A lovely small italian restaurant with good pizza and lovely pasta. We ate a sitdown dinner and the atmosphere and music in this lovely restaurant is just perfect.

We ordered take away another evening but it was not as good as the sitdown dinner even if it was good too.

The house wine is delicious!

Lovely staff who takes very good care of every guest and serves with a smile!

Loved this little restaurant. We were staying up the walk in Firostefani and walked by and decided to try. So glad we did! They have a fairly large menu consisting mainly of pasta and pizza. The first night, my husband and I started with bruschetta and then split a ravioli pasta and the Pizza Piccante. It was all wonderful! My favorite was the pizza, the ingredients were so fresh and it was cooked perfectly; I'm getting hungry just writing about it. We also shared the panna cotta for dessert - excellent!

Oh and how could I forget, we also had a liter of house wine for only ~15EUR, which seemed to be unheard of compared to every other restaurant we visited. Our entire bill was around 45EUR. Needless to say we came back again the next night. I highly recommend if you're looking for a break from the traditional Greek food you'll find everywhere else!

We thought we would like a bit of a change after having greek food day and night for a few days. It was a good call. Food was lovely there. We just had pasta and they were very well cooked. Tiramisu was one of the best I had. When we chatted to one of the hotel staff about the food afterward, he confirmed to us that Il Cantuccio does good food as everything is made fresh and from scratch. Apparently he used to work there himself. He also told us that the italian couple who own the restaurant (husband as the chef and wife as front of house) used to own an Italian restaurant in London before they moved to Firostefani.
Highly recommend!

Worries because we found it on the last day so I only ate once...
excellent pizza (last time i ate pizza like this one was in Rome), salad, pasta,
prices very good and the staff excellent.
it has no view but it is very nice, if someone goes to Santorini definitely eat at this Italian restaurant.
