“Much More than Pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2014

Best Pizzeria!!, great taste and flavours, sauces to die for, especially love their Antipasti, especially Green Shell Mussels. On time take away or great in house dining experience.

“Awful food. Crappy service. Bad overall experience”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014

I've never had to ask for a pizza and have all the ingredients centered on the dough, served by an inattentive waiter with a flat coke that arrived half an hour later. Awful. Just awful. Taste? Bread & butter is better.

“Everything that some many places in T&T are lacking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2014

The one thing we seem to never be able to enjoy on a consistent basis is great service in Trinidad and Tobago. La Cantina has turned this idea around by offering guests great service through their well trained and very friendly staff. As someone who has eaten here and in the Crown Point location many times, I can say without a doubt that the pizza is the best I've had in Trinidad, it is prepared FRESHLY the fastest (try ordering over the phone and picking it up and it not being ready, it always is) and it is only made better through the great service and the restaurant's ambiance. If you need to find good pizza in Trinidad look no further.

“Quite good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2014 via mobile

This is a pleasant place. Easy parking, satisfying pizza, wine and desserts passable, reasonable price, lovely high-ceilings and windows. Service last Saturday night was very good for Port of Spain, welcoming and once they got going, friendly and efficient. But, we were left alone for about five minutes before anyone attended to us and for an Italian restaurant, not to be immediately offered anything to nibble on while you wait is a trifle difficult to understand. The noise level seemed a bit over the top too, not because of the crowd but because of the acoustics, those ceilings are real high and the windows have no curtains. If they fixed up these little things, it would be a top class place.

“Yummy pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2014

My first experience with La Cantina was at the Tobago location. The pizza was excellent. I was therefore thrilled when they opened in Port of Spain. They have not disappointed. Great ambience and yummy pizza!
