Unfortunately for this restaurant they did not get our business because they we're not courteous to seat us. When we arrived and asked to be seated we told rudely told no tables were available, nor we're we given an estimated time to wait. While the food may good?? There level of customer service is unacceptable, as a visitor eastern Canada,... More

I had driven by this sight many times and never ate there. Well I was pleasantly surprised by the great service and attentive staff, but I was even more pleased with the quality of the food.

Small restaurant, not the fanciest but food was excellent. It was someone's birthday while we were there and the owner sang happy birthday in opera. It was little scary as it was loud and a little wierd but she had a good voice. Not sure it was the best thing to do at a restaurant

I got the linguine and clams but the clams were already out of the shell so maybe they were from a jar and not fresh. I order this dish a lot at various restaurants and usually it is served with the clams still in the shell. Service was great and we had the place to ourselves, maybe because it was... More

We had dinner here and wow! Lovely waiters although they did seem to have more time for older couples. Small restaurant, we sat outside as it was a nice day, our table was a bit dirty with insects and leaves but as you look above you the patio is covered by grape vines that are physically growing grapes! These guys... More

We ate outdoors under the vines that were planted decades ago and even had grapes on them. The service was excellent. The food was also very good as was the house red wine.

We've been going to La Cucina for almost 30 years and it remains one of our favourite restaurants anywhere. Most recently we celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary there. The pasta is always perfect, the chicken livers are unparalleled (we've tried many times to duplicate them at home to to avail), they make the best Caprese salad anywhere, and the entrees... More
