I keep forgetting I live close to this great neighbourhood pizza place. I like simplicity in pizza and Cucina does not dissapoint: crispy thin crust, just the right amount of tomato sauce and cheese, spicy oil on the side. The decor hasn't changed much over the years. In the winter the place is intimate, with the wood-burning over warming things... More

It's raining and we ducked into this restaurant. Just had the Bruschetta and now the "All dressed" pizza. Food is excellent. Young waitress is very pleasant and speaks very good English.

It was the month of May and the weather was just getting better; so a terrace with nice trees decorated in Christmas lights looked enticing after an afternoon walk on St-Laurent. There was absolutely nothing special about what we ate; the pasta was average, the pizza was average, but the bill was just a tad above average (not to say... More
