Had a great meal. The menu was typical Italian, with lots of pizza and pasta, but also had other specialities such as scallops. Very good value for money. Would go again.

I dined here while staying for a night in Launceston. Service was okay, nothing spectacular. Food was really good tho, and there was plenty of it. Would go and dine there again.

Sunday night in Launceston - many restaurants closed, so we found the only one that was open & looked family friendly. Rustic old-fashioned restaurant, staff were very helpful & accommodating. Service was good, meals took forever to arrive but the restaurant was two-thirds full and the waitress said "sorry we're not normally this busy"... The staff bought pencils over for our two little kids to colour in on the paper tablecloth which was fabulous & kept them occupied... With regards to the food - it was acceptable but was bistro quality rather than restaurant quality. My steak was on the tough-side & overall the meals were nothing to rave about, but by the same token, we still had a lovely relaxed evening here.

Had an evening meal at this restaurant recently. Good deletion of food and wine. Very nicely presented and tastes amazing. I had one of the chicken dishes which was superb. The cassata for desert finished the meal off beautifully. Tip - order the garlic bread - a huge pizza type serving. Yummmm

Friends, family and I have been enjoying consistently great dining experiences at La Cantina for years. It has been a place we have chosen to celebrate birthdays and special occasions as we know the quality of food and service will help make it a great night! Friendly wait staff and a warm, pleasant atmosphere complement the fresh food well. I have enjoyed the spaghetti bolognaise many times - big servings make it great value for money also. Its location in George Street makes it the perfect place to enjoy a meal before heading out to explore Launceston's nightlife. If you're after high quality pasta in Launceston, served in a warm, homely Italian atmosphere then give La Cantina's a go!
