“Best italian restaurant in town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

From the entrance to the dessert what a fabulous experience, the servers are very polite and make everything they could to make your meal a fantastic experience. As soon as we seated the servers bring us appetizers (italian sausage + slice of pizzas) and at the dessert he was very kind by bringing us not one dessert but other ones to having us taste it. And the best is that it is not at all expensive, $140 for 4 people including glass of wines. I highly recommend it!
The only downside is the area, but honestly who cares when you are having a great meal.

“food-atmosphere-service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

cantina is one of these restaurants where i can truly say-"i've never-ever had a bad meal"...........reality is that the food is fantastic, whether their lasagna and other pastas, or their amazing osso buco or veal chop or fish..............the restaurant is comfortable, the waitors have been there 4 ever and now what you'd like including which wine(s).......the pricing is fair, especially considering the quality and taste............and, for fuss pots like me, easy and safe to park, no city fees or 12 dollar and more valet fees.............

“Can't be Beat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

This is a great Italian restaurant. Servers who know how to service customers. Food to die for. A place where you could easily spend a night just eating and drinking. The minute that you walk in, you feel like you've been going to the restaurant for all of your life. Try it. You will not be disappointed.

“Amazing!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

If you love Authentic Italian, Friendly service, not in a tourist area. This is the Restaurant to visit. It truly is a hidden gem. You know its good when you see Rene Angelil there.
