Set in idyllic Italian district, this is a solid choice for dining. The restaurant appears small from the outside but once inside you're overtaken by the dining room. The standard menu and daily specials should give you plenty of delectable options. End with a fresh cup of Espresso coffee and a... read more

Travelling with the family in Italy for ten days, this was one of the restaurants we will remember.

This restaurant was recommend to us by a nearby winery we toured, Fattoria Le Pupille (something like that, not sure on the spelling). The atmosphere was wonderful. It was boar season, so others in the group tried various specialties. I had a delicious ravioli type dish that was wonderful. We spent a leisurely late lunch and enjoyed some local wine... More

We had been traveling in the Tuscan country side for 4 days and had eaten many meals....but Cantina was one of the best, if not the best. You often tend to find very similar dishes across all restuarants but Cantina introduces you to knew dishes (esp the pastas) with different flavors that are FANTASTIC. They are very generous with their... More

Set in idyllic Italian district, this is a solid choice for dining. The restaurant appears small from the outside but once inside you're overtaken by the dining room. The standard menu and daily specials should give you plenty of delectable options. End with a fresh cup of Espresso coffee and a Amaro.

We had 2 meals here that were very good, great selection of wines. A little bit lacking in charisma when empty but when lots of Italians are dining the place changes.
