Consistently Yummy

We pick up pizza and fanny's dressing periodically. Have been to a few functions recently and they have improved. The new renovations look very spiffy too!

We had not seen the new open layout to the dining room and it was a real improvement. The staff was friendly and each of us enjoyed our meals. The food came out quickly, the large portions left no room for dessert. We have not eaten at La Cantina in a few years, but with the changes made I am... More

Recently stopped here for a quick meal.....very disappointed. We were there two years ago and enjoyed it. Unfortunately...not the same....Had to ask for drinks, basket of bread. One of us ordered an eggplant sub. It consisted of a dribble of sauce and three small fried pieces of eggplant. Waitress removed plates as other members of our party were still eating.... More

Good food, friendly staff, clean and pretty. Wedding buffet was delicious but set up could have been better. The buffet table was against the wall, which prevented serving from both sides and slowed down the line. We were at a small (less than 60) wedding, so this should not have happened.

I had no idea that there'd been a remodel, with new amenities and a huge parking lot. The menu is classic and yummy. I know you do your own salad dressing, but next time I'm getting it on the side because my greens were swimming. The bread is fresh, the linguini with clam sauce was perfect, the service (thanks, Kendra!)... More

Went here twice since my partner likes tripe and it's too stinky to cook at home. He really likes theirs. I had the chicken parm lunch special the first time. Small portion- even the pasta. Sauce was OK at best. Salad was torn iceburg with a couple cherry tomatoes, a ring of sliced onion and a strip of green pepper.... More

Went on a Tuesday evening. No wait. Four people shared 2 pizza,s and a large antipasto. Antipasto delicious with a very nice amount of meats, cheeses very little salad. The pizza's were good but not enough toppings for the price you pay.

As a Framingham native this has been an old stand-by Italian food, moderate prices, and generous portions. My last couple of visits with family and friends have been a disappointment. The usual generous portions were skimpy, the sauce was greasy and tasteless and barely covered the pasta, the salad was served with a thimble full of their famous dressing and... More

After years of being a local family friendly restaurant with good affordable food La Cantina expanded and remodeled. Along with the renovation came increased prices and declining service and food quality. Eggplant Parm at $16.95 (breaded fried eggplant with some sauce thrown on), mediocre prime rib, and baked haddock with cracker crumbs that was barely edible. After three recent visits... More

Consistently great appetizers (the grilled risotto is delicious) and salad dressing! The entrees are only average. Marsala was ok, although the mushrooms were weak. The gnocchi was mealy.
