You'll never leave this restaurant hungry and are very likely to leave with ample leftovers for the next day's lunch. I've never understood why restaurants like this don't shrink the portion sizes to what constitutes a good size meal versus colossal portions. The prices here are fairly expensive by any standards and while the quality is great, you can't help... More

They have had a "special salad" on the menu since they opened, so while it isn't really a special, its very good and I've had nothing like it anywhere in the world. Warm dressing, sweet, with cranberries, nuts and goat cheese and it is HUGE. Pasta is pretty good too, nice place! Just get there early because the wait can... More

I want to love La Cucina as the space is so inviting, the service good for the most part but the food is uneven. I have had wonderful meals while sitting at the bar where the bar tenders are the best in town. But then most recently I had a lunch where the salad was simply not very good. Why... More

This place was busy even at 8 pm on a Tuesday. Waited about 15 minutes for a table. They have a nice selection of wines by the bottle or glass. We shared a delicious special salad of the day that was $16 but big enough for 4 people. A swordfish special was very good, as was scallops and shrimp picata.... More

Our evening was exquisite! We loved the fabulous cuisine but more importantly, our waiter Matt was fantastic! He reviewed our choices for the specials. He was very thorough and passionate about the menu. Great service by Matt!!

Good wine list (we found an excellent Malbec); fresh fish, terrific Oysters Rockefeller, very nice pasta - and personable wait staff. Sherry selection was very nice, and deserts were wonderful.

We stopped by late on a Sunday evening and the place was completely full but we'd been told the wait would be worth it and it was good advice! After about a half hour wait (enjoying wonderful live music while sipping a nice inexpensive cab) we were seated. The service was excellent - our waiter was happy to offer suggestions... More

Portions were small and prices were high. Service was friendly but slow. The atmosphere was nice but the meal was a disappointment.

We had a couple of wonderful meals at La Cucina Sul Mare when we visited Falmouth during the Road Race last year and decided to try our luck again this year. We made our way through the crowded entryway and arrived at a podium manned by a couple of young women who were delightful, despite being overwhelmed by a slew... More
