About La Mia Cucina Ristorante
Stroll along 17th St., between Lighthouse and Laurel in Pacific Grove and you will find one of the Peninsula’s favorite spots, La Mia Cucina. This little jewel, with its fresh ambiance and tantalizing menu and fantastic wine list, is popular with everyone. The colorful European advertising posters that enliven the walls, are “originals, not reproductions.”
That phrase is accurate in describing La Mia Cucina itself. From the comfortable linen white decor, accented beautifully by those turn-of-the-century posters, to the hand-crafted entrees and desserts, everything about La Mia Cucina says fresh and original. Owner Michael’s specialty, his ravioli dishes, are a renowned local favorite, and for good reason. They are handmade, with all the care that only a lifetime of creative food combining can bring. In addition to pasta, La Mia Cucina is known for it's fresh fish, house made sausage and meat specials. The desserts are made in-house by his wife Paula and the service is personal and inviting.
