    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.

    La Cucina is a Saskatoon gem! The restaurant is romantic, the food outstanding, but most importantly the service and staff at La Cucina are exceptional. La Cucina is a treasure in Saskatoon, a must-try that will soon become an unforgettable favourite!

The service is top notch with an incredibly knowledgeable and experienced staff. You can't go wrong making a reservation at La Cucina. :)

    I was really looking forward to eating some authentic well cooked Italian food and given the prices thought it would be. Pasta was over cooked, risotto was soupy, medium rare steak was medium well done, Ossobuco was mostly bone, the fish was swimming in the risotto and the panacotta wasnt panna cotta or at least not Italian panna cotta. On the bright side the calamari was delicious as was the shell fish with the overcooked pasta. And of course didn’t have the wine in stock that we ordered after a lengthy discussion with the waiter who I think was a little embarrassed about the food knowing I’d lived in Italy for years. Certainly the worst value for money that I’ve had in a long time.

    What a gem! The restaurant is small, but you don't feel crsmped for space. The ambiance lovely. Great place for date, night out with the ladies or even a casual business dinner. Our waiver, Don was fantastic offering knowledge of the menu and a nice wine pairing and a bit of humor on the side! Meal was delightful and dessert... the donuts are a MUST try. We will be back ti try other treasures on thr menu.
