Description: A new restaurant in this unspoiled mediaeval hill town. It is run by Deborah, the charming daughter of Daria, owner of Monticchiello's famed La Porta. I hosted a wedding eve dinner there on July 7th - the first big party Deborah had catered. The food, wine, service and ambience were ll outstanding. I can't praise the generosity of spirit which animated the whole event highly enough.

My family had a very special wedding dinner at La Cantina. Thirty of us ate the most delicious and beautiful dinner matched perfectly with top local wines. We couldn't have been happier with the environment and the service. What a special event in a special place!!! I highly recommend it for groups or couples.

The steak was Fred Flintstone sized and was seriously tasty! We also had delicious risotto and braised guinea fowl (tasted like what my grandmother made when she was alive!). The service was top notch and the owner was extremely nice and warm. The topper, the tiramisu was fantastic! This town is so cute, which added to the ambiance.

The owner, Deborah, is the daughter of the owner of Osteria La Porta...her knowledge of the restaurant business has been well developed even before opening the doors to La Cantina. The chef weaves magic when preparing the dishes...which are as pleasant to the eye as they are to the mouth. With a sofisticated styling and comfortable setting; supplemented with excellent wines. You feel comfortable and welcome and very well taken care of. Our server was knowledgable, attentive without being overly present, and Deborah was greeting and conversing with all of her partons. A very nice "upscale" eatery in a most unassuming town.

We are lucky enough to have a second home in Monticchiello and we count ourselves very fortunate to have a choice of wonderful restaurants in such a small village. We returned to La Cantina last Friday and had a splendid evening. Our hostess, Deborah, is so friendly and charming, and the food so delicious that we shall return again and again - as we shall, of course, to La Porta, run by Debora's mother, Daria.

I had the opportunity to return to La Cantina recently and the quality of the food is even better. A "Cucina Nuova Italiana" is emerging I think, fresh, seasonal ingredients, local recipes but presented in a very contemporary and imaginative way and decent helpings. "Wheat risotto with mushrooms ", tasty and filling for a wet November evening and great wines which Debora can advise upon.The staff are enthusiastic and welcoming. Visit.
