Very dark inside, we couldn't read the menu. We only wanted a quick bite. Thankfully the food came out quickly, it went downhill from there. The beef had a horrible taste, rancid almost. The ketchup out of a Heinz bottle was definitely not Heinz. Dark color and very vinegar flavor (definitely food service in a Heinz bottle). All the food... More

Ate here with business colleagues. Food was ok. Restaurant lacks style and is quite dark Food is ok but not special. We had three starters and all were massive - as big as a main course which is wasteful. Mussels, calamari and brioche. For mains we had one of the specials which should have had crab, lobster and prawn. I... More

We stopped here for dinner on the way home from a business trip. It's a bad sign when salad is served with a packet of commercial dressing. And the salad mixture itself was unimaginative. On the other hand, I had an excellent chicken cacciatore. My husband had a meatball sandwich--on the recommendation of another Trip Adviser review. He found the... More

We keep going here because we want to like it. We want to support local independant business and want good local Italian food. Here's what it is. It's a pizzeria, dressed up a little bit, with an extended menu. It's still pizzeria quality food and pizzeria atmosphere, but with fine dining prices.

If you are in Havre de Grace, La Cucina is a place to go. The food was great. The portions are large so be prepared. Our server, Misty, not only brought our food but gave us great information on events happening in the area. We will definitely make a trip back.

I am a local and enjoy this "classic" Italian cuisine. Very nice place. Good service. Not so expensive but very large portions. Good place for doggy bag!

My company goes on a yearly trip to HDG and we LOVE coming here. To start; the drink selections were uncomplicated and refreshing- a really nice break from all these craft cocktails and unknown brewing companies that seem to be taking over the world. Easy choices that took a lot of stress out of the ordering process for a large... More
