We chose to Celebrate our 2nd anniversary at La Cucina. This was our first visit to the restaurant and we can not say enough about how wonderful of an experience it was. Hands down the best Italian restaurant in Saskatoon. Not only was the food incredible but the overall dining experience is what sets La Cucina apart from any restaurant in the city. Luigi the chef came out to great us and discuss our evening, he provided an outstanding culinary experience for our anniversary by surprising us and creating a delicious 3 course menu, along with a wine pairing, his service was impeccable never letting our wine glasses empty. His creativity and passion for cooking is very evident. The restaurant owners were so friendly and welcoming and went above and beyond to make our evening special. We have never had so much fun and laughed so hard. We will definitely be back.

My family and I came to La Cucina for my birthday celebration which just so happened to be on Louis’ birthday as well. It was a fantastic experience with great food and amazing service. We had a chance to look at the menu but ended up going with Louis suggestions for the entire meal! A very nice little place, they make you feel like family and definitely pride themselves with good service. We will be coming back and bringing family and friends!

Loved everything about the food and the service. A great space. The only downside is the washrooms are not wheelchair/mobility impaired accessible.

If that is not a concern for you, then I highly recommend.

We had an excellent meal on Saturday night. Our only issue was the fact that the Caesar salad was not as described on the menu, and we were not told that the menu option was not available. We were served an extremely mediocre Caesar salad, instead of the grilled Caesar salad offered on the menu. Guests need to be advised of menu changes!

Luigi is a great host, and the food was well done. My wife is Italian and so we don't often eat out at Italian restaurants as she thinks she can do better than most Italian spots in our city, which is mostly true. We would definitely go back to La Cucina though

As we were one of only two tables at 6 pm tonight, we pretty much had Luigi’s undivided attention tonight. Very informative, helpful with recommendations for appetizers, mains & desserts.
We thoroughly enjoyed our visit, can’t wait to go back again to try other menu items. Nothing disappointed tonight, we were very happy with our meal this evening!

La Cucina is a fantastic addition to Saskatoon’s dining scene. We started with the buffalo mozzarella appetizer and each had a different entree: two pennes and the risotto with mint and pea. All fantastic. Service is warm and wonderful.

I took my husband out to celebrate his birthday. La Cucina has just came out with a completely new menu.... it was fantastic. Rich in flavour, comforting and left us beyond satisfied. The new menu has all your favourite italian comfort food options. I visited with the owner, who told me he added some of his mother’s recipes to the menu. Authentic Italian experience, from the owners right down to our server Luigi! Everyone treated us like we were a part of the family. Service was impeccable and fun! Amazing ambience... it didn’t feel like we were in Saskatoon! We had the bruschetta and buffalo mozzarella to start... then shared a pasta dish and the veal and scallops with risotto. Portions were large, we took half our pasta dish home. I’ve been dreaming about going back for the veal! Next time I will definitely order the gnocchi, I stole a bite from a guest at our table and it was soft and melted in your mouth! My husband told me when we left this needs to be our weekly tradition. Next time we will bring our kids (13 and 11) for a Sunday dinner! ❤️🍷🍝😋 🇮🇹

This place is amazing! The staff is friendly and the ambiance is wonderful - cozy and great Italian music. Our appetizers were so flavourful however our mains, the risotto and ravioli, needed salt and the portion of risotto was extremely small (for $60 - with white truffles). Tony, our waiter was fantastic - very helpful. They try to upsell a lot but were friendly about it. I highly recommend this place - just watch the prices if they're recommending things that aren't on the menu.

We very much enjoyed our dining experience. Service was great and it has a lovely quaint atmosphere. We realize it still in its early stages. Two of our dining party were a bit disappointed with their meal. One was a little rich and one didn’t have enough flavour. But overall it is a very nice restaurant.
