Reviewed July 12, 2014

We just wanted a quick meal and the service was good, although the decor is very dated the ambience was quite nice. The prices are moderate so good value for the quality

“Excellent food and service”
Reviewed July 8, 2014

My husband and I had dinner here tonight and it was delicious. The staff are excellent - polite and fast but with the ability to make us feel valued guests in their restaurant. I ordered two entree serves and they were both quite large. The flavours of both our meals were delicious. This is a restaurant I would highly recommend.

“Fantastic Service”
Reviewed July 6, 2014 via mobile

Visited with the family with three young kids. Service was great and extremely thoughtful, from the choice of tables to a customisable menu. The seafood servings are also pretty generous.

“Excellent family atmosphere”
Reviewed June 22, 2014

We checked this out on Trip Advisor before we went here as our hotel was in the next street.We were not disappointed and this was one of the best meals out we had in ages. I would highly recommend it for families as well as adults. Be warned though, they do not serve pizzas and there is no background Muzak - the latter is a positive!!!

“Honest and friendly Italian Restaurant”
Reviewed June 21, 2014

We have been going to il Cantuccio for many, many years and continue to enjoy the honest, friendly and welcoming experience. Mario and family continue to provide an enjoyable dinning experience. The food is always fresh and cooked to your liking, if you enjoy no fuss, down to earth Italian food, give Il Cantuccio a try for sure, you will not be disappointed.
