Great tasting gravy (sauce for you non-Italians)

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.

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.

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

Consistently good Italian food. Gluten free offerings which are important to us since we have a family member with Celiac Disease. Certainly worth a visit!

Love this family owned business (thank you Gino and Antonella)! The food is always fresh and tasty. We have our favorite dishes that we have enjoyed for over 10 years: roasted peppers and fresh mozorella, bruschetta, antipasta Italiano, pasta al pomodoro, linguine alfredo, penne with vodka sauce and gameri della Cucina. The specials are always a good bet, too. Thank... More
