Tell me it's not closing?!

I heard recently that La Cantina was up for sale. I hope it stays open, as I adore the food here. Admittedly I have not sat down in a while, but I regularly get Italian Takeaway. There pizza are the best I've ever had!

Myself and my husband ate here on a Sunday evening for the first time in probably 2 years. We enjoyed our food. It was very tasty as always. Wine was poor and tasted very cheap. There were 2 very young girls waitressing who lacked experience. I don't know if they were just there for that evening or if they worked... More

On a cold depressing Thursday evening my girlfriend and I decided to grab a bite to eat somewhere central in Dundalk. We ended up in La Cantina just off Park St, and I'm very glad we did. It's a place I used to visit years ago when restaurants didn't seem as much a luxury as they do now, and the... More
