Queso, good. Chips, good. Salsa, good. Poblano and chicken enchilada special with chipotle cream sauce, good. Sangria, ok. House Margarita, ugh - cheap tequila alert. Seated right away at 7:30 for 2 on Friday night.

First of all, the Chicago pasta was fantastic. Great taste with a little "hot zip" to it. BUT...the prices were high, the portions average size, and you had to pay extra if you wanted garlic bread. All you get for free is chips and salsa on the table. The house salad for $5.00 was average in taste and size, comprised... More

I was not sure what to expect from La Cocina. I was very happy that I came. The food is pretty darn good. I ordered the Salmon with pasta. Yum is a good word to describe it. Very tasty and no fishy taste. My partner had the special which was a chicken canole with cream sauce. It was awesome. For... More

Can't tell--is this a great Italian restaurant doing Mexican food or is it a great Mexican restaurant doing Italian? We eat here several times per year and have nothing but wonderful food from either side of the menu. We have taken a lot of people here over time and everyone loves the food-especially the monster size serving of lasagna. The... More

This restaurant is one of those "hole in the wall" places, off the beaten path, authentic and very good. We had Mexican food - enchiladas, and they were very good, as were the chips and chunky salsa. The atmosphere is lit dimly, but it was quiet and you could carry on a conversation easily, without having to shout over the... More

If it weren't for a friend of mine to recommend this place, I would have NEVER stopped by this little hole-in-the-wall. BUT I was extremely happy with the food, the service, but especially the FOOD. I never heard of a Mexican place that does Italian, but everything we tried was first-rate. Pastas were good, enchiladas were GREAT - and it's... More

My husband and I have eaten here three times and each time we've been very pleased with our meals. The food tasted fresh, had good flavor and was priced well. To be fair, all meals were on a Saturday afternoon, so it was not crowded and the service was very good. The mix of decor was fun and a bit... More
