MOST delicious lasagna!

New to Hanover, never heard of this place till it moved near my house (Grandview Plaza). VERY impressed with the food. I had lasagna which was out of this world. My husband had the peppers and penne which he raved about (but didn't share with me so I can't vouch for it personally). My son had... read more

This used to be one of the best reasons to visit Hanover, but oh, how the mighty have fallen! The new location is less than a couple months old, and the quality of the food is already second-rate. We started with a zucchini friti. What we got was tasty, because hot zucchini and marinara sauce is good. The zucchini pieces... More

The atmosphere was very nice. Plenty of parking and we were warmly greeted by the hostess. Our waiter, Maddie was friendly and congenial. Lafamlia appetizer-nice blend of choice of three appetizers-I recommend Armando's zucchini! Fantastic. My friend loves the bruschetta, too. Eggplant Parm- was very good. The sauce delicious. We tried a few desserts, too and shared them. I loved... More

This is by far my favorite place to eat in Hanover! The food is always great and the staff are always very kind. Also you have to try the focaccia it is amazing! Lastly, La Cucina also offers amazing family deals. All you have to do is order your meal from home and come and pick up a full family... More

We were fans of this restaurant when it was in North Hanover. So when it reopened on Baltimore Street we wanted to try it out. We were not disappointed. We had lunch with friends and the food was very good. What makes this place excellent is the attentive owner who takes the time to talk and discuss the food. He... More

New Location on Baltimore Street. Same delicious food. BYOB. Enjoyed lunch , had the clams in a savoy white garlic sauce. Save some of your fresh baked bread to soak up every bit of the sauce. We also had the gourmet pizza, a delightful meal with salad. The new restaurant has a welcomed feeling to a local favorite .

We happened to be in Hanover the week La Cucina reopened, albeit in a different location. The 'new' restaurant' has a newer, more Mediterranean look. The food was excellent, just as good as I remember. The service was just as good. The owner, Armando, was everywhere, greeting customers, directing staff and stopping by each table and chatting with guests. A... More

New location in the Grandview Plaza, replacing the former Grandview Dinner. Busy Saturday night, parking lot was near full but you can call ahead, no reservations accepted. Service was great and the food was well resented and excellent. Owner moved from table to table checking on your meal and ensuring all was going well. BYOB restaurant, but not a problem... More

We went just a few days after opening in their new location. The portion sizes for the entrees are enormous, 3 out of 4 of us took home a full second meal in leftovers. Everyone seemed to enjoy their entrees. I was disappointed by the bread basket - there was a lot of bread, but most of it was soft/soggy.... More
