To put it straight forward the food was great and the service good. What really happened is we booked a table at 9:30 PM. We arrived there at 9:40, the restaurant was closed. After knocking on the door the waiter came and told us they were closed. I obvious argued with him. After a 10 minute debate and the chef's... More

We where recommended this restaurant by a friend. One of the best meals we have ever had. The staff, and the owner Dominic where very professional and helpful. The food was beyond my expectations. Try this restaurant and you will be pleasantly surprised. we look forward to going back on our next trip to Montreal.

This is an authentic Italian Restaurant well located in northern Montréal. A bit expensive but very good quality food. A must place, to be with the jetset of Montreal.

If you like traditional Italian food you can't go wrong '' La Cantina '' is the typical old style Italian restaurant with an extended menu. The food is excellent, I tried pasta, fish, anti-pasta, veal and I was never disappointed. The waiters are friendly, they will recommend inexpensive wines to go with your meal. The prices are very reasonable. This... More

As Always meal was made with freshest and finest ingredients and cooked to beyond perfection . Service as always superb. As someone who frequents restaurants and has been to same restaurants many times they are occasionally a "down day" or "not the usual" . NEVER at La Cantina have I experienced a disappointing meal in the last 20 yrs.

We had a very mediocre meal. The sauce had no flavor to it. The lasagna was very disappointing. The antipasto had chewy inedible calamari and a huge pile of marinated eggplant that was not very good. There were 2 different kinds of marinated mushrooms and 2 cold asparagus spears rounding out the plate. Bizarre combo and we left most of... More

This is our go to place for great authentic Italian. Aromatic sauce and wonderfully fresh Ravioli, friendly service and great atmosphere. This is one of those restaurants that is always the right place for a great dining experience.
