Rigatoni with sausage and Gorgonzola to start (cooked to perfection and a very generous portion too) followed by octopus, boiled potatoes and peas which was very tasty. Washed down with the house red wine all for €10 a head. Best meal I've had in Italy in the last 3 weeks regardless of price. Specials menu changes every time I come... More

We had the suggestion from the hotel concierge and everything was "almost" as expected: very simple and familiar environment, food preparation simple as well, but very good quality (pasta with "alici" and fresh tomatoes was delicious) and people from the restaurant were helpful and kind. What we found astonishingly low was the price we paid for the bill. Folks if... More

This has a good reputation and is well used by locals. We did not find our reception particularly welcoming, but the food was good home cooking style food and very good value.

Very good local food at local affordable prices...litre of house wine €5.50. Worth a visit. The locals filled this place by 8pm so if you haven't booked get there at 7.30pm.

A humble neighborhood trattoria that attracts loyal locals. It's often difficult to find a table, which attests to the popularity of this Cassino neighborhood trattoria. Try the sausage with broccoli, a specialty of this area...

We were wandering thru the streets of Cassino looking for a place to eat -- before 7:30pm which in Italy is a rarity... We happened upon La Cantina and were pleasantly surprised. We were seated quickly (since it was still early by Italian-dinner-standard-time) and soon the place filled up. Service was great and the food was excellent! Pastas were outstanding... More

Food was good, the service was a bit slow but friendly. The price is unbeatable. I had gnocchi and bisteca. Both were reasonably good in taste.

We have been favoring this restaurant for a long time, this is a family run business. Da Leo is the maitre'd , waiter, and owner. His father in law brings the wine and water and bread. His mother in law supervises in the kitchen, and at busy times, even his wife helps out. Always cheerful, owners, clients, everyone. Plus, the... More
