    Excellent place, all around. From reservation confirmation call hours before our time; to first look as we entered and were warmly and friendly greeted. Ambiance, and wait staff attendance was second to none. Food was amazing - VERY good. All around excellent place, food, service, price ... everything. Thank you for making our wedding anniversary dinner out a tremendous success.

    Good evening out with outstanding service but the food was not as good as it should have been (or had been in the past). The muscles were very small in size but the wine and garlic reduction they were in was fantastic. The Pickerel unfortunately was a complete disaster - it was dry and way overcooked while the roasted asparagus and broccolini were also overdone and limp. The pescatore pasta was quite good and the Tiramisu was acceptable. Jason picked the wines for us and we enjoyed all of them. All in all an enjoyable outing and will go again especially for the service. Hopefully the food will be back to their usual excellence next time!

    A must try! La Cucina is beautiful. The service is the some of the very best you will get in the city and the food was outstanding. Cooked to absolutely perfection, great variety, awesome recommendations. This is not just a restaurant it’s a true dining experience and I can tell that I’m not the only person who as loved their experience there. Go to La Cucina and pretend you’re in Italy for a night. You will not regret it!

    The polpettine was excellent, and the caprese salad is the best in town. I had the pappradelle and it was very good. My wife had the seafood risotto, it was way to spicy for her. It didn’t say anywhere that there was pepper flakes in it. Shouldn’t have to ask about spice level at an Italian restaurant. All in all, we’ll be back but a spicy risotto was unexpected.

    We finally have an authentic Italian restaurant in our city! La Cucina is full of atmosphere from the classics playing softly in the background setting the mood, the excellent wait staff (Don was spot on with his recommendations) and the food...oh the food! Homemade bread to start, Risotto di Mare, Bistecca that was so tender you really don't need a steak knife...absolutely an impeccable evening. We both decided - this is our go-to-spot now for date nights. Eccellente!!!

    My wife and I made our first trip after seeing such great reviews. La Cucina did not let us down. Very nice atmosphere, small with nice ambiance. Our server was very knowledgeable and friendly, his recommendations off the menu were perfect. Appetizers were delicious, main course was very tasty, and the tiramisu was a nice desert to finish off the meal. I look forward to returning and trying some other dishes. The ribeye was different than any other ribeye I've ever had, cooked Italian style, very flavorful and filling.

    I cannot recommend this restaurant enough. The food was amazing. The restaurant is modern, yet super homey and inviting. It's like going to dinner at your best friend's house. The service is top notch with an incredibly knowledgeable and experienced staff. You can't go wrong making a reservation at La Cucina. :)
