La Cuchina is a true italian restaurant that has many of the traditional dishes on its menu. The food is good but not great. Portions are adequate and you can take in your own wine. Cost wise, it is a fair value.

I ordered the watermelon/ cantaloupe brushetta on special and it was delicious! Probably one of my favorite foods tried over the summer. For the entree I order penne vodka and my husband got a veal dish. We both ended up taking some food home because we were so stuffed! You get complementary bread that was 3 different varieties- very yummy... More

La Cucina catered a recent wedding I attended. I had been told the entrees would be delicious and I am being gracious in stating the pasta, chicken and potatoes very not edible. Rubbery,greasy chicken, soggy pasta and black rotten scalloped potatoes. The salad and meatballs were passable. The desserts were average. Overall a disgrace to Italian cooking.

The bruschetta was so very fresh along with the caprese salad. Just authentic and delicious foods. Portion sizes were perfect. The chicken parmigiana was moist and a nice tomatoe sauce. The asparagus/crab salad came with a nice portion of jumbo lump crab meat. The deserts were heavenly. Overall, we had a fantastic meal and will be back. It is byob,... More

Although our hosts really were old friends, owner treated us all as dear friends and the whole experience was first-rate. Delicious and well-priced, especially since you're welcome to bring you own wine. Dear wife and I shared veal picatta with mushrooms and capers and pasta bolognese ( with extra sauce.) Portions were huge and very good, with tempting bowl of... More

This is one of our favorite places to dine. The food is always prepared with fresh ingredients and always appealing. So many good things to choose from. Their nightly specials are always a treat and the seafood is superb. This is a must for anyone in the Hanover area to try.

. Have been a fan of La Cucina for several years. So delighted they have reopened at a location even closer to the Maryland-Pennsylvania border. Even saw some of the owner's family there-something of a homecoming! It is always a welcoming, friendly venue; the Service is consistently caring. Of course, it is the food that really sells the place. The... More
