Stroll along 17th St., between Lighthouse and Laurel and you will find one of the Peninsula’s favorite spots, La Mia Cucina. This little jewel, with its fresh ambiance and tantalizing menu, is popular with everyone. The colorful European advertising posters that enliven the walls, are “originals, not reproductions.” That phrase is accurate in describing La Mia Cucina itself. From the comfortable linen white decor, accented beautifully by those turn-of-the-century posters, to the hand-crafted entrees and desserts, everything about La Mia Cucina says fresh and original. Owner Michael’s specialty, his ravioli dishes, are a renowned local favorite, and for good reason. They are hand made, with all the care that only a lifetime of creative food combining can bring. In addition to pasta, La Mia Cucina is known for it's fresh fish and meat specials. The desserts are made in-house by his wife Paula and daughter Michaela, and the service is personal and inviting.

The owner/greeter and wait staff were great this time. The entrees were delicious, the desserts good (chocolate cake and bread pudding) but not as fantastic as the entrees. The decaf cappuccino was very good.

Intimate and warmly welcoming. Superb service from waitstaff. Stellar and authentic menu that left you wanting seconds. The Gnocchi
Is divine! The hostess and chef both took time to connect with each diner welcoming us back for the future.

The staff is attentive and genial. The food was good, perhaps a bit more priced than I thought given the relatively simple preparation, but it was very tasty.

Amazing fresh food! The focaccia bread to start followed by the salad with local fresh greens - I had the sand dabs which were light and tasty. The Nutella bread pudding was an awesome way to finish the meal.
