We had a wonderful dining experience and will return when visiting Pacific Grove. The restaurant has a very welcoming feeling, as if you one of the local residents come there on a regular basis. This was our first time there.

Wonderful Italian Cuisine.
We had a party of six and everyone enjoyed the food. We have been there 3 or 4 times and always love it. Excellent service, too. Highly recommend Joe Rombi's.

Would Try it Again
We truly enjoyed friendly and attentive service in this small, clean, quiet restaurant. A crostini and bread were brought to the table during the wait for our meals. We ordered off the menu, and the food was good. But, for the prices, we were expecting more. The pasta was tender, but the sauces/fillings were very salty, and no other flavors could really be distinguished. Same with the meat entree. It was good, but not great- and very salty. Because of the overall experience we'd try it again, but perhaps ask more questions about the menu items or specials.

Italian Food As Good As In Italy !!
We will miss Joe Rombi's greeting at the door, but the new owners welcomed us like old friends and have learned Joe's family recipes extremely well. The Sunday night spaghetti and meatballs special was wonderful as always. My veal Marsala was tender and seasoned perfectly. Try not to eat too much of the superb focaccia bread as the desserts are homemade and well worth those extra calories. All of the long time servers were there and attentive as usual, They are without a doubt the best in the area. We will definitely continue to eat at La Mia Cucina!

We had a great meal from the minestrone soup, salad, veal saltimbocca, and as my wife said, "The strawberry shortcake was the best I ever had." To top it off, a very generous couple on vacation paid for our dinner, just because they said it made them feel good!
Very memorable meal in every way!

We have been to La Mia Cocina many times and always enjoy it. The transition from Joe Rombi's has been seamless & it remains our go-to restaurant whenever we get down to Pacific Grove. The fish dishes are wonderful & the pasta is delicious! And the freshly made desserts are the best! We particularly love the strawberry shortcake!

A Great Little Spot!
We found La Mia Cucina a few years ago on another visit to Pacific Grove. It's a small gem with seating for no more than 40 people. The place is well taken care of by the hostess, 2 waiters & a busboy(a young man who will undoubtedly own the place some day). The food is excellent. I had the Farfalle with Bolognese & my wife had the Chicken Piccata. The service is warm & friendly. You're treated as if you're a regular, even if it's your first time there. I couldn't recommend this restaurant any more highly.

My wife and I recently ate at La Mia Cucina for the first time on the advice of a friend. The food and service were both outstanding. Before we left, we made reservations for 8 of us in a few weeks.

The food was delicious, and the service was outstanding. The Arancini (italian rice balls with a filling of italian sausage, procuitto, onion, peas & mozzarella, wrapped with rice, breaded and quickly fried, served with a tomato pesto sauce) is a must try.
The woman who greeted us (also the owner) was extremely welcoming. We were celebrating our 5 year wedding anniversary, and when we were seated at our table, we noticed wedding/party confetti sprinkled on our table. Very cute! We ended our wonderful meal with homemade truffles, complements of the owner. Overall, a wonderful experience, enjoyable food, and outstanding service.

We escaped to Pacific Grove for a romantic weekend! La Mia Cucina upped the romance level by 300%!

We were referred to Joe Rombi's by a client of my wife. Wow, what a great find!! I was raised on homemade Italian food and this is as good or better! The lady that greeted us was very nice and helpful. Our waiter, we have had him twice now, was extremely gracious and helful. Each course took on its own flavors. The calamari, the wedge, the sole and eggplant were beyond great for us! Thank you so much for the pride you take in creating your dishes.
BTW, the deli next door is also The Rombi Family..............you need to get there for lunch or morning coffee. Thank you.
