Okay so I haven't tried everything here but holy crap the pasta is epic. The gnocchi is probably some of the best I have ever had and I have been to Italy. It's a small place but you go out for food right. I also love how it's so old school and also really cheap. Massive feeds too.

The pizza and pasta are great though on a busy night a bit of a wait can occur.

I live close to La Cucina and eat at this restaurant on a regular basis. The venuw itself is quite small with only a few tables which means your food comes out quicker than normal. The food itself is exceptional which is why I flet compelled to write this review. The pizzas are some of the best I've had in... More
