Media Reviews

My Wife and I are retired and have traveled the world. First in the US Navy, then as a trainer. After visiting Italian restaurants all over the world, Curt's is one of our favorites. The daily specials that Curt does are always a good choice, my wife loves the Veal piccata, she says it is the best she has ever eaten (ask for extra garlic). The wait staff is always attentive. Get reservations, it is always a good idea, the food is excellent, the service outstanding.

Italian Cucina Gastronomy

Cucina Tomato Gravy In Italian-American communities, eating a red sauce or "gravy" loaded with various kinds of meats and sausage is a beloved Sunday tradition. The recipe derives from Neapolitan ragù, but you won't find Sunday gravy in Naples. Or anything with the word "gravy" in it, for that matter.


What the Locals Say

Curt’s Cucina is a casual Italian bistro offering hearty Italian meals for a reasonable price. Curt’s accepts reservations, and we recommend making one. It can fill up pretty quickly, and after dining here you’ll understand why. Chef Curt Shelvey has been in the restaurant world since he was 10, and we’re so glad that he brought all of his experience to Southern Pines. While Curt’s is not necessarily a family restaurant, it is kid-friendly. We had a child with our group and didn’t have any issues at all. Everything on the menu is delicious, this place is truly a good spot for great Italian food. (Local Review)
