“Yum yum!!”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

The staff were very friendly, the food was great and the atmosphere was fun. I had a great time and will be back! Once ordered the food arrived within minutes. Was very fast service. Loved it. I would say it is great for a trip with the family, friends or as a couple.

“Good but not as good as the one in Tobago”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

The quality of the pizza here is not as great as the pizza in Tobago but it is still much better than the pizza everywhere else in Trinidad. The pizza is a bit too think and floppy but overall still great tasting and good value for your money...I'd definitely go again but hope that they keep up the standard of the Tobago restaurant.

“Annoying maitre'd”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

I am not a pizza lover so there is not much on the menu for me. The cocktails are horrible - very sweet and syrupy. Had the mojito on my first visit and it tasted like syrup. Had another cocktail on my 2nd visit and that too was very sweet. Had my usual margarita on my 3rd and it was good. The maitre'd is always hovering around and he and the staff are continuously creating new seating for the customers. This is vey annoying and distracting. The first night I was sitting at a table for 4 and as 2 of the guests left the staff quickly came and took the chairs for another table. Then last Friday when I went after 2 of the 4 of us left the maitre'd came and asked us to move to a table for 2 instead. I was livid. Who treats their guests like that?
Additionally the restaurants lacks atmosphere. It looks like a glorigfied Pizza Hut. Would not be going back there.

“La Cantina- An Awe-Inspiring Experience”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

La Cantina is an authentic Italian restaurant that has exploded onto the local Trinidad market with great finesse, and aplomb. The staff is extremely courteous and supportive of your dining experience. The food is sumptuous, and appeals to every hue of your palate leaving you with a memorable experience and a promise to yourself to return again and again. I have also held business meetings where private dining facilities are available and have received unalloyed positive feedback from my associates on the excellent service, food and atmosphere. Highly recommended! I will visit again, and again! Hats off to the Chefs, staff and management

“Great pizza”
Reviewed March 28, 2013 via mobile

The restaurant is over elaborate unlike the version in Tobago need to adapt to successful recipe from Tobago or may not survive despite having a great pizza!
