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.

We have been coming to La Cucina for 25 years. It is undeniably one of the best restaurants not only on the North Shore but also compared to other parts of the world. Tonight, we have just come from 3 and half hour dinner. Service was impeccable and the food outstanding, even when we requested items off the menu which... More

I've written a restaurant review while on vacation but thought it was time to give a shout out to a local favourite that rarely advertises and deserves attention. We were introduced to La Cucina about 15 years ago when we moved to the North Shore. Last night we returned with the friends who first took us. From that day to... More

This restaurant is located in an older building. We were seated upstairs in an area that had a vaguely musty smell. The proprietors have been at it too long: there is nothing innovative or interesting about the restaurant or the menu and the service was oriented to get us in and out as quickly as possible. Our food was below... More

LaCucinaRestaurant, Owner at La Cucina, responded to this review

I, as the owner of La Cucina Restaurant, was dismayed by this review. I have been the proprietor for 34 years and have never been more frustrated that a customer, without uttering one word of complaint with regard to service or food quality, would then write such a scathing review. We could not, as a result, even attempt to make... More
