Yorkers love. Our focus on seafood has turned this city of foodies upside-down.
Our flavors are absolutely contemporary. We pride ourselves on offering both the best service and freshest ingredients in Manhattan on a budget! From the pasta to our enormous spinach ravioli to succulent sun dried tomato fusili – our plates seduce the tastebuds of even the most well versed critic.
Our seafood lives up to its reputation: sea scallops, scampi, salmon and much more are delivered on a daily basis. Stop by to enjoy unlimited mussels at our weekday happy hour.
Good food, great service, fantastic drinks and unbelievably inexpensive.

“Cucina di Pesce, way back in the 1920′s and 1930′s was a casino run by Charles “Lucky” Luciano, the chairman of the Mafia Syndicate. It later became a mob social club called the Stage Bar run by Vincent Ciraulo aka “Jimmy Second Ave.” of the Genovese family. Though Cucina is no longer “connected” it maintains the low-lit charming and seductive atmosphere of a mob haunt, and the Tony Bennet and Frank Sinatra playing at the bar don’t hurt either!”
