Straightforward and yummy

Yes. An authentic taste in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. Knocks the sox off the other place around the corner. Go. Booking essential.

Really excellent place! Family-run by people who care about the food, service and their customers. The chef works at an open counter at the back of the single room, and so obviously enjoys his job - how great is that?! Plentiful food, all excellent quality and superbly cooked - the cold and hot 'antipasti' dishes are the best we had... More

The food at La Cantina is exceptional local fare. the staff excellent! we are vegetarian travellers and often feel like we miss out on excellent local cuisine because it cannot be customised for our needs. so the response we got from the lovely lady serving our table was a refreshing one. we asked her what veg options were available. and...

Wonderful, freshly prepared lunch! Only 8 tables with an exposed kitchen makes for a wonderful retreat from a very busy tourist area. Reservations are recommended as it is definitely worth the visit. Efficient wait staff with a very diverse menue. Highly recommended!!!

Really good Pugliese meal at this restaurant. Visited on the back of previous Tripadvisor review and not disappointed. We phoned ahead to book which was a good move as it's really small and even on a Tuesday evening it was full. Antipasti were fantastic, everything really local and it's an open kitchen so you can see everything prepared in front... More

So glad I read the reviews and acted on them. This was the first place we ate on arrival and so glad we did. The pasta with chillies was amazing the patatas bravas very moreish and the dessert what can I say. Each mouthful of the chocolate souffle brought about an involuntary enjoyment moan. I told the chef I was... More

Absolutely wonderful food, wine and service. So glad we booked (having read the reviews and the advice to book)! We tried to find the restaurant by entering it's name into googlemaps but it took us to a different street with the same name in Alberobello (even with a little picture of a knife and fork marking La Cantina!) It is... More

We ate at La Cantina, at the suggestion of our hotel. They even made the reservations. I'm sure glad that they did, as people were being turned away in droves, as they were full of reserved tables. Great to watch the chef and his staff, from our table. Great food and a chocolate souffle to die for. Thank you Le... More

The Chef cooks in an open kitchen part if the dining area. The restaurant is the perfect size serving only about 10 tables. Great care in the ingredients, cooking and service is evident. We had steal and meat in tomato sauce, very good. The only thing I did not like much were the almond cookies dessert.
