Good, authentic, italian restaurant

Great pizza, salads and italian dishes. Can see and smell the kitchen from the dining room. Homey atmosphere and very friendly staff.

Do not let the exterior of the restaurant fool you. In a small city with historic building code restrictions, sometimes you cannot do what you would like because of the codes. Once inside it is like walking into a friend's kitchen. What I like about Gino and his family is that once they recognize you, they never forget your name.... More

To their credit, the pizza is not bad in La Cucina. It's passable. But the rest of it--the part that makes a restaurant and not just a pizza joint--is simply not worth a visit. The pastas were overcooked; the lasagna was a gooey mess, and the worst part is that here on the Chesapeake, flooded with crabs, their crab cake... More

First visit today for lunch. Great food, beautifully decorated. Friendly, pleasant server. Going back next week for our 55th Aniv. dinner. One of the best Italian restaurants we have been to. Italian rum cake and cannoli were delicious with a great cup of coffee.

La Cucina was recommended by some friends, so we tried it out with them. Nice, but not great ambience. The food was very good and the service was excellent. This is a family owned restaurant and they are visible and active in the operation. Our server was one of the family members and she was terrific, made us all feel... More

Lunch (spaghetti with olive oil and garlic) was exactly what I needed on a cold March day - and much better than the average American Italian restaurant usually provides.

Can't beat the pasta dinners, they are awesome. The pizza is top notch. Am particularly fond of the deep dish.

Went out on a Monday night and found most of our favorites closed. We decided to go back to La Cucina in Havre de Grace and we are Glad we did! Exceptional food across the board! My wife really enjoyed the Positano Special with very tasty shrimp and crab and fresh asparagus. I tried an old favorite Veal Marsala and... More

They only want your money. They have many past huge failed businesses in the Baltimore area. And owe creditors hundreds and hundreds of thousands of dollars.
