Very good pizza and very good meatballs with spagetti. A local favorite, and one of ours too. They are have a good selection of local beers and wine.

At La Cucina the lighting is low, the colours warm, the table linens crisp and the greeting is always friendly!
This small dining room presents wonderful food; simple + authentic recipes; engaged, knowlegeable + friendly staff; a very consistent kitchen; a good, reasonably-priced wine list; a glowing, warm atmosphere.
Our family has often chosen La Cucina Ristorante to celebrate happy occasions and we have always enjoyed relaxed, non-rushed evenings here- no matter how busy the restaurant.
I LOVE the zucchini soup; the fresh, tasty antipasti selection and the tagliatelle fungi. The salads are all crisp and lightly dressed; the fish and meats are perfectly timed and well sauced.
The service is attentive, without effusion. Fresh, warm bread is brought early and refilled as necessary, wine + water glasses are unobtrusively maintained and no one is rushed, as main course plates aren't cleared until everyone at the table is finished.
Do go and enjoy a lunch or dinner here- perfect with no pretense.

It had been probably a decade since I've eaten here but went for a family gathering... and glad we came back! We started our dinner of with custom put together anitpasto platters that were excellent, a little bit of everything there... procuttio, eggplant with tomato sauce and cheese, marinated peppers, mushrooms, grilled zuchinni, etc...Everyone chose their own main, I had the tortellini ala panna and it was solid - not a huge portion.. but it was rich to be sure! Our guests had varied dishes and all were reported as excellent - fish, veal chop, chicken, pasta. I enjoyed the wine list, lots of reasonable italian choices, and a few harder to find gems. All in all, I would definately want to come back. The service was formal and efficient.

Have lunch in this Restaurant once or twice every week. My business partner and I never had a bad meal there. Best Spaghetti Pomodoro anywhere. Cesar Salad absolutely delicious. For an outstanding lunch or dining experience this is defiantly the restaurant to visit.
