“Quite good”
Reviewed May 19, 2014 via mobile

This is a pleasant place. Easy parking, satisfying pizza, wine and desserts passable, reasonable price, lovely high-ceilings and windows. Service last Saturday night was very good for Port of Spain, welcoming and once they got going, friendly and efficient. But, we were left alone for about five minutes before anyone attended to us and for an Italian restaurant, not to be immediately offered anything to nibble on while you wait is a trifle difficult to understand. The noise level seemed a bit over the top too, not because of the crowd but because of the acoustics, those ceilings are real high and the windows have no curtains. If they fixed up these little things, it would be a top class place.

“Yummy pizza”
Reviewed May 11, 2014

My first experience with La Cantina was at the Tobago location. The pizza was excellent. I was therefore thrilled when they opened in Port of Spain. They have not disappointed. Great ambience and yummy pizza!

“Not the best Restaurant in Port of Spain”
Reviewed February 15, 2014

First of all.... after confirming reservations twice, they spelt my name wrong, so they could not find my reservation right away. Second, where I was seated was not private at all, my table was right below the cashier and separated by a glass where the take out customers could see right through. Third, I ordered Mozzarella Sticks and Marinara Sauce, the Marinara sauce was served COLD!!! Fourth, Pizza was average...it somewhat tasted like " Sada Roti and Cheese".
This is my first and last experience here.

“Yummy Italian Pizza”
Reviewed February 12, 2014

Delicious thin crust pizza but toppings can be sparse sometimes. Tobago pizza is great. Service is also good, no major complaints.
