Authentic Italian cuisine. The best butternut squash soup I have ever tasted. Armando, the owner, is quite personable and visited guests at their tables making sure everything met our expectations. North Hanover's loss is the south side's gain. So much better than Olive Garden and just moments from... read more

Love the fact that they came back, we were always big fans of the original restaurant and when Armando closed to go help the family restaurant, it left a big hole in our dining arsenal. We've been back a few times since they have reopened at this new location and were so glad that the food hadn't changed. It was... More

Went with a group of friends, but did not enjoy the experience. There wasn't a separate room that could handle our group's size so we ended up spread out in the midst of other diners. The antipasti was OK, although some thought it too mushy. We had three choices. The pasta sauce was too spicy for most of us. Most... More

My mother and I arrived for an early lunch. The restaurant was not busy but by no means vacant. Our waitress Rachel was very pleasant and on point. All aspects of our meal were incredible. They had a flyer on the advertising an app for their restaurant. I downloaded it and quickly realized they had coupons. At the conclusion of... More

We love Italian food! We found this place to be just ok for the price. The salad would have been better with fresh grated cheese. The bread was fair. The meatballs were pretty good. I dont think we would go again.

Ate here for dinner. It's been a while and the place has really gone down hill. The food was no better than a Cisco joint. Chef couldn't tell the difference between rigatura and penne. All of our noodles were the same.

I've had two trips to La Cucina since its reopening. Wasn't bad...but not as good as it used to be. The the decor isn't quite as warm and inviting as the old restaurant. We also noticed the overuse of the tiny canned shrimp in a lot of the shrimp dishes. Just seemed like a more low budget Italian fare...one notch... More

We had been to this restaurant when it was located in the heart of Hanover. This location is closer to our home in Westminster and that is where we were headed when we decided to stop. Well, I am not sure that was a good move. The cup of soup was good but I ordered Lasagna, and I did not... More
