I make a point of going to this cosy little Italian eaterie when ever I am in Benidorm which is 2 or three times a year.The food is absolutly top class,and the prices are very reasonable. That said,what really makes it special for me is the warmth and friendliness of the staff,who seem genuinly happy to serve you,are always cheerful and attentive without being over bearing.Also you can take your time and relax,there is no pressure to hurry. 100% ,give it a try I honestly think you will return,

Often overlooked In a town full of restaurants, Cantonera is a brilliant local Italian place. The pizzas are about the best you can get - a crisp base used to contain the toppings, not the doughy mass that you often get elsewhere. There are frequently pizza specials on offer - this summer the Pizza San Roque has been the pizza to have, with a topping of minced chicken. Absolutely gorgeous! The staff are so friendly, and although little English is spoken the menu is available in English. A couple of tables in the street have been added recently, which makes for a pleasant experience, but in the summer you might value the air-conditioning inside.

A great meal, at a very reasonable price, and the staff actively encourage the sharing of starters and desserts.

We discovered this pizzeria by accident on our last visit to Benidorm but didn't submit
a review then, so this is our considered opinion after three visits.
The welcome you get is wonderful - it's a small family style restaurant with about twelve tables and you are are treated as an old friend by the beautiful lady host and her colleague. The pizzas are home-made very thin crust are and are to die for. There is a bottle of house red wine on each table which costs €8.50 or they do a splendid Rioja for €12.50. Thet staff could not be nicer and the atmosphere is lovely.

One comment - the review in Spanish below is not of this restaurant - it is somewhere else and should be ignored.

We visited twice during our stay (choosing different things) and the food was excellent both times. The owner is very friendly and welcoming. It was her night off when we visited the second time and a young man from Nepal was looking after the restaurant for her. He was very friendly and efficient too.
