We visit 1-2 times per year when in Pacific Grove for special occasions. Paula and the entire staff are superstars and make us feel like we are family. So nice to visit again since our last visit in February 2020. They are taking covid precautions and its very comfortable. Can't recommend them enough!
Great restaurant with fresh, quality food.
Server was excellent, with full knowledge
of menu. The bread pudding with Nutella was superb.
Best place EVER!
What a great place to have a nice dinner when visiting the Monterey/Pacific Grove area. Small family owned and operated with amazing food and service. Would highly recommend!
We are locals from Pebble Beach. LMC is owned by a wonderful family - Chef Michael and Host Paula Scanlon. The food and service are always exceptional and reasonably priced. It’s our “go to” for great local Italian. It’s the most welcoming restaurant in the area.
First time eating there, we will be back. It was fantastic. Thank you!
Came back for a Father's Day dinner. Food, wine, dessert and service were excellent. Will be back again. One of our faves in PG.
Friendly, beautiful spot w terrific menu & delicious
Always at top of our list for a terrific dinner
Place was great owners were great the chef was great who’s an owner they gave us impeccable service and I gave them an impeccable tip
Lobster Ravioli for an appetizer to share, dinner was chicken piccata and chocolate brownie for dessert...all were exceptional as always!!
The experience was beyond anything expected! Amazing food, well served, perfectly arranged to meet social distance requirements. Absolute delight! Thank you!
Great meal and experience here. The service was excellent and so was the food.
Outstanding! Must go to Restaurant! I will definitely return!
Super food, great service and elegant environment.
La Mia Cucina is our new go-to for local Italian dining. The food, and service is always incredible!
Great food, great service with a very friendly vibe and great ambiance to boot! Highly recommended.
Homemade sauces, a few fresh specials (fish and pasta), interesting salads. Crab-shrimp cakes were delicious; the accompanying coleslaw was average. Spicy sausage tomato sauce was outstanding. All meals come with either the soup of the day or the house salad. Generous portions.
The staff at La Mia Cucina is second to none. Friendly courteous and professional. We spend several weeks a year in Pebble and never miss a chance to dine at this fine establishment. We are always greeted as if we are old friends. Thanks to the great folks who always provide us with a great evening.
Will return and try other dishes. Bruschetta perfect. Wine list prices fair. Only disappointment pastas - puttanesca and bolognese too heavily sauced for our taste. We’ll adjust request in future !
This was our second visit, this time in a party of 4, last June with a party of 6. In both instances all of us were delighted with our meals -- specifically enjoyed the Veal Marsala, the in-house-made raviolis ("angel pillows") both the Lobster and Mushroom versions, the spicy sausage w/pasta, etc. Staff is super friendly and helpful navigating the menu options . Notably they make you feel like THEY are truly delighted you are there (what a concept!). Can get a bit noisy, until the food arrives and then it gets quiet in a hurry. Looking forward to our next visit.
Absolutely fabulous experience. One of our favorite places in Pacific Grove. We love the food, the staff and the ambiance!
Always a wonderful treat to dine at La Mia Cucina. The staff is wonderful and the food is always sublime.
Always an excellent meal, always excellent service.this is definitely our favorite restaurant
The food is outstanding!!! Fresh and homemade. The staff and owners are wonderful and make you feel welcome.
Both the food and service were wonderful. It was busy but not noisy. One of our favorite restaurants.
Food was pretty good but for the price it wasn’t quite worth it
Always delicious! Highly recommend the lobster ravioli. Ownership has directed a very successful business.
We very much enjoyed our evening. The hostess, maybe the owner greeted us warmly. The food was ample and very good.
I have eaten here for special occasions. The staff always makes you feel welcome and like family. Best of all the food is phenomenal.
Amazing!!! Fantastic service and fabulous food. This place never disappoints!!
Another great experience at our favorite restaurant. The food and service are 2nd to none. Thank you!!
Fantastic food, Fantastic service, great atmosphere. Really enjoyable, and have already recommended to a number of different people
We had a lovely dinner here. Everyone here cares tremendously about the experience. The food is top notch and the service caring and attentive
If you are sitting in Carmel thinking about dinner at IL Fornaio or Luca get in the car and drive 15 minutes for a MUCH better experience.
We hope to come back soon and often.
Excellent dining experience at La Mia Cucina. Staff is very welcoming and made sure we understood the menu and specials. Food was terrific. Considering how busy they were with the Christmas and New Year holidays they made us feel special and were attentive to our requests. Highly recommend La Mia Cucina.
Thank you for bringing our Grandmother's cooking back to a great evening.
Hidden gem located off a tiny side street in the downtown Pacific Grove. We had a party of 5 for 8:30 pm and thought we’d be rushed since they close at 9. Nothing of the sort!! Staff was friendly and even wished my parents a happy anniversary.
This is a cute, family-run Italian place right in the heart of Pacific Grove. It's clearly got a lot of regulars, because the hostess (owner?) was greeting a lot of people by name. Their wine list is pretty good, and they have rotating daily specials. Sunday is spaghetti and meatballs night. Warning: the meatballs are enormous. The two meatballs combined must have been at least half a pound of meat. It was overwhelming. But delicious. Would come here again the next time we're in town.
Pasta noodle was so cold. Not that impressive
Excellent Italian dishes. Very hospitable owners. Cute place with nice ambience.
Waiter was friendly and knowledgeable. Food was great, would definitely return
