Great little restaurant in Havre de Grace

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... read 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.

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!

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.

We were visiting Havre de Grace for our anniversary and had a disappointing meal the night before at another establishment. La Cucina was recommended to us by one of the local shop owners so we gave it a shot. Wow! Were we happy we did. Great food, good service, a nice atmosphere. The only down side was the cost of...

Really good basic Italian, from soup to salad to entree to dessert. Whole wheat pasta was excellent, as was the gnocchi and eggplant parm. Fresh salads and housemade pasta fagioli. Chocolate cake and tiramisu were both excellent, too. Cozy atmosphere, great service, decent prices. Who could ask for more?
