“Love La Cucina!”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

We went to La Cucina for my birthday lunch and ordered a margherita pizza to share and we loved that instead of bringing out the whole pizza and it getting cold they brought out a serving for each of us and then when we wanted more she brought more and it was hot! Loved that extra bit of service. Also, it was their 2 year birthday so they had $2 wine for lunch so since it was my birthday I had wine to celebrate with them!

“Could Have Been Better”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

My husband and I ordered a pizza and chicken milano and both could have been better. The pizza came out way overdone and the pasta dish had 3 little pieces of chicken. The amount was so small we just had to count! The weight was probably less than 2 ounces. The waitress brought out the pizza and asked if it was too dark or should she have a new one made. My husband decided against having a new one as we would have had to eat at different times. He said the pizza would have been awesome if it had been cooked properly. At least she offered to have a new one made. It would have been better if she simply told the kitchen to make it right and inform us that it would be a bit longer because of the situation. We will give it another try the next time we are shopping at Dartmouth Crossing.

“Small and crowded”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

I was part of a Ladies Supper group that met here to eat and they were not prepared for us at all.

I waited by the bar with the other ladies and we were constantly in the way as servers tried to get by us to serve the other patrons.

By the time we had our meals we had to remind them that we were supposed to have been given bread as a starter.

“Delicious!”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

We ordered takeout to bring back to our hotel. The food was delicious and the staff was very helpful. They made sure to suggest changes to the order to accommodate my young son and provided us with everything we needed to eat our meal at the hotel. Prices were great as well!

“Very Enjoyable Meal”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

This was our third visit to La Cucina, and once again we thoroughly enjoyed it. We were greeted warmly and served quickly by an extremely affable and attentive server. While we were waiting for our mains, we were given a loaf of fresh, hot bread that was crusty on the outside and soft on the inside. Yum! Hubby had the pasta vegetali, which was delicious (I know because I stole some) while I went for the chicken parm. This was also very tasty. Portions were adequate, the food served hot, and the prices very reasonable. For dessert, we shared a piece of white chocolate raspberry cheesecake, which was nicely presented and very good. We will return.
