Cucina Melissa’s mission is to empower you in your own kitchen, to nourish your soul with delicious food, and to transport you to luscious Italy, where artisan pizza and pasta are forever on the menu.

You don’t have to be a master chef to enjoy the bliss of authentic, from-scratch Italian food made in your home. I do all the sourcing, rolling, and mixing so you don’t have to. Your job is the fun part: assembling the dish, and of course, sharing the joy of a soulfully homemade meal.

“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.”
