Order the Squash Blossoms...Order the Squash Blossoms...did you hear me? Order the Squash Blossoms! My friend and I ate here before going to the theater and the biggest problem was I ate way too much and was uncomfortable during the entire musical. Nothing like watching Wicked while turning green yourself! Seriously, the squash blossoms are so delectable and light, full of flavor, and simply one of the best appetizers I've ever had. We also shared the polenta board, which is polenta severed table side with the ragu of the day. The polenta was creamy and delightful, and the ragu is always different ours was filled with summer veggies and full bodied flavors. For our main courses I ordered the spring lamb bolognese rigatoni and my friend ordered the short rib pappardelle. I really wish I had stopped eating half way through my pasta, however it was so delicious I couldn't control myself. Cucina Urbana is totally worth putting on your list of places to mangia!

The wine lounge North Park needed. From dispensaries placed throughout the store various one ounce tasters of red and white are available, spanning from the ordinary to splashes that are usually only available in a restaurant by full bottle. When you inevitably fall for a particular taste, chances are either a full glass will be available from behind the bar or even a whole bottle to call your own. Gustative pleasure is even further increased when you try the goat cheese pizza or any other item on the menu. Made with wine in mind, the various dishes please the palate without overwhelming.
This is one of my top 3 favorite places in San Diego, if not my favorite. I love the vibe, the cocktails and the food. I went for appetizers one night and ended up eating a full meal and leaving with 3 bottles of wine from the wine cellar because our server was so great and accommodating. It's a great place to go before dinner at the Old Globe, date night or just out with friends. Be sure to make a reso ahead of time b/c it fills up quickly!
