My first time at La Cucina, had the spaghetti carbonara and my date had the lasagna al forno. Both of them a fair portion and tasted so good. The desserts were amazing. It's a little bit over my 'meal' budget but was definitely worth it.

We are going twice this week to this neighbourhood Italian restaurant. This restaurant never disappoints and has a warm ambiance and décor that is pleasing for all of us who visit regularly. It's hard to understand how (DavidHAre) criticizes the décor. He visited another restaurant in the vicinity that is likely older in style and didn't seem to think it... More

If you want the best in Italian cuisine and 1980's ambiance you're in the right place. It delivers, at a price, V. good food, not excellent. Regulars are used to the cuisine thus the chef does not have to deliver any new dishes. The restaurant decor has an old world charm but it is tired and needs a 're-do'...

This is one of those neighborhood Italian restaurants that you will want to go back to regularly because the food is very good, the prices reasonable, the service attentive and the atmosphere comfortable. It's better than most destination restaurants that you might go to for special occasions but which leave you feeling a little disappointed either because the food was... More

We found this restaurant accidently as we were looking for another Italian restaurant we found on line. We couldn't find it but then seen this one and took a chance. We started with the beef carpaccio which we had never had before and it was incredible. My partner said his lasagna was the best he ever had. My dish was... More

A client brought me here for dinner and what a treat it was. I'm accustomed to Italian restaurants that push piles of pasta and food as their staples, but not here. The food, service and ambiance were just right. We started with a small bowl of pasta, with a light garlic sauce, just enough to tempt your palate. Then my... More

We consider this the best Italian restaurant in North Vancouver. Service is excellent - are the waiters also the owners? Food is great, genuinely Italian,,,try the Scallopini. It goes well with a glass or two of their Chianti, They can handle dinner for two or large parties, and are easily accessible.
