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.

Just coming back from Venice and Rome my family decided to take me out for dinner at La Cucina. Great food and great service. Enough said.

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

I'd heard a lot about this resturant as it's been around for years, it has a great reputation so I had dinner here with my girlfriends recently. Was really impressed by the service and the food was delicious! I had the lasagne, which was amazing and the girls had the gnocci (one said it was the best she'd had!) none... More

La Cucina Restaurant is consistently the BEST restaurant in all of Vancouver. The food is always spectacular; my favourites are the Fiorentina 32oz steak for two and the rack of lamb (a specialty order)! Service is always friendly and extra attentive, while the ambiance that La Cucina provides makes you feel like you are in Venice. This restaurant beats all... More

Recently had dinner here for six for a special occasion. The service and the food was all over the map for a fairly expensive and established restaurant. We wanted a special dinner where we would enjoy a great meal, splurge and be looked after. We had to wave down the waitstaff to ask for things throughout our meal - ordering... More
