It was our first visit to La Cucina and we had a lovely evening with friends. The food was outstanding, particularly the Veal Saltimbocco and Veal Gamberoni. We also enjoyed the Limoncello for dessert! The service was friendly, attentive and not at all rushed and the atmosphere was pleasant and welcoming. I would love to come back to dine outdoors on the terrace in warmer weather.
Good food and great service! Great selection of appetizers. Large offering of entrees including specials. BYOB and good coffee.
Food was excellent, and the Chef made us a dish that wasn’t on the menu but a request from someone dinning with us. The service was excellent. We stayed in Atlantic City and this was just a short ride over, and there was plenty of parking. Just a great place
It was amazing!!!
Great early prix fixe dinner on NYE.Set up to permit social distancing. Delicious food; leftovers. Great service.
Dependable- good value.
Once again in this cozy friendly and beautiful restaurant great meal and very attentive service.
Took my daughter from New York to introduce her to one of my favorite local places.
We both enjoyed food and service was amazing.
Ciera was our waitress and she made our dinner very pleasurable.
Also the owner came to greet us .
Never disappointed and will always come back .
Fabulous food and top notch service! Enjoyed our Christmas Eve dinner immensely and highly recommend.
This was me and my boy friends first date almost two years ago and we’ve been coming back ever since ! We love the food. The owners and staff are great !!
Food was very good.. I had a Veal, which was a bit chewy, needed to be pounded more.. otherwise everyone seemed happy with meal
The food was great and our server ciera was amazing
Another fantastic meal....Octopus appetizer is the best I've ever had. Gnocchi with gorgonzola is super delish, Rigatoni Bolognese and Ciopino were excellent as well. Lovely atmosphere and awesome service. Our gem of a restaurant located right here in Northfield!!!
Excellent selections, great service.
Veal dish was fresh and tasty.
Cavatelli with shrimp and scallops hit the spot.
Food and service were outstanding. One of my favorite restaurant in the area. The only thing that it got me upset last night was seeing the owner and a server exchanging words in the dining room while I was having dinner with my daughter.
We love it here. Food is exceptional. Service beyond words. Always a great dining experience! Thank you
Great Anniversary dinner with friends. Make sure you listen for the specials.
La Cucina continues to be one of our favorites. We enjoyed delicious food especially the braised short ribs with polenta and cavatelli pasta with seafood. Both were rich and flavorful. We also had some great salads and grilled octopus to start. Our server Arbisa (hope I spelled your name correctly) was very pleasant and quite attentive to our needs. What we especially like is that the owner meets you at the door and remembers you by name (even though we haven't been there in couple of months) and makes you feel like family. This is great place so if you have not been there yet you should reserve a table and enjoy!
Some of the best Italian in the area. We’ve been here multiple times and the food and service have been consistently phenomenal.
Outstanding food with outstanding value, equating to multiple planned lunches and dinners!
It's hard to believe La Cucina is in a strip shopping center since its decor is so sophisticated. The food is very good and well prepared. Specials are pricey so be sure to find out how much they are. Many pastas are homemade, as are many desserts.
It's a nice BYOB dining room.
Food and service exceptional as always!
Our party of 7 was seated at a smallish table when there was plenty of other tables available. They should have offered us another table when we questioned the size of the table. There was no reason they couldn’t have put some tables together to accommodate us. Our food came - appetizers were very good. Meals were not. Veal either overcooked or undercooked. Pasta dish with seafood,lacked sufficient seafood (3 shrimp and 1 scallop). Salads ala carte. Would have been nice to start with a salad. Meals were overpriced for what we got. I formerly had lunch here and it was fantastic. So brought 6 of my friends for dinner…….very disappointing. Service was good though.
I ordered the fish special which was supposed to be flounder with spinach. I got asparagus instead and the fish was NOT flounder but rather another fish that may have been sole or something similar. As we were with guests, I could not bring this to my server's attention. Also, it was rather undercooked. I was very hungry and did eat it, but, it was not to my liking. And, as it was a special it was $38. A lot to pay for a dinner that was not as originally described and ordered!!
This was our first visit to LaCucina and it was great. Food was delicious and our server was the best. We had the octopus and the special artichoke appetizer to start. Both were really good but the octopus was delicious. I had the Fettuccine LaCucina and my husband had a Ravioli special filled with broccoli rabe and sausage in a maple cream sauce. Both pasta dishes were delicious. We will enjoy our leftovers for lunch! We will definitely be back!
Excellent in every way. Service was outstanding and food terrific
Went there with a party of 4. Service and dinner was spot on. One special, Flounder Francaise over thin spaghetti was outstanding.
Delicious! Very enjoyable dining experience. Will definitely go back!
Food was excellent. Service was great. Small restaurant was a little noisy but we will definitely be visiting again.
Everything is always good. We go there all the time.
Must have been an off night, usually we are happy. Dinner was okay, we had to send one of the 3 salmon's back 2x, it was completely raw inside. Service was very slow and the noise level was toxic!
Great food and service. I would definitely recommend.
Chef is very talented, would go back again
8 for dinner great meal, great service. I do not recall out server. She was a tiny dark haired young lady.
This is one of our favorite places to eat. The food and staff are amazing
Food was really great, accommodating our substitutions was no problem . outdoor seating was perfect!! Chef came out to tables
Service was outstanding as waitress was very pleasant s d recommended good choices.
Food was good, service was great. I don’t think the restaurant is authentic Italian, but atmosphere was nice.
Everything was delicious! The service was awesome.
