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

Loved this place. The Owner Armando is a great host and a lot of fun. I lived in Italy for 7 1/2 years, this is as close to authentic as I have had.

I often dine at La Cucina. This past Saturday evening the owner/chef made a special New York strip with bacon rapped scallops and shrimp over a bed of delicious risotto. The steak was prepared to a perfect medium-rare and covered with mixed mushrooms. As usual, the service was excellent. My server this night was Alex Wertz. His care and attention... More

We ate at La cucina and met the owner Armondo. Great attitude, great service, great food and we had a great visit with him. We both have family in Sicily and we instantly felt at home. On the side -- he makes great lemonchello.
