Stopped in for dinner, the place had a great old farm store look, from the open beams to the old ice box freezer in the back to the antiques through out the place. I like how the kitchen is open for view, the staff was very good also. The meals lacked the little extra flavor that was needed. The cream... More

Had passed this place many times but never stopped to eat. Went with a friend for dinner. Nice casual atmosphere. Food was very good. I had Chicken Murphy - just the right amount of spicy. Enjoyed it. I would definitely recommend and go back.

My family and friends got together to say goodby to my friends wife Debra who had passed away. The staff was excellent and the room upstairs was nice. The food was very good and the fact that we could bring our own wine was a plus. This get together and meal helped my dear friend forget his lost for that... More

This was about 45+ minutes from home, but we were going to a retirement dinner. I wasn't a fan of everything like roasted peppers, mozzarella and calamari, salads, but I very much enjoyed the bread, manicotti and chocolate mousse dessert. The service was very good. No idea of pricing. The decor is a bit like it's out of an American... More

My husband and I were traveling to the area and wanted to meet up with six family members (including two children) for a casual supper. My cousin suggested several places, but thought La Cucina might work out especially well since it has separate rooms that can be reserved. Turns out this restaurant originally was a general store and the proprietors... More

The specials at this place are out of this world. However, they have the BEST vodka sauce I've ever had. Definitely need reservations for Friday and Saturday nights because it will fill up. Very quaint, casual atmosphere.

On a recent visit to New Jersey we went to La Cucina for lunch. We met another couple who recommended the restaurant. Sure glad they did. An old building with tons of atmosphere. Remember to bring your own bottle of wine. We all had different meals. I had the stuffed shells. Fantastic. I know everyone else enjoyed what they had... More

My son suggested we go to this restaurant, and as we approached it I was surprised that it looked like a house. Well we went I and were seated in a room upstairs which was good for our party of 8. Our room had several old magazines in frames dating back several years. Our waiter was very good, he suggested... More

Great feeling to see this restaurant is an old house. Plenty of parking. Special menu on a blackboard that server bring to your table. BYOB. Quick service. Old pictures on the wall. Bread is warm and good. Zuppa di pesce is cooked to beautifully with shrimp, scallop, clam, mussels. Very tasty.
