Casual eatery La Cucina Café Pizzeria and Spaghetti House slakes hunger pangs with a menu of traditional Italian fare. Explore the creamy realms of the pasta vegetali ($12), penne pasta flanked by a fleet of spinach, toasted pine nuts, and zucchini. The panini Toscano ($10) elevates bread's original function as a pocket protector, loading the slices with chicken, prosciutto, and pesto mayonnaise. La Cucina's skillful pizza architects slather crispy dough foundations with myriad edible scaffoldings, inviting patrons to scale pies such as the Al Forno, topped with pepperoni, genoa salami, italian sausage, and bacon ($10.50–$26). The wine list features red and white varietals available by the glass or bottle, including Ernest & Julio Gallo Twin Valley Vineyards zinfandel ($5/glass) and Stony Hollow merlot from Chile ($5/glass). For dessert, the vanilla bean gelato sundae ($6) cools off even the most heated dinnertime debates over the genetic makeup of sporks.
La Cucina Cafe
In the kitchen of La Cucina Café, pots full of fresh pasta and house-made sauces simmer on the stove. Chefs whip up classic Italian cream sauce, pesto, and marinara to blanket dishes from penne primavera to chicken parmigiana. And they only pop in pizzas after diners customize crusts with such ingredients as genoa salami, kalamata olives, and hot banana peppers. The same ingredients tuck into wraps and Panini sandwiches. Even the desserts are decidedly Italian: there's cocoa-sprinkled tiramisu and a vanilla-bean gelato sundae topped with warm blueberry-and-peach compote.
