We had one good, the Carbonara and one not that great, the seafood pasta. The place has 2 floors, downstairs is more formal with tablecloths, upstairs there is a small terrace and a less formal restaurant. Nice Italian wine by the glass. We would come again. The bill had a 10% service charge and we asked the waitress if it was her tip. She said no, so when we went to pay, we asked what it was for and were told it was for the waitress, hmmm....

As an Italian from New Jersey I was extremely surprised to find such an excellent authentic Italian restaurant in the middle of Yerevan!
Quality food, great service, affordable prices, amazing experience!
Make sure you tip your server, gratuity that's included in the check doesn't go to your server in Armenia !

This is a very cozy restaurant, not very expensive but not for people on budget either. The place is clean, the waters are nice and can understand English.

We had Pizza and pasta. When we told them we were vegetarians, they took special care of us and gave us one of the best meals we had eaten in a while. That is saying a lot as we are residents of Dubai and have some really great restaurants here in Dubai. Service was impeccable and food really very nice. Ambiance and location was superb.

We ordered stake and it was terrible. They also charged us for catchup and lemon!
Salad was also very bad.

Dear Mr. Karim B.

Thank you for visiting La Cucina, I distinctly remember your group as our good Iranian neighbors visiting Yerevan, I also recall the issue with lemon and Ketchup since it was the first time in the past 5 years of our operation.
Please allow me to make some clarifications, being that we are an authentic Italian restaurant, we provide all the necessary condiments to compliment the dish at no extra charge, Ketchup is not one of them and we try to discourage people using it on an authentic pizza, also, lemon wedges come with all our seafood dishes and some drinks, only when the customer asks for a whole lemon, we charge it at cost, as it is customary in all restaurants in Armenia.
As for your comments regarding the quality of the food, to be honest I am quite surprised by your remarks, as I do remember that all the plates had been emptied, which is always a good sign that food was enjoyed, and you absolutely made no complaints in regard to the food or the service. Thank you again and I hope we will have the opportunity to serve you again.
