For my son's 11th birthday dinner he gave me a brief - we had to go somewhere which was a little different and not in the area we live, it had to have good atmosphere, and it had to have extensive pasta and meat dishes. After searching for good Italian restaurants I came across Il Cantuccio and after reading other reviews I decided this would be the perfect choice!
Mario immediately took over the arrangements. He offered to organise a cake for me and have it delivered to the restaurant. He kept in touch as though it was a massive 40th birthday party not a simple 11 year old party for 8 people. When we arrived, he immediately wished Luke a happy birthday which set him up for the night! We were given bruschetta; garlic and herb bread on the house plus port at the end of the night. Mario fussed over Luke and to top it all off, the food was extremely good! The cake came out with candles and sparklers and everyone sang Happy Birthday - I haven't seen my son glow with pride like that for a while!
It was a lovely evening - as my son said when he went to bed - the perfect night. I would highly recommend Il Cantuccio, the food is delicious, the atmosphere is wonderful and cosy and the attention from staff, outstanding! Thank you Mario - we will be back.
