Mike & Teresa know a good meal. Decades worth of experience opening restaurants across the globe has made them masters of Italian cuisine and experts at providing world-class service.

Italian to their core, Mike & Teresa are devout partners in business and in life. After their renowned restaurant, ‘Big Fish’, on the island of St. Martin, was swept away by Hurricane Irma, they decided it was time to move home to Ontario. They knew they would miss the life by the sea they’d grown to love so much, but they were willing to make the sacrifice to be closer to family. When they found this perfect little spot tucked away on the shores of Cobourg, it was as if the stars had aligned. They fell in love and the rest is history.

They’re pleased to welcome you to their favourite place to eat, drink and be merry: Cucina Urbana.


Chef Jonny Lee rises with the sun to choose the freshest ingredients and works through the night to transform them into delectable, modern Italian dishes. We’re pleased to present you with his latest seasonal menu.
