I have been to La Cantina 3 times in the last year. like most decent restaurants in Chester, it isn't cheap, but the food, and the friendly welcome make it worth it. The menu is always well thought out, usually with something I haven't tried before (and I have a wide ranging taste) they clearly take great care over selecting their ingredients, and as a result, I changed from a raw tomato hater into a tomato liker overnight, thanks to their fabulous tomato Salad with Bruschetta. Theit Risotto's are to die for, the lamb was melt in the mouth, pancetta utterly delicious and sorbets are fabulous. (I'm afraid I still prefer Delia's Tiramisu though)!
I went there for my Birthday in February, and their card machine had broken, but they were very apologetic, and said they'd be happy to wait if we wanted to nip down the street to get some cash.
I've also been on a cookery course at La Cantina, and would happily recommend that to anyone interested in food, we all had a go at cooking both the main course and dessert. We learned to make proper risotto's. the owner was happy to make changes to the planned menu that evening to accommodate the groups differing tastes. we had a super evening! Will go back for my next birthday!
