Being Italian, and cooking a great deal of Italian, I tend to be fussy. Atmosphere was open and very family oriented. Menu was very expansive and included non Italian offerings. The delivery was rushed. We had not finished the appetizer and the soup and salad was delivered. Then, not being done with the salad, which was family style bowls, dinner... More

Typical American-Italian restaurant in terms of food and decor. We ordered off the early-bird special menu as we were told that the portions are a bit smaller and the prices are a bit less. The portions are very small and the prices were not that impressive. All meals include a salad and bread, both of which are unremarkable except if... More

Arrived after work at 3:30 for early bird dinner. They had 7 of us seated in a booth for 6. We asked to switch to a nearby table for 8, which was next to another empty table for 8. As we were having our salad, the hostess told us that the tables were reserved at 5pm for a party of... More

I have lived in Framingham for over 30 years. This has consistently been a wonderful place to go. Food is well prepared, very reasonably priced and service is always friendly.

I don't get into this neighborhood too often, so I hadn't eaten at La Cantina in years. I remember that the food was always good and the place itself was kind of old. Well, they've had a makeover (my waitress said it was finished in Fall 2013) and the place now has great looks to go with great food. Stopped... More

I had dinner with a friend, we ate at the bar. The bartender Teddy was really good, and answered all our questions. I had the veal parmesan it was delicious, it came with pasta and a salad. My friend had the veal cacciatore and said it was very good too.

With my friends yapping about a new French, Korean, Polish, New wave or some other kind of "in", restaurant I returned to an old favorite after many years away. I started eating there in my late teens and now in my late seventies I returned. In a town that had been turned inside out LA Cantina was just the same....or... More

This is one of the best Italian restarants around. You will never be disappointed with any Italian dish at this restaurant. The salad is the best also

I had previously visited this place on three separate occasions and on all visits I was greatly disappointed. Few years later I found myself there today because my brother and his wife suggested we go eat there. Of course In my head I was like "oh no"! Anyway, I must say that from the food to the service, everything was... More

The food was served as requested and the waitress was perfect.. They also have a glass of house wine for $4.99, which we took advantage of...They... More
