Stroll along 17th St., between Lighthouse and Laurel and you will find one of the Peninsula’s favorite spots, La Mia Cucina. This little jewel, with its fresh ambiance and tantalizing menu, is popular with everyone. The colorful European advertising posters that enliven the walls, are “originals, not reproductions.” That phrase is accurate in describing La Mia Cucina itself. From the comfortable linen white decor, accented beautifully by those turn-of-the-century posters, to the hand-crafted entrees and desserts, everything about La Mia Cucina says fresh and original. Owner Michael’s specialty, his ravioli dishes, are a renowned local favorite, and for good reason. They are hand made, with all the care that only a lifetime of creative food combining can bring. In addition to pasta, La Mia Cucina is known for it's fresh fish and meat specials. The desserts are made in-house by his wife Paula and daughter Michaela, and the service is personal and inviting.

    Everything was excellent. The food was delicious. There was nothing that we didn’t love. The service was attentive and friendly. The atmosphere felt intimate and special but still comfortable and welcoming.

    There is such warmth as soon as one enters La Mia Cucina. The atmosphere is cozy and service is professional and friendly. One of the treats about this restaurant is that it's a favorite among locals, so many diners are frequent fliers and have long-standing relationships with the owners and wait staff. The food is outstanding. My husband and I are vegetarians, and we're always appreciative of thoughtful choices. We can count on a creative salad, a delicious pasta, and a yummy dessert. My first visit to this restaurant was with a couple of girlfriends who treated me to a birthday dinner. When I arrived, I was greeted by the host with a happy birthday. Our table was strewn with silver stars. It was absolutely charming. I highly recommend La Mia Cucina for festive occasions and everyday dining out.

    This was our second visit in 3 weeks. We are used to excellent service and food and this was no exception. I tried the meat/spinach raviolis for the first time..it was mmm good. Reserve a table as it is popular with locals and tourists.
