  • Cugini's: The Most Delicious Italian Food!

    by Diane52 Updated May 20, 2009

    Just off Military Hwy in the Chesapeake area we happened upon a little store front Italian restaurant called Cugini's. It is one of those little independent places you always hope is unique and delicious and this one does not disappoint. We loved it so much we ate there 3 times while we were in the area (May 09).

    Favorite Dish: The pizza has some of the best crust (not greasy) and sauce was some of the best I have ever had. The ravioli are plump and delicious. And the canoli are homemade and fabulous.

    They also have other unique dishes that are amazingly delicious like the strips of lightly breaded eggplant rolled and filled with ricotta cheese. Our other favorites were the soft warm garlic bread knots. None of us had anything we didn't find delicious. I wish I could have wrapped them up and brought them back to Cincinnati because we sure don't have any thing here that compares with Cugini's!

    Oh, and another big important thing for me were the bathrooms were very clean and the staff were friendly and efficient.

    by grandmaR Updated Apr 4, 2011

    We were warned by our guides that this marina on Deep Creek at mile 8.3 was enforcing the 'no wake' zone with video tape surveillance. Of course it doesn't matter to us because we don't go fast enough to make a wake. I took two pictures of the marina and the 400 foot dock as we went past. I have not stayed at this marina and the URL below seems to be broken.
