“Fantastic Food”
Reviewed January 23, 2012

Make sure you call for a reservation because you would hate to not get in. Fantastic Italian food, great seafood and a very nice ambiance.

We're already planning to go back this year.

“Great service, good food a must visit”
Reviewed December 20, 2011

Both of us really enjoy good Italian food and La Cucina delivers. Entrees
include salad, pasta and homemade
bread. Lots of variety on the menu.
Great value with outstanding service also open for lunch. Small
restaurant probably should call for reservations. This is a definite return for us.

“Surprisingly good in an area bereft of top quality restaurants.”
Reviewed September 25, 2011

One of the few area restaurants accepting American Express. I understand lots of merchants balk at Amex's fees but better quality establishments eat it because they know that their acceptance is an indicated of quality, real or no. For visitors,it's importance shouldn't be underestimated. The food. Everything is so fresh and if anything wasn't from scratch or if it was dried pasta, I couldn't tell. Decent wine selection as well. A little on the small side but service was welcoming ,prompt and sincere.

“A Wedding Rehearsal Dinner made perfect!”
Reviewed September 19, 2011

Thank you to all the staff of LaCucina Italian Grill. Ricardo, the manager, made certain that everything was done to perfection. They beautifully fed 41 guests without a hitch. The service was attentive and efficient, the food was fantastic! I highly recommend this restaurant for your rehearsal dinner. Ricardo created a menu with our preferences and the guests raved about each dish. Thanks Ricardo and staff!

“Really nice meal”
Reviewed September 3, 2011

Had noticed before and finally tried this trip. We both had great veal dishes. Service was good and wine list provided good price range and variety.

Not for the family with kids, at least at dinner.
