About AR Cucina

(310) 558-8800 • 9531 Culver Blvd, Culver City, CA 90232

AR Cucina is Culver City’s newest Italian restaurant offering authentic and rustic dishes drawn from Akasha Richmond's love of Italian cuisine, and her travel throughout Italy’s many regions. During her sojourns there, Akasha immersed herself in the farming, harvest and production of Italian epicurean products, learning everything she could about each area’s cooking traditions. Fundamental to Akasha’s philosophy, AR Cucina’s offerings change with the seasons, highlighting the local California produce that plays a primary role in her style, using domestic and imported artisan ingredients that are carefully and lovingly sourced.
