A few helpful tips about La Cucina on NCL

The portion sizes

The sizes of each starter, pasta dish, and main course are relatively huge. If you’re not terribly hungry and want to try the amazing food, get a table and have just one of the pasta dishes! It’ll fill you up and you won’t have to use a dining package credit (though you can if you want)

SHARE if you can! No one will go hungry and you can have a taste of everything when sharing. Given the portion sizes, there will be plenty to go around.

Reserve a table

La Cucina restaurant is one of the more popular on NCL, so it often fills up for premium dining times. Reserve as soon as you can.

Availability of some food ingredients

When you take a look at the La Cucina NCL menu, it’s important to know that there may be availability issues in some regions. For example, on a recent Mediterranean itinerary, the Osso Bucco wasn’t available from the suppliers in the region.

Onda by Scarpetta

The newer Italian concept found on Norwegian is now called Onda by Scarpetta. We’ve tried the restaurant on the NCL Encore, and found it to be equal if not superior in some ways to La Cucina.
