SO GOOD

If I had to go to one restaurant and it was between the Cheesecake Factory, La Cuchara, or an Italian Bakery, Id find a way to go to La Cuchara 3 times

There was plenty of space for my coworkers and I, the service was excellent and the staff was very friendly! The food was absolutely delicious, there was something for everyone!! I will most definitely be back within the week- too good to stay away!

La Cuchara has the best sweets! Their meals are great as well. They are owned by a family and they are extremely warm and welcoming! A must visit!

Everything is so delicious!!!! Please understand this before going there. The place is small and everything is very high in calories. I go the morning before I leave the country so that I can leave with a few extra pounds, the beverages both hot and cold are all very tasty. You can't find anything that isn't!

Tried the location at Bella Vista Mall on a Wednesday at noon time. Everything looks soooo delicious but too bad it didn't taste the way it looked. Walked out of there disappointed and thought it was very expensive. $42 usd for 3 desserts, 2 bottles of water and 1 cappuccino.

I've reviewed this restaurant before for its desserts but ate there this past week for lunch with some family members. I had a hot ham & cheese sandwich with cheddar and another cheese possibly American and it was delicious. Cheddar cheese isn't common in the DR. For dessert, we had the pyramid a la mode at the suggestion of my... More
