Service attentive without being intrusive. We were looked after superbly. We were treated like family although this was our first visit. Food was better than excellent - can recommend the ravioli.

Went few times to La cucina and I always had a great time and superb food! It has an open kitchen where you can see the chefs cooking. You can also talk to the chefs and ask about the specials or the menu.

I liked this restaurant because it can boast "truly" Italian cook and personnel, truly Italian products, and almost genuine Italian menu. I say "almost" because there are some options and flavors that unfortunately have been "contaminated" by some kind of local taste for garlic and spices...Too much in my opinion in some dishes...I had the pleasure to talk to the...
