We've eaten here a few times and have never been disappointed. The food is good, the service quick and attentive. There's a distinct feeling of "familia" here which is appropriate since the restaurant is family-owned, and when you walk in you're treated like family. Servings are generous - I can't imagine anyone leaving here hungry! So stop in for some... More

This restaurant has such delicious food! I was so glad when they reopened on the south end of town because it was the best Italian food around. My whole family LOVES the garlic pizza they bring before dinner.

My wife and I have gone twice and both times I have gotten the recommended special for the day. And both times they have been superb choices. I look forward to returning and trying something off the menu one day - but if they keep coming up with such good specials it might be a while. Owner is Friendly, staff... More

Had a delightful early Friday evening dinner for 2. The owner greeted us on the way in, we were promptly seated and the service throughout was excellent. The Italian food was really good and they let us choose from among the menu specials to be offered on NYE. We each had a different delicious fish dish, one flounder & one... More

Hands down one of the best Italian restaurants I have ever eaten in. Would recommend it to anyone. The atmosphere is perfect for a romantic date. Food wasn't badly priced. You can tell the food was homemade and a lot of love and passion was put into the menu and food.

We were traveling through the area on business and looking for a good place to have lunch. This restaurant is set as a standalone near the mall. The service was excellent. The menu is very interesting and the quality was very good. I would definitely go back again and recommend it to others.

As we were passing through Hanover recently, a relative suggested we meet for lunch at La Cucina. It was a terrific recommendation. The food and service were outstanding. We all had pasta dishes and LOVED each one. The basket of assorted breads were wonderful -- we couldn't decide our favorite item. Wow. The owner stopped by the table for a... More
