We booked this restaurant as it was close to where we were staying and tired after a day sightseeing. We made a reservation but not really necessary as only one other couple eating. Having said this the food was excellent and the chef came to the table and explained the menu to us and his wife was extremely chatty and... More

I don't know why we haven't been here before, but our first visit certainly won't be our last. A really helpful phone call about the menu when we booked set the tone for our visit, and the service, food and ambience of the restaurant were all excellent. The food is gloriously fresh and a complete change from the standard dishes... More

Visited again for a Saturday night meal. All of our party enjoyed the quality food for very reasonable prices. The ambience is good and the staff are very welcoming and professional. We also returned as a couple on a weekday for a pizza deal. The food again was excellent. We had a chat with the chef which further convinced of... More

This is the best Italian restaurant I have been to in a long time. The food is authentic Italian with fresh ingredients and the staff look after you very well. It is a family run restaurant and the atmosphere was very friendly and Italian. The cost was very reasonable - I was actually expecting the final bill to be much... More

My family and I have visited La Cantina on several occasions. The freshly cooked authentic Italian food is always delicious and it is obvious that there is no skimping on ingredients as the meals are of excellent quality and cooked fresh on order. The service provided is second to none with very friendly staff who on every occasion make us... More

Have been to La Cantina at the weekend and mid week, particularly like going mid week due to the excellent value. Very authentic Italian food, we had steak, fish, seafood and pizza and thorough enjoyed every meal. Very attentive and friendly service with great attention to detail. Lovely family run Italian.

La Cantina is our local neighbourhood eaterie, and we have had many, many happy celebrations, meals out with friends, meals out with groups, and simple nights out when we simply couldn't be bothered to cook at home. We've just come back home from a truly wonderful night out at La Cantina, the food was superb, the welcome warm, and atmosphere... More

My boyfriend and I visited on Saturday night for the second time this year. We had a starter and a pasta main course each with a dessert to share plus a large glass of wine for me and (lots of) beers for my boyfriend and it came to £30 each. Each dish was delicious. The first time we visited we... More

Pros Generously portioned fish main that was very tasty. Roll Sirloin dish was very good with high quality meat. The fussy member of our party was accommodated with a pizza which wasn't on the menu. Pleasant service and ambiance. Real ales available. Cons Warm Peroni. Problem with pipe in the toilet. In conclusion, an enjoyable experience. We will return.
