Azzurra Cucina Italiana

Henderson

Featured In

Azzurra Cucina Italiana is an engaging contrast to the casual eateries that dominate Henderson's revived Water Street, giving the neighborhood a much-needed example of destination dining. The intimate restaurant seats just 30 guests, taking inspiration from Milan with sleek, contemporary design elements. The owner is also the architect and adds a few fun touches, such as portraits of his dogs against a gray brick wall. The menu consists of traditional recipes done right, with Chef Alessandra Madeira (formerly of Bratalian) perfecting each bite in the kitchen while husband Walter Ciccone works the front of the house like it's a private dinner party. Relish the simplicity of penne in vodka sauce and a tender, juicy pork chop in tangy agrodolce. An outdoor patio, lined with olive trees, offers additional seating for al fresco dining when the weather isn't too hot.  
How to book: Reservations are taken at 6 and 8 pm. Book online
