Inspired by Italian tradition, our mission at Cucina Melissa is twofold. We make food that sparks creativity in your kitchen, and brings joy to those you love the most. We use locally grown, farmer’s market produce and ingredients from small family-owned farms in Italy. Let us turn your kitchen into the true heart of your home. Savor the most important moments, turn on your favorite Italian playlist and let yourself create.

“WOW!!! Honestly so so delicious Melissa. That pizza. Wow. Seriously best pizza I’ve had in LA.  The dough crisped up perfectly and the sauce. Those tomatoes!!!!!! And the pasta so creamy and luxurious. Just adored it all. Thank YOU for sharing your talent with us!”

“Just wanted to say thank you for dinner, it was so yummy, it made me feel like I was back in Milan!”

“This was so much better than I could have imagined. I wish I had taken more photos. The olive oil cake. is incredible. The crispy sugared bottom is exquisite.”

“I had a slice of the olive oil cake for dessert and now I’m having a slice for breakfast... it is SO good. If you make them again please automatically sign me up for another!”

“I am Italian, and your pizza dough is probably the best I’ve ever tasted. Bravo:)”

“Can’t wait to order again. But I may need a bottle of the pesto sauce. My 2yr old kept asking for more green pasta!”

“I feel like I know you from the imprints of your thumbs in the orecchiette!!!!”

“This is the best thing I’ve ever eaten. And the tastiest thing my oven will ever cook.”
