    The food was delicious but the amount of flies were quite disturbing.

    We booked last minute and so glad we did. I'd heard great things about the wood fired pizza and it didn't disappoint. Great for a casual night with friends and family.

    My son attends school in the city and we ate at this restaurant a year ago as a send off dinner for school and the food was amazing. Came back this year for the same purpose and was very disappointed. The pasta was cold by the time it came to us. It was as if it was not timed with the pizza orders. The appetizers were slightly better than the main courses but didn't wow us. The calamari was overcooked. No where as good as the food we had a year ago.

    My family of seven enjoyed our night. The food was excellent, the ambiance was perfect. The restaurant was full and we were able to have dinner conversation without hearing background noise or other conversations.

    Waited 45 min for our first drinks. Waited forever for everything then one dinner didn't show up until after everyone was done eating. Our appetizer came out at that time as well, after our meals. Red wine was ice cold and was told they keep it all refrigerated but the white wine was warm. The bills were all wrong at the end too. No dinner should take 3 hours.

    Service could have been better - took long for requests to be fulfilled; for example, we asked for a glass for our third guest to have water and the glass was never brought out. One of our guests asked for a glass of wine and it took so long that we cancelled. These are only two of the events that occurred with service that we recognized. The pasta and gnocchi needed to have stronger flavors for our liking. The tiramisu was the highlight! Hands down one of the best tiramisus I’ve ever had and almost made up for the gnocchi and pasta. The ambience was impeccable! This is the second time I’ve been to La Cucina. I would love to come back with these comments recognized. Overall, staff training for efficiency could improve the restaurant tremendously and perhaps a revisit of the formagio gnocchi recipe. Other than that, I would absolutely recomend friends to La Cucina

    Steak came overcooked, sent it back, and it came back still way overcooked. Salad came after main was served. Side vegetables came 10 minutes after mains, and we never got the coffees we ordered... Had to tell them to cancel it after waiting a while.

    Very comfortable, upscale casual dining experience. Delicious cocktails prepared by knowledgeable bar staff. Thin slice pizza crust was a bit soft for my liking. I prefer it to be fairly firm and crispy.

    They seem to be understaffed every time. Although once this waitress named Julia realized our table wasn’t attended by someone else she did an incredible job. Great service!

    I came to the restaurant on a recommendation from a family member. The food and atmosphere were excellent. Our waiter was not as familiar with the menu and had to go and clarify twice. We assumed that he was new. We did enjoy our dining experience. I would definitely return.

    They did not have the pasta I wanted on the menu so I ordered the fettuccine with mushroom but I was not impressed at all with the food, my friend ordered a pizza and it was definitely better. Not sure if I will go back. Service was very good and fast though.

    Amazing quality food, good service and a beautiful restaurant. We have frequented this business 3 times now and will make it our go-to night out. My only complaint is that there were very loud advertisements being played multiple times throughout the night - assuming it was poor choice of music platform. Seemed like a fluke. Will be back again very soon!
