La Cucina combats this by being among the biggest places, because it also functions as a normal Italian restaurant. There's plenty of parking, and even if there are a lot of people, you're not elbow to elbow with people like you are at so many other places. Overall, just a better atmosphere.
I always get eggs, toast, home fries, and bacon (because the person I usually go with loves bacon but never orders it.) The breakfast is always super fresh, and they have plenty of hot sauce on tap, because they know I like my eggs like I like my women. Spicy.
When I went there for lunch, I had the Chicken Parm sandwich, I wasn't planning on going to lunch that day, but my father didn't want to golf because it was too windy. (coughcoughWIMPcough)
The chicken parmesan was great, and they had an awesome balsamic pasta salad that is a great fry substitute.
Would I recommend La Cucina for breakfast or lunch? Yes.
Dinner review coming soon!
