We have dined at this restaurant many times and have yet to be anything but completely satisfied. The service is great and the food is consistently amazing. Its shocking to me that this restaurant isn't rated much higher on TA.

Walked down Marine Drive to find a new place to eat. This small and intimate Italian restaurant both surprised and very much pleased us! Lovely table settings. Intimate surroundings. Delicious food. Friendly service.

very tasty bread with balsamic and oil, salad, pasta, service. Special veal dish was overcooked, but still very tasty and tender. Enjoyed the patio on a warm summer's eve.

We have been to this restaurant several times and each time I become less of a fan. The pasta dishes are ordinary and the meat dinners on the menu are over priced for what you get. My husband had the special salad of the evening, a Beet Salad, which was bland and his tortellini he just rated it OK. I... More

I find lisa c's rating surprising. I have been going to La Cucina for 20 years and have never been disappointed. Waiter must have had a bad day because we find exactly the opposite--everyone from the owner down is cheery, helpful and accommodating in our requests. I can hardly wait for another plate of their pasta! I have been away... More

My husband and I had dinner here on Saturday night and it was busy, but they had a table for us. Food was 'ok'...not outstanding by any means, portions small for the $ paid. Ceaser salad and mixed greens with beets and bocancini were tasty and fresh - nicely done. Pasta was greasy, chicken over cooked. And most disappointing...our server.... More

We, at La Cucina Restaurant, would like to respond to the review of our restaurant,"overrated, over-priced, poor service", submitted on February, 1, 2015. Firstly, we would like to sincerely apologize for the service you received. From your account, this server was rude, "cranky", and simply did not do his job. We have been serving the North Shore for 35 years... More
