Every thing you order off the menu is freshly made. The deco is beautiful. The staff can not do enough for you.

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

Stopped by La Cucina for lunch today and my dining experience was top notch! We were greeted warmly and seated right away. Our server, Kortni was terrific and so knowledgeable about the specials of the day, explaining each one. The owner stopped by our table to welcome us as first time visitors - such a personal touch. We ordered Chicken... More

We were there this past weekend. We drove special to eat at this restaurant as it was in the bonus book. Will definitely return as it was very good. Wonderful good. The service was also very good and the manager came to our table to welcome us as it was our first time. He was very gracious.

Our first visit to the latest location for this local staple. The quality seemed to drop after they moved from the very first location on Eisenhower Dr. After being regulars there, we haven't been back until now for several years. This visit was close to "the good ole' days" of La Cucina. The restaurant is well decorated and spacious in... More

We hosted the rehearsal dinner for my son's wedding at La Cucina and couldn't be happier with the result. The dinner was for 40. Armando worked with us on the price and came up with a fabulous package which gave everyone salad, bread, dessert, and a choice of four entrees: chicken piccata, penne vodka, lasagna, and a vegetarian dish (can't...

Memories of loved ones laughing as they gathered around a table set with heaping servings of homemade, delicious food - usually made by Nonna, inspires Armando's own "little Italy" in the heart of South Hanover, PA. Together with his wife Christina, and their two sons Angelo and Marcello, Armando opened LA CUCINA in 2001. His food, personality and family quickly became a community favorite. The atmosphere is designed to accommodate family gatherings or intimate dining as well as meetings and celebrations. With our extensive menu of classic Italian pasta dishes, chicken, seafood and more, there's something for everyone. Each dish is created to order allowing ease for substitutions and dietary restrictions. Featuring locally sourced products and fresh produce, only the best ingredients are used in our in house creations. A warm invitation and excellent service extends from our Italian hospitality. Welcome to our kitchen and our family's traditions.
