My wife and I were strolling through Greve before most restaurants were open (around 6:30pm). We were looking at the menu posted outside La Cantina when the owner came out and explained that his mother did the cooking using locally sourced foods in authentic Tuscan recipes. He ended his tantalizing description of the menu with the most convincing argument of all: " And...we're open!" How could we refuse? We dined outside on a beautiful May evening and watched as more and more visitors discovered the charms of La Cantina. Our meal began with two complimentary glasses of Prosecco, followed by large individual pizzas (the artichoke was especially good).

All in all, a most pleasant dining experience. Highly recommended.

Again I put a lot of emphasis on first impressions. The staff were very welcoming (which may not surprise you) they weren't just touting for trade they came over as people who were very proud of their product and that's what you got. Very good servings and most importantly very good quality food. The meal started with a FREE glass of Proseco and after your very good meal a FREE dessert if you could eat it

The food here is good especially the tiramisu which was freshly made and melted in the mouth.
The staff give you a complimentary small glass of Prosecco on arrival together with some seasoned cooked pizza base that is very moorish.
The staff are mainly young and aim to please - their English is great. The inside eating area (there is also an outdoor area) has vaulted ceilings and provides a warm and atmospheric environment in which to dine.
The prices are not too bad, however it is not a super cheap meal but compared to many other places in town it is very competative

We found this restaurant accidently and entered doubtfully. Pizzas, pastas and wine were excellent and very tasty.
Don't miss this place. Staff very friendly.
