We have traveled extensively in Italy and we honestly think the food is superior to food anywhere in Italy. The attention to detail, the lovely drive over from Blowing Rock adds to the experience. Make your reservation early as it fills up rapidly.

La Cucina is a real Italian homey kitchen offering 28 seats. The dining room is situated inside of the kitchen. We cook entirely from scratch. Always ready to experiment new recipies, but strongly influenced by the traditional cuisine of Milan and Lombardy. From our passion for the art of eating well and from our family to yours, we hope you enjoy these delicious recipies from our Italian timeless tradition.
