Ordered Eggplant parmesan (probably reheated off the Sysco truck) and was disappointed. Atmosphere was a bar, with dining accompanying. Kind of lukewarm food with little flavor, service perky, overall experience meant never revisit. On the road, even reviews don't always help, and this place is now off our possibilities.

My daughter looked up the place and I was skeptical at first but we got there and the atmosphere was great and the food was even better! Service was a bit slow but defiantly worth the wait!

Delighted with the food and service. The food was well prepared and the presentation was acceptable. Our waiter was courteous and helpful. Nice restaurant for a casual dinner.

First time ever there - The dining room and bar area were recently remodeled in the last year or two. They even have outdoor dining during the warm weather. Very nice inside. The food was wonderful - I had the special Chicken Milanese - it was served with a wonderful salad and a side of penne. The sauce was very... More

We have eaten several times there. Last 2 times we ate on the back patio and can't wait for it to be warm enough to do again. Wait staff friendly and attentive. The food we had was excellent

Our experiences at La Cucina has only been for after funeral family luncheons. We have been there three times over the last few years for this reason. The food was well prepared and tasty and the servers were very helpful and courteous given the circumstances of the reason for all of us to be there. I did notice that the... More

Everything was delicious. I agree with other reviews about slow service. We were there 2 hours for dinner. We skipped desert , we just couldn't sit there any longer. The wait is the only reason I gave 4 stars. Reasonable prices, we had drinks, appetizer and 2 entrees and our bill was only 55.00. We pay more than that at... More

We decided to dine here for my mother's birthday (her choice). It took us awhile to even get a drink order in or to even get water. Once we decided what we wanted to eat we waited at least another 20 minutes in order to place our food. My entree ended up being wrong but due to the extended wait... More
