“Everything was great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

From the staff (very accommodating) to the decor (contemporary) and the food (Italian) everything was AMAZING! You need to go and get a pizza, or the salad or anything. It's just the best. The owners are the nicest people, and everything on the menu (that we tried) is phenomenal. The prices are fair, the portions are more than enough. The pizzas are not to be missed, and the desserts are spectacular (the tiramisu is made with actual mascarpone).

“Great location, food & hospitality”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2014 via mobile

The owners spent a lot of time developing their product, perfecting the pizza dough and creating an extensive menu of options featuring local and seasonal ingredients. The pizzas are great, but they also serve good pasta dishes and salads. The location on the ring road is a great place to linger and watch village France drift by. The personable owners speak good English and readily recognize and welcome you if you return. We ate here 3 times in a 2-week stay and strongly recommend it for an informal meal at either lunch or dinner.

“Good food, excellent atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2014

We were in St Remy for the weekend and were recommended to La Cantina by our hotel. We loved it. The food was very good, friendly owners, professional staff. Wide choice of italian dishes for menu. Ingredients of Excellent quality. The desserts really, really good. Exceptional homemade raspberry sorbets, pannacotta made by the wife of the owner, a must!, delicious. We booked the restaurant just before leaving the hotel and managed to get a table for2. We saw many clients arriving after us and couldn't get a table, so we would advise a booking if you want to try this worthwhile restaurant!

“Outstanding--one of the best pizzas ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

This place is oh so good. We were on a tour from our cruise ship and told we would need to get lunch on our own in St Remy. The problem was that the bus back to the ship would leave at 12:30, and the restaurants don't really open till 12. But Claud and Dana took great care of us. They took our order before official opening time and had it ready to eat at 12 sharp. The best pizza we had our entire trip. Very thin crust, simple and delicious. Claud suggested a wine that was less expensive that the one we had picked, and it went with the pizza perfectly. I wish I could eat here every day!

“simple, affordable,straightforward Italian food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014 via mobile

Tucked on the sidewalk of a busy street in the heart of town, it lacks atmosphere but the warm welcome and kind service make up for that. English was spoken by two of the three servers we encountered. The rocket salad was superb. Artichoke hearts were just that, lightly marinated artichoke hearts in a bowl, which were very good. The pizza is good, but not like one finds in Italy. The spaghetti bolognese was a little bland but acceptable with a little olive oil plus salt and pepper. After all of the rich French food we have had, this was very enjoyable.

There was a mix of tourists and locals that made it even nicer. Tough to beat for the price.
