    Skip on the calamari, ours was overly greasy and I couldn’t enjoy it. The classic bruschetta was fantastic! Our veal and pasta dishes were good and the wine was as well, the ricotta donuts for dessert were delicious. Service was great. Nice cozy and romantic place!

    Fantastic experience! We’ve done their set menu V-day experience twice now and both times it was wonderful. This was my first time going à la carte and it was even better. You absolutely must try the Carciofo E Pecorino appetizer, and the Bells Rosa martini!

    A lovely evening in a small quiet venue. The food is quite good- especially the veal and pasta dishes. The calamari although tender was a bit greasy. The service was top notch. Will definitely be back for a special occasion

    Such a great little green hidden on 3rd Avenue. We really enjoyed the arancini appetizer and our mains were perfection. I wasn’t a huge fan of the grilled focaccia, but that might just be a personal preference. We will absolutely be back!

    Our puff pastry appetizers were amazing. I ordered the veal funghi and it was very tasty and perfectly prepared. My husband ordered the steak; said it tasted like it was boiled in oil. Said the veggies tasted very similar as well. Gave my husband a taste of my veal and he agreed with me that it was very tasty. When asked by our server about our meal; I told her that mine was great, my husband said that his was just okay. He wasn't asked any further questions about the "just okay" comment.

    We showed up early for our reservation and they got us in asap, very friendly, great atmosphere-private and romantic. Drinks and appetizers were actually quite good although on the more expensive side. My husbands meal was quite beautiful and delicious, mine was just okay-presentation was very very lovely but taste was kind of just flat, the scallops were the size of dimes and my mussels werent much bigger unfortunately-too bad as I love seafood lol! Overall experience though was a lovely date night out.

    My husband and I celebrated his birthday on the weekend at La Cucina's. The overall experience was good and we will likely come back again to try some other dishes. The service was good and the restaurant is very cosy and intimate. We both ordered pasta. My husband's was good but my pasta dish was not very generous at all and didn't have a lot of flavour. We ordered the classic bruschetta which tasted fine but was very small for the price. As I said earlier, the overall experience was very nice but I would try some other dishes next time.

    We made a group booking with little notice and they were very accommodating. The waiter was great! He made terrific and thoughtful suggestions, was attentive and read the needs of the diverse group very well. We did a family style meal with appetizers and entrees and every dish was amazing. I especially loved the puffed pastry appie and the fresh pasta (both of which the waiter suggested) and the mushroom risotto. Thanks to everyone at the restaurant for accommodating us and making it a memorable experience.

    The food was not good, very much like a chain restaurant. Thé sodas were not free refill and no one said anything, they just charged us a lot for refills. Then they kicked us out even though when you book you get 2 hour fine time and we had only been there one hour and 15 minutes. So disappointed in how we were treated.

    We always enjoy our special dinners here. It's become a tradition to have supper with our son and his wife on their birthdays. Our goal is to try something new each time! For this most recent visit, our server was Jeremy, and he was great. Our drinks were yummy, although I think the cocktails have too much ice. Our entrees were good, although it was clear ours had been sitting for a few minutes before being delivered to the table. The taste was good, but the temperature was warm to cool (not my preference for pasta). I had the fettucine con funghi - it was good, although as mentioned it was lukewarm, and unfortunately it was heavy on the black pepper (or some spice). Everyone else enjoyed their entrees, and we all LOVED our appetizers - the focaccia bread and the Artichoke & pecorino puff pastry topped with prosciutto. YUMMY!!! Bottom line - while I find it a bit overpriced for what you get, we'll keep going back, and we'll keep trying a different dish each time. The ambience reminds me of the North End in Boston, so I feel at home there. And the waitstaff are always lovely. Oh, and the tiramisu was AWESOME.

    Saturday evening (October 28, 2023), my wife and I celebrated our birthdays at La Cucina Ristorante. The restaurant has a European-like atmosphere. There was a romantic ambience that was accentuated by dim lighting and soft background music. Our table server - Jeremy - was very polished. He was knowledgeable of both his wine list and the evening menu. Jeremy's suggestions were impeccable. We began our meal sharing a vegetarian pasta-less lasagna appetizer. We were told that this was a recent creation by the chef. It was a blend of favours, savouring vegetables and smothered in melted cheese. My wife ordered the Risotto de Mare, a seafood dish in a creamy parmesan riscotto - outstanding. As for myself, I ordered the - Osso Bucco - a veal shank braised in a red wine demi glace lying over a bed of noodles - pleasing to the palate for sure. We ended our meal with expresso and an Italian liqueur. Thank you to the staff at La Cucina Ristorante for a wonderful evening

    The food, service and ambiance were excellent. We felt the pricing was a bit high especially on the meat dishes. The music was a bit too loud but they accommodated us by turning it down just a bit. Overall we were very pleased and plan to visit again.

    I honestly love this restaurant - but last night just didn’t do it justice. They were sold out of what we wanted to order for an appetizer so we ordered something else but the server forgot to put it in the system. She came back to double check after a while if we did order something. She then placed the order. When we got our dinner, we had to rush because we didn’t have time to sit longer as we had to be gone by 8:30.
