  8. My wife and I have been to this byo restaurant several times for wonderful pasta & garlic bread. We love it. The only negative is they are so concentrated on the takeaway side that you have to wait for a break before they take your order. Maybe they need an additional staff member to concentrate on the restaurant side. Otherwise the best pasta in town.

    • Thanks for your kind words and constructive feedback Mal.

      We always endeavor to wait the tables as efficiently as we can, and we appreciate all customer patience at any unexpected spike in wait times. Please feel free to wave down a staff member at any time, and we will be more than happy to assist directly.

      We are passionate about our restaurant, the service we give to our customers and are very proud of our food. We hope to see you again soon and have a chance to wipe that negative from the scoreboard. 🙂

  9. The Lasagne is off the chain awesome.

    Try it you won’t be disappointed.

    • Thanks Pete … Glad you like it — always welcome in for some more!

  10. I used to work at La Cucina, and had my fair share of the menu.
    It was always spectacular food, and the customers were always happy.
    Can’t wait to cleanse my palate with the exquisite flavours when I visit soon!

    • Thanks Cassandra — good to see your taste buds have a good memory! Look forward to seeing you in store.

  11. I would just like to let you know that tonight I decided to try Gnocchi for the very first time ( how very sad but I am 48) and I ordered your Gnocchi Alla Rosa for us to try before our pizza. I have to say it was absolutely beautiful and so much better than I thought it would be.

    Cant wait to try the rest of your dishes 🙂

    • Hi Susan,

      Thanks for your review. Appreciate you taking the time to let us know what you thought. Yes, Gnocchi is always a nice surprise for first-timers — especially those who had been telling themselves it’s “just potato”!

      We look forward to seeing you again.

      Best Regards,

  12. I was up in Townsville a couple of months back, staying at my brother Dom’s place. He lives quite close to La Cucina and suggested that I try it out, as it’s his favourite pizza shop, for obvious reasons.

    I wasn’t disappointed. The pizzas are generously topped, with plenty of options. I had the seafood and my wife had the Mexican, with the chilli flakes on top more than satisfying her craving for spice. I also had the gnocchi with the tomatoey sauce…

    • Oh, those pasta sauces made by Leonie! They are the best. And that fresh pastry that Tina makes every day is part of the reason why the pizzas are ALL supreme! The atmosphere at La Cucina was an experience in itself. Thanks for the memory, of when I visited from south of two borders!

      • Hi Annie,

        Thanks for your kind review.

        Glad to see you like our pizzas. Yes doing our own pastry takes a bit of time and effort, but it wouldn’t be the same otherwise.

        Our mechanical rollers take a bit of effort out of it, and while Grandma probably would have frowned at the disappearance of the rolling pin (all the better to beat us with) she would have loved the pizza all the same!

        We look forward to seeing you back!

  13. I love it….
