Large tasty meals at a reasonable price.

I took a group of friends there who hadn't visited before. Everyone was impressed and most took unfinished food home to enjoy the next day. Very generous portions. Authentic Italian food in a small local restaurant.

I do not understand why this is down the bottom. This is the best Italian I have had in Australia! It's absolutely delicious and I come here regularly. The prices are good and the restaurant is very relaxed and chilled. I wish they had table service for your drinks though ;)

This is second time we bought pizza here,as just moved to this area(but local to Townsville 10years we got the supreme, it's toppings galore !! It's way better than Dominos or Eagleboys, basically we would normally get 2-3 of Eagleboys or Dominos, but this place you only need one family size and it's way better quality you can actually taste...

Townsville has heaps of pizza choices, this place makes the best pizza. The topping is so thick and high quality, normally we eat two pizza between three adults, we couldnt eat one pizza it was so filling and totally yummy. Definitely worth waiting for, the pasta is super and the folded pizza - calzone is very good, but I prefer... More

Great small local resteraunt and take away. Not fine dining but more home style comfort pizza and pasta. Far removed from mass produced bland tasting food of larger franchise Italian resteraunt, this small business is authentic and delicious with generous portions. Overall great eating and friendly staff make it an enjoyable dining experience.

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.

I love Pasta, I am however a bit of condiments guy and do like a dash of tomato sauce. This Spag Bol however, is sooo tasty it is deadset perfect as it comes. The pizzas here are fresh, well topped without being overbearing and blending all the ingedients into one big blob like some traditionalists attempt. Have to try the... More

We've been going to La Cucina for years with never a disappointment. As a pizza fanatic, I have to say La Cucina's are amongst the best I've ever had anywhere! And the spinach and ricotta cannelloni is and absolute delight. The venue is a bit small and can unexpectedly get very busy, so it's a good idea to phone ahead... More
