Our menu is globally influenced with a southern twang. We are proud of our local farmers and suppliers. We use seasonal products whenever possible supporting our local economy, farmer, and artisan. We work diligently to grow this list of providers every season. A 20-year veteran food writer and researcher, one of the founding Partners of the group, Michelle Moran works to discover new producers and products to work with while also developing the company’s own heritage production of rabbit, honey and quail. She is the perfect partner for founding Chef/Owner Danny Mellman who continues to oversee the culinary group after more than a decade.
We are a part of the Lit'l Pond Hospitality Group of restaurants, which includes Cucina Rustica, Masseria Kitchen+Bar, La Pizzeria, and Blue Smoke Barbecue.
Located in Morganton, Georgia, only a few minutes from Blue Ridge Georgia, Cucina Rustica serves Country Style Italian Dishes in an Old-World Atmosphere. Cucina Rustica is a restaurant focused on a fine dining experience with Chef Danny Mellman’s interpretation of Old World Italian foods from Sicilian fish dishes to Northern Italian pasta creations and everything in between.
We often host wine dinners so be sure to check out our calendar of events.
Additionally, we have one area for meetings and groups with drop-screen conference capability and AV equipment.
