Description: Stroll along 17th St., between Lighthouse and Laurel and you will find one of the Peninsula’s favorite spots, La Mia Cucina. This little jewel, with its fresh ambiance and tantalizing menu, is popular with everyone. The colorful European advertising posters that enliven the walls, are “originals, not reproductions.” That phrase is accurate in describing La Mia Cucina itself. From the comfortable linen white decor, accented beautifully by those turn-of-the-century posters, to the hand-crafted entrees and desserts, everything about La Mia Cucina says fresh and original. Owner Michael’s specialty, his ravioli dishes, are a renowned local favorite, and for good reason. They are hand made, with all the care that only a lifetime of creative food combining can bring. In addition to pasta, La Mia Cucina is known for it's fresh fish and meat specials. The desserts are made in-house by his wife Paula and daughter Michaela, and the service is personal and inviting.

“Early bird”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

I was the first customer for dinner so I got to spend some time talking to the waiter about living in the area (which I hope to do someday soon) He was also helpfull in explaining the menu and how things were prepared. I should have ordered from the specials, but I ordered from the menu and it was ok. I will be back.

“great surprise in pacfic grove”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

Wonderful fun dinner at joe rombis mia cucina, very welcoming and fun owners..all the pastas,bread and deserts are home made and worth the visit!! Very reasonabl;e prices, lots of yummy food, and a great selection of items. I liked the fact they seemed to use alot of fresh local ingrediants in the specials as well as the menu. Arancini(italian rice balls) are the best i ever had, everyone seemed to love their entress however i think the group liked the Tortiglioni with homemade italian sauge the best..The ownership is new and seems to be a real family affair...
