Great little hole in the wall!

This place looks like it can't decide if it is a sub shop or a restaurant but the food is consistently good. I can totally recommend the chef salad though they charged me extra for extra salad dressing which really shouldn't happen when the extra portion was about one ounce! I have been here... read more

Love, love their pizza! I am a native New Yorker and New Jersey resident so I know pizza. La Cucina is the best in the area. Plus they do pizza and other Italian favorites Gluten Free. Yeah! I have a grandaughter that must have gluten free and La Cucina fills the bill best.

The food was excellent but we spilled the small salad dressing container that came with the large salad. We asked for a replacement and were surprised to see a $0.50 charge on the bill for the replacement salad dressing. I would have expected it to be replaced at no charge as a courtesy.

The food is unbelievable so i will have to give the place a 5 star review. Our server however was rude, disrespectful, and decided to eat her own lunch a few tables away from us and ignore us for quite awhile. The Caesar salad and cheese-steaks were amazing. I also highly recommend getting a cannoli. They give you very large... More

La Cucina is the real deal! I had no idea we could find top notch authentic Italian food with one of the best pizza pies in the country (I'm a devoted and discerning pizza lover). This family run gem brings it home from Napoli Italy with warmth, good food and outstanding service. Food was fresh, hot and delicious. Everyone was... More

Chicken Sambuca was outstanding. Sausage and peppers pasta dish also great. Yes, prices are a bit high, but for authentic Italian food, worth every penny. Nice wine list, as well. Service was attentive but not hovering.

Service was very good. A bit pricey but the selection of authentic Italian food prepared personally by chef Antonella is outstanding. Nice wine selection too. Give it a try, it is the best Italian food south of the New Jersey.

This is the real deal. Family owned, family run. The food was superb, the family delightful. Some of the very best Italian food I've had in a LONG time. Forget the chains. They can't hold a candle to this wonderful restaurant.

I want to like this place - an independent restaurant in a great town. But $5 for a Caesar salad that obviously has supermarket dressing and not particularly fresh greens? $7.50 for kids menu ravioli that has canned sauce with only 3 (probably frozen mass-produced) raviolis? The garlic bread was almost tasteless. The calzone on the other hand was quite... More

We decided to have lunch at La Cucina in Havre de Grace as we were up for Italian food. A waitress greeted us with a welcome smile and facilitated our request for a booth. My partner and I ordered the same lunch, namely the small Caesar salad and a lunch size cheese ravioli. The Caesar salad was unremarkable as it... More
