    One of the best Italian restaurants in Guelph. I love the atmosphere, Micheal is one of the best waiters they have. We always request him when we go. La Cucina restaurant or pizzeria never disappoint. Great place, patio in the summer as lovely as well.

    This was are first visit to La Cucina Pizzeria, and we really enjoyed it. The food was great, and with a nice atmosphere. Although less expensive than the main restaurant, La Cucina, this is not an inexpensive place. With wine and desert, you can expect to have a fairly expensive meal. Generally I really liked the atmosphere, but for me, it was a bit noisy and I had to strain to hear others at my table. Maybe just me.

    I made a reservation for my mother's 68th birthday. When we arrived, the restaurant had us seated right next to a table of 30. There were young children running around the table and the other guests from this party were standing over us. I could expect this sort of thing from a diner or a casual restaurant but not from a place that serves Dom Perignon at $500/bottle! When I expressed my dismay, the restaurant had nowhere else for us to sit, other than the bar, which wasn't very hospitable to be honest. We decided to try but the reservation next to us just got louder and more intrusive. I ask to see the restaurant manager, who proceeds to explain to me that they decided to accomodate last minute guests in the big reservation. In other words, they purposefully compromised our reservation in order to make more money, hoping we wouldn't care. My mother was very very upset and I told the manager that they needed to make it up to us. All she did was take down my name and number when what she should have done was offer us a complimentary dinner for another evening. As a seasoned hospitality professional who has worked for some of the best restaurant owners and hotels in Canada, I know that mistakes happen and how you recover is EVERYTHING. In this case, there was no recovery. Having that said, I cannot in good conscience recommend my hotel guests or loved ones to La Cucina.

    They put my group in the middle of the restaurant where it was very difficult to communicate due to noise levels. The pasta was poorly made and the pesto was so bitter - clearly made from bolted herbs. I couldn’t finish it and didn’t take it home. The food came fast, and the service was okay. But I won’t be returning.

    We were served by Michael whose service is always enjoyable. We shared appetizers, calamari, Aricini rice balls and bruschetta. Everything was delicious. We all enjoyed different mains , the osso bucco delicious, the pastas were perfect, trout was excellent. Dessert also fantastic, crème brûlée, tiramisu. A perfect dining experience.
