Veal Osso Bocco

La Cucina typically does a Pork Osso Bocco, but to my surprise in January before the blizzard the chef owner prepared Veal. Same time consuming made with love preparation. Same ginormous size (took half of it home due to sheer volume, and depth of flavors and taste. I/We go 4-6 times a year and I... read more

La Cucina Sul Mare is a great place to meet friends sit at the bar and have a great dinner! Today, I noticed they were open for lunch on a February chilly Sunday. We had a Fabulous lunch - I enjoyed the Seafood scampi, it was delicious. Fresh seafood and plenty of fresh vegetables. All the staff is great! Owners... More

The weather permits going to the beach so head to LA Cucina for a breath of summer. The seafood minestrone was a delight to the senses and palate. The Cesare salad was fresh and flavorful. And the lobster roll succulent. Our wait person was delightful and made our experience one to remember. Stop in for a quick lunch or lingering... More

This restaurant is for you. I would almost say this is a typical Italian restaurant, if not for the flat tasting non descript red sauce. What can I say? I'm a jersey girl and know my way around an Italian kitchen. On the plus side we had a very professional, friendly server -wish I remember her name- and the calamari... More

We've been vacationing in Falmouth for years at our timeshare on Surf Drive, so we thought this would be the year we'd try this restaurant. We (two of us) stopped in at 5PM on 12/30/14 on a frigid night, and the server tried to seat us at a table for two in the front window. We felt it would be... More

I thought I'd try it again since some people said "its better" Well it's NOT. The lunch menu had a lot of sandwiches, and same old pasta. The ravioli were gummy and cold,the spaghetti sauce bland. The eggplants was soggy and cold, we asked for bread and had to wait forever. In the mean time a table if 4 who... More

Six of us celebrated the New Year at one of our favorite restaurants here in Falmouth. The food and service at La Cucina has consistently been great.... And we were not disappointed on NY eve. Despite the full house and busy kitchen, our server was able to keep up. Our salads and wine arrived in a timely manner. La Cucina... More

We used to eat here a few times a year when it was about 1/3 the size and a true mom and pop operation. A couple of years ago they bought the store next to them and more than doubled in size. It went from incredible to "I guess I really don't want Italian tonight". Our first mistake was eating... More

My wife went here for a late lunch. She had her favorite in every Italian restaurant, Chicken Alfredo, which she said was excellent. I had the one of the day's specials, Seafood Minestrone. Now this wasn't just a cup or a bowl of soup. This was a 12 inch skillet full of of the best minestrone I have ever tasted... More

This restaurant is a classic in Falmouth - you cannot get in in the summer - but now, in the winter, there is space (at least during the week!) and it is so worth going. I like to ask for the fish on a salad - yummy; or the wonderful salads - and the pasta - esp. the lasagna -... More
