There is nothing I look forward to more than an old fashioned family recipe that has been prepared for dinner. Whether you’re into pasta, lasagna, calzones, or even pizza all of it just tastes better homemade. There are few things in this world that are better than grandma’s home cooking, food just tastes better when it is prepared with love. There is however, La Cucina that can compete with grandmother’s cooking. I feel like I am getting the same home style cooking when I visit La Cucina in Reno, Nevada. It is almost like my grandma is back there in the kitchen helping prepare food. When I visit La Cucina I get this sense that they are letting me visit my grandmother’s house for a huge feast.
Their way of cooking is phenomenal, and their connection with the customers isn’t like any other restaurant I’ve been too. When you walk through the doors to La Cucina, you immediately become a part of their family. I know that there are some secret ingredients in the food that has been prepared by La Cucina… it is love. It is almost like they have raided my grandmother’s recipe cabinet and incorporated that into their pastas.
Words cannot describe the feelings I have for this company; I would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting the Reno area. You will not regret the visit, so give this restaurant your full attention. It is worth the visit and worth the stay, so sit down, grab a drink, have some pasta, and visit with the locals.

We invited our nearby business neighbors to try La Cucina for their business lunch needs. The Gandolfo Team of Clark Real Estate was the first to RSVP! Grazie!
Their Business Lunch Experience:
The Gandolfo Team had an office meeting today to go over goals! We needed something to go, something close by and something delicious!
After reviewing the La Cucina menu we decided on what was a MUST TRY! I had the Italian BLT, while my team mates had the “Tad Dunbar” and the “Alexandra” sandwiches.
Can you say OMG amazing?! It was so good we spent the first part of the meeting only talking about the food. We will be back for sure, and next time it will involve wine.

La Cucina is brought to you by the same owner/operator as Johnny's Ristorante, but the two restaurants are not the same. Louis Cassinari has taken the same great food and brought it to a convenient location for all to enjoy. Not sure which restaurant is right for you? Take a look!
Only a handful of restaurants earn the right to look back over decades, rather than years or months. Johnny’s Ristorante Italiano traces its roots to 1966 when founders Johnny and Mary Cassinari embarked on their mission to serve the very finest, traditional pastas, sauces and Italian cuisine made from the freshest, hand-selected ingredients. Authentic charm, a relaxing ambiance and signature specialties such as, Parmesan Crusted Petrale Sole, Linguine with Shrimp & Asparagus in a Saffron Cream Sauce and Osso Buco have made Johnny’s an enduring local favorite for occasions made special with uncommon quality and service.
Louis Cassinari, owner and second-generation proprietor of both Johnny's and La Cucina, continues to honor the legacy of his parents with 5-star hospitality and cuisine. La Cucina Italian Eatery on Lakeside and Moana is Cassinari's second location, where he's had the freedom to experiment with the building, menu, and atmosphere. Realizing the success of Johnny's, La Cucina now endeavors to measure up to its older brother restaurant, with a fine dining experience and Italian food equal to that of Johnny's.
