We went along to La Cantina on the 13th November for my wifes 40th Birthday, it was our first visit but most certainly will not be our last. We were made to feel very welcome on our arrival by the friendly, smiling staff. As it was a Tuesday we were offered a midweek menu, 2 courses for £11.95. I was a little worried that the selection of starters and mains may reflect in this price....no need to, the choices on offer were fantastic. I had the anchovies and Sarah had the salmon, both were very tasty and a really generous size. Sarah had ordered the risotto for her main and was told it could take up to 35 minutes as it is freshly prepared. This more than suited us both as there is nothing worse than having your mains put in front of you as soon as you have finished your starters!! It certainly was worth the wait anyway. I went for the chicken, which again was a very food sized portion and packed with flavour. I had also ordered some potatoes and veg to go along with my chicken thinking the portion size may have been a bit small, again the size of these portions was very generous and packed full of flavour, and more than enough to share between two. We went for the house red which was a very pleasant wine. To end the evening Sarah chose to have some chocolate cake (it was her Birthday after all) which was really nice. I went for my usual cheese and crackers to finish, which again was a very generous size with some lovely cheeses and fruit on my plate. I did find the crackers a little on the dry side though and maybe a selection of biscuits would be a better idea?? We loved it so much that we even signed up to the cookery school evening that the restaurant does, and we are both really looking forward to this at the beginning of December. This was a really lovely evening at a really lovely restaurant. The food is all freshly prepared with lots and lots of flavour. We will certainly be going back, soon, and i have made many recommendations to friends and colleagues already, thankyou for a lovely evening.
