Reminiscent of an evening in Italy, La Cucina Ristorante is a dining experience not easily forgotten. Some of our signature dishes include the Zuppa de Pesce, which consists of half a lobster, little neck clams, mussels, scallops, shrimp and scrod and the Chicken Napoleon, which is a layered dish of sauteed chicken breast, breaded eggplant, vine-ripened tomatoes, and provolone cheese topped off with fresh buffalo mozzarella. We have a fine selection for any diner, whether that be tender steaks, or hearty vegetarian and vegan options. If you can't be swayed by our extensive wine list or large draft beer selection, some of our signature cocktails include our famous espresso martini, and our X rated martini among many more. We have outdoor seating available and also two lovely function rooms fit for any occasion. Whether you'd like a table by the fireplace in our fine dining room or a seat in the lounge near our 98 inch 8K TV, we have the dining experience you're looking for. Mangia!

Atmosphere - We arrived and were seated in the bar which lacks some of the design elements of the main section. We were seated near the wait station and with a view of the bathrooms. The biggest issue is the stools are SUPER tall. Looking around most women had their legs dangling. After dinner my husband who is over 6’ tall commented his legs were killing him from hanging off the chair with no where to rest them. It’s uncomfortable to sit for an hour with your legs hanging off a chair with no foot rail.
The music for dinner is LOUD. We are not old geezers but it was pounding base, Hoizer and the Lumineers with the base thumping away, volume was what I would expect at a nightspot not dinner on a Sunday.

Waitstaff - Our server was very nice, she paid attention and refilled drinks, got extra bread and such which was nice. Everything was served at a good pace.

Food - ehhh for $35 entrees they were OK but not much to write home about. The muscles were very good, the lemon broth tasty. Might have been the fact my legs were falling asleep after 45 minutes on the tall bar stool so the food was a secondary thought.

Bottom line - I would not eat there in the bar again, the main dining room seemed lovely but the bar is a bar with loud music. It lacks a wow factor.

Ownership, if you are reading this… it’s time to bring your menu up to date to match your truly gorgeous location. Down the street your competition is killing it every weekend.


The menu is incredibly boring, uninspired Italian. This is not about the execution of the food and more about the ownerships choice of menu. This menu is straight out of 1986. No choice of appetizers, all heavy mediocre items. Easton does need another red sauce Italian restaurant.

I understand staffing is an issue right now post covid, again it’s not about the staff.

We went for our anniversary dinner and were greeted with a "Happy Anniversary" upon entering and also as our server appeared. Nice touch. We ordered seafood and were impressed with the portion size. Often, restaurants load up on the pasta and have just a few scallops or shrimp, but it was perfectly balanced. Dessert was amazing, both the chocolate mousse and the gelato. Service was exceptional. What a wonderful special evening!!

I had heard that the portions were large so my mother and I shared the special salad which was delicious and huge and then we shared the chicken Marsala. It was plenty large enough for both of us and very good! I would highly recommend this restaurant!

Food good but service would prevent me from returning. Had to ask about the specials and waitress responded as if it was a pain to have to say them and insinuated none were good. Had to ask for water at least 5 times and second drink came after mrs had ended.

What a wonderful atmosphere with amazing food and excellent service, La Cucina has become a favorite of ours.
The sweet potato encrusted scrod was delicious and the portion left enough for lunch the next day.
Just a nice restaurant with an exceptional staff.

Nice venue and good ambiance. Like the fire place and high ceilings and little deck. This was a weekday visit so not very busy. Menu is a little limited. Could definitely use more appetizers.

My rigatoni alla vodka sauce with shrimp was delicious. My friends chicken Parmesan was not hot however. The waitress was excellent, the drinks and dessert were fantastic. The ambiance is rustic chic. I am not sure what happened with the chicken Parmesan but this was unusual. I have visited several times without any issues and would come back again for sure

I didn’t realize there was bar seating nor did I know I had to specify seating area. We were at La Cuchina to celebrate my daughters 21st birthday. I was very disappointed when we were seated in the loud, cold bar area. Then our waitress was very cold, never paid attention to us. I bit of a disappointment of a birthday celebration. The food was good.

This was our second try and brought friends. Where we thought the food was good, but not outstanding or memorable before, this time a few of the items were both. The Lobster Bisque and Seafood Sauté were wonderful - so delicious! The Chicken Marsala and Raviolis also very good. Only complaint was the Bolognese which was not to our friend’s liking. We were seated in a corner rounded booth which was very spacious and comfortable. Unfortunately, the service was not so good. Seemed that everything we asked for was forgotten the first time and the waiter disappeared for long periods. The menu prices were a little high, but we thought worth it, but the drink prices were a bit overpriced for the area.

We had a great date night at La Cucina. The highlight was our server Lisa who was top notch. We rate our experiences mostly on service & Lisa met our high standards and delivered 5 star service. She helped my husband secure one of the last prime ribs which was much appreciated. The wine selection is fantastic. And the food was delicious. We will definitely be back and will be sure to request Lisa.

We had a great server, we never felt rushed, our food was really delicious. I had the lobster ravioli with roasted asparagus and seared scallops. It was beautifully done and tasted so good. Sometimes lobster ravioli can tend to be bland. People often rely too much on the lobster to shine. My friend loved the meat lasagna. The drinks were delicious and pretty. We had the pomegranate martini and an aperol spritz. With so many Italian restaurants in town, you really need to do something to stand out. The OnLy thing I can suggest would be to add fresh cracked pepper mills to the table instead of the fine powdery stuff. The work done and the decor was really beautiful. I can’t wait to bring my husband next time

Waitperson had friends seated, 5 minutes after we were. So, there was complete focus on her friends.
But all worked out. Food was excellent, fish portion much too big (had 3 meals out of it.) Service better after Server’s friends left.

Love this place! The atmosphere is amazing. They have a more upscale side, a more casual bar side and outside dining as well. Even the bar side is elegant. Love the warm lighting, high ceilings, rustic wood decor and copper top tables. Extensive wine list. The food was unbelievable - calamari was perfectly done, salmon entre was a good size and delicious. My husband got the seafood minestrone which was loaded with shrimp, fish, clams, mussels and asparagus - awesome broth! They serve in a cast iron bowl which kept everything piping hot too. Definitely can't wait to go back!
