A large corner building marked by large burgundy awnings, Italian bar and restaurant La Cucina is a Northcote Road landmark – indeed you’ll often hear uttered locally ‘I’ll meet you at La Cucina. But the popularity of this restaurant isn’t just down to being easy to find, of course not, La Cucina is so well loved by Wandsworth locals for numerous reasons, not least the laid back, friendly atmosphere and friendly service from all Italian wait staff. The relaxing vibe is helped along by the comfortably appointed dining room with its neutral décor, its option of formal table or bar stool perching. Traditional and credible Italian food is the mainstay of the La Cucina's menu, which is chock-full of classic dishes just, as the saying goes, like mamma used to make. Ingredients speak for themselves, freshness and flavour shining through in simple dishes accompanied by good Italian wines and beers.
